Parker built his first boats in the late 1960s on the North Carolina coast. After more than 60 years, the company knows what it takes to design and build fishing boats that can handle large waters and anything Mother Nature imagines. Strength, simplicity, and seaworthiness drive every Parker build, and my first glimpse of the new 2200 CC on a November test day in South Florida, quickly revealed its roots in Carolina.

The V-shaped hull design, with its proud bow and flare, perfectly tames a considerable chop. Raised bow compartments to port and starboard provide seating and dry storage. Both are insulated to serve as fish boxes. A pedestal table fills the space between them to form either a front casting bridge or a picnic area with a view.

The 3-foot-wide console features a roomy head compartment inside, as well as seating for two up front with a backrest and cooler designed to double as a livewell. The professional side of the console offers ample space for all the essential electronics, including a pair of 10-inch multifunction displays. If you’re short on mounting space, the optional hardtop kit includes a suspended electronics box.

An aluminum leaning post offers standard helm seats for the skipper and a companion, but Parker offers an improved version with folding bolsters and a fiberglass module that incorporates storage for equipment on the port side, as well as a livewell. larger 33 gallon and a pair of flush- mount rod holders on the back.

Cockpit and Fishing

Rod storage includes four recessed racks on the gunwales, two more on the optional fiberglass leaning post, and a four-rod rocket launcher as part of the optional hardtop package. Hidden behind a pair of removable folding seats in the opposite rear corners, the rear doors offer direct access to the twin swim platforms which also make it easier to board trophy fish.

The only Yamaha F250 on my test boat turned out to be a great match for the 2200 CC, which remained nimble and responsive through a number of turns and maneuvers, and showed the desired power and speed on the lines. straight. The Parker went from zero to 30 mph in 9.4 seconds and flirted with 49 mph at full throttle. At 3,500 rpm, the Parker achieved its best fuel efficiency, spinning at 28 mph while burning just 9.3 gph (3.01 mpg).

The 2200 CC kept me comfortable running in 4ft seas and winds of nearly 20mph. And while the boat has plenty of fishing and comfort features to offer, for many boat buyers, it is the smooth, dry ride – an integral part of Parker’s DNA – that is likely to seal the boat. case.
