We made a case that the original CSX model, the 220, might be the ultimate crossover boat (October 2007). The new 265 version takes the saltwater-ready attributes, never before found on an inboard water-sports boat, into the realm of even bigger water. The yawning 9.5-foot beam and the twin V-8 direct-drive engines (800 horsepower) add safety, space and power to what was already a one-of-a-kind boat. These are the first center consoles made for towed water sports. The 265 has a head with 6 feet of headroom, a double-wide helm station and options like a 20-inch TV/DVD player that flips down in the cockpit and hydraulic bow table. These features further separate the 265 in the latest crossover genre.
