Airmar M-260 In-Hull Transducer


The performance of Airmar’s “1 kW, 260 family” of transducers is legendary. The combination of power and sensitivity has made this the high-performing transducer of choice with conventional fishfinders. Operating at 50 and 200 kHz, the narrow, 6° beam at 200 kHz provides excellent target resolution and crisp images of fish holding tight to wrecks and reefs. The 50 kHz is excellent at deep-water detection, and its wide 19° beam yields broad coverage under the boat. The transducer is installed in the included tank which is cut to the boat’s deadrise angle and affixed inside the hull. When the transducer is placed inside the tank, it is properly oriented for optimal performance. The M260 is a popular choice for customers not wanting to drill a hole in their hull and for trailered or multi-hulled boats.
