Nautique details product innovations for 2017 models


Nautique announced new product innovations for 2017 that include a new helm design that features an asymmetrical dash with open storage and phone pocket and a new 12.4-inch LINC Panoray touchscreen.

The display features custom configurations in a new switchboard menu.

The new Nautique Awareness camera also has been added to give the driver a bird’s-eye view right on the screen.

Nautique has redesigned the G-Series Flight Control Tower for 2017 with larger cast parts and new lines.

New surfboard storage options include raptor-coated board racks with tines that are designed to work with surfboards and wakeboards and a new spinner mechanism.

The bimini design has also been updated with low-profile storage for two surfboards.

Nautique owners now have more custom styling options, ranging from new gelcoat and interior colors to the new Nautique Surf graphics package.

Nautique badging and accent features are now available in white chromax on the hull side and transom, along with new gelcoat color options that include Tahitian Lime, Bronze Metal Flake, Sublime Metal Flake and Reef Blue Metal Flake.

Interior vinyl is now available in Tahitian Lime, along with a new Frost base color option. There are five new thread colors: Mojave, Tungsten, Victory Red, Reef Blue and Masters Blue. There is a new hand-stitched leather steering wheel option.

Surf control has been updated for 2017 in Nautique Surf Select 2.0, which features ballast shift and can adjust the Zero Off Speed Control, NSS, NCRS, wave transfers, stereo track and volume.

All Nautique models now feature dual USB ports throughout the boat.

Nautique and JL Audio have continued their partnership, and in 2017 customers have the option of the M-Series Elite package in the Super Air Nautique G23 and G25, which includes two 12-inch JL subwoofers powered by a 1,000-watt JL marine amplifier. New 8.8-inch JL Audio tower speakers feature integrated downlighting.

“Nautique is renowned for driving innovation and introducing technology that enriches our customers’ experiences on the water,” Nautique president Greg Meloon said in a statement.

“When you’re in or behind a Nautique you expect nothing less than the very best, and you will discover it in every detail of our new 2017 product. Our strong partnerships with industry-leading suppliers allow Nautique to introduce products that are innovative, tested and proven to perform.”
