The wait is over the G21 is here

Nautique is thrilled to launch the Super Air Nautique G21 featuring the same groundbreaking G-Series hull design that has taken the wake world by storm.

After dominating the market, awards, tournaments, market surveys, and every other way the past year with the Super Air Nautique G23 and G25, customers all over the world have been asking Nautique to build a 21 foot version of the now coveted G-Series boats. Based on those requests, Nautique is thrilled to introduce the new G21.

 

The G21 has many of the same features as its 23 and 25 foot sisters. And more importantly, it has the amazing G-Series wake. The industry is already raving about this new boat:

 

“With the G-Series boats, Nautique has changed the landscape of the entire watersports industry.  It’s no wonder that Nautique has been voted Manufacturer of the Year for the past two years by their peers,” stated Performance Ski & Surf owner Bill Porter.

 

“I have had the opportunity to ride behind the new Super Air Nautique G21… There is not a wake in our industry close to the G-Series,” commented professional wakeboarder Shuan Murray.

 

“Being tasked to find tow boats for the Hyperlite sales force, I only had one goal; get our guys the “Gold Standard” of boats, get them a G-Series by Nautique. I’ve been anxiously waiting what’s upon us now, the G21. Congratulations Nautique, innovation continued,” stated Hyperlite’s vice president of marketing Greg Nelson.

 

“Wow, Nautique has hit it out of the park again… It is amazing what they are doing with their new boats and particularly this new G21,” commented professional wakeboarder Mike Dowdy.

 

“Our customers have been asking for a 21 foot version of the G-Series and Nautique has delivered. The G21 is going to be unstoppable in my area,” stated N3 Boatworks owner Mark Dougherty.

 

“The Nautique team is excited to launch the all-new Super Air Nautique G21 as part of the incredibly successful G-Series. Wakeboarders around the world who have been asking for it, and we are happy to deliver,” stated Nautique CEO Bill Yeargin. “Our incredible team has done an amazing job revolutionizing the industry with both the award winning G23 and the G25. The Super Air Nautique G21 will build on Nautique’s industry leading reputation – no one else is close!” Yeargin added.

NATE SMITH BREAKS THE MEN’S SLALOM WORLD RECORD BEHIND THE SKI NAUTIQUE 200

Team Nautique skier, Nate Smith, set a new Slalom World Record at 2.5@43-off behind the world record setting Ski Nautique 200 this past weekend. The record was set at a tournament held at the Ski Ranch in Covington, Louisiana and is pending approval from the International Waterski and Wakeboard Federation (IWWF).

Prior to this tournament Smith was the co-holder of the world record along with Team Nautique skier Chris Parrish. Smith went all out on Saturday during the second qualifying round to set the 14th World Record behind the Ski Nautique 200 since its inception in 2010!

“The first couple sets I felt really good and got dialed in behind the Ski Nautique 200. During the second round I ran 41-off, started on 43 with a great start to ball 1, then 2 and got to 3 still standing. It was amazing, and the Ski Nautique 200 played a huge role in this accomplishment from always having a consistent pull whether I’m practicing or competing allowing me to go out and set a pending World Record!” commented Team Nautique athlete, Nate Smith.

“The entire Nautique family is incredibly happy for Nate and thrilled by this new world record behind the Ski Nautique 200!” stated Nautique President/CEO Bill Yeargin. “Since the creation of the Ski Nautique 200, on a nearly daily basis I hear from customers all around the world telling me about not only personal bests being achieved but also regional, national and world records all continuing to fall behind this amazing boat,” Yeargin added.

2013 WAKEBOARD & WAKESKATE NATIONALS WAS A “SOARING” SUCCESS

UK wakeboarding was truly transfixed on the Quayside wakeboard and waterski lake in Mytchett as the UK’s top boat wakeboarders battled it out for the title of National champion.

The G23 proved to provide a Wake to be proud of for all riders competing in this years competition. We were proud to have the opportunity to showcase this game changing boat at such a prestigious event. Riders were heard to be commenting on how awesome the wake was and were quite literally buzzing on and off the water.

