opinion on Nautique vs MC
 
I have read many post about Nautique being similar to MC, I found a 2004 Air Nautique 226 Team Edition. How would this boat do for a family rig for ski,surf,wakeboard,kneeboard. What model would it be similar to in the MC family.

I am having a hard time finding a MC in my price range and the Nautique is very close

They both make great boats. I dont' fault either company on build quality - although having learned inboard on MC - the backwards rotation on Nautique is irksome.

having owned a 02 moomba outback and a 05 supra ssv 22 and been in friends cc 216 and
cc sv 211 the seat height is what I noticed the most. build quality between the skier's choice boats and the other two are world apart. ton's of gelcoat cracks in both my moomba and supra.

both nautique and mc seem to be the best built by far. either way you won't go wrong.

oh now I own a mc x2.

You are opening up a can of worms with this thread. The 226 is a nice boat and is considered a crossover model. The 2008 226 model hull design is a little better all around as it was redesigned. I have a friend that had a 226 and he is one of the better wakeboarders I know, plus he is an engineer for CC. He also does competitions as well. I am not sure about the slalom wake, but it would make a great family boat.

As far as a MC that compares, probably something like the Prostar 205V or Xstar. It has an awesome wakeboard wake and a pretty good surf wake. Slalom wake is acceptable but not competition worthy. Personally, I would rather have the 205V over the 226, but that is just my opinion.

I currently have a 225 Crownline I/O and have never owned a V-drive Inboard. Everything we do is recreational and involves kids.

I kid - no I don't...

MC and nautique are both great boats. Most of my friends have nautique boats, and they are top notch in quality. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase one if the circumstances were right.
