Eastern 248 Center Console

Versatile Family day boat

Eastern 248 Center Console

Eastern’s 248 Center Console offers the kind of powerful hull you’ll see around town docks along the Maine coast. They’re all weather “island boats,” perfect for hauling people, groceries and other necessities to island cottages.

A strong 150-hp outboard, half what her competitors require, is all you need. She can run efficiently at a wide range of speeds, thanks to her Downeast workboat hull with flat run aft and keel. The skipper can throttle up in calm water or back off for comfortable running in slop. She runs solid and stable underway, with engine trim and transom trim tabs to fine-tune her running attitude to load and conditions.
