Brand New boat, not even on there web site yet. It looks like a nice step up from the 250FV. 69K msrp, is competitive as seems to be the norm with Rinkers' lately.

2007 Rinker 260 EC

Hopefully they will have an 8.1L engine option. Bigger and heavier than the 250FV, it might be slightly underpowered with a 350Mag.

That 69,000 canadian includes what equipment?

I find Rinkers much less of a value this year. I think that the other boat builders have got their game and Rinker is riding on past performance, price wise.

I can't elaborate on the available equipment. That is the only source currently available to me for that boat. I can e-mail them and ask ?

69K Canadian is roughly 58K US. Correct? Maybe I'm missing something, but that seems to be a good price, even without a trailer.

As a comparison, a 2007 FW 278 Vista is 85K msrp. Sea Ray 260 Dancer is $121K msrp. Yes it's not exactly apples to apples, because we don't know how each boat is equipped. Make sense?

If that price is Canadian I would be interested in looking at it.

It's got a little bit different lines than the other Rinkers. Almost like the difference between my 258 and the 268 that replaced it.

Or, as my kid likes to put it in his perspective,
$58,000 dollars is 232,000 gumballs

Looks kind like a Four Winns with a Sea Ray arch. That photo was taken at the Rinker plant.

69K for a new 26 foot express cruiser is NOT too much at all. Heck, seabuddy's next car thread will be asking for a fun to drive car under 70K. \:\)
