Ok guys, so I am suppose to go sign on the dotted line for my new Nautic Star. I am buying that first Shallow Bay version of the 2110se posted in the boating section.

My question is this, I know there are a few guys on here that dont seem to be very positive about Nautic Star and im wondering why?

Is there something in the same price range (low 40s rigged out) that I should be considering?

ive fished in the 21, 22 and 24..... they are all great! no compalints. great, ride, nice layout, plenty of room & storage.

go ride and fish in the boat, bring ur family..... let them have the input......

our opinions are just that..... opinions...... it aint our money, our family in the boat and our decision..... if u and the family like the boat..... BUY IT!!.
but if u find things that u dont like and will b a potention issue, concern..... keep lookin.
thats my .02

Just sold my 07 2110 with f150. Was never impressed with the ride of the boat in any chop, always wanted more power, rig is pretty narrow, etc. Nautic star is not top of the line and orginal owners feel that pain on resale. I bought mine used last year, i rigged it out with everything you can think of before i ended up selling couple months ago. sold for 22.5. I think your better off buying a used one if thats the rig you really want and see how that goes. some love the 2110 and some dont, if you fall in as one of the ones that dont, then your losses will be much easier to swallow. just my thoughts

I just wanted to make sure there wasnt some kind of issues with the boats that I hadnt read about. I am having a little bit of an issue with the fact that the 150 is the highest rated motor you can put on it but other than that I like the boat. The negative comments I have seen on here in the past are kind of making me a little gun shy all of a sudden. I am wondering if that extra money for the puerbay 2200 isnt so bad after all.

The 21 is a more narrow boat then the 22 & 24. Which effects the ride and stability.

PUREBAY2200
07-11-2012, 03:59 PM
I had to purebay 2200; the first edition.
Lots of electrical , plumbing issues.
From what I've herd all the kinks were worked out. I think the fact that I bought the boat from a horrible dealer n baton rouge magnified all the complivations!!
But the ride was awesome!! The speed with a 225 was 62.
Layout was great .

The blackjack listed on here would b a great purchase!!
Can't go wrong with a blackjack!!

If 40k is your budget, I'd buy the fully lined Frontier 2104 with a 200. It has the jump seats. Very very close the the blackjack. But again thats just MY opinion. I don't know anything about the new shallow water Nautic you are speaking of.

IMO if you are gun shy then don't make the purchase. The last thing you want is buyer's remorse on a purchase that big...

Agree with Chas on this. The new frontiers are very nice and are cheaper. I was impressed with the new fully lined boat. I know several people who just switched over to them and love them.

We have the 21' and wouldn't trade it for anything. Went to Bird Island at Grand Isle and on the way back a bad storm kicked up. That boat took the waves really well!! I have a bad back so I need to have a smooth ride and that is definitely it. It's all a matter of opinion. Get what you and your family are comfortable in. That's waht's most important. Good luck!!

Is it worth going with the 200 over the 150 on the 21 frontier.... For cruising not top end.
Say 35-40 mph

i know when i repowered my purebay, i went from a 150 2 stroke to a 225 4 stroke, and i could run 45 mph with the bigger engine and burn the same as i did at 35 with the smaller engine.
i hated that 2 stroke 150..... and it went thru oil like crazy.

getonfish, I feel your pain. I went through the same senario, I have a 2110 on order.

I have been trolling the classifieds on 5 different websites for 3 years looking at boats as well as reading posts etc. With some exceptions, Nautic Stars dont stay on the market long and bring a fair price. I have talked to many dealers, mechanics, and people in the industry and have not had one time where anyone came back with anything negative on Nautic Star. Only issue is manufacturing lead time, they cant make them fast enough. If it is not in stock you are 6-8 weeks out.

when I saw the layout of the 2110 SE it was time. It had the layout I had been looking for. Only change is I am going with the new Merc fourstroke 150 instead of the Yamaha. Only problem now is that I have to wait until Aug 15th to know if I made the right decision. :spineyes:

Just remember, its only money, you will make more. Good luck!

I guide out of the 2110 and dont have any issues ,other than it being somewhat small for 4 adults to fish . The only time we get wet is in a serious cross chop,which you would get wet in any other boat out there. For a family boat I dont think you can go wrong with the 2110. I currently have a 24 Nautic Star on order ,only because I need the extra room for clients.

