This new center console beauty from NauticStar is exceptionally built.
Written by Gregg Mansfield.
Now under the ownership of Iconic Marine, a builder center consoles and high-performance boats, NauticStar Boats has launched the fishing-friendly 22 XS. The 22 XS (21’ 3” LOA, 8’ 6” beam) comes with 30-gallon fish boxes to port and starboard with recirculation pumps.
Additional fishing amenities include a rod management system, a cutting board and a 72-gallon Igloo cooler. The 22 XS has a wide console giving buyers the ability to add a Simrad 7” or 9” screen or dual Simrad 9” screens.
The boat comes standard with a leaning post that has flip-up bolsters and buyers can add a canvas or fiberglass hardtop to protect the console. NauticStar includes U-shape seating in the bow and offers a bow table and cushion upgrade.
“The 22 XS is built for every fishing season,” NauticStar said. “With factory-installed Yamaha Outboard engines paired with our advanced hull design, the 22 XS delivers on the NAUTICSTAR standard for a powerful but smooth and dry ride constructed to last”.
The 22 XS features a sharp V-hull and air-assist chine, which NauticStar says delivers a high, dry ride and smooth handling. With a 8’6” beam and the boat weighing 3,900 pounds, it can be towed by a small SUV or truck. NauticStar offers the 22 XS with a single outboard from either Yamaha or Mercury Marine up to 250 horsepower.
