I have always liked the 22 Phantom and wanted one with a Single for a while. Kevin pumps out some amazing stuff and this fit and finish is next to none in my opion and this boat shows it. I found this one today but looks like I am going to keep looking 😰 LOL. This is one of the cleanest one's I have seen but 240K I am a little short on funds.

I’d be all over that if it had a triple axle trailer.😂

Right - Lol. How much are the 400 ROS engines going for?

Kevin builds a great boat, but for a little more cash I can build a new DCB 28 with 400's. Too much, especially for a used boat.

more power to them if they get anywhere near that price.😊

I’m not knocking KMG I think they build a really nice boat, I wish they could’ve bought the 25 Daytona molds.😎

Well, I guess I'd let my 19' Daytona go for $100K. It's a smoking deal! 😁

You could buy a new 22 Liberator with a 450 for about 105 nicely loaded... that guy is smoking dope with that ROS 400....I like the KMG 22... but I like the Liberator better, light and runs faster with same power

They only cut up the old deck. They still use the same bottom.

Beat me to it. I think you can get a 23 Talon with a 450 for 110k
The Talons and Liberators have a MUCH smaller cockpit than the KMG though. I agree this ain't a $240k boat though. Specially with an engine that is gonna be shelved by Merc soon.

A buddy of mine has been negotiating on one and I think he’s at $68k for a brand new one.

I saw that boat at kmg when it was first built, it was very nice to say the least.

$240,000 and no twins, Sea Deck or triple axle trailer??? It’s already dated....

Beautifully built. Just a little high

Not sure why that boat is listed at $249K. Performance Boats just tested one in their last issue Base price is 120K , as tested with a 450, 150K.

They are beautiful boats for sure, the price point is just nuts though. My 21 with twins would demolish that....and you get the bonus of 2 stroke smell!!

I'm not sure I would indict KMG for the ridiculous price of this. I think someone else is trying to assign a value to the ROS based on its rarity that it may not deserve

^^^ I agree. This has nothing to do with Kevin, it's the seller. KMG was on our shortlist of builders when we were considering a new small cat build. His boats are truly next level.

Does KMG use the Daytona 22' mold, or the Mach 22' mold? Can't remember.

Or how about a Lanier Custom Boats , LCB catamaran with a 450 !!!! Giddy up.
I do dig the KMG. Always have, I just think the dealer is throwing out a crazy Covid asking price to see if he gets any nibbles.

That would be a great choice too.... An LCB sport deck with a 300R or 450 would be a really fast boat!

Save your money and get the new Doug Wright designed 24 being developed for a single engine application.... It will likely be around the 150K or more than the KMG is but if know DW designs it will run in 120's with 450 and likely feel like a much larger boat doing it.
