[Excerpted from Boating Magazine , December 4th, 2021]
“Want to surf but don’t have $150,000 around to get in a fancy inboard wake bruiser? Yamaha’s gotcha covered with the 212XD Wake Series.”
“With ballast tanks for 1,100 pounds, plus the ability to set and select rider profiles to give the perfect hole shot and top speed, everything is in place for a great ride on a wake- or surfboard.”
“The Connext screen has mapping for navigation, and engine, audio and rider controls are ready for command with a tap of the screen or a jog of the joystick on the helm. Ballast tanks can be filled individually for the ideal balance. Seating inside for 10 means each rider has a big audience.”
“The cockpit is deep and so is the bow seating area, relaxing parents with its kid-keeping depth. Even the bow seats are secure with grab rails and dual jump seats for a most exciting front-facing ride.”
- Large anchor locker also hides a bow boarding ladder for convenience during beach-landing adventures.
- Surf mat’s teak and holly sole covers look and feel great underfoot, thwart stains, and are removable for easy maintenance.
