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...

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.

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.

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

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.

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?

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.
