Connor Industries has been making Stanley Boats for years. While the rugged aluminum Stanleys are popular, customer feedback initiated the creation of something with a bit more fit and finish. Hence: The Lighthouse.

The 264 SF has all the strong-featured Stanley DNA, just with a bit more class. From the glossy painted hull, to the semi-enclosed cockpit, to the small berth at the bow, this vessel feels luxurious.

Stanley Boats has a reputation for being tough and now the Lighthouse has to live up to that standard. With he SF’s thick aluminum hull, coupled with noise and vibration damping, I'd say they are hitting the bar.

Under the hardtop, behind the windshields with wipers, you’ll find four seats. Above the captain’s is a skylight and beside is a sliding window with screen. Within the seat bases are massive drawers if you don’t want to leave your stuff in the aft cockpit.

Speaking of, the aft cockpit has a ton of space for gear, or, you can flip down a bench seat that is tucked away under the livewell. That, and the neighbouring baitwell, will come in handy as the SF stands for Sport Fish. As such, there’s also a ton of rod storage along either side of the aft cockpit as well as rocket launchers at the back of the hard top.

The cuddy cabin at the bow is small and not really feasible for extended stays, but for a break from the sun or an overnight (or two) for the hard-core angler, it works just fine. This is also where you’ll find the pump out head compartment on the starboard side.

Our test boat, powered by twin Yamaha F200s ripped along at a top speed of 53 miles per hour and cruised equally comfortably in the 30s and 40s. With a fuel capacity of 150 gallons, you have more than enough range to use this either as an island commuter, a big water fishing boat or both!

Twin Yamaha F200s, each at 200-horsepower, 2.8 L, in-line, four-cylinder EFI DOHC with multi-point fuel injection
