For the boater in search of a true multi-purpose offshore center console, the Sea Fox 266 delivers plenty of options. Many boating families divide their time between different activities to suit the needs of every family member and the 266 Commander stands up to this requirement nicely. For cruising and simply enjoying some fresh air and sunshine the forward seating arrangement welcomes a large group to lounge comfortably facing one another. More seating is available in the cockpit via fold down jump seating and a two place leaning post at the helm.

For the anglers in the family there’s a lot to like here. Nearly two dozen rod holders are scattered all around this boat from gunnels to overhead on the T-top, to the rocket launcher and across the transom. No shortage of spots to place a rod here. A 55-gallon live well is located above the deck across the transom and easy access to the transom fantail is made simple through a pass through both Port and Starboard. This is a nice touch for fighting a fish around the engines as well as making swim access simpler at the sand bar. You’ll find a large tackle center on the console which accommodates multiple tackle trays along with a drawer and open space for other miscellaneous items. Opposite this on the console is entry to the inside of the console which is large enough for a marine head and provides more storage as well as access to systems behind the helm.

The forward lounge seat hides a large half coffin style box which is roomy enough to store a host of gear including dive gear and tanks. Forward companion boxes and cockpit fish boxes round out storage solutions and a removable cooler which sits under the rocket launcher is available for food or drink storage as well.

Add to the practical features a stylishly designed nicely finished package and you have a well-rounded all-purpose family boat for the whole family to enjoy.
