Sometimes, commercial strategies lead boat manufacturers to launch affordable models rather than more expensive yet more-balanced ones. This is the case of the Wellcraft 222 we tested in Le Lavandou. As demanded by the local dealer, the test model was powered by a Mercury 150hp outboard, maybe too weak to deliver all the qualities of the muscly American fisherman. It was a shame because this boat has many strengths and just 100 hp more could be enough to give fishing enthusiasts great emotions.

Design is concrete, not austere but with few frills; however, finishes and visual impact show great quality. Passengers can benefit from convenient padding as well as a convertible forward section, perfect to enjoy a sea trip with family or friends.

Characterized by essential lines, the pilot station is well protected and fully equipped. While sailing, all controls are at the pilot’s reach and all data can be easily monitored from the many displays available. Particularly attractive is the electric switch panel on the top of the console.

At sea, despite the above-mentioned low power that inevitably dampened acceleration during our test, the Wellcraft 222 is able to transmit the same sensations than a bigger and more stable boat. 6.70 meters long, she guarantees safe fast maneuvers even on steep malicious waves.
