Pathfinder 2200 TRS Review

The Ideal Blend of Fishing and Family Fun


The Pathfinder 2200 TRS is a superbly constructed and intuitively designed vessel that is built to accommodate a fishing trip or family fun alike. While it may sound cliché to say, this boat genuinely does “have it all.” This detailed review will present an in-depth examination of the features, performance, and overall value that the Pathfinder 2200 TRS offers.

Design and Features

The Pathfinder 2200 TRS, an evolution of the 2200 Tournament Edition, displays a perfect balance between serious fishing potential and family-friendly features. It boasts a spacious layout, smart storage solutions, and a smooth, dry ride even in choppy waters. The attention to detail is impressive and speaks to the quality and craftmanship Pathfinder is known for.

On the fishing front, the 2200 TRS is well equipped. It has a large, aerated live-well at the stern, a release well, and ample rod storage. The fishing decks are roomy and unobstructed, providing plenty of space for casting and maneuvering. The boat’s console is well-designed with easy-to-read, back-lit gauges and enough space for adding a large display for a GPS/fishfinder.

For family trips, the 2200 TRS offers plenty of seating with comfortable cushions, a forward-console seat, and even a pair of flip-up jump seats at the stern. The boat’s high gunwales ensure safety for the kids, and there’s also a swim platform with a boarding ladder, perfect for water sports or a casual swim.

Performance Beyond Expectations

At the heart of the Pathfinder 2200 TRS lies a powerhouse of performance. Designed to accommodate a single outboard engine, this vessel effortlessly handles up to 300 horsepower. It’s not just the raw power that sets the 2200 TRS apart, but it’s how this power is transformed into an incomparable on-the-water experience.

From the moment you push the throttle, you’ll be impressed by how quickly the Pathfinder 2200 TRS gets on plane, maintaining a consistent and smooth ride even at cruising speeds. The superior hull design ensures it cuts through waves with an enviable confidence that will leave you feeling secure and relaxed, even in choppy conditions. The 2200 TRS’s performance isn’t limited to open waters; its agility in navigating shallow waterways sets it apart in the realm of inshore fishing and leisure cruising.

What does this mean for you as the captain? More fishing spots, more hidden beaches to explore, and more unforgettable adventures to be had. Whether you’re planning a long fishing trip or a day of family fun, you’ll find the 2200 TRS not only meets but exceeds your performance expectations. It’s a testament to Pathfinder’s relentless pursuit of engineering excellence.
