Yep, that's a 150-horsepower 4-stroke Yamaha on the back of a 22-foot bay boat.

Note the angled transom; see how it sweeps aft toward the waterline. There is effectively more wetted surface area and flotation to help get on plane with the big 4-stroke.

Here she goes. In a choppy bay, we topped off at 58 mph, but this boat will easily top 60.
Our test model had a tendency to porpoise, with that extra weight on the transom. Note that we had less than a quarter tank of fuel, and no trolling motor batteries, ice or gear in the bow. The weight of real-time rigging would likely make for a level, smooth ride.

Also, the boat is said to perform well with an F150--which weighs in at 130 pounds less than the big 250.

LCD multi-mode gauges, showing tach and fuel burn.

Handy jack plate switch.

At 8 feet, 6 inches, this is a wide fishing platform, with ample walking space between the console and gunnels.

Say goodbye to those old low-profile, hull-mounted nav lights. New Coast Guard regs require the lights to be placed higher for visibility. Socket for 360 white light is visible behind the windshield.

Pop-up cleats are standard equipment on good bay boats.

Leaning post with a comfortable backrest.

Secure handrail keeps passengers in the boat at 60 mph. In-console tackle boxes ensure your tackle comes with you, too.

Gasketed, sandwiched, gelcoated hatch lid covers a cavernous forward storage area.

Anchor locker.

Hideaway horizontal storage for rods.

Full-size console and windshield--another comfort touch on this speed-demon. Also plenty of space for a chartplotter and other electronics.

Our test model had the integrated leaning post with tackle boxes and storage trays; a welded aluminum leaning post with cooler storage underneath is also available.

Yes, those boxes are lockable.

25-gallon standard aft livewell on the 2200 and 2200 XL. The Tournament Edition has two 40-gallon wells, plus a third 15-gallon well up front.
