2000? sport nautique

ok seller states this is a 2000 which I don't think it is. Isn't this more of a 97-99? or possibly even older? Asking price is $12k which I already know is way too much considering the interior is trashed and the other big down side is no P.P. or tower. would like opinions on value of this one. Not too thrilled it's a SN but if the price is right would at least get me a boat again to be able to ski and possibly surf. I'm guestimating $4k for interior replaced and probable around 2-3k for a tower then of course putting wetsounds back on it with a bimini.

Thoughts?

wish I could find a 195 around this price instead.

You might want to try and ski behind it, I heard the slalom wake is horrible on a 2001 air nautique, which I think is the same hull. I'm not positive though I'd try and find any info on the correct craft fan forum.

Holy crap. Some people have a lot more dough than I do to trash it like that.

Go to planet nautique to get the answer. If it is a stretched tsc1 hull (doesn't appear to be based on the rear end), I'd say you are good to ski. If it is based on the mid 90's hull or air nautique (as mentioned above), definitely want to ski it 1st.

Nautiques are sweet boats though. The 97+ 196's are great, especially at my -15/-22 level.... I will for sure look at a mid 2000s cc206 if I ever sell my 205. Also would look at the mc 197 and 214....

would love to have another 197 but budget won't allow it right now. My biggest concern is going to be am I going to be sitting right price wise after redoing the interior adding a tower and perfect pass. I'm thinking I would need to be closer to $6k for that to happen

My brother had a 99 Ski Nautique and his back corners were not cut like that. They were more rounded.

Not sure if that helps determining the year.

It is at least a 99. In 1998, the hull changed(better ski wake) and the rear went from a sloped rear end to vertical like in the pics. In 99, it became a true walk thru(pictured)open bow w/ filler cushion vs a playpen triangle bow cushion. Decent ski wake at 34 mph, especially at 28 and shorter.

Technically it is badged as a TSC hull, same as the SN from 97+, but some would argue it isn't really a TSC. Skis well for a 21.5' boat. Good surf wake with enough weight. I have a lot of hours in and behind this boat 99 and a 2002, both surfing and skiing. Built really well and i love that engine.

That boat's a wreck. Looks like it could have had saltwater use to me especially with the aluminum trailer and the way the vinyl is trashed. To me that's a $5K - $7K project boat if the engine checks out. Let's do some of the easy math here.....

interior - full rebuild $3K - $4K
motor - if it still is solid. full tune, fluids, filters, impeller, hoses, etc. $500 - $600
trailer - most likely trashed too if he let the boat go this bad. brakes, tires, actuator, etc. $1K - $1.5K
hull - wash, rub, wax, price to fix cables, lights etc. - $700 - $1000

On the risk side you're looking at $7K without your stereo. You basically need to get this for free to come close to making it work. I like Demoman's boat better. Offer him $2K less, have it shipped to you and start using it tomorrow.....

I agree with BTurner2. It's a dog. The trailer is not an original Nautique trailer. Interior, hull, etc like Turner said is right on. How much confidence do you have in a properly maintained engine when you look at how they maintained the rest of the boat? And that stuff is the "easy" stuff.

Also, I'm pretty sure that it is not a 2000. The 2000 graphics had the big "N" on the side. See here.


The side graphics look more like a 1999 here or a 1998

EDIT - it very well may be a 2000 year model. There are a few 2000's that don't have the "N" logo.

$12,000 for that is absolutely insane. Maybe the owner should have actually taken care of it if he wanted to get that price.

Oh, I forgot to add that if I brought that home for anything less that $2K my boating friends would use it as the running gag for years. The wife probably wouldn't let me back in the house and the subdivision would probably write a citation for parking an eyesore in on my lot.

This looks like another one of those "use and abuse" boat owners that expect full NDA for their trashed boat.

Obviously still liking Demomans boat......
