Saltwater Sportsman Magazine Boat Review:

A midsize center-console strong on performance and angling features

Boat companies take a calculated risk when they retire one of their best-selling models. When noticeable improvements are incorporated in the replacement, consumers quickly embrace it. Case in point, the Sea Fox 266 Commander, which supersedes a popular 25-foot center-console. In addition to an extra foot in length, this thoughtfully designed boat not only offers a wealth of angling features, but also many the entire family will appreciate

The 266 has composite-core deck and hull, both finished with Isothalic gelcoat and vinyl-ester skin coat for durability, and Sea Fox offers a lifetime warranty on the latter. Stainless-steel hardware and components are used throughout, including the rub rail, through-hulls and compression latches on the hatches. The two-tone marine-grade vinyl is heavy-duty and made in-house to ensure proper fit and finish.

Sporting an aggressive entry and 20-degree deadrise at the transom, this Sea Fox provides a soft ride. The stern bites and holds in tight turns for predictable handling. While the 266 Commander is rated for up to 400 horsepower, our test boat was rigged with a pair of Yamaha F150s, a power option that proved plenty capable. The hole shot was powerful, with the bow settling quickly, affording good visibility. We topped 50 mph with a normal load. At 4,000 rpm, we reached a pleasant cruising pace of 32.5 mph with a fuel burn of 13.5 gph. Even more impressive were the numbers with a single engine. After lifting one outboard totally out of the water, the boat eased on plane and ultimately produced a top speed of 32.3 mph at 5,000 rpm. That’s reassuring if you ever drop an engine 30 miles offshore and need to get back in. Other power options include a single 300 or 350 hp outboard, or twin 200s.

The 266 comfortably accommodates a large crew or family. Forward console seating pairs with bow lounging, with optional folding backrests for those beach or sunset cruises. And there’s no shortage of seating in the rear where a folding transom bench complements twin jump seats in each corner. Several hull color choices, plus accent stripes, can be ordered to add a custom look.

And this center-console comes ready to fish. Rod holders are everywhere: Four vertical ones are located aft over the splashwell, there are eight flush-mounted on the gunwales, and horizontal racks accommodate more rods underneath. Two spacious overboard-draining fish boxes in the cockpit deck are augmented by another huge one in the bow. The bow also includes companion lockers, plus a molded compartment to hold the requisite ­5-gallon bucket. A large tackle center on the starboard console houses numerous tackle trays and stores leader spools and bigger items, like downrigger balls or weights. There’s a choice of a 48- or 72- quart removable cooler, depending the leaning post option, and a 55-gallon livewell in the transom. Raw- and freshwater washdowns, coaming pads, plus a rack in the head door for a measuring stick round out the long list of features.

Our test boat came with the optional leaning post with flip-back bolster seats, cushioned footrests and an extra pair of rod holders. It was also equipped with the Ultima hardtop, which incorporates recessed LED spreader lights, a seven-rod rocket launcher, molded ­electronics box, Kicker stereo system and Climate Cool system with twin misters. Other notable add-ons include a console coffin box, three-bank ­battery charger, windlass and a couple of ­leaning-post configurations, including a second livewell. Tilt ­hydraulic steering and trim tabs are standard, with power-assist steering and an LED indicator for the tabs available as upgrades.

The two-tone console adds a stylish look for the Command Link digital gauges compass. A spacious dash easily accommodates large electronic displays. A console door to port steps down into the head compartment, which is roomy for a boat this size. Twin port lights provide ambient light in the space, which allows access to the helm rigging. A portable head is standard, but an electric one with a holding tank is an option.

The 266 Commander r­epresents substantial improvements over Sea Fox’s discontinued 25-footer. For anglers looking for value in a capable sport-fishing package, this latest model deserves special consideration.


Florida Sportsman Magazine Boat Review:

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.     See the source image

V6 3.3L F200

Digital: 200 hp
Yamaha’s legendary V6 3.3-liter F200 four stroke is a solid performer on heavier boats using 200 hp. When it first hit the water, it brought radically improved low-end and midrange torque, acceleration and top-end speed to the boating world. Its engineering was so revolutionary that it garnered not only a BoatingWeek Innovation Award, but also an Editor’s Choice Award from MotorBoating Magazine.

PROVEN PERFORMANCE

Yamaha’s V6 3.3-liter F200 features Variable Camshaft Timing, which increases combustion efficiency and boosts torque up to 16 percent in the 2000-3500 RPM range. This improves time-to-plane and acceleration on heavier boats.

16 Percent Gain in Torque


The ECM (Engine Control Module) varies camshaft timing based on engine RPMs maximizing intake and exhaust efficiency. This optimizes combustion, increases volumetric efficiency and delivers a full 16 percent gain in torque in the 2000-3500 RPM range, where you really need it.

Powerful Hole Shot


An Electronically Controlled Single Throttle Valve precisely controls the airflow through the surge tanks into the long tube intake tracks. The air silencer box reduces intake air noise for whisper quiet operation while the surge tank reduces air turbulence for smoother operation. The long tube intake tracks are tuned to increase airflow, which boosts low end and mid-range torque and performance resulting in a more powerful hole shot and increased acceleration.

Better, More Efficient Combustion


With Precision Multi-Point Fuel Injection, six individual fuel injectors are located just above the intake valves to deliver the precise amount of fuel for each individual cylinder. The placement of the fuel injectors just above the intake valves enhances fuel atomization resulting in better and more efficient combustion, enhanced engine performance and improved fuel efficiency.

Volumetric Efficiency


Large Diameter Intake and Exhaust Valves are engineered to deliver the air and fuel more directly into the combustion chamber. This design allows additional space for the intake and exhaust valves to have an increased diameter, which greatly increases volumetric efficiency. The intake valves also have larger valve lift for increased top-end performance.

Light, Compact Design


Another Yamaha first, In-Bank Exhaust System reversed the conventional four stroke configuration, allowing space for the exhaust to exit between the V-block downward for a lighter, more compact design. This design also allows the air flow volume to boost the torque in the low and midrange operation, increasing performance.

Smart Design


Inside Track Fuel Injection positions individual fuel injectors on the inward side of each intake track, saving space and keeping electrical wiring away from the cowling latches.

Reliability & Durability

Exhaust Pressure Reduction


This system reduces exhaust pressures while cooling the hub on the propeller. This process increases horsepower output while simultaneously increasing propeller durability. Another innovative performance and reliability feature from Yamaha.

Convenience & Control

Long-Term Durability

A Single-Belt Drive System uses fewer moving parts and is simple in design for long-term durability. The automatic belt tensioners keep the proper belt tension, avoiding adjustments for added convenience.

Better Charging

The High-Output Alternator produces 18 amps at 600 RPMs and 38 amps at 1000 RPMs, to help keep batteries charged while trolling, and an amazing 45 amps from 2500 RPMs up to W.O.T, for powering an array of marine electronics.

Precision Trolling

With Variable Trolling RPM, simply press a button on the Command Link® gauges to adjust the engine’s trolling speed from 600 – 1000 RPMs, in 50-RPM increments. This helps provide precise and consistent trolling speeds in a wide array of conditions.

V6 3.3L 200 hp

The 3.3-liter V6 F200 is a proven performer. Its 3.3-liter displacement continues to best many competitors. Combine that with Variable Camshaft Timing, and you’ll find 16 percent more torque in the 2,000 – 3,500 RPM range, for faster time-to-plane and acceleration.
