Today the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s (NMMA) recognized Nautique for excellence in customer satisfaction in the Inboard Watersports Boat category as part of the 2013 Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) program. This is the eighth year in a row Nautique has earned the prestigious CSI award.
The Marine Industry CSI Awards program honors participating manufacturers that actively measure customer satisfaction and pursue continuous improvement to better serve the customer. Nautique achieved and maintained an independently-measured standard of excellence in customer satisfaction over the past year, based on information provided by customers purchasing a new boat during the period between April 1, 2012 and March 31, 2013.
“Customer satisfaction is critical to the success and growth of the recreational boating industry and its CSI award recipients that set the bar on delivering an exceptional customer experience,” notes Robert Newsome, director of engineering standards for NMMA.
“Everyone from our employees to our dealers are dedicated to ensuring our customers receive the best service available from a company that cares,” stated Nautique President/CEO Bill Yeargin. “The NMMA CSI award is recognition for our entire team and we are once again excited to exceed the industry standards,” Yeargin added.
he past few days Nautique has been honored with five major industry awards:
- Members of the Watersports Industry Association (WSIA) selected Nautique as “Manufacturer of the Year.” This is the second consecutive year Nautique has been recognized as the watersports industry’s top manufacturer.
- WSIA members also selected Nautique as the “Buzz Brand of the Year.” This award is given to the brand who is creating the most “buzz” in the industry and Nautique has won it two of the past three years.
- WakeWorld awarded its Riders Choice “Boat of the Year” to the Super Air Nautique G23. Watersports enthusiasts from all over the world voted and selected the G23 as their favorite boat.
- WakeWorld awarded its Riders Choice “Innovation of the Year” to Nautique for the Nautique Surf System (NSS). Again, people worldwide considered the innovations our industry has offered the past year and selected the Nautique Surf System as the best.
- Last, but not least, at this weekend’s Wake Awards Team Nautique rider Mike Dowdy won “Trick of the Year” for a trick performed behind the Super Air Nautique G23.
“The past few days have been incredible with our team winning five major industry awards. Several have stated that winning five major awards over just a few days must certainly be an industry first and everyone at Nautique is thrilled,” stated Nautique President/CEO Bill Yeargin. “It takes an incredible group of people to earn this kind of recognition and I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of our amazing team!” added Yeargin.

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.
Midlands Nautique are excited to announce that we will be providing a Nautique G23 as the pulling power behind this years National Boat Championships which is to be held at Quayside Wake and Ski on 6th & 7th July.
The G23 has been chosen for its game changing wakes, which has been proven as the best wake in the industry in every major tournament around the world.
Come and see the UK’s top riders battle it out on the water to become the 2013 National Champion in 16 divisions.
Peter Gill chairman of Wakeboard Uk said “that this years wakeboard nationals will be the biggest and best yet, with some major sponsors being involved”.

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.
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 Nautique Surf System creates a fully customizable surf wave at the press of a button. This completely new and innovative way of shaping the wave will make any wakesurfer’s experience more enjoyable than ever.
The WAVEPLATE is an integrated design that when deployed extends outward and down from the transom intercepting and redirecting the flow of water to clean up the wake and form a surf wave unlike anything offered in our industry. This not only allows the ability to form a wave on either side instantly, but also allows for wave customization with variable intensity settings that adjust wave steepness and shape by controlling exactly how much the plate is engaged.
Integrated into the Nautique LINC System, users have the ability to customize their settings instantly and save them in personalized profiles that store and automatically engage your preferred speed, ballast settings, and WAVEPLATE position.
“The all-new Nautique Surf System with WAVEPLATE technology is just another example of the progression and forward thinking at Nautique,” stated Nautique CEO Bill Yeargin. “Last year our industry voted Nautique as having the industry’s Most Innovative Product and the NSS provides yet another innovative design by Nautique. It will change the sport of wakesurfing,” Yeargin added.
Midlands Nautique are exhibiting at The Tullett Prebon – London International Boat Show which will be held between 12th-20th January 2013, at the Excel Exhibition Centre, London Docklands,
This year Midlands Nautique have been chosen by Nautique Boats USA to welcome you aboard the 2013 Nautique line up.

