Pursuit’s new DC 266 replaces the DC 265 as the fifth model in the company’s dual-console lineup, which stretches from a 235 to a 365.

This family-friendly fishing boat features a fiberglass hardtop, tempered-glass windshield and vacuum-infused fiberglass frame. The open bow offers full wraparound seating and a stowable sun pad. A head and sink below the port console and a freshwater washdown in the cockpit provide easy cleanup after a saltwater swim, as well as changing space.

Fishing features include vertical and horizontal rod storage, a 20-gallon recirculating insulated livewell, a 31-gallon insulated transom fish box, a tackle drawer and storage under the companion seat, and aluminum reinforcement plates and wiring for downrigger installation.

At the helm, optional factory ­electronics feature a Garmin VHF and 12-inch multifunction display, and a JL Audio entertainment system.

The 266 carries 139 gallons of fuel, and in factory testing (with twin Yamaha 200s), the boat reached 51.3 mph, turning 5,975 rpm and achieving 1.27 mpg.
