Nautique G 21
 
Here are a few pics. Nautique reps saying that it will surf like the 2014 210, and have a killer wakeboard wake.

starting price $108,000

Great looking boat!!

kalamalka 11-15-2013 02:02 PM

sorry, $110,000. Rumor is that the 110k doesn't include NSS??

98 Saleen Cobra 11-15-2013 02:31 PM

Is it just me or does that boat seem to have a insane amount of freeboard?!

JRW160 11-15-2013 03:15 PM

That thing looks awesome

willyt 11-15-2013 03:20 PM

I'd like to get under that thing....







i'd also like to look at the underside of the hull... looks much different than a G23 as there appears to be some lifting strakes on the bow whereas the G23 doesnt have those.

Jerseydave 11-15-2013 04:21 PM

Wow, heavy 21 footer......5200 lbs. Plus 2850 lb max factory ballast = 8050 lbs! (not counting fuel and passengers) No wonder the wake is big/steep.

Looks sweet though.

agreed .......that thing is a brick......wake looks nice.

i like the additional freeboard.

MC25 11-15-2013 04:33 PM

Like it about 10000x better than the g23.

Eagle 11-15-2013 04:43 PM

At 21'6" length and 102" width, it's the same basic dimensions as the X-25. It's a lot heavier though, 5200 lbs vs 4570. Surprisingly, the draft is only 25" vs. 28" for the X-25.

I'd love to ride behind that wake.

Am I missing something? I really like it, but it looks like it is just a mini G23 to me. Wakes look great, but the wakeboard wake looks really wide, and not as steep, compared to the G23. Might just be the angle though. I am a fan of the g23, so I am not surprised that I like this boat.

nickespi 11-15-2013 04:49 PM

Not too sure, but the interior looks insanely cheap. Maybe it's just the color combos or because I'm spoiled having had my interior done by Viper.

I really like that NauTEAK flooring SeaDek does for them. It's an option, you can still get removable carpet. I like the colors on the seats, and all the detail, but to each their own for sure. I prefer Nautiques overall, but that doesn't mean I'm not happy with my old Star, I love it. The finish of the Nautiques appeals to me more.

Funny, i was just thinking that I really dislike the look of that material. Makes it look cheap, IMO.

The rest of the boat looks good though.

MattsCraft 11-15-2013 06:49 PM

Not a fan - Interior looks Robo Boxed to me and small.

MC interior for me anyway is lush an inviting with the curves etc.

Don't get the graphics either, for me feels like WWII military, not saying anything bad about WWII vets:D My dad was one, proud of him and everyone that serves, but I think MC boats have better lines, heck yeah, I own one, lol.

The flooring is pretty cool though, I would be curious to spend a day on one to see how they perform.

Eagle 11-15-2013 07:00 PM

Here's the introduction video from Nautique http://www.planetnautique.com/CorrectCraftManuals/G21/LV.mp4

Seems a lot of the newer nauty girl G's are going that way.

Nice looking boat for sure.

TOO-TALL 11-15-2013 07:39 PM

That thing is sweet!!!

CantRepeat 11-15-2013 08:17 PM

WOW!!!

Is that an automatic fire extinguisher system/bottle in the engine compartment?

Did coast guard change the rules on that?

Tristarboarder 11-15-2013 11:37 PM

Just my opinion, probably most don't agree, but I think it is UGLY as h%LL. Purple, with red accents and faux brown? No bueno. I know they are great machines, great watercraft, but too futuristic with the chiseled lines. Give me a '14 X2 instead.....or a x25

AlbertaSurfer 11-16-2013 01:10 AM

There's two boats pictured. The purple one has the black/white interior and the red one has the red/black/white interior. The brown flooring is SeaDek and meant to look like teak. It has a wood grain pattern on it, it looks pretty cool. I'm not saying you have to like the boat, but there is a reason that Nautique boats are on par pricing wise with MC. They've been in the game a long time and put out a quality product. For the same reason everyone hates the G series look, I'd never buy a pickle fork MC. 6 in one, half doz the other...

Tristarboarder 11-16-2013 01:35 AM

Oh yes, now I see they are two different interiors.. My bad. I know Seadek well, I have it on my boat. The faux (imitation) wood look is cool for sure. I know SAN is the real deal, probably THE top tier boat company, but my point was, while most drool over that $110k boat, my opinion was, just my opinion, that it is ugly. I drive a gen2 xstar, traditional bow. The subtle differences between the pickle fork MC vs the flat bow of the SAN are minuscule. My opinion was the X2 looks "cleaner", less industrial. That's all, no hard feelings on a Mastercraft site.

