Some news is just too big to keep quiet. For example, when a deck boat manufacturer decides to create an extra-wide masterpiece like nothing our industry has ever seen before. Despite their best effort to keep this information in-house, the good news spread quickly and soon I found myself standing in the Hurricane plant in Elkhart, Ind., admiring for myself the first-ever production model being constructed.

Because of its size—26 feet, 4 inches long with a 9-foot wide beam—the Hurricane 2690 is yacht-certified, which puts this unique boat in a class by itself. I had to patiently wait for my chance to get this new model on the water to test it out, but I can assure you it was worth waiting for.
