This top is a lot bigger than the one on the 210. It's the same as the 255. Cycle springs in Tampa used to make a hard top for the 210. You might want to check with them if you just want the top.
They no longer make the T top….check with RT Marine and their add a top.

@FSH 210 Sport, do you find yourself wearing the ear plugs all the time when running you boat or just when running at higher r.p.m.s?

this is a good one with different level of protection. I usually leave the little hole open so I can still have conversations while in shooting range, also use it riding motorecycles and boating https://www.amazon.com/SureFire-Defenders-filtered-Earplugs-reusable/dp/B004DH65RI/ref=sr_1_1?crid=SUX113369IFT&keywords=SureFire+EP4+Sonic+Defenders+Plus+filtered+Earplugs,+triple+flanged+design,+reusable,+Black,+Medium&qid=1661655628&sprefix=surefire+ep4+sonic+defenders+plus+filtered+earplugs,+triple+flanged+design,+reusable,+black,+medium,aps,1808&sr=8-1

I usually only wear ear plugs if I’m going to be cruising for a while, like more than 10-15 minutes at cruising speed. If it’s just at trolling speed I don’t wear them.

Does anyone know how big the helm/head storage area is when closed in the 222/252/255? It looks like a large area when open but how much is left when closed? Is there enough room for 4 beach chairs(we use the costco back pack kind) with a toilet in place?

71,999.00. Whew! Im good with my 210 sport. I do like the upgrades to the windsheild, aft seating, stereo and hardtop options. Not a big fan of the livewell , but in real use its prob fine. Oh, and they fixed the damn anchor locker! Hallelujah

Nice find on the article!

I thought the fuel mpg might be a bit better but it’s in line with other boats of this size and weight in Yamahas line up.

As @Dixemon mentioned, as well as the Boating captain, the live wells’ capacity is enough at 26 gallons but its shape is not conducive to larger fish swimming in it. For most this isn’t an issue, but for my use it could be an issue, especially for tournament fishing where fish of 20” or more need to be able to swim around while waiting for the run back to the Marina for weigh in.

The anchor locker hatch fix is a big improvement as well!

Not trying to throw poop on the roses…it’s a great boat.

I also went through the review, and saw a lot of good things. This is how crazy thoughts start.

Is there room where you can mod and extend the livewell?

Answers to some questions from my contact at Yamaha:

  • Do you have a photo of the 22 ‘ FSH Dash? Looking to see what all the hard switches are for. I’m missing #1, and #5 (were behind the steering wheel).
    • #1 is nav lights # 5 is the underwater light. NOTE: This boat is not final spec and those buttons may change function and position before final production.
  • Is there and aerator AND fill switch for the bait tank, or just water fill?
    • Again, very pre-production but it will most likely be a 3-position toggle switch that goes Off/Fill/Aerate.
  • Any decisions yet on what will go in the starboard cabinet?
    • Not yet
  • Any performance numbers on MPG, top speed with the two engine options?
    • Not yet
  • I understand the 27, 25 and 22 foot boats will have the swim seat brackets (except the ones with surfpointe). Which models will come with the seats Stock vs an add on?
    • Seats come with all the 275 models, and the 25 and 22’ SD/SE/S models.
The "Not Yet" answers validate that the 22' FSH is not yet shipping or potentially even being built at the factory. I should get an update from them once they've determined what they will do.

@FSH 210 Sport - some or all of these were questions you asked.

Probably about the only thing that could be done would be to set a self contained larger diameter live well on the swim step and power it with the house battery.

If you were just using the live well for bait fish, crustaceans etc… it will probably be fine.

Just saw this boat test review of the 222 FSH Sport E. I think there are a couple of basic errors….in one of the pics you get a good view of the live well. As I said in my previous post, it will be fine for minnows and such but not for keeping fish alive. We caught a 28” pike last Sunday and it fit just fine in my 210’s live well, no way could a fish like that be kept in the new 222 live well.. pretty much my only complaint with the new boat.

Looks like boat test pulled their test down.. I got this screen when I clicked on the link I posted. Had a friend of mine check on it and he got the same page. Guess someone wasn’t happy with that review.

Oh that is funny. They really should figure out how to make that live-well better. It should have all the width the 210 does at the bottom at least. I still want to see in that storage compartment on the starboard rear, but it doesn't seem like anyone has any pictures. We can hope they revise it.

Julian, I know the thread is aging but wanted to ask if you were aware as to whether the 222 FSH SPT came with snap in Marine Mat and bow filler? I have looked at all the specs and compared the two which show the mats as standard although don't see any information on the bow filler and table bracket.

Thank you
