Designed to be a capable offshore fishing platform, this diesel twin-screw is great for a Bay Cruise or Instruction. Captain is a certified instructor by the Recreational Powerboating Association and U.S. Powerboating. Equipped with up-to-date chartplotter and radar.
The Luhrs 290 Open is a heavily built twin inboard express whose aggressive styling, spacious cockpit, and comfortable inte- rior made her a top seller during much of the 1990s. Built on a modified-V hull with cored hullsides and a flared bow, the wide 11'6" beam of the 290 creates one of the more expansive deck and cabin layouts available in a boat this size. A centerline helm provides excellent sightlines in all directions.
Below, the 290’s unique interior (with the head forward) sleeps four and includes facing salon settees with flip-up back- rests, and a compact galley with fridge.
My wife and I rented the Luhrs 290 so that we could have Barry instruct us on close quarter handling of a twin prop boat in preparation for a week long charter in the San Juan Islands. Everything went very smoothly from setting up the day via email, meeting at a convenient location in Alameda and getting excellent instruction and orientation on the operation of the boat. I would strongly endorse Barry as an excellent resource for someone trying to learn basic boating or improve their skills. Kent
