Boat Review: Century 2202 Bay Boat

The 2202 is built to handle rugged conditions


The 2202 Bay Boat from Century features a vee-hull with lifting strakes and a 102″ beam for stability to handle rugged conditions. The 2202 features a 30-square-foot forward casting deck with anchor locker and insulated 125-gallon storage compartment that drains overboard and can double as a fishbox. Ample cockpit freeboard allows for large port and starboard rod lockers. The console has a tall, removable windshield with fold-down handrail, stainless steering wheel, console rod holders and storage locker. The 2202 has a full complement of gauges, lighted rocker switches, cockpit lighting, flush-mount deck hardware and nav lights. The aft deck offers 21 square feet of wide-open fishing space. The engine is set on a jackplate, so there is no engine well to cramp the deck. Under the deck is a 40-gallon aerated, recirculating live well and a 35-gallon live well. The 800-gph bait-well pump with high-speed pick-up can handle plenty of bait. The battery/oil-tank compartment has a molded-fiberglass tray to catch spills and allows room to spare for storage.
