OTSEGO, Minn., -- Crestliner is proud to announce a pioneer in deep-v construction and a triumph in multi-species trophy fishing, the 2200 Intruder. A 22-foot long workhorse, the Intruder is ideal for large fish hunting with its open and roomy cockpit layout, 100-gallon livewell and versatile, functional build that will effortlessly meet the multiple fishing needs of hardcore anglers. From catfish to muskie, salmon and beyond, the Intruder is a powerful partner for any fishing pursuit.
After debuting the 2200 Intruder at Counce Marine's booth at the Mid-South Sports & Boat Show in Memphis, Tenn., on Feb. 14, the buzz among the catfish community went viral.
"The Intruder's design is a breakthrough for those avid anglers out there who know there's never a catch big enough," Crestliner President Cecil Cohn said. "The Intruder brings new possibilities to the surface by combining impressive capacity with the kind of dependable and bold performance expected from Crestliner. We couldn't be happier with this new hybrid because we haven't made just another boat; we've made a fishing powerhouse."
The reliable 2200 Intruder is the perfect balance of function and features. This 250-hp beast features a reverse chine for increased performance and stability. Built around our legendary all-welded aluminum hull and sitting on a 96-inch wide beam, this platform boasts a 64-inch long, 100-gallon stern livewell with dual pumps and enough space for the large haul.
"Strategy drove the Intruder's design," Crestliner Product Manager Christine Bush said. "We listened to the hardcore anglers and, as a result, we built a boat designed specifically for the trophy chase." For the most strategic anglers on the water, a low, crappie-style bow deck offers prime space to survey surroundings as well as an anchor locker for neat storage. The Intruder's refreshing redesign approach includes an all-new reinforced fiberglass console, copious storage, drink holders, Sea Star hydraulic steering and space for 10-inch electronics.
But just because the 2200 Intruder has all the utility features and robustness a Pro could ask for, don't let its broad shoulders mask the creature comforts that will make fishing an even bigger thrill. Its spacious, open cockpit boasts four standard Pro seats, and the captain has the benefit of a seat slider. Thoughtfully placed storage, like the portside rod storage with space for three, 9-foot rods, and roomy in-floor storage for the rest of your gear, makes the Intruder, and your time on the water, hassle-free so you can focus on what's really important: that next trophy catch.
