The Eastern 22 Center Console design originated from our successful 248 hull. Input from our dealers and customers was gathered and new tooling created to bring you all the features you desire. The new console allows for all the latest electronics while providing room for a porta pottie. All composite construction, molded inner liner, V-berth seating and rear splashwell seating are a few of the features that stand out.
The 248 Islander is built for family day-cruising. We’ve added a touch of elegance and a dollop of convenience with a galley/mate unit to port, complete with sink, refrigerator, and trash storage, plus forward and rear seating covered with plush, custom upholstery and a cockpit table. With the 150-hp four-stroke on an Armstrong bracket, the closed transom gets a full-width, upholstered bench seat. A full-length cabin-top is available to shade the entire cockpit.
The Sisu 22 is the latest addition to the Eastern line of boats. It an ideal boat for cruising or fishing. Originally designed by Royal Lowell, Sisu Boats were built for over thirty years in New Hampshire and in Canada. The basic design has proven to be one of the best small sea boats ever built, and modern composite materials plus a couple of design tweaks have made this great design even better. The Sisu 22 is aptly named as Sisu is a Finnish word that means stamina, fortitude, and “guts”. The cabin offers shelter, a V-berth, and a portable toilet without compromising cockpit space and utility. The HT features an open-sided hardtop pilothouse. An economical 115-hp four-stroke outboard is all the power this new Sisu model needs for great real-world performance.
