Vessel Walkthrough

A handsome boat on the outside, the interior of the Signature 280 sleeps six: two in the forward V-berth, two in the aft cabin, and two more when the dinette is converted. The galley has storage and counter space; the head is roomy. Privacy curtains separate the sleeping areas from the main cabin, and the upscale decor is a blend of maple joinery, designer fabrics, and vinyl wall coverings. In the cockpit, the helm has tilt wheel and dual flip-up seating. A walk-through windshield provides access to the foredeck. Additional features include: a transom storage locker, cockpit entertainment center, radar arch, and a well-designed engine room with a push-button lift.
