The 190 FSH Series – For the fishing enthusiasts who loves his family and for the Family who loves to fish.
Yamaha SA introduces the 19-foot 190 FSH™ boat series, the first family fishing boat of its kind and the first center console model offered by the #1 selling brand of jet-powered runabouts.
The 190 FSH is designed to offer family friendly amenities for spending an entire day out on the water combined with all the features fishing enthusiast’s desire.
The 190 FSH is available in three variations that include the base model 190 FSH, an upgraded 190 FSH Deluxe, and the flagship 190 FSH Sport that offers many of the features of the Deluxe with the addition of a custom T-top. All three models come with Yamaha’s high-performance 1.8L High Output marine engine.
Deluxe model upgrades include wiring for dual batteries, stainless steel rub-rail, head compartment curtain, upgraded seating/cushions and bow pedestal seat.
190 FSH Walkthrough
The bow of the 190 FSH is large and wide and comes with a pedestal mount and fishing seat on the Deluxe model. Two large storage compartments and a large built in self-draining cooler are just an arm’s length away. A deep, oversized anchor locker completes the bow area.
The 190 FSH cockpit is remarkably roomy for a 19-foot boat and Yamaha makes the most of every inch with a comfortable bench seat that is integrated into the front of the centre console.
The bench seat and front of the centre console lift up to reveal an extra deep, large storage area that can also serve as a changing room or a head compartment thanks to the curtain enclosure that is included on the Deluxe and Sport models.
This compartment can also store equipment and recreational items and offers convenient access to the backside of the helm for easy service and installing aftermarket marine electronics. On the sides of the centre console are six vertical rod holders, three on each side. Four additional rod holders are located under the gunnels on the port and starboard sides. With the addition of four flush mount rod holders on the deck, there are a total of 14 rod holders across the boat.
The helm is thoughtfully designed with a simple to remove windshield for low profile storage, a stainless steel sport steering wheel, easy access to all boat control switches, a locking glove box, and an open area to flush mount electronics such as a fish finder, a GPS unit, and other marine electronics.
Completing the helm is an angled footrest for comfort and stability when underway. Behind the helm is a padded leaning post with a backrest (on Deluxe and Sport). Under the lean post is a dedicated space for a second cooler which is included on all models.
On the port side aft of the helm is more dedicated storage along with easy battery access. On the starboard side is an 18-gallon live well with two pumps — one to fill the live well and a second pump for the recirculation system that is controlled at the helm.
Yamaha’s 190 FSH Series also features a raw water Jet Wash™ wash-down system that utilizes water thrust from the jet drive system to allow boat owners to easily clean their deck without needing an additional pump.
The transom area on the FSH Series is unlike any other centre console boat on the market. Since the engine and drive train are mounted in the hull, the entire back of the boat is open for unobstructed casting, towing and enjoying activities on the back of the boat. On the Deluxe and Sport models, the lean post is convertible and can be flipped back toward the helm for added comfort and versatility.
The 190 FSH features Yamaha’s signature two-tier swim platform that sits low at the water’s edge. A retractable stern ladder makes re-boarding after swimming a breeze. The transom also includes a tow eye for water sports.
Like all Yamaha boats, the 190 FSH features a patented clean out port that allows for the removing of debris from the jet pump without having to get in the water or swim under the boat.
Rounding out the FSH’s list of innovations is the addition of Yamaha’s Articulating Keel, the latest in Yamaha’s Advanced Responsive Handling features. The Articulating Keel is an extension of the boat’s keel that moves and tracks along with the jet pump nozzle to provide comfort, stability and tracking at all speeds.
The FSH Series boats come equipped with all the features the fishing family needs. From bow to stern, you’ll find more usable space, efficient storage and consideration for all your favourite on the water activities.
