Yamaha’s 19-foot FSH Series of center console jet boats also see a complete overhaul with a new hull and deck, and the addition of several new features and technology to meet the needs of customers living in coastal and select interior states.
The bow has been reimagined to include storage compartments that are larger, and open wider than before. To help keep tackle and other essentials organized, Plano® tackle trays are integrated into the new portside mini-pod storage compartment, and on the starboard side, the mini pod opens into a huge storage area. These padded mini pods also serve as convenient ingress and egress points.
With the addition of four flush mount rod holders on the deck, there are a total of 14-rod holders across the boat. The Sport version adds four more rocket launcher rod holders on the t-top.
Also included is Yamaha’s 4.3” touchscreen Connext® control system featuring a brand new user interface in 2019, and conveniently-placed rocker switches for Yamaha’s No Wake Mode™ and Cruise Assist, along with the bilge, horn, and other vital functions.
A new design feature that makes the deck layout more usable are removable backrests for the port and starboard jump seats. These backrests can be quickly and easily stowed away, opening access to the stern. In addition, the livewell is larger and relocated forward for easier access from more areas of the boat.
The transom area on the 190 FSH is unlike any other center console boat on the market. Since the engine and drive train are mounted within the hull, the entire back of the boat is open for unobstructed casting, towing and enjoying activities on the back of the boat.
“This new 19-foot platform is a game changer for this size of boat and offers the feel and space of a much larger boat,” said Mike Ricciardi, Yamaha’s product planning manager. “We rethought the design from the ground up and matched our concepts with customer research into how they use our boats to create the most functional and efficient design we’ve yet to offer in this segment.”
