The Commander line of boats from Sea Fox has been a very popular choice for the family who boats together and enjoys a variety of activities on the water. The 288 Commander punches out these requirements ably. The 288 is immediately impressive in the ride department.
From a functionality standpoint, both the cruiser and angler alike will find a host of features to enjoy. A pair of pressurized live wells at 30- and 45-gallons respectively keep plenty of bait fish. Matching, insulated 140-quart fish boxes (with overboard pump outs) below deck in the cockpit flank a smartly laid out cockpit tackle center behind the helm. The tackle center features a rigging top and multiple storage compartments along with a 65-quart Yeti drink cooler on an electric sliding track, also included as standard features. As a cruising boat, the 288 offers comfortable seating at every turn. Seating begins at the wrapped foredeck convertible dining table/sun pad with port and starboard opposed bench seating and aft facing high back lounge which addresses a forward-facing sun lounge on the console. Aft seating includes a folding rear bench cockpit seat and twin convertible captain chairs at the helm; this boat is built to accommodate a group. Each of these seating areas easily transforms into a fishing space by either folding away aft or converting into an elevated casting deck forward. The Ultima Hard Top offers abundant shade and comes equipped with recessed LED spreaders as well as multiple storage compartments, a JL audio system, powered moon roof, Climate Cool misting system, and illuminated switching overhead, again; all standard features. The collection of included features on this boat in fact are numerous. Offering items such as an anchor windlass with dual controls, side entry dive door, electric head in the console, and an elaborate high quality JL audio sound system with multiple speakers, amps, and LED lighting as standard included equipment makes it easy to understand the popularity of this line.
As a multi-faceted tool for family driven marine activities the Commander offers a lot. Whether fishing or diving, towing water toys behind, cocktail, lunch, and dinner cruising, or just relaxing at the dock, you will want for nothing on this boat.
