ASHLAND CITY, TENN. — Caymas Boats, the bold new brand headed by marine industry legend Earl Bentz, is making waves among bluewater anglers with the recent introduction of its 26HB. This awesome new “crossover” center console combines premium tournament fishing features with family-style creature comforts and a velvet-smooth ride.
The new Caymas 26 HB spans 25 feet 7 inches at the centerline with a 9 foot beam for unparalleled performance, stability and interior room. It has a fuel capacity of 90 gallons, rates for outboards up to 400 horsepower, and is available with your choice of Mercury, Suzuki or Yamaha power. It’s hand-built by skilled Tennessee craftsmen with over 1,000 combined years of boatbuilding expertise.
Hardcore anglers accustomed to taking a pounding in ordinary saltwater boats are expressing amazement at the incredibly soft, dry ride of the new 26HB. Its secret: the patented Caymas Stepped Vee Ventilated Tunnel Hull (SVVT). Created by master marine designer Michael Peters, this innovative hull delivers a cloudlike ride in rough water, making it the perfect choice for offshore family outings. The radical hull design dramatically reduces water drag, resulting in faster acceleration, blistering top-end speed, enhanced handling and improved fuel economy.
Most “hybrid” or “crossover” bluewater boats either (a) leave out key features that serious anglers require (such as livewells and baitwells), (b) lack sufficient interior room and comfortable seating for multiple passengers, or (c) deliver a ride that ranges from annoyingly bumpy to downright bone-jarring. But the Caymas 26HB is the perfect combination of pro-level fishability, distinctive contemporary styling and family-focused comfort. Anglers will appreciate the 26 HB’s huge nonskid casting deck, massive built-in storage compartments for tackle and gear, multiple aerated livewells and baitwell, backlit console display, 100% hand laid composite construction and full menu of standard fishing features. Family and friends who hop aboard for a day of fun will love the 26 HB’s Comfort Cushioned seating at bow and stern, the extra elbow room afforded by the boat’s extremely wide beam, the combination of high freeboard and deep gunnels for added safety and security, the rockin’ bluetooth stereo system, the butter-soft ride, and – when Nature calls – the handy Porta-Potti conveniently built into the console!
Based in a state-of-the-art 15-acre manufacturing campus in Ashland City, Tennessee, Caymas Boats began shipping the 26 HB to authorized dealers in June, and the boat is already garnering rave revues among serious bluewater fisherman. Caymas founder and CEO Earl Bentz has been a driving force in the marine industry since the 1970s. A former world champion boat racer, Bentz founded and grew the Stratos, Javelin and Triton fiberglass fishing boat brands to leadership positions with combined sales of over 200,000 boats. The new Caymas brand epitomizes Bentz’s lifelong passion for boating, fishing and the Great Outdoors. The skill and dedication of the loyal Caymas work force assures owners a superior quality product with extraordinary fit and finish and a lifetime limited hull warranty.
