New boats: Limestone unveils L-290DC day boat

Limestone L 290DC

Sept 28, 2021

From a design perspective, we wanted to build upon what world-renown designer Mark Ellis began 35 years ago,” comments Limestone Boat Company CEO Scott Hanson. “We consulted with Mark, and then set a course to bring an all-new design to a model worthy of the Limestone name, and I could not be prouder of our engineering and design team for their accomplishments.”

The L-290DC has a length of 29’ 3” and a beam of 11’ 10.8”. Base power is twin 250 HP engines, with Max HP being twin 300’s. The model has a powder coated fiberglass hardtop frame with dual opening vents, recessed speakers, LED spreader lights and courtesy lights; a fiberglass windshield frame with tempered glass; a wet bar with Corian countertop, sink and removable 65-qt cooler; a spacious head with quarter berth; and luxurious upholstery throughout with flexible seating options to maximize sociability, use of space and comfort.

“We felt it was important for the integration of a spacious head area for our multi-generational customers not only for convenience on the water but also to help them extend their time out on the water, so we engineered that space to also have a counter and sink, storage, quarter berth, LED courtesy lighting, opening privacy skylight and an electric head with inline macerator and deck pump out,” said Hanson. “There’s also a 30 gallon freshwater tank.”

“From a sociability standpoint, we designed the model to have numerous comfortable areas around the deck,” added Hanson. “You can relax or entertain in the bow area with our convertible lounge and table, enjoy a snack or meal at the portside L-shaped lounge seating area complete with storage underneath, or take in the view from one or both of the dual fold-down transom bench seats. There’s also a double wide helm seat with independent flip-up bolsters, flip down arm rests, cup holders and footrest for the captain and first mate; child or grandchild.”

Other notable standard features onboard include a portside dive door with removable telescoping ladder; integrated swim platform with telescoping ladder; anchor locker with stem mounted anchor windlass with remote helm switch; 12V and USB outlets; power assist steering; mahogany steering wheel; starboard windshield wiper with fresh water reservoir; cockpit coaming bolsters; raw water washdown and a freshwater shower; two large fish boxes totaling a combined 74 gallons; and stereo with Bluetooth and speakers to name a few.

Notable options on the L-290DC include air conditioning at the helm and in the head area; hot water heater, underwater lights, ski pylon; removable cockpit table with synthetic teak; summer kitchen with sink, refrigerator, and grill; stand-alone butane canister grill; SureShade system for aft/cockpit shading/protection; synthetic teak decking; and electronics.
