Sea Fox 266 Commander First Glance

A center console that's ready to fish and entertain

Like many fishing vessels today, Sea Fox's 266 Commander attracts the family boater as well as the serious angler. The double-wide lounger and storage box forward of the console offers comfortable seating and space for tackle and gear. Twin fish boxes with overboard discharge make smart use of the cockpit sole; at the transom, twin flip-down jump seats and a folding bench disappear when it's time to set lines.

The 266 Commander sports a newly designed 50-gallon livewell with a thick, acrylic double-latch lid and tension hinges. Standard gunwale rod holders and storage keep rods ready, and a built-in tackle center organizes the lures or rigs you’ll need. Options include a deluxe hardtop package, bow table, additional livewell and power‑assist steering.

Tested with twin Yamaha F150 outboards, the 266 topped out at 49.6 mph at 6,100 rpm, achieving 1.59 mpg. At cruise — 3,500 rpm — the boat ran 25.3 mph and offered 2.64 mpg, according to Sea Fox. (The company lists the max horsepower at 400. Fuel capacity is 143 gallons.)
