I don't think Colin knows how to weight his boat properly? I have seen pictures of his wake, it was nothing like what I see behing my boat. I have never had a complaint about the wake of my 211. Even a few of the pro's use the 211 by choice.
The 216 on the other hand requires fat sacks to build a good wake, it is really designed as a ski boat. Are your kids under 12? If yes, then the 216 will probably work if not I would recommend the 211 if you want a nautique. There are lots of other options too like the MC X1, a Malibu Sunscape, Tige, Sanger, Supra, etc.
