2010 EdgeWater 245CX
A crossover for everyone
By Mike Milne
Keeping everyone in the family happy is never easy. On the water, it’s next to impossible. That’s why cottage docks are often crowded with fleets of boats, each with a special function. The kids want to get big air on the wakeboard, parents want something safe and comfortable, everyone wants to go fishing. Nobody wants to clean up.
Welcome to the world of boating that spawned the EdgeWater 245CX Crossover. It’s an outboard-powered 24-footer with a water sports tower to get wakeboarders airborne, a 20-degree deadrise hull that provides comfort and performance, and plenty of fishing features. To top it off, the boat’s layout and décor combine sporty and classic elements.
Florida-based EdgeWater has built a strong reputation for quality construction and a 14-model lineup of mainly centre consoles from 14 to 38 feet. All are outboard-powered and most are aimed at the southern all-purpose boating and fishing market. Centre consoles have made slow and steady inroads into northern markets, but the CX has appeal that will let it reach into the offshore fishing, adventure and watersports markets.
