Nautique Brings you Boat Capacity Ratings You Can Trust

When shopping for a new wakeboard or wakesurf boat, it’s important to look for the sticker with the boat capacity ratings on it to ensure you are buying the right boat for your recreational needs.

 

Did you know that not all boating manufacturers account for ballast in their boat capacity numbers?

 

That’s a scary thought – especially when you bought the boat with the intention of using the ballast for wakesurfing or wakeboarding!

 

How Can Boat Capacity Standards Vary by Manufacturer?

It’s a common misconception that the U.S. Coast Guard regulates all boating capacity ratings, when in fact, it only regulates boats up to 19 ft. After that, the NMMA – or National Marine Manufacturers Association – develops boat capacity ratings for participating manufacturers using boat size, materials, depth, etc. to determine the appropriate number. The ABYC creates standards for boats over 26 ft.

 

While most manufacturers – like Nautique and manufacturers carried at Buxton Marine – are a part of this association, it’s very important to note that some are not. If a boating manufacturer is not a part of the NMMA, they do not have to build their boat to specific standards and can state any capacity and ballast numbers they choose. This is very important when it comes to ballast because the NMMA requires all factory-installed ballast to be reported and accounted for in the capacity. Some manufacturers choose to ship boats to dealers without the ballast included, which means a dealer installs it after-market. The problem with this is that the added ballast is not included in the final capacity rating on the sticker and could affect your safety and liability if something goes wrong.

The Bottom Line: When buying a new wakeboard boat in Texas, pay close attention to capacity and ballast numbers. You can always trust Buxton Marine and Nautique to sell only factory-installed ballasts, so there is no question as to how much weight the boat can hold. There is a reason the pros choose Nautique!!

Boat Buying Guide: 5 Things to Check Before Buying a Used Boat

Summer is here and it’s not too late to take advantage of a summer on the lake. But first, you’ve got to get a boat! If you’re new to boating, buying a used boat may be a great way to dip your toes into the waters of boat ownership. But not so fast! Before buying a used boat, be sure to check these 5 things:

 

  1. Trailer

Yes, the trailer is as much a part of the boat as the boat itself. If you’re hauling this boat to the lake every weekend, you want to know your trailer is in tip top condition. Inspect the wheels for signs of bearing grease or brake fluid leaks. Check the bunk for wear and tear. Don’t worry if you see a little rust; that’s completely normal.

 

  1. Cold Start

A cold start is simply cranking the engine for the first time in 24 hours. Be sure your boat dealer gives you the opportunity to run the boat with a cold start before purchase so that you can listen for any clanking, clicking, or humming noises that might occur upon cranking the engine. If you do hear noises, this is a sign of the oil pressure bleeding off in the engine or other engine issues.

 

  1. Engine Oil

Check the engine oil before buying a used boat by lifting the dipstick. The oil shouldn’t have any water separation (an indicator of head gasket problems), should be free of a strong gas smell, and should not be globby or gritty.

  1. Engine Hours

We all know the lower the engine miles, the better the boat. However, don’t take the screen’s reading at face value. Be sure to check the hours before test-driving the boat and then after driving the boat to make sure the odometer is in good working condition and accurately portraying the hours.

 

  1. Electronics

Don’t assume because some electronics work, that all the electronics will work. Check all buttons and switches before buying a used boat. If some work and some don’t, you might be looking at faulty electrical wiring.
