Maximized space and minimized maintenance combine with comfort and utility aboard this new deck boat.
Outboards are trendy, but Hurricane didn’t need an invite to the party. The brand’s been producing outboard-powered deck boats for years, taking full advantage of their low maintenance and resulting increase in cockpit space. Without an engine compartment, the SunDeck 2200 offers a gargantuan cockpit.
A portside chair complements the helm seating. Abaft, an L-shaped lounge with a walk-through spans much of the transom.
The 2200’s beam is carried well forward. Lines might look runabout sleek, but the bow cockpit offers nearly every inch of width as what’s found behind the windshield. Cushions lift out to reveal dual storage areas, the larger of which is ventilated to reduce moisture. Within the port console, a fully lined head compartment features a screened port for ventilation, along with a sink. An additional pressurized sink resides at the entertainment center behind the helm seat.
Power options extend to 250 hp, and from a variety of engine manufacturers. A 200 hp Yamaha pushed our 2200 test boat onto plane in 4.4 seconds, passed 30 mph in 7.8, and topped it out at 45.4 mph. Power-assisted steering provides effortless handling, giving the captain a welcome feeling of control.
