Snapshot Review

Yamaha 210 FSH idle
The new Yamaha 210 FSH has an LOA of 21’3” (6.47 m), a beam of 8’6” (2.59 m), and a draft of 17” (0.43 m).

Overview

The all-new Yamaha 210 FSH is a jet-powered center console fishing boat capable of running in just inches of water. She has an 8'6" (2.59 m) beam and a 21'3" (6.47 m) LOA and is designed for fishing as well as family watersports. She's available in FSH, FSH Deluxe and FSH Sport versions, with added features in the latter versions.

With a 20-degree deadrise and a sharp forward entry plus plenty of freeboard, she should be at home in the largest bays and lakes as well as off the beach in good weather.

Power

All versions are powered with twin Yamaha TR-1™ High Output marine engines, 1049cc 3-cylinder four-strokes that the company says are 40% smaller than predecessors and weighing in at a mere 160 lbs. (73 kg) each. The engines are housed under the leaning post; there's no conventional engine box aft and no outboard motor to block fishing or enjoying the swim platform.

Safe Operation

The big plus of a jet-powered fishing boat is that operation in extreme shallows can be worry-free, even where there are unmarked sandbars, rocks and stumps; the drive system is virtually flush with the bottom of the boat. Jet propulsion eliminates the danger of a spinning prop when swimmers or wake-boarders are in the water. The inventive Articulating Keel should make handling around the docks much easier than with conventional jets. Like all Yamaha jetboats, the 210 FSH features Yamaha’s patented clean-out ports that allow for the removing of weeds and debris from the jet pump without having to get in the water or swim under the boat.

Ready for Multiple Missions

The Yamaha 210 FSH has angling features such as coaming pads, vertical and horizontal holders for 14 rods, a 26-gallon aerated livewell, 5-gallon bucket storage, and Yamaha's exclusive Jet Wash® system, which uses pressure from the jet pumps for easy cleanup of the cockpit.

The Deluxe and Sport versions also include a trolling motor mount at the bow. The T-top is standard on the FSH Sport, shading the console and including four rod holders across the top. The five cleats are all pop-ups to avoid snagging lines or stubbing toes.

Yamaha 210 FSH fishing features
The 210 FSH comes standard with many fishing features, including vertical and horizontal holders that hold 14 rods, a 26 gallon (98 L) livewell, 5 gallon (19 L) bucket as well as Yamaha’s exclusive Jet Wash®, and a T-top.

Details and Amenities

At the wide bow, there's comfortable, padded seating with room for four adults. The padded cushions snap off so they're easy to leave at home when the mission is fishing. The console lifts up to reveal a large storage area that can also serve as a changing room or a head compartment thanks to the curtain enclosure included on the Deluxe and Sport models. The storage area also provides convenient access to the electronic wiring on the backside of the helm for easy installation of aftermarket electronics.

Instruments. The console includes Yamaha's 4.3" Connext Touchscreen Display, which is NMEA® compatible to send engine information to third party electronics, as well as the usual basic gauges plus an in-dash analog compass. There's also adequate space to flush-mount a sonar/GPS and added instrumentation. The windshield is removable, allowing an easier fit into a low storage facility for the models without the T-top.

Yamaha 210 FSH transom
The 210 FSH’s transom is a great place to get ready for watersports or just to relax since it has two aft-facing seats.

The transom includes two aft-facing seats, good spots to gear up for watersports as well as to relax after a swim. The built-in swim platform is easily reached by stepping over the low seatbacks on the back of the transom and could act as a casting platform as well as an easy spot to land a larger fish.

The base models FSH come in black hullside, the Deluxe model in Yacht Blue, and the Sport in Suede Gray or Slate Blue with gleaming white above the sheer line.

Yamaha 210 FSH beached
The new Yamaha 210 FSH can be anchored near the beach, so that family can get out and enjoy the sand and water.

Price

Starting price is under $40,000.

Standard Trailer

A factory-matched tandem-axle trailer with swing-away tongue is standard, and at a total package weight, including trailer of 3,890 lbs. (1,764 kg), she's readily towed by a mid-size vehicle.

All fuel consumption numbers are the total for all engines in the boat. Speeds are measured with Stalker ProSports radar gun or GPS. Fuel consumption (gallons per hour) measured with Floscan digital fuel-flow meter or by on-board factory-installed diagnostic instruments. Range is based on 90% of published fuel capacity. Sound levels determined using Radio Shack digital decibel meter on A scale. 68 dBA is the level of normal conversation. Time to plane is measured from start of acceleration to formation of rooster tail behind boat.
