Nautique introduced its next-generation Super Air Nautique G23 wakeboat.

The G23 features the new Nautique Configurable Running Surface, which fine-tunes the hull surface under any condition, using the latest technology in the Nautique LINC system.

“Every inch of the boat’s hull was designed to create a wake that will work for every level of riding at any speed and line length without sacrificing a clean lip, long transitions and solid pop,” the company said. “Additionally, with over 2,800 pounds of sub-floor internal ballast, the G23 offers you maximum ballast with maximum storage and a world-class wake without the need for additional weight.”

The long list of new features in the G23 includes integrated, custom-designed navigation and docking light arrays with LED lights; a bow design offering deep, comfortable seating; a removable in-floor transom cooler; the functional Flight Control Tower; dynamic, “aggressive” hull-side graphics and gelcoat pattern; a reversible stern seat with a convenient slide mechanism; and Nau-Teak flooring throughout the boat.

“The revolutionary new Super Air Nautique G23 is a result of years of hard work by our elite team of athletes and product development team. The G23 will advance the wake industry in ways far beyond what anyone thought possible,” Nautique CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. “Only Nautique, the company who brought the industry the first inboard towboat, the boat tower, internal ballast, GPS speed control and many other firsts, could build a boat this innovative.”

The Super Air Nautique G23 will open the wake season April 11-14 at the 2012 Nautique Wake Games in Orlando, Fla.