The feedback that we received was fantastic from both riders taking advantage of the huge wake and from the crowd watching the eye catching G23 pulling all class and age of riders.

Peter Gill, chairman of Wakeboard UK, was the first to congratulate all the riders emphasising that the 2013 Wakeboard Nationals has produced a world-class display of riding that we in the UK can be truly proud of.

Every final was as hotly contested as the next and left those congregated at Quayside mesmerized at the amplitude and execution of riding. In Open Men Sam Carne triumphed despite acknowledging that the youngest rider in the final, Jorge Gill had given him a run for his money being the only rider to stomp a Mobe 5 in the competition. It was however Sam’s flawless action packed two passes which allowed him to be crowned National champion and stamp his authority with one eye on next weekend.

We would like to personally thank all that were involved in making the weekend such an awesome success, sponsors, riders and of course all of the crowd involved in supporting the riders during the 3 day event.

Why buy a Nautique over the competition

So, as you consider a boat for this coming summer, we know you have choices. We also know that for you to buy a Nautique we have to earn your trust and business. So, let me give you a few reasons why you should buy a Nautique!

  • Innovation – There is a reason why last year our industry voted Nautique as having the most innovative product. It is the same reason competitive boat owners are switching to Nautique. When it comes to innovation, no one is close. Nautique’s team lives the life of our customers and we know what people want in their boats – and we deliver!
  • Superior Product – Like to ski? Our Ski Nautique 200 has pulled over a dozen world records in its short existence – no other boat is close. Love to wakeboard? The industry has spoken and the new Nautique G-Series clearly provides the best wake available – no other boat is close. Love to wakesurf? The patent pending Nautique Surf System (NSS) is integrated into the hull design and provides an adjustable open-faced surf wake that transitions from side to side faster than anyone’s – no other boat is close. If you are looking for the best experience on the water – no other boat is close!
  • Quality – You have to experience a Nautique yourself to really appreciate the quality. Or you may be interested in what others have said. For 7 years in a row, JD Power conducted an independent survey of what boat owners thought of their boat’s quality and every year they did the survey, the winner was Nautique. That is not us speaking; those are real customers who have purchased our boats.
  • Performance – There is a reason why our dealers and independent market research tells us that if people test drive a Nautique, they will buy it. Nautique provides the best on water experience – no other boat is close! Do yourself a big favor – don’t buy another boat without driving a Nautique!
  • The Pro’s Want Them – People who are the best in the world at waterskiing, wakeboarding, wakeskating and wakesurfing choose Nautique. They could own any boat they want but they choose the boat that helps them to perform at their best. Those who know, choose Nautique.
  • Customer Satisfaction – Nautique and our amazing dealers are truly committed to doing whatever it takes to make you happy. That is why Nautique has the highest brand loyalty and the highest repurchase rate in the industry.
  • Independent Opinions – There is a reason Nautique wins every major award in our industry, year after year. There is a reason why last year our industry voted Nautique “Manufacturer of the Year.” There is a reason why our industry voted that we have the “Most Innovative Product.” Take a close look at our company and you to will see why we are different.
  • Nautique Cares – We are not your normal company. Not only do we go to great lengths to ensure our customers are happy, but we also go to great lengths, year after year, to make the world better. Last month our team was building homes with Habitat for Humanity in Central Florida. This coming July we will be going on two trips to the Dominican Republic to serve the less fortunate there. In October some of our Nautique team will be in India working in orphanages for girls. Truly, Nautique Cares.

Matt Crowhurst joins the Nautique team

2013 will see two of the biggest names in UK Wakeboarding coming together, helping to push the sport harder than ever before. Matt Crowhurst will join the Nautique team courtesy of the Midland and Scotland Nautique crew. With all the branding trimmings that come as standard with any sponsorship Matt will also be resident Pro coach at Loch Lomond Wakeboard school for a number of days in the year as well as hitting up the Midlands Nautique wakeboard fraternity for several pro clinics throughout the season. Having been involved with the sport for so long Matt appreciates the worth of being on board with one of the biggest brands in Wakeboarding. “You don’t get by bigger than Nautique and quite apart from having the opportunity to ride the awesome G23 all year, getting to work with Midlands and Scotland Nautique crew who support the sport so well in the UK is a complete privilege.

