  • Test surfed 210 and x10 today

    Both great boats. I really liked the layout of the x10, but I really liked the surf set up of the 210. Wave was very close. Both steep and long wave, but x10 needed a lot more weight than the 210. Both within 5k of each other. Tough choice, leaning a bit 210 but I've always been a MC guy. I'm thinking that my brand loyalty is making my choice tougher than it should be for my family's needs. They handled well in rough water. The MC finishing was a bit better IMO and I'm very comfortable with MC controls.

    Dealer did confirm a G21 coming this year. I just don't have the $ for one, nor the space or boatlift capacity. They figured it to be in the 5400 dry weight and 115K CDN range.

      Plus, with Martin Motorsports there now, you know you've got a dealer with a great service track record.

        Stick with what feels right - go with the MC. You can always add weight, but you can't add fit/finish. The new MC dash and interiors are the best on the market right now, IMO.

            the new cc 210 have been added to their website. looks pretty close to there last 210.

            don't take this wrong, I know the wake and quality of the boat is important but I just cannot get on board with the looks of all nautique boats.

            my next boat will either be a x25, x30 or for surf only a centurion enzo. and I doubt the enzo will happen.

              Two great boats. This is the definition of a first world problem. I haven't been in the new model of either, but recent models are both amazing. Sacrilege I know, but boats of very comparable quality. Check with the family, they'll tell you which one.

                yeah its a 2014 210. I really liked them both. I guess I can't go wrong really. The CC dealer is very good though. How much weight does that actually have for you guys. Dealer vs dealer, hands down the CC

                    The dealer is huge to me. The warranty is only as good as the dealer doing the service.

                      I deal with Martin in Edmonton. Maybe because my boat it 14 years old, but I find them brutal. I know much more about my XStar trough this forum alone than they do. I stopped going there for the simple reason that it's always painful to get help. I buy all my parts online after reading forum threads rather than going to Martin Motor Sports. My next boat will be a Nautique simply because Wizard Lake Marine is better.

                          Hey this prob doesn't carry much weight being I'm a Nautique guy but I can't believe anyone would buy a boat that didn't have the ability to switch sides without moving people and ballast from one side to the other. Comparing a boat that has NSS or even Surfgate and one that doesn't should be a no brainer for you! If surfing is important you will love the ability to not have to tip your boat over or not have to make all the regular riders go first then take 20mins to rearrange the boat to let the goofy person go! And driving a heavily weighted tipped over boat isn't fun for the passengers nor the driver.

                          Also they seriously said the g21 is gonna be 5400lbs? That's the same weight as the g23?

                            The newly redesigned 210 really changed this boats appeal. The X10 would have beat out the 13 210 I think purely on storage alone. The redesign really boosted the 210 storage. The 08-12 interior feel and storage in the 210 always seemed sub par for a boat of its size and caliber. the 2014 redesign made the boat much deeper which gives it a way more of a modern wakeboat feel. The addition in the freeboard and seat height is very noticeable. Not sold on their new side ballast tanks instead of the wedge as of yet. Now you can't get boards in the rear compartments. The 210 has a sleeper of a surfwave with very little weight, but before the redesign for 2014 it really still had the old school, low profile, slim storage feet to it. Good luck with the choice. Both boats are gonna be killer no matter which route you go.

                              Of the two I would probably go with the 210 if surfing is big for you.

                              However, consider this. If the G21 does come out next year, the retail/resale value of the 210 is going to plummet. It will no longer be the flagship 21 ft Nautique, and will be price accordingly, especially for a brand that goes with the premium image.
