The Ski Nautique 196 is a true icon, with a look of power, drive and commitment just like those who ski behind it like skiing legend Andy Mapple. It is the official towboat for the IWSF World Water Ski Championships and has pulled more skiers to the top than all others combined. In short, it is the single most hard-core ski boat on the water.
The Ski Nautique 196 is the only boat in the world that combines a closed bow with our exclusive TSC3TM hull and GPS-based Zero Off speed control, creating what pros and serious skiers consider the ideal wake and pull. Our patented Hydro-GateTM lets you seamlessly change the wake signature right from the cockpit. With powder-soft slalom wakes, a refined trick table and a powerful jump pull, this is the ultimate, dedicated three-event ski boat.
