Ski Nautique 196 with Spyder Tower
Craft — the name is synonymous with three-event tournament
skiing. They’ve been towing the Masters for more than 35
years, and they’re the oldest family-owned boat manufacturer
in the marine industry. That’s staying power. Now, in an
effort to bulk up interest in tricking and ski flying — and
provide top-tier machines for top-tier athletes — Correct

the years, buttery soft, micro-size slalom wakes have been
perfected, leaving some trick skiers empty-handed with wakes that
have all but disappeared. In that vein, Correct Craft’s Ski
Nautique 196 TSC2 hull — largely designed with input from

Nautique, the wakeboarding innovations can definitely be useful for
trick skiing . We certainly can’t find a trick skier out
there who would complain about bigger wakes or more time to
Speaking of increased hang time, the Ski Nautique 196 with
Spyder Tower totally stokes the ski fliers. For years, jumpers have
been stuck between the 200- and 220-foot mark. By lengthening the
jump rope from 75 feet to 105 feet and raising the rope from the
traditional pylon to the Spyder Tower, the men’s current
ski-fly record of 299 feet is likely to fall soon. A handful of
women are now flying more than 200 feet as well.
So, if you’re a three-event die-hard, why sacrifice
performance in any event? Check out the Ski Nautique 196 with
