looking into buying a 97 Nautique. Good condition, perfect pass, heat etc... Anyone know of someone selling one or close to that year (newer preferably)

    97 - 2001 are the same haul. So look for any of those years.

    There is a very well maintained 99 on SIA - http://www.ski-it-again.com/php/skiitagain.php?topic=Search&category=Comp_Boat&postid=21186.

    I know the owner - very meticulous.

    2000 and 2001 had the funky attempt at a trunk. most people that own those years dont even know that their back seat will open up.

    My 2000 doesn't have the trunk, which is nice. Then again it also has the 97-99 graphics as well so it's pretty unique.

    Joel if it is a 2000 you might be one of those that dont realize your back seat will slide up.

    I've got a fuel tank there and my back seat bottom comes out entirely. I'm special I guess.

    @jhughes and @jodyseal I've also got a trunkless 2000. My entire seat is out and all that's there is an upholstered panel and behind that is the gas tank.

    any pics of how that back seat comes up? I use a 2000 (red N like in the brochure) through the summer and I'm sure the owners have no idea......

    The bottom of the seat slides out but the back will go up and is supported on gas shocks. The vinyl on mine sticks and I have to seperate it some times. It's really good for nothing and a pain to pull up. Doesn't surprise me to know that people don't know that it's there.

    If the trunk is there, where is the gas tank and is the tank smaller then my 97 ? Interesting.

    my 2001 has the rear trunk though I wasn't aware of it until I called @krlee and asked where the shower hose was- It was behind the seat. otherwise I would have no idea it was there. I keep the hose as well as spare rope and handle back there and that's it.

    @wish I believe it's the bottom of the seat, making the seat bottom permanent. Rudder access has to be a real PITA.
