Hurricane carries that 9-foot beam nearly all the way forward, giving the 2690 a spacious foredeck that enables boarding from either port or starboard. A central locker houses both the anchor and a flip-out boarding ladder. The cockpit behind also takes full advantage of that beam. There’s room for adults, whether seated on the facing benches or kicked back in reclining mode. Step through the open windshield, and the main cockpit features dual helm chairs (each with a flip-up bolster), starboard entertainment center with optional electric grill and refrigerator, and an L-shaped bench with central walk-through to the swim platform. An optional, fold-out jump seat can be added to the starboard coaming should you need to fit in just one more passenger. Below the floor, a fiberglass stringer grid provides the necessary rigidity, while also forming a clean, gelcoated liner for the below-seat storage compartments. That combination stringer/liner also makes possible an enormous in-floor ski locker, accessible by two separate hatches, as well as an oversize, low-maintenance head compartment with wood cabinet, solid surface countertop and stainless-steel sink.
