Two Major Awards for Nautique
Sometimes it is really nice to be surrounded by amazing people. If I thought people would keep reading this blog entry I would list over a thousand names of people who make up the employees, athletes and dealers of Nautique. They truly are amazing.
Last night we caught a glimpse of just how amazing.
The Water Sports Industry Association handed out its annual awards and Nautique won big. Nautique won awards for being the Manufacturer of the Year and having the Most Innovative Product.
A company does not receive both of these awards on the same night without having incredible people on their team. In my role I sometimes get the recognition but I know that I really play a very small role. We have a great team; again, I wish I could name them all.
The most amazing part of this team? They do not do what they do for themselves. Our team is 100% committed to our customers who vote us Manufacturer of the Year every year with their hard earned money. Our team is obsessed with doing everything we can to not only build the world’s best boats but also provide the world’s best service after the sale.
So today our team takes a minute to celebrate. But don’t worry; tomorrow we will be working as hard as we can to get better. You see, we are never satisfied. No matter what award we may win or recognition we receive we still view ourselves every day in the starting block. The future is bright!
The world’s best wake boat; the world’s best ski boat; and a company that cares.
Enjoy the Nautique life!

Nautique introduces the innovative 100% Electric Super Air 230E
Since debuting the Ski Nautique E a year ago, Nautique has been working to develop a 100% electric wakeboard boat and today Nautique introduces to the world, the Super Air Nautique 230 E.
The first viewing of the Super Air Nautique 230 E will be at the Detroit Boat Show on February 11-19, 2012 in the Silver Spray Sports Nautique dealership exhibit. This boat will make additional appearances at Nautique events throughout 2012.

Like the Ski Nautique E, the electric motors connect through a transfer case to the propeller shaft of the boat producing performance worthy of the Nautique Brand.
The Super Air Nautique 230 E is equipped with state of the art lithium ion batteries with an available storage capacity of up to 78 kW-hours.

NAUTIQUE ANNOUNCES THE INDUSTRY’S FIRST HIGH PERFORMANCE 100% ELECTRIC BOAT
Nautique announced the industry’s first high performance 100% electric boat, the Ski Nautique E. To explore future propulsion technology, Nautique has partnered with LTS Marine, a Canadian company who specializes in electric motors.
LTS Marine began teaming up with Nautique during 2010 to test their electric system in a Ski Nautique. The Ski Nautique E contains two automotive electric motors that provide all the power necessary to meet the every day needs of our customer. The electric motors connect through a transfer case to the propeller shaft of the boat producing tournament worthy performance.
The Ski Nautique E is equipped with state of the art lithium ion batteries that are located to keep the center of gravity according to the boat performance; when fully charged this is equivalent to eight gallons of gas accommodating up to four slalom skiers during a session and achieving speeds of nearly 40mph. This new emissions free technology is extremely eco-friendly and requires minimal maintenance.
Two of the world’s most highly regarded water skiers recently skied behind the Ski Nautique E. Andy Mapple, 6 time Men’s World Champion stated, “In over four decades of water skiing this new boat from Nautique is the most exciting advancement I have seen. Waterski boats are the high end of boating and require tremendous performance; and Nautique, partnering with LTS, has made it work! This is forward thinking; it will be no surprise to anyone that Nautique is the boat company that made this happen.”
Current Women’s World Champion, Whitney McClintock commented, “The Ski Nautique E is powerful and peppy getting up to speed! It was a strong and smooth pull through the slalom course. While I was tricking, the only difference was the silence…It was nice to enjoy the sound of the water… So pure!”
