The Powerboat and RIB boating magazine published the test of Yamarin 88 DC in the latest issue, number 173.
In the test article Greg Copp reports on a versatile sports boat that is as tough as it is stylish and comes with a number of powerful engine options.
Here are some quotes from the article:
”In terms of handling, the Yamarin is very sure-footed. Hard turns will not produce any hull slip, and the wide beam provides great stability.”
”Combined with a typically sturdy Scandinavian hull, there were no complaints when running through the sharp wake of a fishing boat at 35 knots.”
”In terms of handling, the Yamarin is very sure-footed. Hard turns will not produce any hull slip, and the wide beam provides great stability with limited heel – ideal for water sports. Consequently, you could have expected a hard ride when hitting sharp ridges of water at speed, but this was not the case.”
”I can honestly say I have yet to see this level of on-screen information in a 29ft boat.”
The end conclusion was: ”Whichever model (standard or premium), the Yamarin 88 DC will stack up well against its competitors, in more than just price. Its open sport boat looks, great performance and rock-solid Yamaha reliability will inevitably create a strong fan base.”
