Best Boats on the Market: Super Air Nautique G23

Boating Magazine recently named Super Air Nautique G23 one of the best boats on the market and we could not agree more! Nautique makes the best boats for wakeboarding, wakesurfing, or any watersports you can think of! As the #1 Nautique dealer in the nation, we stand behind all of the Nautique products. Here are a few reasons we love the Super Air Nautique G23:


Epic Waves

The Super Air Nautique G23 utilizes best-in-class technology, as it creates the perfect waves with the Nautique Surf System. With the push of a button, you can make adjustments to the wave. Higher, shorter, longer – the choice is yours. Want to switch sides? No problem! No fiddling with ballast bags; Nautique makes the most epic waves for wakeboarding or wake surfing with zero hassle. There is a reason that pro surfers and wakeboarders prefer Nautique over the competition!

Best-in-Class Technology

Best-in-class technology is what truly sets the Nautique G23 above the rest! Not only does the beautiful touchscreen display show you the Nautique Surf System controls, but it lets you control just about anything with the touch of a button. We love the new steering assist – perfect for a boat the size of the G23 – and the rear camera view that is now mounted on the tower for the 2018 model year. The competition can’t touch the intuitive features available on the Nautique G23! Not to mention, the entire interior of the 2018 Nautique model is absolutely gorgeous.


If you’re interested in a new boat for the 2018 boating season, then you must check out the best boats on the market at Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas! Our staff is knowledgeable on all things Nautique and can explain why it’s a great investment and will be tons of fun for your family and friends. We’ll even take you out for a test-drive so you can see the beauty of the G23 in action.


Good times ahead!

Don’t Miss the Dallas Boat Expo: Feb. 2-4 and 8-11!

If you’ve even considered buying a boat this spring or summer, then do yourself a favor and visit Buxton Marine at the Dallas Boat Expo – Feb. 2-4 and Feb 8-11!


The Dallas Boat Expo is a great chance to see many of our top Nautique models up close and personal. You’ll have a chance to walk the boats, see the features, and talk with our knowledgeable sales staff. Here are a few questions we’d recommend asking as you walk around and visit with the various vendors at the Dallas Boat Show:

How is the Boat Constructed?

Nautique stands behind each of its boats and the quality craftsmanship that goes into each and every model built. Be sure to ask questions about the construction of the boat, with particular focus on the hull. Asking each manufacturer these same questions should help distinguish the best boats on the market.


How Does the Ballast Work?

Planning to do a lot of watersports with your brand new boat? Then be sure to ask about the ballasts. Nautique boats produce amazing waves with our factory ballast and nothing more, but other models require additional ballasts, special operating instructions, etc.


Which Watersports is the Boat Best For?

Before attending the Dallas Boat Expo, think about how you plan to use the boat. Wakesurfing? Wakeboarding? Tubing? Skiing? While we can’t speak for every manufacturer, we can say that Nautique puts lots of thought into each model, and each model is perfectly designed with different sporting needs in mind. Talk to our sales staff to understand which model would be right for you!


Where is the Storage?

While usually an after thought, storage in your new wakesurf, wakeboard, or ski boat is important! Think about what toys you’ll be on the lake with and where to store them. Look for roomy compartments and hidden storage that maximizes the space in the boat design.


These are just a few of the important questions to ask as you make the rounds at the Dallas Boat Expo! Be sure to come see us at our Buxton Marine booth. We are proud to be the best boat dealer in Dallas, Texas!

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.



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.

Love Watersports? Check out the Super Air Nautique GS20

As you begin the hunt for a new boat this offseason, chances are, you’ll find many new boats for sale with gadgets and gear made for wakesurfing. Wakesurfing is definitely the most popular watersport right now because it’s so easy to learn, easy on the body, and fun for all ages, but let’s not forget about the fun that can be had wakeboarding, skiing, and even tubing. If you want a boat that can do it all, then the Super Air Nautique GS20 is worth checking out!


Smart Configuration

You may be thinking to youelf, I cannot buy a new boat in Lewisville, Texas that is only 20’ long! What we can say about the Super Air Nautique GS20 is not to judge until you’ve tried it! Nautique does an excellent job of utilizing all of the space in the boat, making it feel spacious and well organized.


Smart Storage

As we just said, the 20’ Nautique GS20 feels more spacious than it should for its size, thanks to smart storage. Every last inch of the boat is designed for storing gear, including compartments in the Bimini for surfboards. The tower can even fold down lower than a windshield, making it easy to get under bridges, or even in tight storage spaces.

Largest Touchscreen in the Industry

The driver is in control with Nautique’s LINC touchscreen control panel, the largest in the industry. You’ve also got control at the helm, along with a clear line of sight of the rider at all times thanks to cleverly designed rope positioning. It’s the small details that shine on the Super Air Nautique GS20.


Nautique Surf Select System

Not only will the driver feel the control, but the Nautique Surf Select System gives plenty of power to the rider! The rider can control the wake, speed, and even the radio – all with just the touch of a button! Pretty cool.

4 Common Boat Anchoring Mistakes to Avoid – Buxton Marine Lewisville

If you’re spending a day at the lake, chances are you’ll be spending some time anchored in the water. Maybe you’re taking a quick break to let kids jump out and swim or maybe you’re anchored near a beach for lunch. Whatever your reason, you’ll want to make sure you’re anchoring properly by avoiding these 4 common boat anchoring mistakes:


  1. Anchoring in the Wrong Spot


First things first, you need to find a good spot to anchor if you are going to avoid boat anchoring mistakes. Don’t attempt to anchor down right next to another boat where the wind may blow one boat into another. Also, it goes without saying that you shouldn’t drop anchor on top of another anchor. Look for an area that is clear of other boats, but also shielded from waves and wind.


  1. Insufficient Anchor Rode


Anchor rode is the rope that is attached to the boat and the anchor. Before you drop your anchor, make sure that you have enough anchor rode available for the scope and that the rode is clear of all knots and tangles.


  1. Insufficient Scope


This goes along with rode, but scope is the calculated ratio of distance from the bottom of the lake to the top of the bow, multiplied times how much rode you need. Generally you want a 3:1 or 5:1 scope. You can’t just assume because the lake is 10 ft deep, that you only need 12-15 ft of anchor rode. It’s just not enough.


  1. Not Securing the Anchor Properly


First of all, the anchor should always be attached to your boat before dropping it. (You knew that already, right?!) After double-checking it, slowly ease the anchor over the bow of the boat – never the stern! Be sure to account for some drag as the anchor secures in the bottom of the lake. If you aren’t sure if your anchor is secure, you can always very slowly put your boat in reverse to test the anchor’s strength. If you’re caught, then you’re ready to go!
