Glastron GS 259 (2009-2010) Test Video

This on the water getaway is one of Glastron's twin cabin models with runabout performance and a family-friendly design. Glastron’s intent was to deliver a balance of more value, more comfort and more performance than expected. The builder takes advantage of every bit of space on the GS 259 and still delivers over 41 mph with a MerCruiser 5.0L engine. There is 72” of headroom below, which is remarkable for this size of boat. Below you have all the basic comforts you may want for a night on the hook with the family, especially if you get the air conditioning option with a generator.

Packed with Features

Here’s an express cruiser that looks all the world like it should be a bigger boat. It has a roomy and luxurious forward cabin and standup head.

Attractive Helm

The roomy helm has full black on white instrumentation and there also are controls for the standard forward spotlight mounted on the leading edge of the bow guardrail.

Cockpit Entertainment Center

Just aft is a small entertainment station with a sink, handhold, and room for a portable cooler.

V-Berth and Kitchen

The forward cabin has plenty of headroom, even for boaters a bit over six feet tall – no stooping needed. A large wide V-berth with a center insert makes for generous sleeping.

Roomy Head Compartment

The full, standup head can be configured with an optional marine toilet, but it comes with a freshwater sink and shower.

Stern Filler Cushions

A removable rear bench seat fills out the stern. Removing this seat provides more walkaround room when you need it fishing or wakeboarding.
