Yamaha Unveils New 21′ Boats at New York Boat Show

Yamaha 212X

The New York Boat Show kicks off today and runs through Sunday at the Javits Convention Center. Highlighting the show this year is Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA, and its unveiling of its new 21′ boat line. 

For 2017, Yamaha has reimagined its entire 21-foot boat line from the ground up to include the new, luxurious Yamaha 212 Limited S, the 212 Limited, and watersports-driven 212X.

The difference between these high-end models is the 212 Limited S includes a forward-swept aluminum watersports tower that is not included on the 212 Limited. The 212X is much sportier than the Limited models and is designed for watersports action with its 1,100 lbs ballast system, board racks, oversized billet aluminum rear view mirror, and a premium sound system that includes a tower-mounted sound bar, subwoofer, 500-watt amp, and six Polk® Audio mid-range speakers. 

These 21-footers now have more in common with Yamaha’s flagship 24-foot models than it does with its predecessor; offering more space, more features, and improved handling.  And like the 242 models, the 212 Series now comes with Yamaha’s award-winning Connext helm control system with 7” touchscreen and joystick control.

Connect with Connext

Yamaha 212 Limited S

Connext provides critical information such as water depth, fuel gauge, RPM, compass heading and miles per hour. Scrolling functions provide access to important, but less frequented information, including maximum speed attained, miles per gallon, gallons per hour, average speed, trip odometer, elevation and engine temperature. The Connext joystick control provides additional quick access controls for top level Connext navigation including Home, Scrolling, and Volume as well as access to Yamaha’s Cruise Assist™ and No Wake Mode™.

Quieter, More Comfortable Ride

One of the best benefits that come with the new deck and hull design is the integration of Yamaha’s Quiet Cruise, a ground-up, platform-based system of sound dampening that creates a quiet, comfortable ride for all on board.  Yamaha Quiet Cruise reduces the amount of engine noise and vibration that enters the cabin at all speeds.

Yamaha’s Award-Winning Articulating Keel

Under the water line is the addition of Yamaha’s award-winning Articulating Keel that is now included on all Yamaha 21-foot boats. The Articulating Keel is a simple, ingenious mechanism that serves as an extension of the boat’s keel. Steering response is immediate and straight line tracking at all speeds effortless and high-speed cornering stability at speed is significantly enhanced.

Yamaha 1.8L High Output Engine Package

The 212 Series is powered by two 1.8L Yamaha High Output marine engines that deliver excellent performance, reliability, and durability. The 212 models outperform everything else in its category with its quick acceleration and class-leading time to plane. 

All-new from the ground up, the Yamaha 212 Series offers high-end luxury features in an easy to tow, easy to store package. The 212 Limited S, 212 Limited and 212X takes the 21-foot runabout category to a new level of comfort and convenience not seen before in boating industry.
