So I just bought this 2005 262 Captiva BR and am finding it interesting that it seems to be fairly rare. It's a beautiful boat with a lot of room, nice features, and great lines, so it seems odd to me that there don't seem to be many of them around on this forum or in general.
Many of the vendors like carpeting, SeaDeck, upholstery etc. have templets and such for most other models, but not for the 262. Why is that?
There are a couple things I can think of that prospective buyers may dislike, like the pass through between the helm area and the bow is very narrow. So narrow in fact that you wouldn't need to many extra pounds to make it very challenging to move back and forth through the walkway. The other thought I have is that maybe it just fell in that price and size hole that made it less popular. Maybe it is larger and more expensive than most people wanted when looking for an open bow style family boat, and maybe the price point put it too close to many cruisers for the folks looking to spend that much money.
I'm interested in your thoughts and opinions.
