I'm in the market for a used Nautique (something in the 20K +or- range. Like everyone else I want the best wake possible. Are there any Nautique hulls that don't produce an awesome wake? Are they all steep? I hear the old 2001s throw a nice wake, and the late 90's too. Are there any specific years I should stay away from?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong here, but the only one that is significantly different is the Ski Nautique. It's 19' and a difference hull than today's shapes. I will say from personal experience riding behind a 95 Ski Nautique, if you sack it out (we used 5 total) the wake still gets scary big and the engine doesn't even flinch out of the hole.

If I had $20k I'd go with a 1995 Super Sport (that deal is out there somewhere), a newer (1995-1997) Sport Nautique, or go over to Malibu and get a mid-late 90's Sunsetter VLX.

Good advice. Thanks AGAIN David. I wasn't sure which older Malibu hulls would be good for me. And there aren't very many on the used market.

J-Rod... Ever think of instead of a mastercraft or Nautique... For 20K + -.. you could get a pretty new v-drive supreme, Centurion, b-52...etc, with all the goodies

Yep. I'm considering that too Aaron. I rode behind a heavily loaded supreme last season and it wasn't bad.

What about the Moomba Mobius V?

I considered those too, but someone said buy 2002 or newer because the hull design made a big improvement in 2002. I'm not prepared to spend on a 2002.
