Loving the New 226!

Daybreak wakesurfing behind the new 226!

All-new Nautique Stowable Observer's Seat

If you spend much time with me you will quickly learn how much I enjoy spending time on my Nautique with friends and family. Our family has been boating since my kids were small and I know boating plays an important role in the fact that we have a close family. There is nothing like spending time on the lake with those you care about, especially in a Nautique!

All of our Nautique models are great for spending time with friends and family but I have especially enjoyed spending time in the new Nautique 226.

I knew the 226 was going to be a great boat when our VP of Product Development, Greg Meloon (great grandson of our founder and lifetime Nautique enthusiast) told me the 226 was the best built Nautique to date. Now that’s saying a lot when you consider all the awards we have won (including seven straight J.D. Power awards), the patents we have secured and the incredible reputation Nautique has for being far and away the highest quality inboard on the market.

The new 226 has several innovative new features but the one my wife enjoys the most is the Nautique Stowable Observer’s Seat. She can ride aft facing as the kids (or me) are being pulled or, if we are just cruising on the lake, she can reverse the seat to face forward. This seat is unlike anything else you will see in a competitive inboard; you’ve gotta check it out.

The thing I really enjoy about the 226 is the incredible surf wake. The Nautique 226, with the new PCM Catanium engine’s clean emission system, provides a great surf wake whether you are just learning or have been wake surfing for years. If you enjoy wake surfing (and anyone who has tried it does!) you will love this boat.

Other features of the 226 include an expanded wraparound lounge, convenient storage, spacious bow seating and our innovative one piece helm with an iPod input and indigo-blue backlighting.

Our family works (and studies) really hard, but we play equally hard and there is no better way to do that than with a Nautique. If you are like us, you definitely don’t want to buy your next boat until you have checked out the new Nautique 226.

I encourage you to check out the Nautique 226 yourself at Nautique 226Also, for even more information on this great boat, click on Dealers to find the Nautique dealer nearest you. I know you will be glad you did!

Enjoy the Nautique life!
