Cuddy King 260

The Seas Won’t Seem Nearly As Enormous.

You’ll capture the heart of the most cunning fish, and much more, with the Cuddy King’s unexpected amenities, the flawless ride, and more room to fish and relax — all skillfully netted together in signature Weldcraft style. With a steep bow entry, upswept bow, self-bailing aft deck, and true reverse chine on a wide 8’ bottom, the Cuddy King is all you’d hope for in a serious, ocean-going sportfisher. Superior function is enhanced through thoughtful form in 40” sides constructed of .160 gauge 5086 aluminum alloy for rock-solid strength and seaworthiness. The Cuddy King series is loaded with substantive features like a forward-leaning windshield, driver and passenger Mariner suspension seats, cabin sub-floor storage, and aft deck sub-floor insulated fish box with a macerator pump out. Countless galley and stand-up head configurations are available too. And even though it sports a full 8’ 6” beam, this ocean Cuddy is trailerable so it goes on land and water anywhere you ask it to.

Customize Your Cuddy’s Comfort.

Cabin amenities are critical characteristics of the Cuddy King. Your home on the water should be everything you’ve dreamed it could be… and it will be. We’ve allowed nearly every aspect to be built to your desires. Flexible seating, dinette, marine head, stove, heater, fridge… and the list of options goes on forever. You can depend on your dealer to help make sound recommendations.

Ready for the Long Range.

The 26’ Cuddy King features a 121-gallon standard, diurnal fuel capacity for multi-day adventures. Upgrade to 160-gallons and open even more ocean for exploring.
