    Captain's Report

    Triton 260 LTS Pro running shot
    At 25’5” (7.75 m) LOA, the Triton 260 LTS Pro is big enough to handle coastal ocean waters and large lakes.

    Overview

    The 260 LTS Pro is Triton’s flagship bay boat and she’s designed to set the bar for the class. Her bottom has a broad flare at the bow to knock down spray and to provide a wide forward casting deck. The pad at the transom helps improve holeshot and enhance mid-range and top speed. She comes standard with a 4” (10.16 cm) hydraulic jackplate.She has a large fishing area in the bow and plenty of space to pass by the console to the stern when fighting a fish. There are rod holders placed seemingly everywhere, plus racks under the gunwales and lockers in the bow. In the stern, the 260 LTS Pro has a 60-gallon (227 L) livewell, plus a 25-gallon (94.6 L) baitwell. Insulated bow lockers (64 gallon and 92-gallon / 242.3 L and 348.3 L) fitted with drains can be used as fishboxes or for dry storage. Two Yeti coolers keep drinks chilled.Because Triton is an independent builder, the manufacturer can offer 2- or 4-stroke outboards from Mercury, Evinrude, Yamaha or Suzuki, ranging from 250 to 350 horsepower. The 260 LTS Pro comes standard with electric trim tabs with a position indicator and a stainless-steel propeller that Triton tunes to the boat.

    Main Features

    Performance Heritage.

    Triton president Earl Bentz is a former world champion powerboat racer in the Formula 1 class.

    Equipped to Fish.

    The 260 LTS Pro’s transom livewell and baitwell each have an LED light and 1100-gph aeration and recirculation pumps. There are five stainless steel rod holders on each side of the console, plus five more in the back of the leaning post and two in the aft deck corners. That’s a total of 19 rod holders, plus racks under the gunwales. Triton’s fiberglass swim platform with storage for the 3 step stainless steel folding boarding ladder is mounted on the stern for quick and easy deployment.

    No Wood.

    Triton laminates the 260 LTS Pro with hand-laid fiberglass and AME 1000 resin. The transom is cored with Tri-Core polyurethane core that is used in aircraft construction and the transom spans the full width of the stern of the boat to better support the motor.

    Unibody Construction.

    The boat is built from three pieces, the hull bottom, a single-piece stringer grid and the deck. The Zero-Flex Stringer System has two longitudinal braces running from bow to stern and seven cross members to provide strength and prevent twisting when the boat is running in rough water. The hull, stringer grid and deck are bonded together with fiberglass and flotation foam is injected into the stringers, hull rails and compartments in the hull and deck. To support the seats, cleats, rails, rod holders and available tops, Triton glasses in aluminum backing plates in appropriate areas.

    Features Inspection

    The Bow.

    The bow casting area is a step up from the cockpit and it takes advantage of the 260 LTS Pro’s 8’6” (2.59 m) beam. There are locking rod storage compartments outboard beneath the sole while in the center are two insulated boxes with drains and macerator pumps that provide a total capacity of 156 gallons (591 L). Most anglers will probably use one to hold fish and the other to store gear. An anchor locker in the bow has space for ground tackle. For convenience, there is an engine trim button at the bow.

    Steps on each side of the cockpit make it easy to get up to the 260 LTS Pro’s large casting deck in the bow.

    The center lockers in the foredeck are insulated and equipped with drains so they can serve as fishboxes.

    The Cockpit.

    Steps on each side of the casting deck lead down into the cockpit. Beneath one of the steps is a raw water washdown. There’s a Yeti 65-quart (61.5 L) cooler secured in place on the front side of the helm console. Just ahead in the sole is a locker big enough for a bucket or a bait net. Racks in both gunwales use bungee cords to hold fishing rods in place.

    Triton 260 LTS Pro inspection panels
    Throughout the 260 LTS Pro there are inspection panels so that owners can better maintain their boat.

    The Helm.

    The 260 LTS Pro’s console is wide enough to protect two adults traveling side-by-side from oncoming wind and spray. The Plexiglas windscreen comes standard and buyers can opt for a T-top or fiberglass hardtop. On the port side of the dash, the tilt helm features an Edson stainless steering wheel with a power knob. The vertical panel ahead of the wheel has space for optional electronics and the boat comes with full-instrumentation, a Voyager compass, a JBL stereo with Bluetooth and an MP3 port, and a 12-volt accessory plug. The leaning post has a removable backrest and side-by-side seats with folding bolster cushions. In the leaning post base, the second 65-quart (61.5 L) Yeti cooler is mounted on a slide that makes it easy to pull out from beneath the cushion.

    Observations

    The 260 LTS Pro is indeed a well-equipped boat with a performance heritage. Her pad bottom and broad flared bow provide a mix of performance and dry ride that should draw praise from inshore river and lake anglers. With a draft of only 12” (.33 m), she can get into the shallows.The large casting deck should be a hit, as should the rod storage and big lockers/fishboxes beneath one’s feet. Rod holders on each side of the console and in the back of the leaning post provide plenty of spots for gear when underway. The helm console and two-person leaning post look comfortable and well thought-out and we like that both of the Yeti coolers are secure in place.The standard-equipment list includes most of the gear anglers are looking for and the financial incentives, choice of outboard motors and a long list of available options will allow buyers to keep the Triton 260 LTS Pro as a basic bay boat or deck it out for serious fishing.
