    Yeah its way different for sure. It looks like a big step forward which will drive a lot of sales.

    Impressive, lots of thought went into to it. I like the pursuit to fill in the trough, that is a big deal. Looks like it will make everything we do in the boat a little easier. I think I might buy a little stock in Seadek. No open bow apparently.

    The wake looks good. Different....looks maybe wider, but softer. You can see the effects of the micro tuners in the video. I'm sure the wake is nice. A wake so nice you'll want a ballast for trick.....

    Some other nice new features..... open side window design with integrated bimini, access to drain plug, split back seat. Sounds like a Mastercraft.

    Not sold on the looks and the price of 130K (if true) seems crazy, but I gotta say Nautique definitely upped the ante and I'm glad that they are obviously showing a commitment to water skiing. Really looking forward to skiing behind it.

    Interesting stealth fighter look with all the angles on the hull. The one they show doesn't look bad, but maybe they need to build an all flat black version.

    Spec out either the MC or the Bu with a 6.2 and the MSRPs aren’t too far off...
  • TeddyTeddy Posts: 25 Baller
    A lot of thought and innovation went into the redesign. There is much to like. I think they raised the bar.

    Looks cool...spent some money on that design for sure. Some cool features, forward thinking.

    Closed bow only again?
  • OSUwaterskierOSUwaterskier Posts: 69 Baller
    Hmmm video says they offer the full engine line - figured they were only offering 6.2 based on picture above. Welp at least it’s not $130!

    Nothing better than a Nautique in my book, but I can't help but be reminded of the stealth bomber with the new styling.

    The wake and tracking are what matters, and it looks like CC has done their work
  • Pat MPat M Posts: 566 Crazy Baller
    @ScottScott I heard a rumor that trickers love the wake.
  • dislanddisland Posts: 1,176 Crazy Baller
    I wonder how that new trick ballast tank will stay within the rules

    Rules may have to change on the ballast - similarly to what they did for weight in the Mastercraft. Hydrogate rule may need to be changed too.

    Absolutely "LOVE" what they have done. Plus you can't pick it up on Radar !!

    Well, the wakes look great, but to my eye the boat is ugly!

    It's a Gski, as long as it gives a great ride and drives as good or better then the 200. I can warm up to the styling.

    I just don't think they did themselves any favors showing it in that sparkle blue...I would reserve judgement on the looks until they get a more neutral color in the water
  • ObrienslalomObrienslalom Posts: 54 Baller
    Adding wake to flatten it out? Brilliant.

    I hear in 2020 they are going to make the wake 40ft wide so you never have to cross them.

    pn has some good pics of other colors. The purple is pretty wild. It looks cool from some angles, it's just that bow is too GS.

    Okay, i take back my No i said. Always wondered if they would find a way of taking care of the dip behind the boat, not that i ski that short yet but have free styled and could feel it. Will this be a game changer for a new record?
  • swc5150swc5150 Posts: 1,979 ★★★Triple Panda Award Recipient ★★★

    I like that the bimini rests on the gunwales and not the engine box.

    It seems silly to me that they would make such a large bow , but not offer it open .
  • dislanddisland Posts: 1,176 Crazy Baller
    Didnt see anything about availability of a non-carbon version

    Some innovative ideas in there for sure! Could get another 200 lbs off the thing if they'd remove all those damn decals around the throttle they're so enamored with. :)
