EdgeWater Power Boats has introduced the EdgeWater 262CX Deep-V Crossover, displaying the boat at the 2017 Miami and New England boat shows.
With its deep-V hull, proprietary EdgeWater Single Piece Infusion construction, high-grade components, and twin Yamaha F200 four-stroke outboards, the 262CX is designed to combine offshore performance and safety with outstanding seating, storage and amenities. The new design was driven by customer feedback and improves on the EdgeWater 248CX model, the company says.
The boat’s all-new, double-wide helm provides sightlines through EdgeWater’s new ClearView Windshield. The dash, which features yacht styling, is big enough to accommodate a 16-inch Garmin screen. The helm seat is positioned with the driver’s ergonomics in mind, sheltered by the new integrated hardtop.
The starboard console holds a head compartment. Inside the port console is a storage compartment with many available options, including racks for wakeboards or dive tanks. Thanks to its standard dive door, the versatile 262CX acts as a platform for scuba diving, snorkeling, and other water sports.
This new model also features a redesigned bow seating area with plusher amenities, including a double-wide forward-facing lounge with built-in armrests. The forward storage boxes are insulated and have an efficient new design with a remote latch system.
In its cockpit, the 262CX showcases EdgeWater’s all-new, back-to-back Ultra Lounger, which incorporates an insulated fishbox and offers multiple seating positions. To starboard, the prep station also is a modern design with many different configurations: Standard items include an insulated cooler, cutting board, stainless steel sink and a pull out premium cooler; options include grill, refrigerator, and cabinet. Aft, there’s a full, transom-width fold-out seat, as well as a large transom baitwell.
