I purchased my 2008 210 SANTE in Jan 2009 I was going to order a 09 210 when my dealer called me with some deep deals on unsold 08 boats in California . Since the dealers were going out of business and credit was tight they were priced to sell. I signed the papers at the 2009 Chicago Boat Show. Since the first time I saw it I knew it was the right boat, another perfect fit. There are so many things I like about my 210 Ill try to keep it short.
1- Wake, being a Super Air you know the board wake is good but with the push of a button and without a lot of ballast it produces a great surf wake even with only 2 peeps. Although its not a ski boat the wake is surprisingly good at 32mph
2- Tower mine has a stainless steel titan tower . Rock solid, super easy to fold and only sits 2 1/2 '' above the windshield folded. Not to mention dam good looking. Head room is a little tight but any taller would take away from the look.
3- Interior , I love the ''transformer'' interior I can seat 6 facing back comfortably. The look and feel of the vinyl screams quality. Air rams on all seats except bow allows easy access to all the storage areas. The rear deck storage easley holds wake boards skis or surfboards and locks for security. The rubber backed carpet snaps out for easy cleaning. The drivers seat adjusts forward ,back and swivels to face the rear it also has a bolster to raise the height for the wife.There is also a ski storage in the walk through floor it works perfect for anchors. Led lighting through out.
4- Engineering , Nautique engineers their boats to have things fit so they can be maintained easily . Things like ballast and raw water impellers, batteries, circuit breakers, filters , transmission , V drive and gas tank are all accessible. In fact I can change the ballast impellers while in the water in about 2 minutes. The entire floor comes out with 6 screws to access the bilge and fuel tank. The side panels next to the engine slide out with the pull of a pin to easily service the engine and there is at least 12-15 '' of space between the transom and the engine .
5-Hull The hull design is unique to the 210 super solid and quite under way .It handles like a sports car . I have almost 400 hours now nothing is loose NO SPIDER CRACKS, colors and gloss are just like it was new . All hardware is stainless steel as well as the hand rails and cleats. Solid windshield trimmed in stainless steel.
6- Dash I love the layout of the dash with easy to read gauges led backups and zero off GPS throttle control . Every thing is there including depth, water temp,air temp to name a few . This boat is a dream to drive the drivers seat feels like a race car with great side support and over all function.
These are a few of my favorite things about my boats what are yours?
