I'm looking at the Air Nautique SV-211. It seems like a great boat for the family, as the hydro-gate allows for manipulating the size of the wake - much like the Tige' TAPS system.

Anyone have feedback on the quality of wake behind a SV-211? How does it compare to it's big brother SAN?

Several threads on it over at

Seems to get very good reviews over there. I have sat in one at the dealer and liked it's layout compared to my Sport.

It will be high on my list to test when I get ready to switch to a v-drive.

Hydrogate doesn't do a whole lot, decent for wakeboarding at best, very poor slalom wakes.

Ride was rough for a boat built by nautique, and the quality was lacking as well. Take a look at the fiberglass cuts behind the combing pads, cheap carpet inserts in the storage area, and the lack of people space and storage...

Its the size of a sea doo (4 adults maybe) if you add the optional camp stool back seat.

Drove the Mal 21 LSV side by side and no comparison for a family v-Drive! Quality of interiors, amount of storage and people space, ride, wakes...

I think you must be thinking of the wrong boat. I was at nationals and all over a 211 team sitting there and it was gi-normous for a nautique. I thought is was quite generous in seating and storage. It seems to be getting billed as a great all around boat for people with more interests than just wakeboarding. It has a moderately sized wake without adding sacks, but has a better ski wake than say a 210. Great family boat. Wish I had the money to burn at the moment.

I rode in one and was quite impressed with the fit and finish. Tons of storage and the wake (unweighted) had a nice shape. We rode old school Byerly tower and no weight other than passangers.
