Center Console 22'


The PROTECTOR  22′ Center Console RIB Boat is an open console design with a center steering position and a large, dry storage area below the console. The 22’ Center Console RIB Boat model offers comfortable seating for 4-6 people and an optional canvas T-top. Its multi-purpose, high-performance solid hull design is unprecedented in its category.

The Center Console RIB’s solid laminate fiberglass hull is built for strength and safety and the chambered hypalon tubes provide shock absorption, stability and additional flotation. Together, the deep-V hull and UV-resistant tubes create unmatched safety and performance compared to traditional hard sided boat designs.

I’ve owned a ton of boats in this size range, however not one has ever come close to the ride quality and agility of the Protector 22′ Center Console RIB Boat.
