243 DC

2024 NauticStar Deck Boats 243 DC
The 243 DC is the perfect combination of size and functionality. It offers an enclosed, step-down dressing room with optional portable head; wraparound seating in the cockpit; and a pressurized water system that services the galley with an optional transom shower. Plush seating bolsters the cockpit and bow with a transitional sun pad and easy-locking storage. Two bucket seats at the helm make way to the panoramic walkthrough windshield. Bow and transom landings offer access to the water for swimming and diving.
