The new design of the Party Barge 22 Sport Fish Regency Edition really does a good job of hiding a luxurious pontoon and a fishing pontoon in one model. The 26” tubes give you a smooth ride and the newly redesigned seating is plush. Thoughtful design such as integrated drinkholders at floor level when you are lounging up front tells you they use these boats and listen to their customers.

The Team at BoatTEST finds that the upscale Regency Edition offers a unique high end twist to this line. We think they have hit the mark with bringing class and excitement to this new design direction.

Sun Tracker Party Barge 22 Sport Fish Regency Captain's Report

Sun Tracker Party Barge 22 Sport Fish Regency Edtion O/B

By Capt. Rob Smith

Sun Tracker’s Party Barge Series sounds like they are built for partying, but when you climb on board you see a different look than expected. This pontoon boat is built with luxury and refinement with elegant appointments and comfort from bow to stern.

Measurements

The Party Barge 22 measures 24’4” length overall with a beam width of 8’6”. She weighs in at 2121lbs and carries 30 gallons of fuel. This model has 26” diameter pontoons that are multi-chambered. These NV Performance logs are tuned for maximum speed and improved handling. Seating capacity is 14 people and a total weight of 3000lbs people and gear. This model is rated for up to 125hp outboards.

Features Up Front

Beginning with the bow, the navigation lights are deck mounted and the cleats are easy to handle loops. They use a concealed bow boarding ladder tucked under the starboard side, but I find that arrangement difficult to work with from aboard the boat. The gates on this model are child safe double locking and are wide enough to get through with wide loads of gear. The top rails have shape to them and are rounded rather than the industrial square edges and straight lines. Since you can fish from just about any pontoon, you will certainly be fishing in comfort or riding in style with the two captain’s chairs up front. Armrests flip up and the back is fully adjustable for comfort.The bench seats are heavily cushioned for comfort with roto-molded seat bases for storage. Kicker speakers are mounted in the seat backs for maximum sound.

From the side entry

You can net in a large bass from the side entry gate or use it for climbing on board from the docks when you stop for lunch at the marina. The helm has a low profile windshield so it fits better in the garage. You can tuck a small cooler under the newly designed console. This new molded console is fully instrumented including a compass and digital depth sounder. The dash has nice burlwood accents, lighted rocker switches and a matching three spoke wheel. I liked having a handy tray on top of the dash for my cell phone and sunglasses. The driver has the same comfortable and fully adjustable captain’s chair as up front.

Aft Seating

The gang can all join you on the way in the aft L-bench seat that wraps around from the center gate to the stern gate. Kicker speakers are in the seat backs for better audio and LED lights are mounted just under the edge to light the floor at night. You can set up a table to serve some snacks up front or back. I like the rubber pad on top to keep things in place. A sun pad is across the back edge behind the stern portion of the bench. It has a heavy bolster that will keep you safely on board. Lifting it up you have room to stow the tabletop to port. Next to the stern gate under the sun pad is a flip-up changing room.

Swim Platform

The design gives you room for a real swim platform aft the sun pad deck and through the stern gate. The engine is mounted to leave room for the kids to use this as a launching pad at anchor or for you to get around the engine to check it out before a day of cruising and fishing. On the starboard side is a flip-over ladder to easily climb back on board after swimming.
