Kawasaki Ultra X


History is about to repeat itself, as Kawasaki’s new Jet Ski Ultra 260X reclaims the title as the most powerful production PWC sold in the U.S. Only two years after shattering records with the supercharged and intercooled Ultra 250X, Kawasaki engineers have raised the horsepower stakes even higher with the new Ultra 260X.

Glastron (Genmar) has been a household boating name for over 50 years. Through innovation and class leading designs they have managed to keep a foothold in this ultra competitive industry. A great example of this innovative thinking is the Glastron 269 Sport Crusier. It is twin cabin a layout with heaps of amenities. I recently had the opportunity to take a close look at this cabin cruiser.

The boat itself is really almost 27 feet long. However at 5,830 lbs before trailer it is still towable with a full size pickup. The cockpit of the boat is very well laid out. As you board through the transom you will see there is much room for enterntaining. With a sink and cooler outside plus a removable table. The "U" shaped seating offers seating for more than a few. The driver seat is wide and comfortable, offering good visibility over the whole boat.

Going down below you will find that for a boat its size there is a lot of room. The front V-berth area is well laid out. The optional flat screen TV was nice too. It offers a nicely packaged space for a microwave, sink, fridge and stove. The unique thing about this boat is the European design of the aft berth. It is open and spacious. The head has a shower and sink with a hot water system. A person of 6’ can move around nicely without getting too banged up.

For a boat this size if offers what much larger boats offer plus lots of room. Standard power for the basic package is a 5.0 GXI Volvo Penta. Suggested Retail price $57,021 which is on the lower price range for this size boat. Before buying another boat I strongly suggest giving this weekend getaway cruiser the once over. Has anyone else had the opportunity to check it out yet? Let me know what you think.

Watercraft riders seeking rock-steady stability, powerful acceleration and all-day comfort from a personal watercraft need look no further than the new Jet Ski Ultra 260LX. Sharing the same supercharged 1,498cc DOHC in-line, four-cylinder engine and deep V-hull found in Kawasaki’s Ultra 260X performance flagship, the 260LX adds first class paintwork and a luxury touring seat to the stellar performance of the 260X. The relationship between these two Jet Ski watercraft is analogous to the relationship between Kawasaki’s mighty Ninja ZX™-14 superbike and its supersport touring cousin, the Concours 14. The new Ultra 260LX features more performance than most pure-sport PWCs while offering long-distance comfort and utility like a Concours 14.
