I've owned three Correct Crafts before this one, a '79 Mustang, a '86 Silver Nautique and a '94 Ski Nautique. All of these were terrific boats and great performers for their intended uses. However, for where we are now as a family (with two young skiers and lot of friends and family nearby) this Sport Nautique has been our best purchase yet.

Our first use of this boat was Memorial Day weekend (2012) by the end of the season, we had put nearly 50 hours on the boat! We simply love it. It's the ultimate family boat that can still pull competitive recreation skiing, surfing and riding.

Our previous Correct Crafts have been terrific ski boats but, due to passenger limitations, were primarily used them from the dock at our family lake house in ME. The Sport has changed all of that. In addition to weekends in ME, we now regularly spend full days out on the water at lakes near our home. The ability to share the water with non-waterski families is amazing. Over the summer we taught 8 new skiers and introduced surfing to another half dozen riders this season!

This 21' boat will still do 46+ mph with the GT-40 and will put out a nice surf wake with the correct weight at about 9.5 mph. I've been asked a lot about how I weight this boat and here's what works for me - 800 lb sack on top of the back seat, then the two heaviest adults sit on the gunwell bow side of the sack, on the surf side. Then I disperse additional passengers in the observer's bench and small kids in the bow (all on surfer's side). This works well and is versatile given that we have riders both normal and goofy.

The boat came with an aftermarket Monster Tower, Clarion Stereo, stern mounted stereo remote, tower cans, 10" sub-woofer, PerfectPass Pro 6.5, bimini and custom Rankin cover.

Since owning the boat we've installed a new rubrail, decals, pin stripping, Clarion XN3410 marine amp, PerfectPass Stargazer, PerfectPass PrecisionStar GPS speedo, VR-140 Elite mirror, Aerial ski racks and new swim platform (from CCF Store).

The boat sits on a white '97 Prestige trailer.
