260 Canyon Runner - What year did the hull design change?

Postby scubadude » Tue Apr 03, 2018 11:44 am

Looking for a used 260. Trying to figure out when the current hull mold was put into service.
Thought it was 1999 but seeing some 1998s that look like they are the newer design.
thx

I'm no historian on this boat but I have owned a 2004 260 Canyon Runner since 2012 so I know the boat very well. I believe GB made several changes over the 1998 to 2006 timeframe but I don't think they were anything major, mostly interior changes. It seems that I read several years back that in 2002 or 2003 they added the center line snub to reduce the hull slap and sneezing but again not sure - mine has it. Maybe there was another issue I just don't remember it. I know in about 2006 they went to the 2665 which from what I have seen only changed the interior features i.e. fishbox gas pistons moved forward, cooler under front seat, larger console especially for electronics, etc. Sad this company no longer around - I love the boat
