The SL 22 has been on the market for a few years now, but it’s just as capable as ever.

BMT standard packages starting from MRRP AUD $82,999 (model specific), ex factory*.

At 6.5m, the SL 22 is perfect for stalking big bays for snapper or spending long days out wide chasing tuna or marlin. Or perhaps a long haul to a distant reef floats your boat. Whatever your prey, this is your weapon.

Confident and surefooted, the SL 22 is easily towed behind a big family six and capable of handling itself in a fistfight with Mother Nature. Standard-fit trim tabs allow fingertip control of the boat’s dynamics, but it handles just fine without them.

Once again, the familiar yet efficient helm layout allows the skipper to concentrate on the game at hand. Comfortable helm seats with slides sit atop storage boxes with back-to-back seats, and thoughtful footrests are moulded into the cabin bulkheads. It’s simple, practical and spacious. Marine carpet is standard throughout the helm area and is optional for the well laid-out rear fishing cockpit.

Great with a single 150-200hp outboard, the new Volvo EFI 4.3Gi-200 gives the SL 22 quite an athletic attitude.

*MRRP. Manufacturers Recommended Retail Price. Includes GST, on water costs (pre-delivery charges), and an on-water hand over. Excludes safety equipment, registrations and freight. Advertised BMT price is for standard stern drive boat, motor and trailer packages.
