Layout
 

The bow area of the 260CC is well organized with benches on both sides and a forward anchor locker. Storage under the seats can handle most of the gear you'll bring on board. Behind the seats are lockers for rods to keep them organized and out of sight. The forward 129-gallon capacity fish locker has a pump-out for easy cleaning, and gunwales around the 260 are wide and topped with aggressive grip surfaces, powder-coated rails, and pull-up cleats to keep the lines fair. In the front of the center console are signature Everglades's seats with room for two, complete with headrests and grab rails for safety. Other than behind the wheel, these are the prime seats on board. The aft cockpit is the prime casting space. Here you'll fine three-rod storage racks, and under the gunwales is a stainless steel toe-kick board to anchor your feet while fighting a big fish. Coaming pads are also standard on this model. In the floor is a 66-gallon fish box with pump-out. The aft bench is a real work of art. It deploys down easily, tips back up to add casting space, and when you need to check the batteries it flips-up from the bottom to reveal them neatly organized in a tray, and well out of the bilges. This is a very innovative and smart use of space. Another good use of space is the slide-out Igloo cooler drawer located in the port corner. On top of the stern wall is another station to prepare fish or more bait, and it has an overboard drain for easy clean up. Rounding out this cockpit is the lockable transom door, which is always useful, especially when hauling in a big catch.

 


Helm

The helm is truly designed for comfort, starting with the plush padded console seat. Our boat had the Honda engine digital gauges, which let you keep a close eye on the performance of the engine. A large space for flush mounted electronics is just behind the wheel, and the power-assisted hydraulic steering made handling smooth, even in the rough water. Inside the center console is the head compartment, which has a deep-V design and provides a generous amount of headroom. It's complete with a standard china toilet with macerator and holding tank, some storage for small items, and offers easy access to the connections for the electronics on the dash. The T-top gave us a welcome cover from the sun and it also added more rocket launcher rod holders. Furuno GPS and Radar.


Fishing Features

The leaning post workstation is very impressive and easy to work with. The boat has more signature Everglades seating, a fire extinguisher properly placed where the captain can get to it immediately, and the sides have Plano tackle boxes. The back of the leaning post is bait central. Knife and tool organizers are placed across the top, keeping tips and blades safely away. To the right is a small sink to rinse off and to the left a cutting board top to prepare the bait. In the center is the 55-gallon baitwell with clear top and magnetic catch to hold it open while dipping bait from the well. The well has rounded sides and blue lights to keep the bait calm and lively.
