- Stock #[removed phone] - Great Condition! Very clean inside and out! A MUST SEE BOAT!!!! Runs perfect!!!!As written by We can always see the logic behind a builder coming out with a smaller boat. It's more affordable, usually entry level for any given category, and it can build brand loyalty. But anyone who gets into the under 20' market is going to have to deal with some pretty tough customers, and I'm not talking about the competition, but they're tough, too. People in this market are notorious for making sure that they are getting the most bang for the buck. The "shock" came when I first saw the new Yamaha had but a single engine, not only that but it was the same one that was part of the twin-engine system that powered Yamaha's larger watercraft. The "awe" came later, after I tested the boat and looked over the speed numbers, time to plane and 0-to-30 numbers on my clipboard. But more on that below.A Single Jet Drive With this all-new 192 series, Yamaha has kept the trademark sportboat handling characteristics. Further, the two new 19' models are feature-loaded. But the one thing that separates the two new Yamaha models from most of the other boat models on the market is that it is powered by a single jet drive. Single jet drives have been tried before and there are even a couple on the market today, but for Yamaha to build a single -- given its success in the 20' to 24' market -- had me excited to how it would perform. Could the Yamaha 192 become another giant-killer? The first boat of this two-boat series that I looked at was the SX190 was the Sport version Now upgraded to the SX192 Since it's rarely prudent to jump aboard and head off, let's take a look at the layout of this newest launch.Last year's introduction of the SX190 marked Yamaha's long-awaited entry into the competitive 19-foot bow rider segment. If that boat was too entry-level for you, check out the new SX192, an upscale version of that same 19-foot-2-inch boat. The 192 marks the first time that Yamaha has put a supercharged engine into a boat, and not just a PWC. No longer rated by the manufacturer, but estimated to churn out between 210 and 230 hp, that 1,812 cc engine powered our test boat onto plane in three seconds, pushed it past the 30 mph mark in 5.3 seconds, and delivered a top speed of 50 mph. It also powered the hull through the tight turns that jets are known for. Go, speed racer, go. That jet-drive engine also delivers an extremely low-profile, direct-drive layout with practical advantages. Without bulky hardware or 90-degree gear linkages to work around, Yamaha was able to forgo a space-sapping sun pad or engine box and instead installed seating directly atop the engine. Look aft and you'll see a wraparound, U-shaped bench spanning the perimeter and taking advantage of every inch of cockpit space. Jet power also gives the transom a noticeably lower profile than stern drive or outboard runabouts can. Step through and you'll find the iconic, two-tier swim platform that Yamaha has made its trademark. Padded backrests make it a great spot to gear up for water sports or just hang out at anchor in your favorite cove. The sole storage hatch is cut almost to the sides of the console, allowing for a wide entry to the compartment itself. The hatch cover is supported by a gas strut, the opening is gasketed all around, and a gutter channels water away from the opening.Like a lot of builders of late, Yamaha notably flares out the bow to create a wider cockpit, sharpening up the looks with edgy prongs vaguely reminiscent of a pickle fork. The choice allows for a bow compartment that tapers from 5 feet 6 inches forward of the consoles to a still-generous 4 feet at the bow. That's adult-size width, although a maximum length of 4 feet may cramp some occupants. Vinyl and carpet throughout are upgraded from the 190, with richer colors and textures, and cup holders get a chrome like trim. Similar upscale enhancements include a vinyl wrap for the glove box and dash, four Polk Audio speakers to complement the Clarion stereo, and an upgraded steering wheel. Here, there are only two gauges, but Yamaha stepped up and added a digital multi-function gauge to the tach which allows you to scroll through a myriad of parameters including gph, time to empty, distance to empty, fuel remaining... etc. Above the sunscreen is a small eyebrow to add shade, but the digital gauge is readable in direct sunlight. (I was happy to see that eyebrow is slightly curved as opposed to high and pointy as I've seen in other Yamahas.) Below and to the left of the standard tilt wheel are rocker switches for the blower and bilge pump with circuit breakers right beside. To the right are switches for the courtesy lights, nav lights, and horn as well as the switch for "no wake" and "cruise" mode. The single engine control is mounted on a 20-degree angle but the shaft is long enough to remain comfortable and easy to use from either the seated position or up on the bolster. The comfortable captain's seat wraps around, has an open back for better ventilation on hot days, it swivels and slides, and has a flip-up bolster. From the seated position, my line of sight was just above the windshield frame, and of course on the bolster, I was looking well above it. It's very unusual for a boat in this size range to have "J" seating, and it's only possible with Yamaha's proprietary low profile engine that eliminates the need for a bulky engine box that takes up so much space. What would be the aft facing observer's seat is not really able to be used while facing aft do to the windshield hitting the back of your head, and a grab handle hitting your lower back. For that reason, the observer will be sitting facing the captain on the 190 and that also has another advantage. Now the observer can more easily glance at the course ahead and see when the boat is about to reach the end of the run and alert the guy or gal on the towline that the boat is about to turn. Under the observer's position is open space that begs for a cooler on a slide-out tray. Enclosed storage is underneath the seats to either side of the engine hatch seat. Snap-in carpeting can be seen all around. I'd like to see the center aft cushion be reversible to a carpeted side so that we have a non-skid entrance to the cockpit from the aft platform. Currently, you're resigned to stepping on the cushions. It's still surprising to see a single engine on a Yamaha sportboat but there it is: A single 1812cc, four-stroke, four-cylinder, High Output, Yamaha marine engine. It's important to note that this is a purpose-built engine, not a marinized car engine, and the fact that it's built by Yamaha means that the company that stands behind your boat also stands behind your engine and drive. The layout of the compartment lends itself to easy maintenance. The dipstick is in the front of the engine and colored yellow for visibility. The oil filter is to the side and the air filter is mounted forward. A white hose runs next to the engine (at right) and its mission is to divert cockpit water out the transom. That's a nice touch, and a nice departure to the practice of simply channeling water into the bilge that I often see in boats in this class. (I have seen enough boats sink at their mooring during a thunderstorm to know that sometimes the battery for the automatic bilge pump will simply run out of juice before the rain stops.)Anyone who is familiar with Yamaha boats will be equally familiar with the award-winning transom seating layout. It's flat-out the coolest spot to hang out and watch the water, or the kids swimming off the stern. With comfortable seat backs, two levels of deck, drink holders, and a partridge in a pear tree, there's little more to want. It's a rare occurrence, but once in awhile you may find that you ran your Yamaha through grass or seaweed. If you should clog your jet pump, then it used to be a chore to shut down, get in the water, and swim under the boat to unclog the port. Yamaha fixed that with a clean-out port that is accessed via a hatch in the upper deck of the transom seating. Once the hatch is opened, an engine cutoff switch engages to cut power to the engine. Then, you simply reach into the pump and pull out the weeds, replace the safety plug, and go on your merry way. Top speed came in at 7400 rpm and was 43.2 mph. At that speed the 192 was burning 11.9 gph while getting 3.65 mpg for a range of 98 miles. Best cruise came in at 6000 rpm and 28.4 mph. Now we were burning only 6.3 gph while getting 4.51 mpg for a range of 122 miles. With the single engine, acceleration was not as fast as the larger twin-engine boats in the Yamaha line, but still faster when compared with other boats in its single-engine class. We reached planing speed in only 3.3 seconds and accelerated through 30 mph in 6.8 seconds. In case you didn't know it, this is fast, folks.Please submit any and ALL offers - your offer may be accepted!
