Nobody Does Performance Better Than Howard Custom Boats...


Howard Custom Boats have been building performance watercraft specifically to the tastes of boaters since 1959. Offering powerboats based on a v-shaped and catamaran hull style, the vessels created by Howard Custom Boats come in bow rider as well as cuddy cabin layouts. Powerboats produced at the 25,000 square-foot Howard Custom Boats manufacturing facility are constructed with only the highest quality materials. Every Howard Custom Boats vessel undergoes a water test to insure customer satisfaction.


This Howard 22 Sport is literally like new yet. It has been stored in a Climate Controlled Environment its entire life, has had impeccable care, and has less than 150 hours on it. All Howard Custom Boats are spec-built in Valencia, California and have only the best components used in their engineering and design.


Howard 22 Sport:
Featuring an all new modified vee hull with variable degree deadrise and reverse chines, this Sportster was designed for the discriminating boater who demands nothing but the finest, regardless of size. The large cockpit and spacious open bow area make this the roomiest bowrider in its class.


The unique bottom design incorporates a small step in the center portion of the hull along with a long narrow keel pad, thereby providing a flat stable platform giving you a safe and exhilarating experience. Ideally suited for lakes and protected waterways, this boat will carry 12 passengers in comfort, pull water skiers all day (on a minimum of fuel), and still run 60 mph with the Inboard 385 Horsepower MerCruiser 5.7 Litre V8. Its clean, sleek lines coupled with superb performance and handling, make this the perfect sportboat for the new millennium.


This HOWARD 22 SPORT is constructed utilizing only the finest materials available. It all starts with vinyl-ester resin and Knytex knitted Bi and Tri directional glass fabric. The entire hull is then cored with Baltek foam reinforcement. The hull and deck are joined together with Knytex 1708 Bi- directional glass fabric. The floors are molded one piece (Balsa cored) fiberglass. The seat bases, front and rear, are molded fiberglass, as is the sundeck. All stringers, bulkheads, floors and fuel tanks are installed while still in the mold to insure a perfect fit. Like all Howard's, the mold cure time is two weeks to insure proper curing and strength with no distortion. All hardware is Grade A aircraft quality stainless steel. Howard's absolute insistence on quality and meticulous attention to detail has produced the finest sportboat available.
