One of the best things about testing a brand-new boat is that it is always noticeably better than an updated model that is a few years old. Building a new boat allows the manufacturer to make all the changes it wants at once, which typically results in better style, finish, feel and performance.

This is what came to mind while testing Stingray’s brand-new 210LR bowrider, which had a smoothness of operation and responsiveness that was tangible. In fact, we were able to post a blistering speed of 57.4 mph with our 220 hp V-6 MerCruiser stern drive, which is an impressive speed for only 220 hp. This is thanks in part to Stingray’s next-generation patented Z-plane hull, which requires very little trim to air it for our top speed. Stingray also made sure there is enough room in the engine compartment for a V-8, which means you can go as high as 270 hp on this boat — just in case you absolutely need to go 60 mph.

Walk-through transoms are more and more common, and the 210LR follows suit with a removable center cushion and a fold-down backrest that gives you easy access to the integrated swim platform from the cockpit.

Inside the cockpit you get a fair amount of space for a 21-foot, 2-inch boat as well as a pair of bucket seats (flip-up bolster seats are optional) and a full-beam rear bench seat. While many builders miss the opportunity to take advantage of the portside console, Stingray doesn’t miss a beat with access to the stereo, a fiberglass compartment with a sturdy lid (would work great as a small cooler), a utility tray and a cupholder.

If you like the look and size of this bowrider but wish you could get it in a cuddy, fear not. This boat is available with a good-size cuddy with a head, filler cushions for a berth, a small sink and opening portlights.

The Stingray 210LR lists for $29,121 equipped with our 220 hp MerCruiser motor, which puts this boat a notch or two above entry level in terms of price. With respect to performance, style and fun, however, the 210LR is way more than a few points above entry level.
