Up here in the Okanagan no word of a lie probably over 50 people get a new G every year and put 50 hrs on them. People want simplicity and best of the best.

    Nautique isn’t the only one doing this. Malibu just released their m240 which falls into about the same price category.
    Really? I agree it's nutso on the cost but the wave looks pretty epic.

    HAHA...I love that pic. We make fun of other manufacturers for using kids surfing in their pictures. All Nautique did was find a short adult and at the right angle that wave looks 5-6ft tall.

    Hmm...for some reason that pic looks photoshopped. Akerman is a decent sized dude....something just doesn't look right to me.

    Yes it does have some decent size to it. Nautique definitely used their photo skills on some of these pictures, turning the horizon onto an angle in pretty much every picture. It still has that traditional G shape and some of the pics I’ve seen haven’t been super clean. I have heard some decent, unbiased opinions so going to wait until I get to try it out first.

    The whole photo is rotated 45*, unless trees started growing sideways. Rotate to where the horizon is level, and it looks like a 23RZX wave....

    Honestly, this seems like a simple marketing tactic by Nautique. Build it and see who buys it, amiright? I mean, there are dudes (and ladies) out there who simply buy the most expensive things. These boats are already squarely in the realm of luxury at this point. If your going to spend 180, why not spend 220? or 260? What do I get? Well, it's got a unique color scheme and cool angles on the front of the boat. It requires no customization for someone who doesn't want to break the factory config. It has ostrich skin vibrating helm seats, and is shipped with two models of your choice of gender and color to take pictures with. So why not?

    Of course, a lot of us are trying to find a smoking deal on a 2 year old (or in my case, 10 year old) boat that kicks *** and can be taken care of. We clearly are not the market.

    Also, as a big lake boater, i'm a little shocked this is a 23 and not a 25? Hmm..

    Nothing surprises me anymore. Haters gonna hate!! I guarantee there will be 10 of these on Tahoe in the first year. People that live in $75 million dollar houses and drive Bentleys and Rolls aren’t concerned about a boat that costs $300k, especially if their spoiled kids want them to buy one. I think anyone that buys the first model year is probably a little crazy, but that isn’t going to stop them. I’ll be the first one out if I ever have the opportunity to ride behind one.

    Camera angle is everything I suppose!

  11. This is why we need tax rates back to where they should be. The rates we had from 30's thru the 70's when the middle class did the best.

    Doesnt matter your tax rate, if you cant afford this boat currently you couldnt afford it paying 0 taxes.
