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.

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!

New Skiing World Records Set Behind a Ski Nautique 200!

Want to waterski like the pros?!

 

Then the Ski Nautique 200 is the boat for you!

 

Buxton Marine – the best Nautique dealer in Texas – is excited to announce that no 1 – but 3 – new world records were recently set behind the Ski Nautique 200!

 

Nate Smith

Nate Smith was already the reining world record holder with 2.5 @ 43’ off, but he bested his own score this past May at the Swiss Pro Slalom Tournament with 3 @ 43’ off! When interviewed, Smith had this to say about his victory:

“Being able to practice behind the best boat in the world allows me to put up the best scores in the world. Nothing beats the Ski Nautique 200!”

Aliaksei Zharnasek

Trick skier Aliaksei Zharnasek also had a record setting day at the Swiss Pro Slalom Tournament. He put up a trick score of 12,610. Zharnasek is also a Nautique Team member and said that skiing behind the Ski Nautique 200 makes it easy since it’s simply the best. He has also won the World Championship 3 times.

 

Anna Gay

Another Nautique trick skier – Anna Gay – had a great day, setting the 3rd new world record of the day behind a Nautique boat. Her score was 10,880. She said being behind her Ski Nautique 200 made her feel at home, even when abroad. She’s been skiing since she was 4.

 

Probably equally as impressive, is that these were the 25th, 26th, and 27th ski records to be set behind a Ski Nautique 200, more records than any other boat!

Congratulations to these athletes on their accomplishments from Buxton Marine, the largest Nautique dealer in the world! If you want the best ski boat, then call Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas today and ask about the Ski Nautique 200. We sell boats all over Texas, the Southwest, and beyond.
