Although Wellcraft’s best known for making fishing boats, it does make one model that’s also a great ski boat.
The Wellcraft 210 Sportsman is a 21 foot long sport cruiser that’s designed for family fun. The classic open cockpit design is perfect for a water ski or wake boarding trip and for angling. Even though it’s a small open cockpit boat, the 210 Sportsman is loaded with features normally found in bigger boats.
Some great electronics options are available for the cockpit including a Raymarine A65 combination chart plotter and fish finder. A Sirius Satellite Radio system that includes a CD player, an AM/FM radio, an MP3 jack and four speakers is also available.
The cockpit features nine beverage holders, a bimini top, an 80 quart baitwell, a 48 quart cooler, fish boxes, a raw water wash down, a tackle tray and pedestal seats. Even on this smaller model Wellcraft adds a lot of features for the fisherman. So this is truly a good boat for the entire family. Serious fishermen can replace the bimini top with a sport arch that contains additional rod holders. It has storage for both rods and skis or wakeboards so everybody can enjoy their favorite activity out on the water.
One of the best options available for a boat this small is the fully equipped head. There’s a fully self contained head with a toilet paper holder and a storage compartment. Another great option is a ski pylon for water sports lovers.
The mechanical system gives owners a bait well pump and a hydraulic lift steering. There’s also a state of the art electrical system with submersible rated electrical connections so the fish finder and chart plotter will always have power. All of the switches are weather resistant so the 210 Sportsman will keep running even in bad weather.
Stainless steel rails and a thick fiberglass hull make for a classic sleek look. Three optional colors yellow, blue and black make this one colorful boat. Another great option is a freshwater system that includes a shower so the family can wash the salt off after a day of water sports.
Like all Wellcraft boats, the 210 Sportsman has a large number of engine options for more power. There are five Evinrude E-Tec engines available for the 210 Sportsman; the 150,200,225,250 and 200 E-Tec HD for those who prefer diesel. There’s also four Yamaha four stroke engines that can be ordered with the 210 Sportsman. These include the F 150, the F 200, the F-225 and the F-250.
If you’re looking for a small but fully loaded fishing or ski boat the 210 Sporstman is the boat for you.
