Cypress Cay's Cabana 220 is profiled in Boating magazine's 2016 Boat Buyers Guide, which features reviews of all the hottest new boats on the market.
The magazine emphasizes the Cabana 220's role as a "socially oriented" boat with room for 14 passengers and their gear, noting "every seat is the best in the house." The addition of the T3 performance package, which includes a 25-inch diameter center tube, performance strakes and an underdeck aluminum skin "gives the Cabana 220 exceptional handling with the nimble, inside lean more typical of a V-hull. With a fuel-efficient Mercury 150 FourStroke XL outboard, the Cabana came onto plane in a quick 3.2 seconds and reached the 30 mph benchmark in 9.3 seconds. Top speed edged just past 37 mph."
