We really like the fact that this Super Air Nautique 220 isn’t just the 210 with an extra foot in length — or the 230 with a foot less. The wake characteristics are different, and the interior is definitely unique. Most noticeable are the facing seats in the rear part of the main lounge as well as opposite the observer’s bench. Between these areas are special consoles that flip up to offer very accessible storage and a place for a trash can (we wish more boats had this). But it does share some cool touches of other Nautique wakeboard boats, like cooler access from the bow walk-through and rear seats that flip up for trunk access while people are lounging on the sun pad, which itself has a special manta ray-esque design. It adds up to a boat unlike anything else.
We liked this wild offset winged-animal look even before we found out it was the family crest of Correct Craft’s owners, the Meloons.
To get the ballast, tower, racks, stereo, new Zero-Off cruise control and more, this upgrade package is a must-have in our eyes.

The Super Air Nautique 220’s wake is a lot more vertical than the 230’s, but not as steep as the 210’s. It’s more steep than mellow. You don’t get caught up in it, you just get more vert toward the top, but you can still charge it.
Overall: A good size for this boat with stock ballast, creating peaky wakes for a lot of moves.

Turns: Again, our drivers felt confident making the turns to pick up fallen riders and to maneuver for docking.

Vibration: Just like the 210 and 230, this 220 stayed super solid as we turned and plowed through the double-ups.
