At first glance, the all-new Super Air Nautique 220 Team Edition looks like your typical hard-core wakeboard boat. All the telltale signs are there — a beefy swoop tower, cutting-edge graphics and 950 pounds of factory ballast. But take a closer look and you’ll see a host of finer points that make this wakeboard boat a unique addition to Correct Craft’s 2006 line.
As we checked out the 220, we were impressed by all the thoughtful touches worked so seamlessly into the interior. From the rear-seating configuration with three different positions to the hidden removable trash can in the cockpit, every bit of this 22-footer houses a useful feature. The 220 is all about function and efficiency, and it takes the phrase “attention to detail” to a whole new level.
As soon as we saw the new 220, we could tell it was designed with wakeboarders in mind, so we were stoked for a chance to ride behind it. The wakes behind this powerhouse definitely lived up to our expectations. With nice progressions that build up into definite peaks and long, progressive ramps, the Air 220′s wakes boast the best shape we’ve seen from the Nautique lineup. The 950-pound ballast tank was easy to use and had remarkably quick fill and drain times. Overall, we were impressed with the 220′s versatile performance. The wakes were suitable for our advanced riders, but we’re sure beginners would feel comfortable riding them as well.
“Wow!” was the word of choice from our testers after they got behind the wheel of the new Super Air Nautique 220. This boat is fun to drive. While your friends will be loving the wakes behind the 220, you’ll be loving its handling performance. With the robust power of the optional PCM ZR6 engine, we put this ride through its paces. We buried the throttle and powered through tight turns and aggressive maneuvers, and the boat didn’t hesitate. It held straight tracking with a rider in tow and had no trouble cruising through chop, remaining solid in rough conditions. With the shift of a lever near the throttle, the standard Hydro-Gate provided instant changes to the boat’s running attitude, customizing the wakes to our testers’ satisfaction.
We had almost as much fun on board the 220 as we did riding behind it. With thoughtful touches, massive storage and convenient features worked perfectly into every inch of this boat’s interior, the Super Air Nautique 220 is an extremely comfortable boat to chill in between sessions. Under-seat storage that communicates from bow to stern ensures there’s plenty of room for all your gear, and the new convenient cargo net provides an additional place to quickly stash more boards and vests within easy reach. Features such as the removable hidden trash can add another touch of luxury to the interior, while the multiple seating configurations make sure space is used efficiently.
