The new Palmer 260 Defiance has a 22-degree deadrise, defined running strakes and bow flare. Palmer Marine calls their innovative hull design "Stable-Trak," which is said to enhance the overall performance of the boat - specifically with quicker plane time, better turning performance at speed and greater stability.
As do all Palmer models, the 260 Defiance comes with a non-skid walk-around foredeck that allows access to the bow area of the boat.

The enclosed helm deck has a dinette lounge along the port side. The helm is forward on the starboard side, and directly aft of the helm is a countertop with a built-in sink. With large bins and under-seat storage, there is plenty of room for gear.
Rigged with either a single 300-hp outboard or twin 200-hp outboards, the Palmer 260 Defiance provides cover from the weather to extend the fishing season. Palmer Marine; Port Orchard, WA; (360) 674-7090; www.palmermarine.com
