This boat is perfect for wakeboarding, tubing, skiing, just cruising or simply relaxing in a cove out on the water. Designed to take as many as 9-riders out for a full day of watersport fun, there is lot of room for people and everything else you may want to bring.
New for 2017:
Perfect Pass GPS based speed control (takes challenges out of maintaining perfect pulling speeds)
Thrust Vectors (easier to control boat at no-wake speeds)
Twin 1.8L 180HP Yamaha marine engines
Stern area with table mount, backrests, and stereo remote
High end stereo, Polk speakers, Bluetooth/USB/Aux Cord connectivity.
Reboarding ladders at the bow and stern
Marine grade carpet throughout
Adjustable captain’s chair with flip-up bolster
Cushions to turn bow into large flat deck for lounging
Ballast System for the HUGE wakes we want as wakeboarders
Air pump for inflatables
Under-seat and removable 36qt cooler (holds 46 cans)
Bow and Stern re-boarding ladders.
The 212X is powered by two high-performance, four-cylinder, 1812cc Yamaha marine engines (total of 360HP). The engines are connected directly to twin jet pumps with three-bladed stainless steel impellers. No propellers to worry about; an added safety factor of not having a spinning propeller under the swim platform. But if you suck a rope into the impellers expect to spend 60-80 minutes cutting it out; vigilant rope control is essential.
Top speed for this Yamaha 212X is about 50mph on a calm day with regular fuel.

Trust me, there is room for it all.
Please note that the boat is rarely available M-F due to my travel schedule.
Fuel is included. This is very fuel efficient boat so I am willing to accept the cost of the fuel you use. It is very difficult to run the 50 gallon tank low on fuel during even a typical 9-10 hr day.
Remember, if you want to wakeboard, kneeboard or ski, earlier is better to avoid traffic and get that glass.
I will deliver the boat to the water and have it ready for use at the agreed upon time. I prefer Mehaffy Boat ramp (Mehaffey Bridge Rd NE, North Liberty, IA 52317), but any of ramps are ok. Remember daily parking is $5 per car at these ramps and there is not always someone there to provide change.
Rental time: the normal BoatBound rental period 8 hours. Time always ends no later than one hour after dusk. Additional time, either agreed to or due to lateness, will be charged as per BoatBound policies. First-time renters should expect to spend 30-60 minutes upon launch for boat familiarization and driving tutorial with me.
This is a jet boat and it behaves differently than typical boats, especially at low/docking speeds. The thrust vectors I added have helped tremendously; it now behaves very similar to stern drive boats.
Only renters with previous experience on this boat will be allowed to rent bareboat and trailer. If so
The total tow weight is about 4800lbs and requires a 2" ball.
What a great day on an awesome boat! Tim was early and very thorough in his explanations. He took a short ride with us and gave us some tips. Tim and the boat exceeded our expectations. It was easy to operate and very entertaining for the whole group.
