Helm Command Knob

Nautique makes it possible for you to control everything on your Nautique wakeboard boat in Lewisville, without even lifting a finger! Nautique models come equipped with a Helm Command Knob that lets you control all the features on your LINC Panoray Touchscreen without moving a muscle. Adjust rider settings, check engine vitals, play music, and so much more, all while driving the boat.

 

User Profiles

Nautique wakeboard boats give you the ability to give each rider a tailored ride, fully customized to his or her preferences. Better yet – you can save those preferences in the LINC Panoray Touchscreen.

3 Reasons Buying a Pre-Owned Boat Might Save You Money

Is a boat at the top of your holiday wish list?

 

If so, now is a good time to begin your search for the perfect wakeboard, wakesurf, or ski boat! While Buxton Marine specializes in beautiful new Nautique boats, we also have a wide selection of pre-owned boats in Dallas, Texas from Nautique, Mastercraft, Tige, Supra, and more. Before you buy, consider the reasons buying pre-owned might just save you money:

 

Same Features. Lower Prices.

Think of it like buying a new or pre-owned vehicle. Sure, this year’s model is the latest and greatest, but last year’s model might also have all the same bells and whistles, just at a lower cost. Even better, that model from last year might have after market customizations that raise its value – and again – you might be able to get all of that for less that the cost of a new one.

 

Extras Galore.

Not only might a pre-owned boat have after-market customizations that would cost a fortune to add, they might also have extras included like life jackets, emergency equipment, flags, flares, and more. Add up every item that comes with the boat and assign a cost to it to determine how much more you would have to spend with a new boat to get the same amenities.

 

Check Maintenance Records.

Just because a boat is X amount of years old doesn’t mean all of the components are that old! Ask to see the maintenance records if possible to see if any of the components are new or in like-new condition from a recent replacement. It’s like getting a new Dallas boat for less!

 

If you are considering a pre-owned boat, then give us a call at Buxton Marine today! Our knowledgeable sales staff has a large inventory of boats, and if we don’t have what you’re looking for, we can find it! We are experts in wakeboard boats in Texas and we can’t wait to help you find the boat of your dreams.

 

Good times ahead!

Wakeboarding Tips: How to Make it Look Easy

Wakeboarding is just one of those things that comes easier to some than others. We’ve seen lots of people just pop up on a wakeboard with little technique, and then others consistently struggle.

 

Regardless of your skill level or aptitude for wakeboarding, here are a few wakeboarding tips from Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas to help you make it look easy:

 

Squat in the Water.

As you’re waiting to be pulled up, get your body as close to the board as you can in a squatting position. The closer your center-of-gravity is to the water and the board, the easier it will be for you to balance as the boat pulls you up. Once up, then you can start to stand.

 

Determine Which Foot Should be in Front.

If you have trouble getting up on the wakeboard, another one of our wakeboarding tips is to simply switch your foot position and put the other foot out front. So if you’ve been trying to swing the board around with the right foot out front, try shifting to the left instead. Sometimes the answer is just this simple!

 

Ask the Driver to Go Slow.

Many inexperienced drivers think “faster is better.” This is not the case! One of our wakeboarding tips is to make sure you are going within 14-18 mph, as to help the wakeboarder gain stability.

Use a Shorter Rope.

Sometimes slack in the rope can be hard for a new rider to manage. Try using a shorter rope – maybe one that’s 20’ behind the boat – to help the wakeboader.

 

Relax.

This is going to be fun! Now just make sure you’re being pulled behind a Nautique for the best ride on the market. Good times ahead! Call Buxton Marine today to take a test-drive on one of our beautiful Nautique models available now at our Nautique showroom in Lewisville, Texas or Long Cove Marina.

Boat Selling Tips: Follow these 4 Tips to Get it Sold

You’ve been into the dealership and have an eye on a brand new Nautique wakeboard boat. You’re ready to buy, but there is one small problem – you haven’t sold your old boat yet!

 

If you’re planning to sell your wakesurf, waterski, or wakeboard boat in the near future, plan to use these boat selling tips from Buxton Marine Lewisville:

 

  1. Perform Maintenance

As a boat owner, it’s a good idea to keep logs of all maintenance and service done on your boat, exactly for times such as these. Potential buyers want to know that your boat is well taken care of before purchasing, so showing them service records can go a long way in securing the sale. Even if you don’t have the records handy, it’s a good idea to have your boat serviced to make sure all current maintenance is performed and you can confidently tell a prospective buyer everything is in good working condition.

 

  1. Deep Clean

We’re talking deep clean beyond what you think is necessary. Potential buyers are going to open and look in everything nook and cranny in the boat; don’t let them find spills, dirt, and mold. This just gives the illusion that your boat is not well maintained, casting doubts on whether or not it’s a good buy.

 

  1. Stage the Boat

Think of your boat as you would a home for sale. Look at it with fresh eyes, as if you’re the buyer. What is a turn-off? Are there storage compartments stuffed with gear? The best way to stage a boat is to take everything out, and then only neatly put back the things you plan to sell with the boat.

 

  1. Don’t Forget the Trailer

The trailer is part of the deal, so if it’s showing some signs of wear, spruce it up! Remove rust, repaint chipped paint, replace old chains and hooks, and don’t forget the tires! If there is maintenance to be done, go ahead and do it, as it will give a buyer peace-of-mind when making their boat purchase.

 

If you need any help getting your boat ready to sell, then visit Buxton Marine and let us help! Our service team can service your boat, and we can also offer advice on boat selling tips specific to your needs. After the boat is sold, visit Buxton Marine – the best boat dealer in Lewisville, Texas – for the latest Nautique models, along with pre-owned models from Correct Craft, Mastercraft, Supre, Tige, and more.

