Introducing our newest flagship Bay Boat model, the 281 XSS. Brand new for the 2023 Model Year, this model is in a class by itself. We designed this model to be like no other bay boat or inshore/offshore crossover on the market, thanks to its advanced build methodology, sleek styling, high performance and abundant features. The boat has incredible fishability with a large casting foredeck, large casting rear deck, dual stern bait/fish boxes and ample rod storage.
