The classic walkaround design is made to fit a broad range of functionality. There are many unique advantages to this style boat, which hosts everything from family days on the lake to long fishing excursions. Sailfish’s 220 WAC model is no exception, and tells its own unique story of fun and adventure.
The 220 WAC was designed to be a clever hybrid. It is every bit a fishing vessel as it is a cabin boat cruiser, and excels in both categories. From the steering wheel forward, the 220 WAC is built like a traditional, V-berth cuddy cabin, where comfort is the priority. But from the helm backward, it built for action like the 220 Center Console in our 2022 lineup.
Sailfish’s deep, Variable Degree Stepped hull and center console helm are what make the 220 WAC a mean fishing machine. It has ample aft cockpit space and seating to accommodate sportive angling conditions. A port-side helm gives an ultra confident feel, and an open cockpit hosts several family members. When free drifting, the captain can spin ahead of the catch to support heavy action at the stern.
Like all Sailfish models, the 220’s hull has three, Variable-Degree Stepped running surfaces, enhancing smoothness and stability an all types of water conditions. Its cuddy cabin is the largest in its class, with more headroom and comfortable space than other boats in the 23-24 feet category. Combined with its optional hard top, the 220WAC provides ample protection from the elements for family members who need a little repose or some chill time out of the sun.
Adding to these comfort advantages are extra wide walkways a grab rails all around the bow. Family and friends have easy access to the bow, and all the vantage points around the boat.
The 220 WAC stakes its claim in the classic walkaround category with unique accommodations and versatility befitting any boater’s style. It is as fishable as any great center console, and as comfortable as any great cabin cruiser. Truly the best of both worlds for family and friends who are serious about fun on the water.