AlbertaSurfer 11-16-2013 02:07 AM

None at all, you're welcome to your opinion. I really wasn't directing the comments at you TriStar, I was just making a statement because I don't think Nautique gets enough credit in this MC crowd. I have a 205v Star and I love it for it's versatility. Honestly, I'm not that big a fan of the G's either, if I had $100k to blow, I'd get a SAN 210. That said, I like the X-30 as well. My problem with these boats is I'd need a slalom tug around too, where my 205v Star slaloms okay. As I get older and don't have any kids, wakeboarding is going out the window. Falls hurt more these days, making my use of a full wakeboard boat kinda pointless. When I was wakeboarding every day it was behind a Moomba Boomerang, a Nautique 200 and a Banshee. This was back in 94-00, so we had sandbags, Rubbermaid tubs, steel etc to weigh the boats down. We never had wakes like this, so I'm not sure I need it these days.

swatguy 11-16-2013 08:38 AM

Really like it as well.


110k base for a 21ft boat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 more years and we will be seeing 200k for 24ft'rs. Insane.

Built in InFlation my friend........due to the de-valuing of the dollar by the fed. resrv.

The cost of Everything goes UP......the value of your bank account and your buying power goes DOWN.

That'd be why I'm stickong with what I have. Prices are nuts.

Traxx822 11-16-2013 09:49 AM

I'm with Tristar, I think it looks like garbage. The interior throws me off big time. So square, so flat nothing special I can see.

The exterior of these rival boats looks awful. More and more free board and weight and no thought to design. Just tug around 8k#'s and that will make a wake. Yeah, no s#I*

No analogue gauges either. Not impressed one little bit.

Black tower, weird 6x9 speakers. JUNK

scott023 11-16-2013 09:56 AM

I'm sure its an amazing boat, but that whole interior set up is heinous, IMO. Too square, flat, chunky. Doesn't look inviting to me.

Burbon66 11-16-2013 10:16 AM

I got to see a G23 up the river the other weekend, and this looks just the same, or maybe I am not looking close enough, anyway way too much going on with the interior for my liking, and at what point did they think a massive mounting block either side to attach the tower to was an excellent idea?

tkemperdc 11-16-2013 10:32 AM

I have a friend that loves nautique, I just cannot wrap my head around the looks. I did not like them online, but thought maybe seeing one in person, nope. I will say I have not wakeboarded or surfed behind one. I'll stick with my MasterCrafts.

Everyone likes something different, so, I understand some will love some will not. Chalk me up for the not.

Was also my exact thought on the interior.

barefoot 11-16-2013 10:44 AM

I think I'm missing something...I think it's ugly as h%ll too. I feel like I'm looking at a boat from the '80's with some recent updates. The steering wheel looks like it's straight off a Camaro. Everything looks 2-D. There's no lines…it's box-y...it looks like a floating brick.

It reminds me of that fat women who wears costume jewelry. She thinks she looks good, and, well, you can put make-up on a pig, but it still is what it is.

Is that too harsh? I'd surf behind it any chance I'd get. Stylistically, there is nothing I like about it.

I don't think its harsh. Everyone sees things differently. I agree with you. Wake may be amazing, but it had to look good too, in order to be the complete package.

bcd 11-16-2013 12:53 PM

Calling it JUNK is a little harsh. I agree the looks aren't the best, and the purple doesn't help in my opinion. I must be warming up to the looks a little because I think it does look better than the G23 first did. None of their 2014 boats look anywhere as good as their 2013's.

Nautique boats are not junk, and I think calling it that on Teamtalk makes all MC owners look bad. The boat just got released, so you obviously have no information on the boat other than how it looks.

Traxx822 11-16-2013 01:12 PM

When I said junk I meant it looks like junk. Descriptively about the appearance at that. I thought I was clear enough on what I thought was junk.

soacj 11-16-2013 01:30 PM

I grew up with a Correct Craft, but the current Nautique design language just does not click with me. The Mastercraft "look", exterior and interior, is so much cleaner and sleeker in my opinion.

That being said, Nautique quality is certainly not in doubt.

Speaking of "Correct Craft", when did they dump the old name?

pap 11-16-2013 03:41 PM

That thing looks sweet. "starting price" 108,000 however with options it sounds ouchy!

Yeah, the MSRP for a 21 foot boat does seem out of the ballpark. BUT some will pay this with out a doubt!

If someone had that cash you could in theory buy a wake and a slalom boat and have the best of both worlds for the cash spent.

snork 11-16-2013 07:17 PM

I wouldn't kick it off my hitch
sometimes its not how it looks but how it performs
