Go big with the 215 Xi, Tahoe’s largest deck boat that can accommodate a crew of up to 12. We love the sporty exterior look with a splash of black cherry color that flows with the vinyl interior. This is another one of those great all-around boats that the Tracker brand is best known for.
While your first impression has you thinking this is a sporty deck boat, it actually comes standard with some hidden fishing amenities—creating a kind of angler boat in disguise. There are three pedestal seat bases, two in the bow and one in the stern, and when you’re not fishing, the two movable folding chairs store nicely below a seat compartment. There is also an aerated livewell, plus built-in rod storage behind the helm chair, proving you can have a sporty deck boat that satisfies your itch to drop a line on occasion.
The roomy, recessed interior feels like home, with luxurious wraparound lounges, a refreshment center with a freshwater sprayer and a removable table. The molded-in storage compartments are clean and well finished and there is even a drip edge around the perimeter to help keep water from getting in.
At the helm is a very sporty-looking console that is symmetrical with large, easy-to read gauges along with a Ritchie compass directly in the center. The custom-molded dash with simulated burlwood accents ties in well with the black cherry-colored vinyl accents on the otherwise all-white interior. There is also a Lowrance digital depth finder, Blaupunkt Bluetooth-capable stereo, MP3 and USB ports, fill and pump-out livewell control and water-resistant toggle switches. To use the faucet/wash down, the control switch is located at the helm console so if we had to be picky we’d like to see this switch closer to the sink.
Everywhere we looked we seemed to find more great storage options including under the helm as well as the in-floor storage locker that is over seven feet long and 16 inches deep. There is zero wasted space on this Tahoe and that’s what we love to see.
