Heyday Launches All-New H22 Wakeboat with Host of Mercury Features
By: Scott Way
Heyday Wake Boats has announced the release of the all-new H22 model as the Brunswick-owned manufacturer continues to gain market share in the wakesports category. The H22 will have a starting pricepoint around $75,000 USD with a host of popular Mercury features that will make it an attractive option for wakesports enthusiasts.
“During our Investor Day in May, we announced our commitment to investing in a disruptive brand in the tow segment, based on extensive research into the needs of our customer. We are now thrilled to officially launch the H22,” said Aine Denari, Brunswick Boat Group president. “Heyday has already been dramatically over-indexing on growth in this highly-profitable segment and this launch will further accelerate the brand’s growth, increasing accessibility and participation in this segment by offering maximum value at an inclusive price point.”
The H22 will bring a 14-person capacity inside an LOA of 22'4" and an 8'6" beam with "multi-configuration seating options" allowing it to be modified depending on the activity. Sliding seats, a transformable sunpad, and a 20 square foot bow lounge create a variety of layouts depending if the day will include entertainment, family time, dedicated tow sports, or all of the above. GoPro mounts at the tower allow users to capture their sessions, and a Rockport Fosgate 4 speaker system provides ample motivation while on a session. The tower folds down for easy storage when not in use, and a removable swim platform with grab handle comes on/off with ease.
Several notable features from within the Brunswick portfolio include the Mercury Smart Tow system to enable drivers to set acceleration settings and cruise control speeds using a GPS control. The Integrated Wake System provides symmetry in waves and can be set to manage the height, length, and push of waves without the need for gates or tabs. Integrated ballast tanks are synched to the 9" Mercury VesselView touchscreen display at the helm and can hold up to 2950 lbs of water. Power options include a Mercury 6.2L engine packing 370 horsepower. Each boat also comes standard with a tandem axle trailer with Gatorstep covered fenders and steel wheels. Available options include the choice of seven different deck colours and five different hull colours, as well as accent gel colours.
One of Brunswick's biggest attractants to the new model will be the Wake and Ride Tour for interested buyers with thirteen stops across the United States and one in Canada. Attendees can participate in live demos, get a guided walk-through, and meet Heyday pro team riders.
