2024 Yar-Craft 210 TFX

The 210 TFX mixes unbeatable fishing features with an attractive fit-and-finish.

Yar-Craft’s 210 TFX hit all the marks for a professional walleye boat and added points for giving families a fun and comfortable cruising and water-play platform as well. The optional ­Mercury 300 Pro XS outboard pushed our test boat to 59 mph at 6,000 rpm spinning a 22-pitch Mercury Bravo One XS stainless-steel propeller. The TFX accelerates like a rocket ship with a 4.3-second hole shot and just 5.3 seconds to 30 mph.

For the serious up-country angler, there’s a nifty trolling-motor panel that features a quick disconnect for the ­troller power wires, as well as a digital voltmeter to see available battery power at a glance. A bow can house an optional flush-mounted 12-inch graph, or you can opt for one flush- and one bracket-mounted—a new necessity with the ­popularity of live-scan sonar.

Dry storage on the 210 is dry, thanks to new soft-edge seals that also keep the lids from chattering. The center lid houses a three-tier rod locker and easy access to the trolling motor batteries.

Behind the tempered-glass windshield is a deeper, wider cockpit than past models; that’s in response to ­Yar-Craft fans’ demand for more stomping space on deck. The helm’s flush-mounted 12-inch Garmin graph is boat-and-engine integrated for at-a-glance views of boat systems and ­engine performance. Yar-Craft uses the same unique hexagonal rim ­steering wheel as Bass Cat, for ­better rough-water grip and control. The interior features swiveling ­pedestal-mounted seats, with four total seat pedestal sockets, so customizing the seating configuration is easy. Stepping up to the bow casting platform is via a ­padded step over a built-in cooler.

Aft, there’s an access hatch in the sole to get to the cranking battery and master on/off switch. The livewell resides just behind the cockpit, flanked by dry-storage lockers, with two more storage compartments aft of that. 

Ample storage, unbeatable fishing features, and attractive, durable fit-and-finish make the 210 TFX the 21-footer to beat in the coming season.
