2019 Yamaha Boats 212X
2019 Yamaha 212x, Boaters who spend significant time wakeboarding are concerned with more than just cosmetics. It's all about performance, particularly when it comes to getting on plane quickly. Jet-drive boats fall right into that prerequisite, which helps riders holding a rope because nobody wants to be pulled through the water while the boat struggles to get up and go. With the twin High Output engines fired up on the 212X, we barely noticed the 2.5 seconds it took to get up to plane. The power and weight of the engines also help keep the stern from being swung around when a rider is edging from one side to another. Another key test among wakeboarders is the wake. The 212X adds a ballast system, a first for Yamaha, to pull more hull into the water. With a flip of a switch, the 212X can be loaded with up to 750 pounds of wake-building weight.
