Biscayne 22 vs Belle Isle

Postby whsoxfan » Sun Nov 19, 2017 7:35 am

Hello Ladies and Fellas

I am considering the Biscayne 22 or the Belle Isle. What is the difference between the two models and how do they differ in handling and performance.

I'd like to attach a swim deck for tubing or water skiing

Thanks for any input, now its off to work

thanks, pat

I don't see much difference in the running surface. The Belle seems to have a little more round transom, barrel. The Biscayne has a little blockier transom. That might but you an 1" or 2" width in the rear cockpit. No handling or performance difference. Just a matter of taste.

On both designs, make the engine hatch as large as possible. Make the engine compartment front and rear bulkheads removable. Be sure you have good access to do maintenance to the shaft log packing.
