ORLANDO, FLA (March 16, 2011)—The 2011 Moomba Masters Invitational Championship was an amazing competition with a record breaking attendance of over 500,000 people during the six day event. The Ski Nautique 200 pulled eight course records, one Australian record plus podium performances for Team Nautique athletes Natallia Berdnikava and Scot Ellis; while the Super Air Nautique 230 made its debut on the Yarra River to pull the wakeboard event.

“The 51st Moomba Masters was record breaking not only in attendance but as well as the athlete performances from course records to numerous personal bests,” commented Moomba Masters Organizer, Darren Robertson. “We are proud to have Nautique as the premier towboat pulling this prestigious event, everyone at Nautique has been extremely supportive. The Moomba Masters and U.S. Masters are the powerhouse events worldwide,” added Robertson.
Team Nautique athlete Natallia Berdnikava shined this weekend blowing the competition away earning a first place win in Tricks and also placing second in Jump. Long-time Team Nautique skier, Scot Ellis podium third in Jump and again in the Night Jump!
The Super Air Nautique 230 provided the best wake ever to be ridden behind on the Yarra River for the wakeboard competition. The competitors were not only amazed how clean the wake was but also the size of wake that allowed these wakeboarders to perform.

This premier event requires the industry’s best boat and we are happy that they have chosen Nautique,” stated Nautique’s President/CEO Bill Yeargin. “The many records pulled behind the Ski Nautique 200, included all of those set at this year’s Moomba Masters; proves once again that it is undisputedly the best ski boat in the market.” Yeargin added.
