Sea Ray SPX 210
Sea Ray refers to its SPX 210 as an “entry level” boat, but we beg to differ. She’s loaded with features that are way beyond that level, and she has a comfort that rivals the company’s more premium models.
Apparently, the team at Sea Ray didn’t get the memo that “entry level” boats are supposed to be bare bones and designed to just get someone into the brand for short money. While the SPX 210 may be cost effective, we have our doubts that she’s entry level. She’s got the versatility to do most things quite well, whether it be tow sports, coving or just spending the day cruising protected water, the SPX 210 seems to be the Jack-of-all-Trades. She has a towable 8’6” (2.59m) beam and a 21’6” (6.58m) length overall that gives her easy handling capability.
She’s also sporting some features of the old days, that made Sea Ray’s what they are. The curved windshield, the contour lines, and the curving rubrail all harken back to those good old days. Inside, this is far from a “thrown together” model. The beam is carried well forward providing plenty of room for lounding, sunning, and even sitting while facing each other without knocking the knees together. High bulwarks ensure a level of safety, an important factor as this will surely be the place the kids scramble to.
In the cockpit, there’s wraparound seating with a bench taking up the whole port side. A reversible seatback for the observer allows conversion from forward to aft facing. Storage is under all the seats, including a space for a carry-on cooler. A built in cooler is under the transom bench.
Choose the sterndrive version with a full width swim platform, or the outboard version with added storage under the aft sunpad.
