The Ski Nautique. My favorite ski boat of all time. Here’s what you need to picture: The sun is right on the treetops. The lake is glass. You’re slicing effortless arcs back and forth across a perfect wake, every turn connected in one fluid string. The families gathering around post-dinner fires dotting the shoreline watch in approval and say things like, “That middle-aged guy sure is a beautiful skier. His mustache is so full. And his wife’s so pretty. Even his dog is strikingly handsome. What kind of boat is that? A Ski Nautique? Oh! It’s so nice!” That’s what your summer nights can be like if you buy this 1988 Correct Craft Ski Nautique 2001. It only has 637 hours on it. Even the seller’s friends are sad he’s giving it up. Let his loss be your gain. It lives in Milwaukee and it’s listed at $8,850 on CraigsList.
