Freedom of movement. Anglers need it when they have a fish on, and the Lowe SF212 Walk Thru provides it. Yes, it has seating for up to its maximum 10 people (though a couple of those passengers better be children) on two aft sofas, twin captain’s chairs and two pedestal fishing chairs in the bow, but the center walkway is unobstructed from swim platform to bow, so a fish-fighter has room to roam. A stowable table sets up easily between the aft sofas, for those times when fishing isn’t the primary activity.
Other fishing-centric features include trolling motor options from MotorGuide and fishfinder options from Lowrance, a 13-gallon aerated livewell forward of the console and aft of the starboard fishing chair, Traxstech options (for configurable rod holders), and a console to starboard that can hold upright rods and other equipment and serve as a prep station with the lid closed.
When it’s time for watersports or swimming, the full swim platform — made possible by an all-aluminum motor pod at the transom — serves as a place to boot up or relax. An integrated boarding ladder ensures everyone can get back aboard easily.
The 21-foot, 4-inch double-tube pontoon has abundant storage, under both aft sofas and in a console next to the portside fishing chair, and a 9-foot Bimini can throw plenty of shade. An optional ski tow and engine options from 25 to 115 hp (150 hp with the TL Package that includes a middle tube) mean towed fun is definitely in the picture, as top speed with a Mercury 115 FourStroke was 29 mph in company testing.
