263 EX ranked the best deckboat by Boating Magazine (4/3/2006)


Excerpts about the 263 EX from Boating Magazine's 2006 Buyer's Guide:


"This boat came with the biggest engine of our test group, 375hp compared to 320hp, and had significantly higher speeds. Like the others, this one had no problem hopping onto plane with little bowrise -- an old deckboat problem builders have finally solved."


"Through-hull fittings are all stainless steel. We like the gray glare-preventing dash panel. Pull-up cleats are the beefiest of the group. Best cockpit scuppers of the fleet -- they're recessed and work."


"Gotta love the Monterey's sweet price of $54,874. Not much more than the Hurricane but you get a bigger, beefier boat."


"What sets it apart? Well, deckboats of this size are best paired with a 375hp package, and its price for the 375 is less than most competitors charge for a 320. So Monterey is the lion of the party."
