Key West



The 281 Billistic is the most popular of the Billistic line with enough fuel capacity to make it a serious offshore fishing machine, but still easy enough to trailer while being a family friendly recreational platform. Option it to fit your needs with anything from an electric grill refrigerator combo in the 'Kitchen Package' option, or 50 gallon live well and outriggers. Like all Billistics, the 281 is built with a no compromise approach featuring the best of everything from hull construction to wiring, with special attention to access for service to keep it all running and dependable. Billistic Boats will not be available at all Key West Boat outlets.
