Longevity Review: 2011 Sea Doo 210 SP
Posted 12 November 2011 - 12:22 AM
Cushions - Y = loose, fly out on the freeway, S = hinged, easy access and secure
Ignition - Y = two turn keys, S = 1 key, two push botton start/stops. Turn the key once and enjoy the day.
Bow door - Y = solid door that also acts as a storage compartment. If you pull it across the bow, your storage is open and showing. S = Plexi door seperate from any storage door. Even with it pulled, feels spacious and open.
Bimini - Y = complex and time consuming to open, straps stretch in the wind. S = easy to open and secure with two straps, solid.
Jet Pumps - Y = jet pump clean outs that blow out randomly flooding the boat and engine and are tough to get back in. S = no need for them, grates protect the intakes, this gives more space for the wet storage.
Wet storage - Y = none. S = tons, lockable and strutted so it stays open if need be.
Battery switch - Y = deep in a compartment that you can't open with the bimini down. S = right behind the drivers seat, easy access.
Swim Platform - Y = hard slippery decking, no seats. S = padded cushions, non slip, and fold out jump seats.
Throttle - Y = twin throttles mean you have to sync them yourselves. S = auto engine syncing, no worries, just drive.
Speakers - Y = no bower speakers, distortion. S = bow speakers that take the sound.
Folding bow window - Y = needs to be strapped down. S = magnetic easy use
Seating - Y = fold down access to swim platform. S = magetic removable so you don't need to stand on your nice cushions. Same in the bow.
Bow ladder - Y = none. S = yes.
Trailer - Y = basic. S = LED lighting, removable guide posts if need be.
I could go on and on, but these were some of the key areas. Again, could not be more pleased. I've been trying to think of what I don't like... the only thing I can come up with is the Sea Doo snap cover is a hassle. I'm waiting for poppy covers to get theirs made and will order immediatly. Pretty small complaint that doesn't impact any performance.

I upgraded the swim step with Hydro Turf, they have the template if you want to replace the swim step mat.
I will buddy boat with you to Catalina from Orange County, if you ever want to tow your boat this way.
Also, I just received my Poppy Cover from Teri. I am trying it on this week.

Hello I am new to the site, but am looking seriously at purchasing this model. Can anyone help me regarding the fuel consumption on these units. I have read in the past that jets are horrible on fuel, now this model has a duel jet system, need to ease my mind before purchasing one. How do they compare gallons per hour, verses a stern drive unit? How many hours do you get on a tank of fuel? Otherwise this looks like it is the boat with all the options.
3.45 mpg on the pacific ocean.

I have a 2010 210 SE which came with a round table. The only place I can store it is in the ski locker in the floor. I think the 2011 210's come with an oval table and I could see those possibly fitting in the bow seat back storage area, but I don't know for sure.
