Ski Nautique 206 Limited
Recommendation: Hard-core ski
If you want the outstanding world-class skiing performance of the Ski Nautique 196, but you also need an open bow, Correct Craft has the 206. That front seating and an additional 13 inches in length are its main differences from the 196.
Those design tweaks make this version a little more family friendly. Kids can hang out in the bow, which has a removable filler cushion, a 12-volt plug-in and a dual-access cooler in the walk-through. There's also a new hinged flip-down observer's seat.
The helm meets the driver's needs, from the throttle knob and armrest at the ready to the adjustable seat. Storage is under the passenger seat and in the lockable trunk, the gunwale netting and the lockable ski compartment. The Limited package comes with keyless ignition, serial Faria gauges, Clarion stereo and more. Share it all with more than just your skiing partner.
The 206 has the TSC2 hull, slightly stretched from the one on the closed-bow 196, to soften wakes to buttery perfection. From long-line slalom through world-record line lengths, this baby is tournament-ready for your personal best. The tracking and throttle response are outstanding, too. The 206 holds a straight boat path with ease, even with an aggressive shortline skier pulling side to side. The responsiveness and handling are impressive in glassy conditions, through chop and in power turns. It's a ski boat that can take you from good to great.
-The open bow and a little extra length differentiate this from the remarkable 196 version.
-The TSC2 hull produces among the finest slalom wakes in the industry.
-The observer's seat folds down for a nonskid path to the bow.
-Both the ski locker and the rear trunk are lockable.
-Keyless ignition and a Clarion stereo are among the upgrades that come with the Limited package.
-Dual gas fill, dual-access cooler and dual pull-out cleats are all “two good.”
