yamaha boats 2021 boating magazine boat buyers guide reviews the 255 fsh sport E

Boating Magazine talks about the all-new 255 FSH Sport E featuring E-Series® functionality and twin, Yamaha supercharged engines for a combined 500 horsepower.

[Excerpted from Boating Magazine , December 4th, 2021]

“There’s a new player in the center-console fishing-boat business, and the boatbuilder has brought something unique to the water. Yamaha’s 255 FSH Sport E has dual supercharged SVHO engines that generate over 500 hp, and they do it without taking up the transom with motors.”

“The design gives anglers an open casting deck with no obstructions, making it easy to cast and to bring fish aboard. There are two livewells on board. One is forward and has a clear front wall and an acrylic top. Its powerful pump keeps plenty of bait alive, and you’ll have a hard time turning the kids’ attention to fishing with so much action in the baitwell. There’s an aft baitwell holding 30 gallons of water too.”

“But the FSH is more than a fishing boat. It’s built with the recreational boater in mind. The aft deck is equipped with a stowable bench seat to complement the forward seating. There’s a dual-station leaning post and flip-up bolsters. A tow pylon assists in wakeboarding, and massive storage in the deck locker and under the helm provides space to stow boards.”

  • Raw-water washdown is handy for cleaning the deck after the catch.
  • Cruise control assists in maintaining trolling speed.
  • Jet pumps give the boat its shallow draft, ideal for fishing around shallow bays.
  • Two livewells
