The Skeeter 22 ZX Bay T comes well outfitted, and ready for action.
Run a Skeeter ZX22 Bay T rigged with a Yamaha V-Max 225 HPDI outboard, and it’s time to hold on tight – this boat has a rocket-like hole-shot, which will snap your head back until the wind is rushing past at over 50-mph. And as you wave-hop through a chop, you’ll also notice that the Skeeter feels solid as a rock. The transom includes aluminum bracing encased in fiberglass and tied into the stringer system, the rest of the boat is all-composite, and all hardware is stainless-steel. Cleats, eyes, and other attachment points are backed and reinforced, and cores are lightweight, high-strength X-Cel.
All of the fishing features you expect are also present and accounted for: there are three vertical rodholders on each side of the console, dual rodboxes, fore and aft livewells, integrated coolers, and there’s even a self-coiling raw water washdown hose.
Custom Skeeter details include a switch plate at the dash, a chart stowage tube built into the console, an adjustable jack plate, and an anchor rack in the bowpeak locker. You have a low garage, and you want to keep the boat inside and under cover? Or, maybe there’s a low bridge you want to scoot under, to access that hotspot no one else can get to? Easy—just remove the quick-release windshield and the folding grab rail, to reduce clearance.
When I ran the ZX22 I thought the handling was down-right sporty, and you’ll have no problem weaving through tight cuts and creeks. They can be mighty shallow, too, because with the engine and jackplate trimmed up and on plane, we scooted across waters under a foot deep. Also make sure you take a look at this boat’s standard/options list, because Skeeter thoroughly outfits the ZX22. If you want to go fast, go shallow, and go through tough seas without getting pounded, check this one out.
