Model Introduction
The Wellcraft 290 Coastal is part of the builder's express cruiser-style offshore fishing boat series. A good boat to be aboard offshore in a seaway, the 290 has a good hull form along with features that combine to make it quite seaworthy. The large and well-equipped cockpit, well-designed helm station and comfortable cabin round off the boat's list of virtues. This model is time tested, having been in production since the early 1990s. It's also been updated periodically, including an improved cockpit and bridgedeck design and cabin refinements.

Engine and Propulsion
The 290 Coastal is rated for up to 600 combined outboard hp. Yamaha, Evinrude and Mercury power is available. A gas 5 kW generator with sound shield is also an option, or order the boat with a 70 gal. auxiliary fuel tank, which takes the generator's spot.

Hull DesignThe hull of the Wellcraft 290 Coastal has a sharp entry tapering to 21° of deadrise at the transom. Chine flats add lift and therefore speed at cruise, and increase form stability at rest by providing deeper chine immersion and adding buoyancy outboard.

Walkthrough
Cockpit and topside
The cockpit on this boat is roomy and wide open; it's just over 27 in. deep aft, which along with a couple of other features, makes it safe to fish from in rough water. Those features include a deep toe kick on either side of the cockpit, thanks to the washboard inserts. The Wellcraft 290 Coastal also has excellent nonskid"it grips well underfoot, and it's easy to keep clean with a scrub brush, unlike some nonskid patterns. Coaming bolsters make it comfortable to lean overboard, and there's also a handrail down each side and across the transom at gunwale level to give passengers something to hang onto in the trough. The cockpit deck is 7 in. above the waterline, which keeps the deck dry and provides a welcome measure of reserve buoyancy offshore.
