If you’re looking for the largest performance version of our 2022 Boat of the Year, you’ll find it in the Switch 21 Sport. It has all of the features that made us fall in love with the Switch concept, paired with a 230 hp Rotax engine. Like all Switch models, the 21 Sport features a handlebar steering system at the helm that helps this tri-toon steer like its PWC relatives, with super-responsive handling and Sea-Doo’s iBR system for close-quarters operation.
The Switch 21 Sport is ideally suited to tow sports, with features such as a driver’s seat flip-up bolster, a rearview mirror, an inflatable holder, and a programmable ski mode at the helm. Capable of holding a crew of 10, the Switch 21 Sport also has backrest modules with cup holders for the bow area that will surely be popular. The beauty is they can move.
One advantage that the 21 Sport has over traditional boats is its Rotax engine powers a jet, so there’s no prop to worry about when tubers, skiers and boarders are getting in and out of the boat at the stern.
Although the 21 Sport is a pontoon, you won’t find any aluminum tubes or panels on the boat. Instead, its hull is made from PolyTec, Sea-Doo’s proven durable, lightweight blend of polypropylene and fiberglass reinforcement. Rather than aluminum perimeter fencing, the Switch has clear vinyl panels that give the boat an open, airy feel and allow the captain to have a great view of the dock or a downed watersports rider in the water.
The Switch’s floor plan is the lineup’s bread and butter, and the 21 Sport takes full advantage of its modular system. There’s no other pontoon boat we know of with this much layout flexibility—and it can change any time you want. By using a unique set of tiles for the deck surface, owners can move furniture almost anywhere they desire, setting up the boat for a tow session, cruising, or lounging at anchor. It can be switched at any time. Multiple accessories can be added to the layout, from corner and pedestal tables to various storage boxes, coolers and even fuel caddies. It truly is one of the most versatile boats we’ve seen on the water—and it’s a lot of fun.
- Jet power gives the Switch 21 Sport a shallower draft than comparable outboard or sterndrive pontoons.
- Modular decking system lets you configure seating and amenities to your liking, and you can change them around on every trip.
- iBR (intelligent brake and reverse) system makes handling the boat in close quarters much easier and safer.
- Clear side panels give the boat an open and airy feel, and help improve the captain’s vision from the helm.