Thanks for the input guys, I talked to Kyle at LAM this afternoon. I'm going to check out the frontier 2104 just to see what it has to offer before I pull the trigger on anything.

As far as motor size goes you can look at a lot of boats that have 2 different motor options on the yamaha performance bulletin site. All of the bigger motors suck down more gas at all speeds.

Kyle hints that the 175 Zuk is faster on the Frontier than the 200 and about 2k cheaper. Almost same HP on a lighter block.

Kyle told me the same thing today. I really liked the 2104 frontier. I will have to order it and it will be about 4 weeks. On the bright side they are willing to put the new 2013 Blackjack upholstery in it.

I also went by and looked at the NS again just so they would both be fresh on my mind only to find out that it has already been rigged up to my specs and is ready to go. OOPS hope I dont piss anyone off if I decide over the next couple of days to go the other way.

I can give you some info,,,my good friend owned and just sold a 22ft. He had to send it back 2 times to the factory due to transom seperation! and both times tehy didnt fix it, only fixed all the spider cracked gel coat. So the last time he brought it to a fiberglass shop locally and they fixed it...

Fiberglass guy said it delaminated caused they didnt do it right from teh get go...also,,,he claimed it to be a very wet and rough ride...

I did order the Frontier. It is Grey interior, grey hull with the black sides. The upholstery will be the new 2013 Blackjack 2 tone. Per Kyles recommendation I paired it with the 175 instead of the 200 Zuke. He said the performance is very similar and I saved 2500 bucks. Completely rigged out to the teeth it still came in $1000 under the Nautic Star.

Not a chance on a new one but I'm sure there will be a few used ones that you might be able to find a deal on due to people upgrading.

If you call Kyle at Lake Area Marine, (337)433-7019 you might be surprised at the price you can get a new one for.

Who is K2's biggest dealer?

Kyle told me he had been talking to you about a new boat lately. What are you waiting for?


Gotta sell my 210 first. Been looking at the 2104 w 175 Zuk or 200 SHO.

Chas, what kind of performance they talking about???

Well Kyle said the 175 was faster than the 200 on the bluewaves they tested. Lighter block w a diff injection w basically same HP. Says it has to be faster on the Frontier too. He's thinking upper 50's (58) w 175.

BSoileau re propped his again and hit 56 w his Zuk 150. I'm fixing to reprop mine too to see how much a diff it makes..

That better gear ratio should help the 175 also.

I think the Frontier will be both easier to sell from a resale standpoint and also depreciate less as well. Remember, it's important to think of resale a few years down the road because if a boat won't hold value well you will take a beating and you will have fewer dollars available to put towards a new boat.

the one I test drove felt like it had plenty of power for your needs. The 3 across seating is sure nice too.

I had already driven the 2110 before settling on the Frontier. Both great boats but the Frontier won it out for me. So yes lol.

Kyle called today and said it should be ready for pick up by the 15th.

Frontier is a much bigger 21ft boat and can be had as little as 30k or 40k rigged with EVERYTHING. It compares closer to the Nauticstar 2200 as far as size.

Stepped hull for ride just like on offshore boats

That's gotta do nothing for ride, eh? Looks more like it would create lift for planing, dad told me never to assume though.

Interesting

That is correct. It is just to help get the boat on plane. They are really nice boats.

I have a 2010 NauticStar 2200TE with a 225 Yamaha...first boat I've ever owned. It has been nothing but a pleasure. Lots of room, handles rough water with ease....just push the nose down with the trim tabs and let it eat! It can get shallow enough to wadefish in the Lower Laguna Madre in South Texas. I can get up in 24 inches of water with 6 guys, wade gear, coolers, full tank of gas. I do not have a jackplate on it either. Family loves it. If I was buying another boat it would be a Shallow Sport or a Mowdy only to get into really skinny water (8-10 inches) which you really don't need to be in anyway!

There hull itself is the same design they had for years. They just added the cutout and transom sponsons with the XTS models. It makes a big difference in holeshot and bow lift. We have a 244 with a 300 yamaha digital shift on the showroom at redmonds marine,they are a sweet ride.

Guy in my neighborhood just picked one up in the same color scheme as my boat. Goldish tan up too, and white everywhere else. Sharp looking rig
