Carolina Classic 28 Test Video

The 28 was designed and built with one thing in mind: offshore trophy fishing. She is available in gas or diesel and there is a good amount of living room with a head and extensive galley.

Key Features

  • The dry, oversized engine compartment provides roomy access to the hydraulics, generator, pumps and batteries.
  • The bilge runs in a tunnel underneath the gel-coated engine room, so all vital mechanics stay dry and clean.
  • The air intakes are high above the sheer to keep corrosive salt spray out.
  • The command tower encloses the lower helm station and provides a complete second station above.
