Designed to perform with twin engines, the EdgeWater 262CC (26’5″ LOA, 9’3″ beam) is equipped with Yamaha F200 or F250 four-stroke outboard engines and runs to a top speed of 51 mph with the twin F250s. An all-new deep-V hull design gives the EdgeWater 262CC superior performance, handling, and ride. The new 262CC features EdgeWater’s most ergonomic and sophisticated deck design to date along with the builder’s advanced Single Piece Infusion hull construction.
The helm area and integrated hardtop with “Clear View” windshield are recent innovations. The 262CC’s aerodynamic design eliminates the use of vision-impairing aluminum tubing. The 262CC also incorporates some of the best design elements from EdgeWater’s high-tech 368CC. The result is a boat that combines all of the comforts of a dual console model with the performance and fishability of a center console.
The 262CC has luxurious wraparound bow seating with integrated, forward-facing backrests and lockable rod storage. The forward entry console opens to a spacious and well-appointed head compartment with generous storage space. The leaning post is a new, modern design available in many different configurations; options include a premium cooler, grill, sink, storage, and cutting board. A starboard-side dive door is standard for added convenience and accessibility.
