As for the seating, the Starcraft comes with a swiveling bucket seat complete with bolster, in case you wish to stand.
7. Comes with a Bimini

Sometimes called a bikini top or bimi, some question on whether or not you need one on a deck boat like the SVX 211 OB. The answer is yes, as the sun can get brutal as it beats down on you, and the suns rays reflecting on the water don’t help much. Bimini’s help to cool you and yours down by providing shade, and with the 2020 Starcraft SVX OB you get a nice, good quality one.

Steering your boat just became much easier with the addition of hydraulic steering, and Baystar hydraulic steering comes standard on the 2020 Starcraft SVX 211 OB.

Mechanical steering refers to steering where a cable runs from your boats steering wheel to the outboard, and this means you can’t ever take your hands off the wheel.
