We Say: Starcraft’s Coastal 2210 OB is a deck boat with special appeal for coastal boaters. The freshwater system with cockpit sink and transom sprayer is handy for a rinse after a dip. A saltwater-proven Yamaha F200 outboard provides excellent corrosion resistance and tilts clear of the water. With it, my test boat planed in five seconds, peaking at 46.6 mph. The 2210 rode smoothly in choppy water.
A wraparound windshield offers full protection from the elements. Step through to the aft cockpit and you’ll note twin captain’s chairs forward and a U-shaped bench spanning the remainder of the cockpit perimeter. You’ll find stowage below the bow seats and starboard console forward, and a handy open cooler nook aft. The seat above is hinged, allowing you to grab something within with a minimum of hassle. Twin ski lockers can accommodate a multitude of skis, wakeboards and other toys or gear.
Appreciate practicality? Check out the portside head compartment. You won’t find any monkey fur here, but instead a simple gelcoated interior that is easy to clean and which will resist mildew. This is all made available at a price well below those of other boats of similar size and layout.
Who’d Want One: Value-oriented coastal boaters.
Another Choice: The Hurricane SunDeck 2200 DC OB ($64,767 powered like my test boat).
