Nautique Crossover 211 2009

OVERVIEW

Correct Crafts' entry-level wakeboard boat, the Nautique Crossover 211, is priced to get multisport families out on the water. It's also a Correct Craft, which means the Nautique 211 features all the reliability, durability and quality construction you expect from a company with more than 80 years of boatbuilding experience. Thanks to 625 pounds of factory ballast, standard built-into-the-steering-wheel cruise and the wake-tuning capabilities of Nautiques' exclusive Hydro-Gate technology, the Nautique 211 is a multifaceted performer. It's ready to tow quality wakeboarding, wakeskating and wakesurfing sessions right from your dealer.

FAVORITE FEATURE:

Under-seat Cooler

Nautiques' designers squeezed as much space as possible from this just-under-21-foot ride, creating seating for 10 in addition to tons of innovative storage in the bow, lounge and even under the transom walk-through. We liked this 58-quart built-in cooler, which doubles as the rear passenger seat.

THE WAKES

Fill up the Nautique 211's two rear tanks and set the Hydro-Gate to the wakeboard setting and you'll catch more than enough air for all your wake-to-wake moves. We found the sweet spot at 70 feet and 22 mph, but if you want to score extra air, let out your line length and bump up your speed.
