Bayliner-Trophy-T22Cc main

The Trophy T22CC Center Console and its sister, the T22CX cruising version, are the largest of Bayliner’s center consoles. They are identical in every respect with the exception of the stern seating area.

The CC version features a pair of outer flip-down stern jump seats flanking a center-mounted aerated livewell. Aft of the livewell on top of the transom are a pair of flush mounted rod holders as well as a pair of drink holders. With the jump seat backs folded down and the lid of the livewell closed, an aft casting platform is created if fishing is more your pleasure.

The CX version features a fixed stern bench seat comfortable for two stretching from the port side gunwale across the transom to the starboard side swim platform section. There are a pair of drink holders next to the starboard end of the bench seat.

The commendably large swim platform section houses the swing down boarding ladder. It is this seating arrangement with more convenient access to swimming and watersports that differentiates the CX cruising version. Both versions also have a port side integrated swim platform section. From here on, all is identical between both models.

Moving forward from the swim platform, base power comes from a 150 horsepower Mercury® Four Stroke EFI outboard. If you want more power you can move up to a 175, 250, or even 300 horsepower Mercury® Four Stroke. Hydraulic steering is standard with optional power steering available for 175 HP and higher.

Beneath the gunnels on both sides of the self-draining cockpit are longitudinal tracks for quick mounting of Bayliner’s Track System Storage Bags. A two-person helm bench seat cum lenaing poost is fixed to a molded base, which contains a large livewell flanked by a pair of drinkholders. On the aft side of the leaning post seatback are four vertical rod holders and another pair of drinkholders.

The center console helm features a standard stainless steel tilt steering wheel on the left side with binnacle mount engine controls to its right and a row of DC toggle switches. Above those on the dash face are a standard pair of multi-function gauges with fog-resistant lenses for speedometer and fuel, tachometer and voltmeter. These can be upgraded to the very useful Mercury® Vessel/View® Mobile monitor. Below the helm face are two-tiered full-width molded footrests to serve the driver and passenger at the helm.

There is lots of room on the dash to replace and upgrade the standard gauges with optional single, or even a pair of seven, nine, or twelve-inch glass screens providing navigation and engine data. An in-dash digital depth indicator is also available. A waterproof 120-watt AM/FM stereo with MP3 capability and four speakers is standard equipment. Ahead of the dash is a tall windscreen and safety grab handles are provided on each side of the dash.

Within the center console itself is a huge storage compartment cum change room accessed by a starboard side door. An optional porta-potti is available. On the forward face of the center console is a single fixed seat with seatback. It faces U-shaped full-surround bow seating with removable seat cushions. Beneath the bow seat cushion is a dedicated anchor locker.

A pair of removable seatback cushions allow stretch-out lounging on each side of the bow seating area. The optional bow filler cushion converts this area to either a full wrap-around sunlounge or to a good-sized casting platform. An insulated fishbox which doubles as a great beverage cooler is provided in the bow.

Other notable standard equipment includes four hullside colour choices in addition to white and two choices of upholstery colours as well as a tandem axle galvanized trailer with brakes and a swing tongue. Most notable of the optional equipment would be the T-Top, which includes four more rod holders and is hinged to allow it to fold forward for ease of trailering and storage. A bimini top is also available as is a snap-on center console and helm seat cover.

You may also choose gray or teak cockpit flooring mats, a stainless steel appearance package, removable ski tow pylon, an interior lighting package, an exterior lighting package which includes LED docking lights and underwater lighting, a removable cockpit table, transom shower, and a large hullside “Trophy” decal set.

Bayliner’s Trophy T22CC Center Console and its sister, the T22CX cruising version, are ideal day boats and can be specifically outfitted to suit your boating priorities of fishing, cruising, entertaining, or exploring.
