Sea Ray 220 Sundeck Captain's Report
A Winning Combination
Tested by Capt. Dan Maxwell
Sea Ray’s new 220 Sundeck was designed to capture the fast growing deckboat audience by combining an open layout with a sportboat hull. With the impressive power package and a lengthy features list this boat has something to say, and the test result are impressive in their own right. This 220 is bound to be a winning combination for Sea Ray.
The 220 Sundeck handles just like a sportboat should, very responsive and easy too maneuver in tight situations. She was quick to take off, and planed out nicely. Her top speed was 51.9 miles per hour and she has a comfortable cruising speed of 24 miles per hour. The boat leaned over effortlessly in tight turns and maintained her deckboat integrity in rough water.
The Helm Station
The 220 Sundeck has a very nicely designed helm station, which includes an instrument package with a speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, trim tabs, and a water temperature gauge. The stainless steel tilt steering wheel makes access to the helm seat a breeze. That’s where you’ll find a shift and throttle lever with a built in out-drive trim button and ignition circuit switches. All of this adds to the comfort level of the driver. The visibility is 360 degrees from the helm seat, which is a big plus when it comes to combining pleasure with safety.
