Since this review, Glacier Bay boats have been folded under the parent World Cat umbrella, and going forward will be known as Glacier Bay Edition. Design, materials and construction will not change.
Glacier Bay has had excellent success with its Island Runner 2670 over the years. In fact, it's been the brand's most popular model. So when the builder decided to give the 2670 a makeover, we thought, uh oh. But while we have a "don't-fix-it-if-it-ain’t-broke" attitude, that doesn't sell boats. After testing the 2780, we think Glacier Bay managed to make its best-seller an even better boat.
