The Boat: 2004 Twenty-Two Foot Edgewater

Come fishing on a “2004” 22 foot Edgewater center console, powered by a Honda four stroke outboard motor. Edgewater boats are incredibly safe, dry, and stable. The Edgewater Hull has plenty of fishing space along with comfortable bench seating and a flat “non-skid” deck. The Honda 225 horsepower outboard is fast, unbelievably quiet, and has a clean smoke free exhaust that is friendly to anglers as well as the environment.

The combination of an Edgewater Hull, a Honda outboard motor, Furuno G.P.S., and all the requisite safety equipment make this vessel the perfect fishing machine!
