|looking at this SAN and wondering how good of a deal it is based on the specs from the craigslist listing. Can anyone be so kind as to provide a timeline/breakdown of the hull design over the years and let me know what I need to shoot for ? I'm looking at picking up my first Vdrive boat, love SAN's, and want to make sure I do it right. |
Any info would be appreciated!
|if you could get him down to 20,000. |
that would be a good deal.
|I would check the boat out in person, if possible. It's impossible to determine the condition of the boat without seeing it live. I bought a used boat 5 or 6 years ago, and insisted on a test drive. Most motivated sellers will have little problem doing that. |
In great shape, I think 25,000 is not a bad price. Offer him 20 and if he refuses tell him to meet you in the middle, 22500. Wake on that boat is great, and Nautique is a reliable boat.

|This is a copy and past from another thread. The Author is Dragon88 and it is as good of rundown as I have seen. |
In 1995 Correct Craft released the Super Sport Nautique. It was a 21' V-drive family cruiser.
In 1999 Correct Craft released the "Super Air Nautique" using the same hull. It has rear flat ballast tanks (LCS) as well as a the first generation flight control tower. (FCT)
In 2000 Correct Craft released their new dash layout "Smart pod" with digital Teleflex gauges, that are extremely prone to burning out along with the second generation FCT. This was also the first year for colored decks. 2000 was also the 75th anniversary of the CC brand. Boats received a diamond sticker on the windshield that noted this. New reverse "N" gelcoat scheme, but the "classic" graphic/3 stripe was still an option.
2001- Correct Craft at some point does away with true wrap around seating for the "stadium seating." It is also the first year of the 3 piece rear hatch.
In 2002 The deck was redesigned to make more room, the sloped transom of the 01 and previous SS now had a more squared off look it. The boat received a new interior vinyl pattern, which disappeared in 2003. This is also the last year that the PCM GT-40 was offered. 2002 also marked the first of the "Team" edition boats, this package included Kicker audio speakers, wedge tanks, and an optional center ballast. 2002 Also brought a new gelcoat pattern. The buyer could now choose: deck, hull, primary, secondary, and third stripe colors.
In 2003, the SAN saw another dash and interior, these two elements would stay with the boat for the rest of it's run. The Super Air Nautique was also renamed the "210" a name which was reverted mid season back to "Super Air 210" due to consumer outcry. 2003 is widely regarded as a favorite year due to the fact that it contains the best of the new model (04-05) boats + a colored deck (2003 was the final year of production for this.) the actuated trunk covers. 2003 was also the final year of the Python 502 motor in the Super Air and the first year that the PCM Excalibur 330 became standard. This year the CD player was also re-located to the glovebox.
2004- brought us the 3rd generation of the FCT, this was the first year since 2000 that one could no longer order a colored deck. The 2004 boats also saw a new latching system on the back hatches to replace the actuated doors. These are referred to as the "knee busters." 2004 also did away with the 3rd stripe. The SAN from this point on only had Hull, Primary, and Secondary color options.
2005- Correct Craft reverts to the second generation FCT tower. The team edition boats are now outfitted with Polk Momo, and for the first time boats come from the factory with exposed speaker grills. In either 2004 or 2005 (or somewhere in-between those years.) CC added more reinforcement to the bow to make the boat less likely to porpoise.
2006- Correct Craft once again names the 210 the "210 Air" The '06 brought many changes, the most drastic being the new PCM- V-drive transfer case. This new V-drive replaced the Walters unit. The PCM V-drive was smaller, but also changed the prop rotation to a clockwise(right hand rotation.) Along with those changes the problematic "Helm control" system was replaced all together, they used Jabsco ballast puppies (auto reversible pumps.) so there is one pump per tank. The new ballast system drains the water under the hull and as a result the ballast overflow/and drain ports on the hull were eliminated. 2006 also brought a new fourth generation flight control tower. Which seemed to be a modified version of the new SAN220 tower. due to the differences in beam width, the new FCT4 for the SAN has additional bracing. They also elongated the windshield...
In 2007 CC killed off the SAN that we all loved and had loved for over a decade.
To answer your question, the hull has not changed from 1995 when the first Super Sport Nautique rolled off the floor. There were only changes to the deck, and various other trim and mechanical changes. Still one of my favorite hulls. My list of changes is not exactly comprehensive but to my knowledge it is fairly close.
Call your boat what you want, but I think SAN covers it all. Everything else is just dressing. In fact, I find it amusing when people say the SANTE has the best wake, like the SANSE or SANLE or SAN or SS have a different wake.....

|I agree that around 22K would be a good deal.|
|Scotty, I posted this on a thread below, but will post it here again. My boat is a few bucks more than the one you're looking at, but I think you'll find it money well spent. Don't know where you're located, but here's a cut & paste of my post on a thread below: |
2002 SAN with full stereo system, upgraded gauges from the crappy digital ones, nice stereo system, perfect pass, board and surf racks, fresh air exhaust, dual axle trailer with swing away tongue, and well taken care of. I won't go a dime lower than $28k right now, and is MUCH more boat than what you're looking at. Here are the pics, contact me at email@example.com if interested:
|04 for 27K |
Go to california to buy a boat. They are hurting, so help them out.
|hmmmm no phone # in the ad. That is always fishy. There are so many stupid scammers on craigslist that I dont even bother if there is no phone # listed.|
|yea... prolly a scam. I haven't heard back from them and its been 5 days since I sent the original ad and email.|
|Someone told me that 04 has 900 hours or something high like that.|
|22-23k would be a decent deal.|
|The 04 has 1600 hours|
