Sailfish 275 DC

Blending serious fishability with family fun.

by Craig Ritchie
Dad is a serious angler, mom wants to picnic and the kids want to be pulled around in the tube. Serving a number of different needs is the design philosophy behind Sailfish Boats’ new 275 DC, a versatile dual console that’s equally at home having fun with the family or competing in the summer salmon derby.

“The Sailfish 275 DC is the ultimate crossover boat,” says Lynn Darr at North Shore Marina Sales (; 616-604-0234). “It offers the fishing amenities that anglers expect, with comfortable and versatile cockpit seating, and the water sports and picnic features that make it attractive to all members of the family.”

Reflecting Sailfish’s heritage as a serious offshore fishing boat builder, the 275 DC includes six flush-mount rod holders across the transom, along with a 30-gallon insulated bait well integrated into the starboard transom. There are also two in-floor insulated fish boxes.

Tall gunnels help conceal a 58-inch fold-down seat across the transom and an available 48-inch fold-down bench that runs along the port gunnels. A convertible “flip-flop” lounge seat to port — with storage and a cooler in its base — provides forward-facing or rear-facing versatility. There’s further seating up front in the bow: remove the cushions to reveal a large, raised casting deck; or add the available filler cushion to convert this space to a large sunpad. Leave it as-is, pop in the available removable table, and you have the ideal lunch spot.

The helm is cleanly laid out, with plenty of room for a 12-inch multi-function display and storage in the console base. The passenger console conceals a spacious changing room/head compartment.

Befitting a true Great Lakes boat, the walk-through to the bow can be closed off to protect against cold air when running early or late in the season. A large in-floor storage locker between the consoles accommodates large bulky items with ease.

Aft of the helm, a bi-level galley with Corian countertop, recessed sink and stainless steel faucet is a nice touch, whether you’re out with the family or fishing with the guys. An optional refrigerator and grill are also available.
