The boat of your dreams...
The 22 Sisu is legendary among Downeast hulls, in continuous production for more than thirty years. Sisu is a Finnish word that means stamina, fortitude, and “guts”. Originally drawn by Royal Lowell in the 1970s, her basic design is arguably the most seaworthy ever for a small powerboat. Modern composite materials plus a couple of design tweaks have made her even better - tweaks include recessed chines forward damp down spray and add dynamic lift to her round chines aft as she accelerates, as well as a performance change to outboard power.
Classic open-sided hardtop pilothouse offers shelter from sun and weather, with optional roll-down sides and mounting space for “rocket launcher” rod holders. The pilothouse covers helm and companion pedestal seats, which are mounted on storage boxes that double as aft-facing lower seats. The rest of the cockpit is very open, and can accommodate an optional full-transom fishbox with a cushioned seat on top, a couple of folding chairs, or an optional portable livewell. The cabin offers 6-foot-9-inch V-berths, with a portable toilet (plumbed for pump-out) and 5-feet-9-inches of headroom.
Performance is strong and efficient with an 115HP 4-stroke Mercury Command Thrust outboard, mounted on an PDR outboard extension bracket. This boat's outboard extension bracket option provides three advantages: 1. Improving handling by lengthening the effective waterline of the boat by about two feet; 2. Expanding the space in the aft of the boat with a the full transom (no cut-out); and 3. Reducing engine noise by positioning motor outside and away from full transom.
Dual axle Venture Trailer can be added to this package.