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.
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!
When you test drive a Nautique, you will quickly discover why Nautique owners are the most satisfied boat owners out there.

We are always looking out for talented young riders who are making their name in the wakeboarding world, for a while we have been following the growing talent of a fantastic young wakeboarder, Jorge Gill.
Jorge, who is currently riding in Orlando, Florida recently competed at the 2012 Nautique Wake Games, our guys from the Nautique factory watched as this young British wakeboarder proved his worth behind the phenomenal wake of the G23.
Jorge certainly had the Nautique guys talking and we are now happy to announce that Nautique in association with Midlands Nautique will be sponsoring Jorge for the 2012 season.
Knowing Jorge and his parents personally we have every belief that Jorge will do well in whatever he does, its an added delight to be able to help such a keen and genuinely nice guy who’s love for the sport and fantastic attitude towards it can be clearly seen.
With the continued encouragement and support from all his sponsors Jorge certainly has the talent, potential and backing to do great things. Jorge really does deserve all the support he can get and we are extremely happy to be apart of that.
Jorge has his own page on Facebook where his riding can be followed: http://www.facebook.com/jorgegill
You can also follow Jorge on Twitter:http://www.twitter.com/jorge_gill
For the first time ever, anywhere in the world in a wakeboarding competition, a wake-to-wake 1080 was landed at the Nautique Wake Games this past weekend in Orlando, Florida. This never before achieved feat was made possible by the revolutionary wake of the new Super Air Nautique G23. Then, as if to prove it was not a fluke, a second wakeboarder landed the same trick again. From never happening before to happening twice in one day in the Super Air Nautique G23’s debut.
The Nautique Wake Games showcased the revolutionary wake of the Super Air Nautique G23 with the best wakeboard athletes in the world competing. Harley Clifford (Australia) was the first wakeboarder to land a wake-to-wake 1080 followed by Oli Derome (Canada) who went out and stuck the second 1080 after Clifford. Fans went wild as they lined the shore and watched history go down behind the G23.
“It was amazing to watch history being made when two incredible athletes landed back-to-back 1080’s behind the revolutionary Super Air Nautique G23 this past weekend. This had never happened before so to see it happen twice in one day was amazing,” stated Nautique CEO Bill Yeargin. “Only Nautique could produce a game-changing wake boat that has immediately redefined the industry standard,” Yeargin added
In early March our Nautique team began rolling out the launch plan for the unveiling of the boat the world has now seen, our revolutionary new Super Air Nautique G23!
When we started executing the launch plan people in our industry almost immediately began asking me if I thought we were building up expectations to an unreachable level. I was reminded many times that we were making a big gamble if we could not deliver on the lofty claims of wakeboard athletes like Shaun Murray who were using words like “game changer” to describe our new G23.
The hype built all through March and by the time we held our unveiling of the new G23, tens of thousands of people had shown interest in the new boat through our website, discussion boards, Facebook and other social media outlets. A big crowd showed up for the unveiling causing us to run out of both parking and room for everyone in the building. Both the webcast, which was well planned, and our Nautique website blew up because such a huge number of people were trying to access it at once. The world wanted to learn about this new Nautique!
Well now the world has seen what we kept for a secret for so long. People have had a chance to experience what we believed would be changing our industry, the all-new Super Air Nautique G23.
The comments have been unbelievable and confirmed exactly what we knew, the boat is amazing. Person after person who has been on the water with the boat has told me how their expectations have not only been met, but have been exceeded! One respected industry leader (and great wakeboarder) rode behind the boat with stock ballast and told me he would be scared to put extra ballast in the boat. In just the first few days since the boat has been introduced two long-time pro wakeboarders, Jeff McKee and JD Webb, have already landed new tricks they have never before been able to land.
The hype was big but if you ask anyone who has experienced the boat – expectations have been met and exceeded! In fact, want an outside opinion? Check out Transworld Wakeboarding Magazine’s review of the G23 atwakeboardingmag.com.
We have already built several of the Super Air Nautique G23’s and full production starts May 1. You will see this new boat on the water this summer!
