This is 22ft of cutting-edge sportsboat design
Starting at a hefty £44,950, you are immediately aware that this is a high-quality sportsboat, with an abundance of teak in the cockpit, a beautifully finished windscreen and a very cool helm.
The bowrider layout means you get to enjoy masses of versatile and safe deck space.
Above the neatly arranged engine compartment lies a central sunbed with a fold-over headrest.
To starboard an aft-facing seat conceals plenty of storage space beneath for fenders and warps, and there is a clear nod towards the watersports market with plenty of tower and wakeboarding options.
The boat came equipped with the beefy V8 and the 320hp it produced made this sportsboat a lot of fun to handle.
The ride was comfortable, delivering excellent grip and a 44-knot top speed.
