The performance of Airmar’s “1 kW 260 family” of transducers has made them legendary. The combination of power and sensitivity has made this the high performance transducer of choice for use with conventional fish finders. Operating at 50 kHz and 200 kHz, the narrow 6 deg beam at 200 kHz provides excellent target resolution and crisp images of fish holding tight to wrecks and reefs. The 50 kHz provides excellent deep water detection and the wide 19 deg beam provides broad coverage under the boat. The thru-hull B260 model is offered in bronze and also available in stainless steel (SS260) for installations on metal hulls. Installed with the included custom-fitting high performance fairing, the 260 can provide excellent performance at speeds up to 30 knots (34 mph).
