Nautique’s new G23 won the Most Innovative Product award from the Water Sports Industry Association.

The new 2016 Super Air Nautique G23 received the Water Sports Industry Association Leadership Award for Most Innovative Product of the Year this week at the 2016 WSIA Summit in San Diego.

Each year, members of the WSIA cast their vote to recognize industry leaders in the marketplace. Nautique said products from every aspect of the watersports world were submitted from the leading companies in the industry to determine the greatest new innovation introduced since Jan. 1, 2015.

The boat is the newest in Nautique’s G-Series. A reimagined hull design and new technology were integrated to create sculpted surf wave with the integration of Nautique’s Surf System.

It also added Nautique Surf Select remote wave control, new technology at the helm with Nautique LINC Touch and Helm Command, PCM Direct-Injection Engines and JL Audio’s WaveFront.

“Nautique continuously strives to be the industry-driving company, staying at the forefront of innovation. We are always challenging ourselves to create something better that improves our customer’s ownership experience,” Nautique president Greg Meloon said in a statement.

“We continue to revolutionize the industry with all of our products, and the reimagined G23 is the latest example of this commitment. Thank you to everyone at the WSIA and our industry peers that voted for these awards.”
