How many times will feet step on your seats during the course of your boat ownership? Supreme might not be keeping count, but the builder is keeping it in mind. The upholstery aboard the S220 is Comfort Strong Marine Vinyl by Spradling. It is super-tough, sewn together with Gore Tenara thread by Gore-Tex—not what we find aboard most so-called value boats, but Supreme is out to redefine that term with its S220.

This 22-footer sports the new EZ-V hull design, seats 14, and carries up to 4,400 pounds of ballast in six locations evenly distributed around the boat. Yeah, big waves and monster wakes without lots of big, clumsy bow rise. Choose between the new stainless-steel Supreme Shine tower (SST) or the upgraded F-Series tower by Roswell with gelcoat color-matched tower shields. The standard PCM power delivers 409 foot-pounds of torque.

Knowing how elevated noise levels wear you down, cause everyone to yell, and plain sound like low quality, Supreme makes a science of quieting boats, as it does with the S220. The efficient, level-running hull design helps by requiring less rpm for any given task. It’s unibody construction dampens water noise and vibration. Even its wave- and wake-shaping technology has quiet built in—check the patented Silent Stinger wake-plate exhaust system.

The S220 sports lines and styling that look fresh but haven’t forsaken the form-following-function mantra that gives so many classic boats their good looks. This boat’s cockpit is deep, providing comfy seating backrests and a confident feel. Combined with a sheerline that descends aft from the bow, this makes for a boat that does a better job at keeping the water on the outside.

At the helm, the center-mounted Omni touchscreen controls wake- and wave-shaping functions, the standard Zero Off speed control, audio and more. This screen is daylight-viewable, features color iconography, and connects to phones via Bluetooth. Activate navigation lights, docking lights, the bilge and other critical  elements with switches.
