Speed with Ease: The 2013 Yamaha 212SS
For a 21-foot speed boat, Yamaha’s new 212SS model has put up big efforts on blending comfort and ease whilst being mighty fast, all at the same time. In terms of design, the boat gives off the feeling like you’re driving behind the wheel of a marine version of a roadster with the cockpit’s sports car-inspired design its perfectly-positioned throttles and easy-toread gauges controlled by an internal GPS system. Another highlight is also its ‘Low Speed Handling Technology,’ which directs the water flow at an optimum angle, creating a more responsive handling as the boat is turned right and left (port side and starboard) at slow speeds. Whereas for space, the boat has more rooms in the bow, in the cockpit, and on the stern swim platform for plenty of sightseeing opportunities for the people on deck. And might we add that it also has a removable carpet on its floor? And to complete its high-speed package, the boat’s 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, 1.8-liter twin engine is said to blast the whole vessel from zero to 30 in less than 4 seconds, with top speeds over 55 miles-per-hour. Not forgetting its onboard entertainment, the boat has a CD player, an MP3 player input and a convenient stern-mounted remote, and built with a premium Clarion® Stereo system that delivers outstanding sound quality for music on a slow cruise.
