Have to give Bill Judge credit.
I took delivery on a 265 this past week.
In my opinion, hard to find better price to value.

It is a solid floorl with a liner (cored with carbon core), no tank access panel. However I am sure Bill will put an access panel in if you want. Not sure why you would want one before a problem arises. It is just one more thing you would have to worry about keeping sealed.


Here is a shot of THT'er Longtrav's new 265 running this weekend on this aerial photography groups page..

In some of the CC models there appears to be a small cabin in the front. Is this an option and if so how does it affect the price? Also can the new Suzuki 350 be put on this model?

That is the difference in the 265cc and 27cc. The 265cc does not have a lockable storage/cabin area in the bow. The 265 is an open fishing boat that you can add forward seating to if you want. However, to me the lure of this boat is its simplicity and openness for fishing.

The new Suzuki 350 can be put on this model.

That seems like a good value. I am coming from a Parker 2500 se and wonder if the ride is comparable. Does anyone have a judge 265 or 27 in the mid Bay Area. Would love to check it out. I think I really want something with a 21 or 24 degree deadrise this time but would like to check the judge out.

The boat in the photos is owned by THT'er Longtrav. He fishes out of Chesapeake Beach.

With a 3:1 length to beam ratio and aggressive v in the front, we think the Judge does nicely through rougher waters. However if you are looking to run hard and launch a boat in and out of waves a deep v may suit your needs better. However it will come at a cost of power, economy, draft, and stability.

So on the 27 CC is that little front storage area big enough to grab a nap or get 2 people out of the rain?

I think it's plenty of room on the 27. I added forward seating on my 265 and we use it to nap on. I'm 6'1" and can get almost my whole torso under the front lip to get out of the sun. It works very well. I didn't plan it that way but just happened to work out. My wife loves it with all the cushions up there.

Plenty of options for them:
  • in console forward seat
  • leaning post live well
  • in floor
  • transom box

Your choice. It only takes $

I really love the lines of this boat. I understand they can plane as low as 13kts, and if they run flat like a Yellowfin does, you get a lot of boat in the water that can use the sharp entry to chug through chop, rather than running faster or bow high, which is when the banging starts.

Yes. I had this model before going to the 27' Chesapeake and there was room for 1 or 2 people to sleep up front or get out of the rain.

Yes, Thats my boat in the pics and can arrange for you to take a look. I had a boat with a 21/24 dead rise prior.
