The Jupiter 26 Forward Seating is an ideal first boat for the offshore fisherman ready to own his own vessel.
This well-built center console was specifically designed by Jupiter Marine to be an affordable, introductory-level model that is easily trailerable. But besides being light on your wallet and being small enough to transport easily, it’s also a heck of a boat. Saltwater Sportsman described the Jupiter 26 FS as having a clean, well-executed layout, a gentle ride, and the “fine fit and finish for which Jupiter has become known.” (http://www.saltwatersportsman.com/boats/boat-reviews/jupiter-26-fs)
The 26 FS comes with two power options: a single Yamaha F350 or twin Yamaha F150 engines. Either option provides plenty of power as well as fuel economy. And the hull is designed to provide a dry, smooth ride.
Jupiter has a reputation for building some of the best fishing boats on the market, and the 26 FS is no exception. The bait prep center features a 45-gallon standup livewell. There’s plenty of tackle storage, complete with storage drawers, tackle sorters and lure tubes. The Jupiter 26 FS comes with gorgeous stainless steel rod holders, and it features 2 fishboxes, each 104 gallons, with macerator drains.
The wide side decks of the 26 FS allow for easy passage past the center console, improving fishability. And a pair of comfortable V seats in the bow sit above plenty of dry storage.
Saltwater Sportsman recommends boaters do a sea trial with the 26 FS, saying anyone who does will “know why a Jupiter boat is such a popular option for the fisherman who likes his family to be comfortable.”
