Although she comes in a pretty little 19-foot package, Yamaha’s AR192 motorboat goes far beyond just being easy on the eyes. The 1,812-cc supercharged 1.8-litre Yamaha marine engine is a fine piece of machinery that offers remarkable power. This boat is all new for 2013 and is also a nice option for families, whether they are relatively new to water sports or are looking for a great new motorboat. A built-in locker provides convenient storage for wakeboards or other accessories while a fold-down wakeboard tower can also contribute to a fun day out on the water.

The AR192 is lighter than most others in its class, but the spacious layout makes the boat feel larger than its 19 feet. Pricing includes a painted trailer package that can be easily accommodated in a standard garage. Colour options include black (as shown) or red with black accents. Yamaha has carefully designed an attractive yet effective hull, and has maximized the design for optimal space use. A number of other thoughtful additions, such as pop-out cleats and snap-in carpet, contribute to the overall style of the boat.

The Yamaha AR192 has proven to be simple to manoeuvre into dock as well as easy to manage in skinny water. All this combines well with its good looks and speed to make it an attractive boat, especially with its reasonable pricing. Overall, the AR192 offers a pretty sleek ride with incredible horsepower that can keep summer days all that they were meant to be.
