The EdgeWater 262CX dual console is a perfect model for those who can’t decide between intercoastal cruising with the family and running offshore for a weekend of diving or fishing. Versatility is the major claim to fame for this EdgeWater model starting with its deep V offshore center console hull, all the way forward to its spacious bow seating. The 262CX comes standard with a windlass, ski tow pylon, and bow table that converts to a full lounge, which are typically offered as options in other competing models.

 

The 262CX is one of the most versatile and sought-after vessels in EdgeWater’s line up. Starting at the bow you'll find seating for the whole family. Walking aft between the large dual consoles you'll come to a 61 square foot cockpit with more than enough space for fishing. The built-in dive door makes both diving and boarding easy. The port console features spacious locking storage for fishing rods and tackle as well as racks for dive tanks. Moving to the starboard console under the helm you will a find a very spacious head compartment which features a marine vacu-flush head with plenty of head room. The port side seating folds down into a full lounge, neatly concealing an insulated fishbox and cooler compartment. Moving to the helm station, you will see space to accommodate a 16in GPS display as well as a VHF radio and stereo head unit.

In the underdeck you will find several huge storage compartments for various water toys and daily equipment. Behind the helm there is a freshwater sink and pullout cooler with a cushion as well as a flip down bench seat in the back of the cockpit, perfect for when the entire family is on board. EdgeWater built the 262CX with your comfort in mind, including 4 gunwale mounted rod holders that also double as drink holders.

 

The EdgeWater 262cx gets its grunt from Twin Yamaha 200HP, four stroke outboards for extended reliability and utmost performance under harsh conditions. Although she will accommodate twin 250s, Standard twin 200hp power will get this boat around 50mph!

EdgeWater Boats are built with cutting edge design, versatility and quality, also offering a lifetime hull warranty as well as a self-bailing design. Years of research by top engineers led to the development of an unsinkable boat that is unlike the rest, with safety and performance always at the forefront. The proprietary deep V hull along with the reverse chine hull design are sure to keep this boat stable and dry whether underway or at rest. Lastly, EdgeWater’s Single Piece infusion (SPI) closed mold construction process sports the use of more fiberglass and less resin, thus making EdgeWater boats not only stronger, but also lighter for better fuel economy and performance.
