Nautique unveiled the Super Air Nautique GS24, a multi-sport boat for 2018 that utilizes design characteristics from the G-Series and Ski Nautique 200 models.

The Nautique Configurable Running Surface can be adapted for towing a variety of watersports. The Nautique Surf System provides 2,500 pounds of ballast for wake surfing and boarding, and the NCRS and Ski Assist calm things down for water skiing.

“We are elated to round out the incredibly successful GS-Series with the introduction of the 2018 Super Air Nautique GS24,” Nautique president Greg Meloon said in a statement. “This new boat builds on the versatility of the GS while providing even more room for all your friends and family to join in the fun.”

The GS24 measures 24 feet overall with a beam of 8 feet, 4 inches, and a passenger capacity of 17 people. It can be powered by an inboard engine up to 550 hp with a V-drive transmission. Features include a flip-up passenger seat to port and a wraparound lounge in the cockpit.

The driver has a racing-style, high-backed bucket seat, and the dash has a 12.4-inch touchscreen that gives all the information on engine and on-board systems, plus an aft-facing camera. The transom has a GoPro camera mount, and entertainment is provided by a JL Audio system.
