The one with the bigger motor...

Both ride nice, but are very different boats.

Vector is like a Deuce coupe. A bit tight, but sexy and fast.
210 is more like a shoebox Chevy. Much bigger (comparatively), but sexy in it's own right, and still fast.

And the only respectable answer is 21' Schiada!

Pay attention, not one of the choices, haha:)

I've had a chance to drive a variety of them, and also ski raced behind both models. The factory set up Vectors with Bravo drives that I have driven have not been much to my liking, but I have driven race set up outdrive versions with more power, as well as V drive versions that were really great.

I would suggest finding a way to drive any that you consider buying.

View attachment 998817 my favorite . I bet it is a blast
I believe that I built the original 572 cu in turbo engine for that when I was building engines for GT Performance. At the time the owner was discussing turbo vs blower, and concerned with "turbo lag", so we met him at Elsinore and showed how the more modern turbo systems didn't exhibit the terrible lag of the early systems.

For ride the 210 will ride better. Both great looking boats. Vectors are old school cool and bitchen, and a 210 closed bow is one sexy looking boat in my opinion but I owned a 210 for 15 plus years.

Ran 210 for a few years, and my current vector all though it’s not your average vector.
Ride characteristics in both of mine were similar
the 210 seemed to get less splash over the bow in 3ft white caps, Or maybe the windscreen deflected it off the driver. Other then that no notable difference

Having been in both the Vector and 210 in open ocean at speed the 210 handles extreme rough water better and rides better but it's not a night and day difference. I like the lines of the Vector better, it's a sexy beast.

Richard Lee used to say he would never want to run a big motor vector. Why he said this he would not say, take the information for what it is worth.

I love me some closed bow 210. I think they look great and i like the extra room and freeboard compared to the vector.

Never driven a vector but a 210 with better tabs will eat up some nasty water.

Schiada river cruiser , vector and the Howard have classic bad ass old school good looks that will never go out of style.
