EdgeWater Power Boats says its new 262CC features an all-new deep-V hull design, comes with the company's most ergonomic deck design to date, and is built with EdgeWater's single-piece-infusion construction technology. With SPI, vinylester resin is vacuum-infused into the grid structures and hull laminate in one step. Resin molecules in the grid harden simultaneously, creating a one-piece bond.

The new 262CC’s bow wraparound seating unit integrates forward-facing ­backrests and lockable rod storage. The forward-entry console opens to reveal a well-appointed head compartment and storage. The newly designed leaning post can be configured many different ways for fishing or on-water entertaining, with a premium cooler, grill, sink, cutting board and storage.

EdgeWater wrapped the 262’s helm with its ClearView windshield, which eliminates the need for vision-impairing aluminum tubing. A starboard-side dive door is also standard, to help anglers boat and release fish as well as facilitate boarding with gear.

Designed to perform with twin outboards, the 262CC can be packaged with two Yamaha F200s or F250s.
