CADILLAC, Mich. — The Four Winns SL222 is the inaugural recipient of Trailer Boats Magazine's highest honor, the Zenith Award. The boat was selected from among 30 Excellence in Design honorees that were revealed in January and will be profiled in the magazine's March issue.
The SL222’s out-of-the-box design — which Trailer Boats called “sophisticated yet edgy” — was responsible for the victory, according to Rick Fulmer, Four Winns vice president of sales and marketing.
“Our designers and engineers managed to craft a boat that appeals to a broad array of boaters by offering what no other boat can: smart style and peak performance,” Fulmer said in a press release.
The SL222 was among the magazine's January Excellence in Design honorees in the bowrider category. However, according to Trailer Boats, the SL222 isn't a typical bowrider.
“Although Four Winns bills it as a bowrider, this boat’s roomy, beam-forward design and broad bow swim platform help define the best attributes of a modern ‘deckabout.’”
Trailer Boats is published nine times per year in print and can be found online at TrailerBoats.com.
