Totally agree that these new color choices are odd, I'm not into them at all. Yamaha sent out a customer survey a few months ago asking a lot about color preferences. They had even louder color combinations they wanted feedback on. The brightly colored towers will look dated quick!
A red one faded, will look pink!

How does the bimini top work on the 21 foot boats. I didn't see any pictures online with any of the forward swept tower boats having bimini tops.

Well I haven't actually picked up my 21 foot 212 X yet; but from everything I can see it has supported folding frame poles coming off of the tower to hold the Bimini top up above the tower itself with a zipper near the nav light/tow point.

Thanks I can't wait to pick her up a week from Saturday; it's getting harder and harder to wait for the galvanized trailer to come in... But I know the upgraded trailer will be well worth the slight delay in getting the boat home.

I like the new Bimini tops. Much cleaner without all that hardware above it. Not sure I need the sunroof.
I smiled to myself when I read the last sentence here, because I had the same thought. A sunroof on a Bimini seems not unlike a sunroof on a convertible sports car. Cool, but why?
