Product Overview

It’s true! Excellent performance can be achieved from an in-hull mounted transducer.

The M260 is designed with a 200kHz element, which provides performance resulting in higher-resolution without sacrificing sensitivity. Combined with a seven-element 50kHz array, this in-hull has excellent deep-water detection. Because the M260 has narrow beams at both frequencies, separation of individual targets and the ability to distinguish between fish and the bottom makes finding fish easy.

All-out fishfinding performance! Optimal fishfinder performance no longer requires drilling a hole in the hull! The M260 is able to transmit and receive through solid fiberglass, displaying sharp detailed images. Track the bottom at speeds exceeding 30 knots! Installation simply requires adhering the tank to the inside of the vessel, leaving a clean and smooth hull exterior.
