Default Bull Bay boats

I need your opinions. I am looking to downsize after the sale of my large center console. Anyone have any experience with the Bulls Bay boats in the skiff sizes. I looked at a couple in southeast NC but would like to get some input from non-dealers. Thanks.

Looked them over at the Crystal Coast Boat Show and they seem to be one heck of a boat but I have never ridden on one. I do know that Chaos makes one heck of a boat also, and so does the THT Member Bills 106.

Bulls Bay are made by Pioneer. You can not go wrong with a Pioneer; excellent price, very nicely finished, solidly constructed boats. Pioneer stands behind their boats and customers like few other boat manufacturers.

X2 on the Pioneer brand. Pioneer is very happy to have owners and potential owners visit the factory in SC. I only have experience with Pioneer, but last time I was in the factory they were working on the Bulls Bay there and they looked really nice. I think they goal was to have the quality of Pioneer but without as many bells and whistles. So it could compete at a different price and style market.

I have a sv1900 also. I looked at the bull bay boats at the show in January. If I was in the market for a new boat I'd probably be looking at the bull bay and the new sea pro. I don't know if they are similar in price though.

I have a Bulls Bay 151. Great riding little skiff. Don't think they make that model anymore though.

Default I bought Bulls bay 2200

I bought the Bulls Bay 2200 December 2015. I love it! Mine has the 150 Suzuki. I chose the Suzuki over the yahama for two reasons. 1- I owned a Suzuki df115 for 7 years with no problems. Loved it. 2- my new boat with Suzuki offered a free 6 year warrantee on my motor. Yahama only had 3 year. It was a hard decision because yahama are famous for being the best outboard motor. At least here in Florida. I spoke to the certified Suzuki and yahama technician - he told me the Suzuki is more fuel efficient and had 15% higher output. So I went to both manufactures web page and put both motors side by side. I choose Suzuki. By the way - with 2 adults and a full tank of gas, trimmed up at 6k rpm 21 pitch prop, my boat did 47 mph on GPS. This boat will never see 50mph like others have said.

The boat rides great in smooth and rough waters. If you have ever owned a boat- you know there is no such thing as "dry storage." While simply spraying my boat down, every storage box got wet. What I find neat is every box and the rod holders and the cup holders all have drain lines to the rear of the boat.

This 22' has tons of storage. All composit construction - no wood. Very solid. I paid $34,500 out the door with all the options and an upgraded trailer

Overall -- I 100% recommend this boat. I think you're crazy if you spend more money on any other centerconsole boat.

I purchased my boat at Florida Family Marine and they were very nice, clean shop, lots of products at fair price.

They are awesome boats! We actually have one for sale. It is rigged to the max. Only reason for selling is we had the chance to buy a friends 24' Ranger Bay and jumped on it!

I have a SeaPro SV2100, same bottom and similar top deck.

It is an awesome boat for the NC coast. Fish 35 miles out one day and the next day slap the trolling motor on and hunt drum and trout in 2 foot of water.

I have mine for sale if you are interested, older but only 300 hours on the Evinrude.