What Makes a Nautique Boat Worth the Price Tag?

At Buxton Marine – the #1 Nautique dealer in the country – we realize that Nautique boats are not cheap – but it’s for good reason. What makes a Nautique worth the price tag, you ask? Let’s talk about a few things that really set the Nautiques apart from the rest of the pack:

 

Powerful Engines

There is a reason the pros prefer Nautique. Each Nautique is built with a Pleasurecraft Marine Engine Company (PCM) engine that uses the latest in technology, along with 40 years of reliability testing, to create the best engine on the market. These guys have the art and science of engine building down and we’re delighted to have PCM engines in each and every Nautique we sell.

 

5 Year, Transferrable Warranty

Nautique stands behind its products and provides a customer service experience second-to-none with a 5 year, transferrable warranty. When you’re spending this much on a boat, you want 93 years of proven experience in the boating industry backing your boat purchase. Nautique has proven time and again that our customers come first and we want them to enjoy every aspect of their purchase without any regrets.

Nautique Surf System

If you love to wakesurf, then give the Nautique Surf System a try! Beautiful, perfectly formed waves appear at the touch of a button. Any lake or river is now a surfer’s playground. Just throw the rope in and enjoy the ride!

 

Quality Craftsmanship

No other manufacturer has the quality and craftsmanship that you get with each Nautique boat. Each part of your Nautique is handcrafted or hand-installed in Orlando, Florida. The innovative design of the boat allows for more convenience, all while quality you can trust. In fact, Nautique has an internal stringer system that keeps the ballasts under the floors vs. clogging up the storage areas, which actually improves the strength of the hull.

Lewisville Boat Maintenance: 4 Tips to Help Your Engine Last Longer

Most boat owners consider their boat – whether it’s a Nautique, MasterCraft, Supra, Tige, etc. – to be a valuable asset. And with the investment, comes the inevitable Lewisville boat maintenance.

 

Many customers at Buxton Marine ask us if routine maintenance is necessary, and the answer is certainly yes. It extends the life of your boat and helps your engine last longer. However, there are some simple things you can do on your own to prolong the life of your boat engine:

 

Get Out on the Lake!

This is an easy one! Sure, you might have seasons when it’s more difficult to do so, but running the engine is an essential – and simple – way to extend the life of your engine. When an engine sits cold for too long, the oil and lubricant drains off of the components, making everything a little sluggish. Just get out to the lake on a regular basis, and your engine will thank you.

 

Ease into It

We’re all in a hurry to get out on the lake, but be sure to idle your engine for a few minutes after cranking it to help the oil warm up. Warming the oil helps the engine run more smoothly, without any stress on the components. If you throttle it too soon while the engine is still cold, it just creates more stress that could leave lasting effects.

Visit Buxton Marine Lewisville – the #1 Nautique dealer – for all your boat maintenance needs!

Plan to Cruise the Lake

When your Nautique boat is in cruising speed, it’s in its sweet spot. The engine isn’t the least bit taxed and everything is humming along perfectly. When you spend an extended amount of time at full throttle, you may not immediately notice any effects because the hours of boat use are unaffected. However, it’s just common sense that hours on the lake that are at higher RPMs are going to produce more stress on the engine than hours that are at cruising speed. Your boat is designed to take the higher RPMs, just make sure you’re balancing that with time cruising.

 

Flush the Engine

We know it’s a pain, but routine Lewisville boat maintenance includes flushing the engine after each day out on the lake. This avoids corrosion from deposits in the water and helps keep everything clean.

 

Have more questions about Lewisville boat maintenance? Give Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas a call today! Our service team is happy to offer suggestions for prolonging the life of your investment, and as always, we’re happy to perform any boat maintenance you need.

Boat Storage Tips: What You Must Do as Summer Draws to an End

With Labor Day weekend behind us, it’s time to start thinking about pumpkins, football, and the holiday season. It’s hard to believe Fall is almost here!

 

At Buxton Marine Long Cove and Buxton Marine Lewisville, we hope you enjoyed the summer on your Nautique and wanted to give you some boat storage tips as you begin thinking about storing your boat for the Fall/Winter season:

 

Prep Now for Next Season

Don’t just store your boat – think about how you want to find your boat at the beginning of the boating season next year!

  • Make sure all exterior scratches or dings are repaired.
  • Research the best storage facilities to protect your boat during the off-season.
  • Get a professional boat winterization to make sure the engine and systems on-board are clean and ready to be stored.
  • Get a proper boat cover that will keep dust and debris off your boat while stored.

 

Deep Clean the Boat

Any stains, spills, or sitting water can lead to mildew, mold, and other issues when you’re ready to use your boat next season.

  • Take all of your cushions out, clean, and then store separately. It’s even smart to get a boat-specific vinyl protectant and treat the cushions and other upholstery with that as well.
  • Professionally clean all carpet on board.
  • Check each compartment below to make sure there are no oil spills that could cause damage.

 

Maintenance is Key

Once you’ve handled all the external and cosmetic cleaning, it’s important to use these boat storage tips to maintain the engine and components.

  • Carefully test all of the electronic components on the boat, and repair any issues before storing.
  • Change the oil before storing the boat.
  • Make sure the hull is properly supported during storage to prevent any cracking due to uneven weight.

 

If you aren’t sure where to start with preparing your boat for storage, call Buxton Marine Lewisville or Buxton Marine Long Cove today! Our service team will gladly get your boat ready for storage with our Lewisville boat winterization package, tailored to your boat and your needs. Call us today to set up an appointment!
