NAUTIQUE EMPLOYEES BUILD HOMES FOR FAMILIES ON APACHE RESERVATION
Earlier this week, twenty-four (24) Nautique employees traveled from their homes in Central Florida to San Carlos, AZ to spend a portion of their vacation building homes for needy families on the Apache Reservation.
Just 90 miles east of Phoenix, Nautique employees provided manual labor by installing doors, beams, windows and roofing for two homes which will be provided to needy Apache families. Nautique worked with the non-profit organization Amor Ministries to bring assistance to the Apache Reservation which has an unemployment rate significantly higher than the national average.
This is the fifth service trip Nautique employees have taken outside of the Central Florida in the past four years. The previous four trips have included two trips to Mexico to build homes for needy families, a trip to work at a center for homeless mothers in Nicaragua and last year’s trip to build beds for disadvantaged families in Guatemala.
This year’s service trip is in addition to significant community service conducted by Nautique employees in their home community of Central Florida. The company is planning another employee service trip in late September to Ethiopia.
“Every service trip we take is incredible and this year was no different,” stated Nautique President/CEO Bill Yeargin. “The kindness, dedication and hard work our Nautique employees give to benefit those less fortunate and make the world a better place is truly amazing and clearly demonstrates the depth of their caring. I was thrilled to join our team on this trip and am even more thrilled to be part of such an incredible group of people.” added Yeargin.

Just got back from a great week in Kiev, Ukraine where I competed at 2012 E&A European Wakeboard Championships. I am happy to say I took the Silver medal in the Junior Men division and I also got a Gold medal with the rest of the British riders in the Team Competition.
Nautique is excited to introduce the next generation wake boat that will forever change what the industry thought possible. The all-new Super Air Nautique G23 redefines what a wake boat can be.
Nautique’s designers, engineers and elite team of professional riders started with a clean slate and created a wake that gives every rider the opportunity to do things they only dreamed possible. The G23 features the all-new Nautique Configurable Running Surface (NCRS) which fine-tunes the hull surface under any condition using the latest technology in our Nautique LINC system. Every inch of the boat’s hull was designed to create a wake that will work for every level of riding, at any speed and line length without sacrificing a clean lip, long transitions and solid pop. Additionally, with over 2,800 lbs. of sub-floor internal ballast, the G23 offers you maximum ballast with maximum storage and a world class wake without the need for additional weight.
The styling and craftsmanship that has gone into designing the interior of this boat is unlike anything that has come before it. From the ergonomics of the seats to the functionality of the seating configurations, no stone was left unturned in designing every aspect of the fit and finish. The long list of new, innovative features in the G23 includes integrated, custom-designed navigation and docking light arrays with LED lights; unique bow design offering deep, comfortable seating; removable, in-floor transom cooler; the stylish, functional Flight Control Tower, dynamic, aggressive hull-side graphics and gel-coat pattern; reversible stern seat with convenient slide mechanism; signature Nau-Teak flooring throughout the boat; and much more. Plus, with more storage and seating options than any preceding Nautique model, the G23 is large enough to easily accommodate all of your friends and family for a day of fun on the lake.
“The revolutionary new Super Air Nautique G23 is a result of years of hard work by our elite team of athletes and Product Development team. The G23 will advance the wake industry in ways far beyond what anyone thought possible,” stated Nautique CEO Bill Yeargin. “Only Nautique, the company who brought the industry the first inboard towboat, the boat tower, internal ballast, GPS speed control and many other firsts could build a boat this innovative,” Yeargin added.
The Super Air Nautique G23 will kick off the wake season at the 2012 Nautique Wake Games in Orlando, FL, April 11-14.
Nautique had a visit yesterday from NASCAR driver and current Daytona 500 Champion, Trevor Bayne.
Bayne who is an avid wakeboarder and a fan of Nautique took time to stop by the world class headquarters before heading to Daytona for this weekend’s Coke Zero 400 race. During Bayne’s visit he took a factory tour, met with employees, and checked out his new Sublime Green Super Air Nautique 230.
“This was my first visit to the Nautique factory and the overall experience was amazing. From the personalized tour to meeting the team and seeing my brand new Super Air Nautique 230, it was a great experience,” commented Trevor Bayne. “I can’t wait to have my first set behind it!” added Bayne.
“It was very exciting to have rookie NASCAR sensation Trevor Bayne visit the factory and take time to meet with the Nautique team,” stated Nautique President/CEO Bill Yeargin. “It was obvious that Trevor is a big Nautique fan and our team enjoyed meeting him,” Yeargin added.
