Nautique introduced the new Super Air Nautique GS20.

The company said hundreds of people attended the launch event, which was held at the GM Heritage Center in Detroit.

The company said the Super Air Nautique GS20 is the first of its kind, with a hull designed to optimize the wake and wave under running conditions for wakeboarding, wakesurfing and waterskiing.

Distinct characteristics taken from the Ski Nautique 200 begin at the bow, transforming into features of the G-series at the transom. The company said new technology in the Nautique Configurable Running Surface has been developed for flawless performance at every speed and user setting.

This new hull design seeks to create a wakeboard wake and surf wave unusual for a 20-foot boat, using 1,850 pounds of sub-floor internal ballast and the Nautique Surf System.

“The Super Air Nautique GS20 leaves nothing to be desired in a 20-foot boat for the family that wants to have it all with the ability to do it all,” Nautique president Greg Meloon said in a statement.

“We have created a true multi-sport boat that perfectly combines features from our Ski Nautique 200 and Super Air Nautique G-Series, resulting in performance and style that could only come from Nautique.”
