Wakeboard Boat Review
The boat that redefined the Nautique name is back for 2013. With a dry weight of 5,400 pounds and almost 3,000 extra pounds of factory ballast, the G23 has an unbelievable wake straight out of the box. The majority of riders will never even need to put more ballast in this boat for surfing or wakeboarding. The G23 isn’t just a stripped-down wake behemoth, though. It also has some of the most innovative rider-inspired features we have seen in a wake boat. Some of those features include the multiple rear-facing seats and the convertible bench seat, along with the Nautique Configurable Running Surface, which fine-tunes the boat’s hull for quick and efficient takeoffs and sets the hull deep in the water at running speeds for the meaty ramps the G23 hangs its hat on. Other features we love are Nau-Teak flooring for low-maintenance cleaning, the Launch Control System screen for easy control of the boat’s functions, the Flight Control Tower, the giant and deep open bow and much more.
The Nautique G23 is the best boat for you if: You want a true wakeboarding and surfing-specific boat that’s as functional as it is comfortable for you and 15 friends.
