Model Introduction
The SX210 is one of 2 waterjet-powered bowrider platforms offered by Yamaha (the other model is a 23 footer), and features an open-bow layout, twin waterjet propulsion, excellent maneuverability, an added measure of swimmer safety (no exposed props projecting past the transom), shallow water capability (draft is that of the hull, just 16") and an easily water-accessible stern for use as a watersports tow boat. The boat is offered in three trim levels: the upscale SX 210, an SR 210 wakeboard version with tower and a base model SR 210. These models are all direct competitors to similar sterndrive-powered bowriders, and to a lesser extent, inboard wakeboard boats, which have stronger acceleration with a boarder under tow.

Yamaha's sportboats really stand out in a crowded open-bow runabout field. Viewed from forward of the transom, they look pretty much like any high-end bowrider with lots of thickly upholstered seating, a fully equipped helm console, in-deck ski and wakeboard storage, cup holders, and a walkthrough leading to a full-beam swimplatform that is much larger than what is found on other boats of this size. Modified-vee bottoms give these boats a good ride, and full fiberglass cockpit liners make them easy to clean up at the end of the day.

However, the Yamaha boats are really unique due to the drivetrain: these boats use a pair of high-revving 4-stroke gas engines driving waterjets for propulsion. Waterjets are used for everything from PWCs to high-speed ferries and military patrol boats for some excellent reasons. They draw very little water and have no propeller or drivetrain projecting below the bottom of the boat. The lack of a propeller also adds a big measure of safety for swimmers. Waterjets are also very responsive and maneuverable, so one can do a 180-degree turn and be heading in the opposite direction a boat length or so offset from the original wake. Twin engines mean extra reliability, since a boat can get home on one engine, and maneuverability dockside is very good. The very low profile of these engines makes a low-profile deck aft possible, so it's easier to get from the cockpit to the swimplatform. There's even a table for the swimplatform, making this area more of an extension of the cockpit. ...
