|I'm looking at older SAN 210's and I was wondering in terms of hull shape, what has changed since 2001?|
|Nothing under the water until 2007 where it changed to what is now the current 210 hull.|
|The hull is the same until 2007. The biggest change on the boat was in 2002 and it was on the inside the boat. The made the gunals smaller and the floor deeper. The 2002 SAN feels much bigger feeling inside then the 2001 and older models. I think 2002 was the last year the GT-40 351 Ford was offered too.|
|Wasn't it 02 or 03 the first year they added the belly tank for the ballast system too? Not that you couldn't add it, just curious.|

" 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. "
|That's why my first boat will be an older 210... not so expensive and a wake! I don't care how the interior looks when I'm 80 ft behind |
Nautique = great wake
|So - the hull has changed and is different for 2008 to 1999, but would a 2008 SAN 210 fit in a trailer that I have that currently works for my 1999 SAN 210? How would I tell if the trailer is going to fit, or how could I tell if it doesn't fit without actually trying it?|
|what hull does the 97 sport naut have?|
|Will, The new hull (07+) is wider so Iím sure it will not fit on a 99 trailer. I donít know what brand trailer you have, but if the frame is big enough maybe a trailer shop could modify it to fit.|
|Jeff, same hull as the 97-06 210.|