You’ll be able to catch Matt at the first big wake event of the year at the Nautique open weekend, Cannock Chase

And watch this space for more demos with Matt and the first G23 in Europe coming to waterways near you.

The Game Changer G23 Nautique as arrived !!!

Its been a long time coming but now the G23 is here, it does not disappoint. This G23 looks awesome and looks truly stunning.

The boat has been specced with every extra going, from the PCM 6.0 l 450 hp engine to heated seats.

The G23 has been given excellent reviews from all the top wake boarders in fact  it has been given the best reviews for any wake board boat in history.

When Nautique used the G23 at the wake games in the double-up contest and expression contest a handful of the top men’s riders took advantage of the G23’s massive wake to launch some of the biggest airs ever seen. In a first ever for the sport of wakeboarding, both Oli Derome and Harley Clifford landed wake-to-wake 1080′s in the expression session. To reward their historical performance, Nautique is giving both Derome and Clifford cheques for $5,000.

Nautique’s newest high end wakeboard machine, the G23, has given the sport a boost in much the same way that the Ski Nautique 200 did for skiing when it was introduced in 2010. The magic starts with a world class hull design and 2,800 pounds of stock ballast that carves out a super clean balanced wake expanding the possibilities of what can be done on a wakeboard.

There’s no need to add additional ballast to this boat it’s pro level right out of the box. Inside the extremely deep 23-foot-long, 102-inch wide vessel, attention to detail is evident everywhere you look. The helm is perfectly set up for the driver, with a low profile asymmetrical dash design that features Nautique’s stunning LINC 2.0 Digital Helm System, which allows for intuitive control of all the boat’s functions.

If you would like to view the G23 at our showroom please contact us or if you do not have time before Christmas please call to book a private tour of this amazing boat with one of our sales staffs or Shaun Murray when it goes on display at the Tullett Prebon London boat show which runs from the 12th to the 20th January 2013.

SAN G23 Overhead action 3

The G23 six months later in the words of CEO of Nautique BIll Yeargin

Last March Nautique created more buzz in our industry than anyone can ever recall with the introduction of a boat wakeboard legend Shaun Murray called a “game changer;” the Super Air Nautique G23. Our “Reveal” party was packed and so many people tried to watch online that it crashed both the webcast and our Nautique website. It was definitely one of the most exciting nights in the history of our industry.

Interestingly, I had some well-intended friends ask me if we were making a mistake creating so much hype over a boat introduction. They sincerely said that we were creating a pretty high set of expectations related to the boat and it would be hard to deliver on those expectations.

So, six months later, what has happened?

Well, we started with the Nautique Wake Games held here in Orlando just two weeks after the G23 introduction. It was the first time the boat would be seen on the water and it was pulling one of the industry’s most exciting events. No pressure, huh? Well, the Wake Games ended up being historic with the landing of the first ever wake-to-wake 1080 in competition. In all the great wakeboard competitions over the past couple decades it was that first time that happened and it was behind the G23. Then, it happened again; a second wake-to-wake 1080! What had never happened before happened twice in the same day. The Super Air Nautique G23 was off to an amazing start!

After the Nautique Wake games we were able to get some G23’s around for people to ride as part of our Proving Grounds Tour. As the Super Air Nautique G23’s traveled around the country people were amazed. At stop after stop people were lining up to experience this boat that was truly a game changer. Our team could not be happier with the response of so many people who have ridden in or behind the G23 and have loved it, many placing orders for their own!

The Super Air Nautique was validated in competition, it was validated by wakeboarders everywhere and finally it was validated by our industry. Earlier this month members of our industry voted the Nautique G23 as the industry’s “Most Innovative Product.”

So, was the hype too big? Nope, in fact, it may not have been big enough. This boat is truly amazing!

The world’s best wake boat; the world’s best ski boat; and a company that cares!

Enjoy the Nautique life!

The Ryan and Tony 2012 Big Air competition
