After months of agony I finally made my decision today, I bought a new SV211. I came really close to buying a Malibu Sunscape (awesome boat) but the Nautique just seemed to fit my needs a little better. Yes the fact that a Nautique has been part of my family since 1972 did factor into my decision. It's a known that I can live with. Both boats were great it just came down to some very minor details that stacked to cards toward the Nautique decision.

You will love your purchase. I have been out in
Clubmyke's SV211 and it is sweet! and throws a nice stock weight...Put about 1000lbs in after stock ballast, and the wake is SICK and very hard.

congrats !!!! what color combo did you go with ?

and daniel is right, add about 900-1000 lbs (with small crew) and the wake is first class all the way.

dont forget to post pics..

Sorry guys, By the time we closed the deal it was getting dark, the wife had had enough, and the boat was being washed.

It's all white with a midnight blue accent stripe below the rub rail. The tower is brushed-anodized aluminum. I wanted polished or powdercoated but they told me this was the most durable finish. Since it's going to be kept outside I went for the durability.

Hammer's ski and marine in Petaluma are great people to work with throughout the whole process.

I'll post pics when I pick it up in two weeks after they switch platforms and trailers.

Your welcome clubmyke. I live in canyon lake and my office is in elsinore. We almost went down to elsinore yesterday as our lake is closed again and my son is really itching to ride.

Mikeski sounds awesome can't wait to see pics of your new vessel. What trailer are your getting? I have been unhappy with a few things on my trailer and it is definitely something that should be considered when buying such a nice boat.

Huge congrats Mike, your cued up for an awesome summer with your new ride. Something tells me you will have an insane sound system in your boat before the summer is over

The trailer is the new Zieman. I was leery of due to some of the problems with thier earlier designs a few years ago but the new ones look top notch. They had a stack of them in the back so I got a chance to look them over pretty closely. The propguard has been redesigned and it looks like the best that I have seen, super strong box tubing, looked like 5x2 box, great color keyed paing finished nicely. Since I only use a trailer a couple times a year I went for the lower cost leaf spring, disc brake, breakaway tongue, chrome wheel, radial tire model. The upgrade adds aluminum wheels, a spare, and torsion. Spare is not needed on the tandem if you know how to chain/strap a dead axle. I was planning on getting another DHM but the Zieman looked good enough for my needs.

Yep it will have some tunes, I am thinking I will keep my 12 radio shack 4" dual cones, I have new tie wraps ready (see best tower speaker thread)

Best part about the signature edition, no relays in the way of the sub...

Of course there are still lots of things that need to be installed in the coming weeks, tower mirror, bimini, tower speakers, subwoofer(s), remotes (stereo and perfect pass), bow speakers, XM radio, etc.

White truck, white Tahoe, white boat, white interior, I guess you could say I like white.

Great looking boat. That color combo will really help at resale time down the road. AS much as I like some of the hotter color combos you really do pay for it in the end I think. Red, White, Blue, and black still are classics. Enjoy Mike!

nice boat mike i think its takes boarding and boats in general to a whole new level. I guess it takes creativity to do what you have done to your boat. I think the boarding and boating scene will blow up, and your gonna be the one to help make that possible.

Very, very nice. I ride with a guy that got the same boat at the end of last season and was quite impressed with the boat and the wake. Huge Congrats!

Great looking boat Mike congrats!!! I noticed they added the fire extinguisher under the driver's dash. Nice touch! Are those permanent tower pads on the bow of the boat, or were they just there during freight?

Henry , fellow 211 Zealot!

Hi Henry,

I think they ship the boats without the towers installed, at least the tops. We put the pads on at the dealership. I have not yet decided if they are permanent yet, they are just stick on rubber pads. They wanted to put them on the tower but I figured they might mark the surface they were not stuck to, I would rather have some rub marks on the tower instead of the boat. I might swap them out for some gator grip on a permanent basis, doubling as step pads.

Congrats Mike!

Another 211 joins the ranks. We'll have to get all the 211's together for a West Coast photo shoot!

Het Mikeski,
Great looking boat. I just ordered a 226 with the midnight blue hull/white main/white/deck. I was going with the same combo you have but I thought a colored hull would look good. One quick question. I can check with the dealer Monday but I thought I'd run it by someone on here and maybe Planet N. I noticed that the seat bases in your 211 appear to be white. Some of the pictures of the 211's and 226's have white with a grey base. Who determines what color the seats will be? Are they ramdomly sending some out of the factory grey and some white? There wasn't anywhere to specify that I wanted grey(which I would prefer) over the white. Any ideas anyone??? If you look through the 05' catalogue - most of the models havseat bases that are a medium grey which is GREAT for the Texas sun. The only two that I can see with white are the 210 Team Super and the 226 Sport

The all white seat bases were ordered special for my boat, the grey is standard. You will notice on Nautique's build a boat that it doesn't even give you the white base option, but my order sheet shows "special" white seat bases.

Mike, It looks like you bought it in Petaluma at Hammers or am I wrong ?

Sweet boat dude, congrats!

Let us know how hard it is keeping the white vinyl clean. Sure looks good.

The boat did come from Hammer's Ski & Marine in Petaluma, shame on me for not giving props to Jim. I have known Jim Hammer for about 10 years. He is very patient and easy to work with and has always been there when I needed help. If you are looking for a Nautique, Sanger or Centurion in the bay area definately look him up. Customer service second to none.

Glad to see your patience and study showed some good rewards. I sure hope I get an invite to ride behind it as it looks very nice and the reputation preceeds.
Very Nice!
BTW, I've always enjoyed your're a very smart man, the ladies say you are very handsome, your ride technique is second to none....I've also heard you are very how about a pull? (major sucking up)

Yahoo! I'll be sure to pick a wakeboard that color matches the boat.

Thanks for the update Mikeski. I'll be happy with the grey base/white back combo like I had on my 2000 Super. The white sure does add class to the interior though. Have fun with the new ride.
