22' Sisu Hardtop

*pictures do not always reflect standard features 

     The 22 Sisu is legendary among Downeast hulls.  Sisu is a Finnish word that means stamina, fortitude, and “guts”. This little beauty is aptly named.  Originally drawn by Royal Lowell in the 1970s, her basic design is arguably the most seaworthy ever for a small powerboat.  Modern composite materials plus a couple of design tweaks have made her even better.  Recessed chines damp spray and add dynamic lift to her round chines as she accelerates, while an outboard bracket bolted to her transom frees up an outrageous amount of space in her cockpit.

     Choose a traditional framed “bassboat” windshield with Bimini top at the helm or an open-sided hardtop pilothouse. On deck, the only fixtures are helm and companion pedestal seats mounted on storage boxes that double as aft-facing lower seats.  The rest of the cockpit can accommodate a full-transom fishbox with a cushioned seat on top, a couple of folding chairs, or a portable livewell.  The open pilothouse offers shelter from sun and weather, with optional roll-down sides and mounting space for “rocket launcher” rod holders.  The cabin offers 6-foot-9-inch V-berths with a portable toilet (pumpout available) and 5-feet-9-inches of headroom.  Performance is strong with a 115-hp four-stroke outboard.  In continuous production for more than thirty years, the Sisu 22 is a classic overachiever.
