248 Islander

     Eastern’s 248 Islander adds a touch of elegance for family day-cruising, luncheons, and sunset cruises.  She’d make a comfortable but able race committee boat too.   Her pilothouse includes a companion seat opposite the helm, with a galley/mate unit just aft.  It includes a sink, a refrigerator, trash storage, and an angled double seat facing into the cockpit.  With the 150-hp outboard mounted on a bracket, the closed transom gets a full-width, cushioned bench seat.  Both cockpit seats gain elegant, plush, custom striped upholstery, and a teak-trimmed cockpit table mounts on a pedestal between them. 

To shade the entire cockpit, add an optional full-length cabin-top. With performance similar to the 248 Explorer’s and standard trim tabs to dial in a comfortable ride in any reasonable conditions, the 248 Islander is a seaworthy companion for multiple missions.
