EdgeWater 220IS

A legendary brand that has helped boaters create lasting memories for years, EdgeWater puts customers first with a goal of building the strongest and most reliable boats on the water. Producing a limited number of uniquely handcrafted, semi-custom vessels each year at their 94,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility, the team at EdgeWater recently unveiled an exciting line of inshore models including four hybrids designed to cover both backwater and near-shore duties.

EdgeWater 220IS

Common to all EdgeWater boats, their latest inshore models are built with single piece infusion technology, where vinylester resin is vacuum infused into the grid structures and laminated in one step. By doing so, the resin in the grid cures at the same time as the resin in the laminate, making the entire hull bond as one while achieving the best strength-to-weight ratio possible.

While the building techniques are superior, standard amenities aren’t overlooked either. Two baitwells come standard, with massive storage compartments, locking rod storage and a host of additional features making the base package very attractive. You will notice that hatch lids feature sleek carbon fiber for a true custom feel. Impressive options include an upper helm station with electronics package, shallow water anchoring device, trim tabs, and trolling motor. With a limited lifetime hull warranty and the ability to serve as a serious crossover, what more could you ask for? EdgeWater Power Boats, 386.426.5457,
