New Boat: EdgeWater 262 Center Console
By Tom Richardson on May 23, 2016
EdgeWater’s new 262 center console is designed to perform with twin Yamaha F200 or Yamaha F250 4-strokes, while an all-new, deep-vee hull design provides excellent performance, handling and ride.
The 262CC also 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 other innovations.
Combining the family-friendly comforts of a dual-console with the performance and fishability of a center console, the 262CC features wraparound bow seating with integrated, forward-facing backrests and lockable rod storage. The forward-entry console door affords access to a well-appointed head compartment with generous storage. The leaning post is available in many configurations.
Options include a premium cooler, grill, sink, storage and/or cutting board. A starboard-side dive door is standard for added convenience and accessibility.
Rigged with twin Yamaha F200’s, the 262 offers a cruise of 26.7 mph at 3500 rpm burning 10.9 gph (2.46 mpg). At 4000 rpm, speed is 32.2 mph with a fuel burn of 15.2 gph. Top end is 51.3 mph at 6100 rpm burning 39.9 gph.
