The crossover hull style offers seating usually found in a deck boat, while the hull bottom with proud chines gives the boat the softer ride you expect from a deep-V bowrider. The HD 220 sliced through chop and wakes, and it remained firmly under control as it skittered over the bumps. The Forward Drive, with props turned forward, gave us a unique ride, softer than any inboard-powered boat. How? The angle of attack on the props is perfectly parallel to the direction of travel, and as the boat lifts from the water, that angle can be adjusted to stop the bow from punching into oncoming waves. And it turns like a mogul skier — smooth, fluid and always in control.
