Nautique is a boat company that has been around the block and back, and they have built a sterling reputation for making solid, reliable inboards. It’s easy to understand how this company has been in business for over 80 years when you set your sights on an amazing boat like the 2013 Super Air Nautique G25.
Although the G25 is new to the Nautique family, it appears to be the result of years of research and development. It is one of the few boats on the market where all of the best amenities come standard and not one detail has been overlooked. Top that off with a gargantuan 25 foot hull and you’ve got a boat that will not only please the hardcore wake connoisseurs, but all 19 people on board as well.
And it doesn’t stop with the highly polished exterior. The G25 is already setting a precedent of how a large tow boat should perform. The unique hull shape reduces water and wind resistance, the ultra torquey Pleasurecraft engine brings it to a plane in seconds, and it all funnels back to a precision steering system that will make you think you're driving a boat that is 8 feet shorter.

Is it the Right Boat for You?
It’s hard to get over how classy this boat looks. In a nod to classic maritime vessels, the G25 has been outfitted with some superb looking teak accents; couple that with an ultra modern fiberglass pickle fork bow shape, and you’ve got a boat that will please anyone who appreciates great design aesthetic.
Make no mistake about it though, this boat is best suited for wakeboarders and wakesurfers that run in large packs. If you find that you usually have to leave some folks behind at the dock then upgrading to a monster like the G25 will let you spend more time with your friends and more time on the water. And although it’s painful to fill up, the 83 gallon tank will help prevent that inevitable gas run half way through your day.
All of this ultra premium packaging does come with a pretty steep cost. At well over 100,000 dollars it is by far one of the most expensive boats on the market. Even so, with a name like Nautique you know for sure that you are buying an ironclad boat that will deliver consistent riding experiences for years to come.
