2018 Sea Ray SPX 210 OB Review
2018 Sea Ray SPX 210 OB Review Sea Ray created a new team of runabouts called the SPX series. The SPX 210 is a Bowrider that focuses on sport with flexible seats in the cockpit, a generous swim platform and a Transom passageway. Thanks to the Mercurial V6 Stern Power, the SPX helps maintain low-cost operation while also providing all the tools for a good amount of time.
The lesson is onboard 21-foot bowriders. Sea Ray’s 21 SPX if it maximizes it better than most. The Gunwales are thin to increase the space of the cockpit, and a six-foot 6-inch beam extends longer than the standard. A gentle bow to the bow magnifies the forward cockpit instead of pushing it to a point.
The result is a surprising 12-passenger capacity. Most find a seat on the huge L-shaped lounge of the main cockpit and the wide Portside bank. Position the removable seat back backwards and you have a forward-facing chaise. Move it a pillow length forward to make a forward-facing seat behind the port console and an observer seat aft. or add a fill pad to the port console to create a back-facing lounge. The filler is stowed neatly under a hinged seat cushion. A sun cushion awaits those who want to enjoy the rays. Tilt the forward half and you will have a rear couch for two if you hang at the sandbar.
The SPX joins a growing list of models that offer a choice of star drive or outboard drive. Below the sun pad of whether the property that is normally reserved for an iron block is now ready for more than 13 cubic feet of equipment. There is more space in the partitioned compartment to the starboard, as well as below the Transom passage. The latter provides access to the battery. The adjacent step is also ready for use.
In fact, the stowage is consistently above average. Under the starboard part of the L-shaped lounge is a special place for a hand cooler and a cooler with a drain below the rear seat. Add the port console, lockable glovebox and generous ski locker, and you won’t want to leave room.
While the options included a 200 hp Mercury Verado Pro, the light Mercury 150 outboard of our test boat offered a lot of strength for our minimal testing load and jumped in less than 4 seconds with very little bow climb on the plane. We reached the 30 mph benchmark in less than 8.5 seconds, and the speed topped to 46.6 mph in the distance of ideal conditions.
