One of the most striking Supreme hulls, the S226 commands attention both in and out of the water with its roomy pickle-fork-style bow and aggressive exterior profile. But the S226 isn’t just about looks.
A hull-flooding system called QuickFill adds 1,000 pounds of ballast within minutes, and it’s all subfloor so you don’t sacrifice storage for that weight. On top of that, you can get plug-and-play bags for an additional 1,100 pounds of displacement on top of an already weighty 22.5-foot boat. You’re talking some serious wake potential with a full complement of passengers and 43 gallons of fuel. To clean things up and adjust the wake’s pitch, the larger-than-ever Stinger Wake Plate takes command. When you want to surf, you can opt for the QuickSurf system so you don’t have to change your weighting configuration after your wakeboard set.
Inside, the S226 features a clean helm with good-old analog gauges that you’ll be able to work your first time out and rocker switches that are clearly on or clearly off. If you want to go techy, the SeeTouch dash is a small center digital screen that encompasses everything from wake shaping to diagnostics, and ballast to, of course, speed control.
A Clarion stereo remote is right at your fingertips so the captain has total control of the tunes.
Look for high-gloss vinyl covering ergonomic seats that reveal stowage underneath. Marine-grade foam covers the floor so cleanup at the end of the day is a breeze, and the floor won’t get moldy like carpet.
The bow is so big, it should have its own zip code and, without a doubt, will be the place to congregate whether you’re running down the lake or relaxing at the dock. A chaise-style lounge seat can fit three across at the very front, and cup holders, LED lighting and speakers keep them comfortable.
