I don't mind the tower or the Bimini, but those new racks are horrible. Standard bungee ones look so much better.

I went to my local Nautique dealer a month or so ago and sat in a 20 and chatted with him about it. I think I recall him saying most of the "normally" equipped ones were going for the $95k range.

that boat is almost as ugly as the water they filmed that video in. not to mention those racks remind me of the ones on our Mastercraft from 03.

Looks like a Tug rather than a ski boat, sorry.

I personally like the looks of the GS series but of course looks are all personal preference. One thing I really like about them is how flat they ride when loaded down even for surfing. Seeing over the bow while seated is no issue.

I'm interested in the new racks. 2300 lb hard tank subfloor ballast. Also, the boat is 6 feet 8 inches tower folded on a trailer.

That has to have some folks ears perked up.

Preface, that i've become quite the fan of Nautiques and what they do. the functionality of them just seems to be in their favour. below are my thoughts on it.

I think you're making a mistake comparing the X30 wake to the GS22. Compare a G23 to an X30.

gotta compare it to an xt20, 21(i know its not out yet) or even an X10 and the G20,22 are miles ahead of MC unfortunately...
The tower is definitely a drawback, shame they don't offer the G series tower as an upgrade. (ZFT4 vs 7) but it's 6'8" when down. not bad for the garage folks.

2300 lbs under floor ballast you never even need to use a rack. throw it in the lockers.

but then take into account, the captain's chair, rear facing lounge seats, the 12" screen with the dial control at the helm. even as hokey as it is the rear view camera lets you watch all the action while paying attention to what's ahead of you. gotta say that Nautique has surpassed MC in terms of functionality of an inboard where MC looks to be going towards stealing market share from the cruiser market and luxury cruising.

^Based on time aboard a few neighbors' G's this past summer, gotta agree with the functionality comments including storage.

IMO, the X30 comparison to the GS22 is valid in that rec slalom, wake, and surf appear similar in a 22-23' craft, where the G23 would turn a slalom skier into a missle launch. Enjoying our X10's superb cross over abilities, the GS22 is appealing including the tub of a bow area and transom seats. In general, I was under the impression that the larger and deeper Nauti nose would not permit a decent ski wake, would like to see and ski it.

sounds like the NCRS takes care of that nose digging for the slalom. Fair enough on the ski wake X30 vs G23, definitely a valid point.

New racks seem odd, not sure how well they'd rotate with speakers.

Also, these boat companies need to stop using guys that are 5'4" tall. pure lies.
