Nautique Builds 200,000th Towboat & Introduces New Model

Nautiques by Correct Craft, Orlando, FL, recently announced the manufacturing of its 200,000th boat model.

The Crossover Nautique 226 was the commemorative model and is just one of five entries in this series ranging from 20 feet, nine inches to a little more than 23 feet.

“The entire Nautique team is thrilled to be celebrating the production of our 200,000 boat,” said Correct Craft president and CEO Bill Yeargin. “We appreciate our entire dealer network and employees for taking care of 200,000 customers.”

The company also announced the launch its new Ski Nautique 200, a three-event tournament ski boat available in an open or closed bow (the 200 – Open Bow and the 200 – Closed Bow).

Both models incorporate the same hull that's designed to ride high on the water for optimum handling and provide soft, passable wakes, offering minimal trough for smoother exits. According to Nautique the 200 is also ideal for trick skiers as it creates a clean, smooth table and a defined, single peak wake allows skiers to easily feel the top.

Ample storage space along with an all-new lower instrument panel, Zero-Off speed control system and the company's exclusive Nautique LINC System – a digital helm display – are other features.

The Ski Nautique 200 will debut for the world market at the 2009 World Water Ski Championships in Calgary, AB, August 3 to 9.
