Ballast: As you flip through this guide, you may be surprised that for a 23-foot boat, the maximum ballast offered for the Super Air Nautique 230 is 791 pounds. And that ballast is optional. You'll see other wakeboard boats around the full ton mark. At the Masters, yeah, they'll load it up more. We usually would, too. But when we tested it with only the factory ballast system, the 230 showed performance good for most levels of wakeboarders.
