The Sea Ray 21 SPX is the embodiment of pure adrenaline. Great looks and loads of seating combine with a 250-horsepower Mercury engine and smooth, easy handling to ensure your day is a blast and a half.
Stretching 21 feet, six inches in overall length and with a generous eight-foot-six beam, the SPX 210 is rated to accommodate up to a dozen passengers on its near wrap-around seating. The bow is usually the weak point in any boat of this size, but sharp-eyed buyers will notice Sea Ray wisely chose to maintain the full width of this boat very far forward – well past the windshield, in fact – in order to bring much more usable space to this often-neglected end of the boat. The result is two full-length forward-facing loungers where passengers can put their feet up and stretch out under the sun, along with a rear-facing seat that offers almost as much luxury. The two forward-facing seats are the place to be when this boat is underway, and you can guarantee the kids will fight for these spots right from the get-go. Side shoulder coaming, comfortably placed grab handles and a pair of stereo speakers only add to the allure. Of course you don’t have to stretch out in the bow. This space is more than roomy enough to accommodate four adults if you just want to sit and chat. There’s storage space under the seat cushions, and conveniently-placed beverage holders to keep those cold drinks always within easy reach.
Pass aft between the tall, walk-through windshield and the main cabin also has its share of tricks. The convertible port-side lounge seat allows forward-facing or rear-facing seating, or both simultaneously to really kick up the boat’s versatility. There’s a near full-width, L-shaped seat that runs across the transom and forward on the starboard side, plus a small corner seat to port just ahead of the standard transom pass-through. Behind the transom bench seat is a large, super-comfy sun pad.
The amount of storage space in the Sea Ray SPX 210 is impressive, and greatly contributes to this boat’s ability to do so many different things well. The passenger console features a huge glove box accessed through the top surface, offering secure but convenient space for phones, wallets, keys and more. It also houses the control head for the stereo. Look down, and between the consoles there’s even a ski locker in the cockpit floor.
Nicely designed, nicely made and styled for today’s boater, the Sea Ray SPX 210 is a versatile family runabout that does a lot of things really, really well. It’s an easy boat to like, and a great value for boaters who want to do it all.
This is a very well maintained example and sits on a twin axle SBS launching trailer.
