MasterCraft Wins Coveted NMMA Innovation Award for the X23,

Its Revolutionary New Surf-Centric Boat

VONORE, Tenn. (Feb. 17, 2015) – MasterCraft Boats was honored with yet another Innovation Award from the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) for its revolutionary X23, the first boat designed from the fins up specifically for surfing. The NMMA works in partnership with Boat Writers International to recognize manufacturers and suppliers who introduce new, innovative products to the marine industry with a direct benefit to the consumer.

Awarded in advance of the Miami International Boat Show, this year’s field consisted of a record number of products for consideration with only seventeen finalists being selected for their technological advancements and laudable contributions to the boating community. MasterCraft has been a perennial winner of the award walking away with two NMMA Innovation Awards in 2014 for a total of five awards over the last six years.

“MasterCraft implemented a company-wide charter this past year to build the best surf boat on the market,” said Terry McNew, President and CEO of MasterCraft Boat Company. “Today’s recognition by the NMMA and Boat Writers International serves as validation from the most trusted voices in the industry that we have achieved this goal.”

The judges recognized the X23’s groundbreaking hull design and compartmentalized ballasts capable of delivering the longest, most customizable waves on the market. The boat introduces an entirely new zone for surfing, nearly twenty feet of curling barrel, with options for both goofy and regular riders.

The X23 is equipped with MasterCraft’s Gen 2 Surf System, itself a winner of an NMMA Innovation Award in 2014, providing perfectly shaped, chest high waves at the touch of a button.

The X23 is part of MasterCraft’s legendary lineup of towboats, all frontrunners in their own right. The ProStar, recipient of the 2014 NMMA Innovation Award, continues to set the industry standard in competitive waterskiing while the award-winning XStar continues to dominate the competitive wakeboarding scene. Together, these three flagship boats deliver MasterCraft’s unmatched performance across all watersports categories - from waterskiing, to wakeboarding or wakesurfing.

2015 MasterCraft NXT  |

Friday, March 21, 2014
 

The NXT is a 20-foot MasterCraft designed and built in the same factory as our legendary line of premium towboats. Packed with performance in a product that will hold its value, we're excited to open up the MasterCraft brand to a whole new audience. This is for the customer who has always wanted a MasterCraft but believed it was just out of reach...now there's no reason to settle for a second-class ride. And those who are frustrated with the limited possibilities with their I/O boat, take heart.

The NXT is the perfect introduction to a variety of action, including wakesurfing. Nicely equipped at $50,000 USD, this is the most accessible MasterCraft ever. With good credit, a sample payment is about $400 a month.

MasterCraft X46  |

Saturday, March 15, 2014

                                                   

Have you ever gotten into a luxury car?  Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, Audi?   The interior seems to just flow around you and all the controls are right at your fingertips.  That’s the way the 2014 MasterCraft X46 feels.  As soon as you get into the X46 you feel the craftsman ship, seats that are ergonomically designed for comfort.  The rear seat that is reversible to allow more people to watch the action behind the boat or sit comfortably forward on your way to you hidden oasis.  The sophisticated control systems allow the driver to control the Gen2 wake system and all the other options with the touch screen.  MasterCraft has also engineered auto launch and leveling into the system, so when you throttle up the nose will not rise and no matter how you load the boat it will be level.  This is just a fraction of what sets MasterCraft apart from the competition.  But don’t take my word for it, give us a call to set up a test drive.

MasterCraft introduces Gen2 surf system  |

Saturday, February 15, 2014
WHAT IT IS:
IT’S A SYSTEM NOT A DEVICE. 
The Gen 2 Surf System is the industry’s first customizable surf system, and you can only get it on MasterCraft 
models. We are the only company that doesn’t have a one-size-fits-all solution (we’re looking at you, Surf Gate.
And you too, NSS). 
Gen 2 consists of 4 pillars: The individual boat hull, the ballast system (including tanks, plumbing and placement), 
software and a touchscreen interface to control it all, and a wake shaping device beneath the transom that 
sculpts the wave. 
WHY IT’S BETTER: CUSTOMIZED NOT COMPROMISED. 
MasterCraft has the widest range of surf-capable boats on the market. And each of those models has a Gen 2 Surf 
System that is calibrated to its unique characteristics. This ensures a consistently shreddable wave regardless of 
which boat you’re behind. And that wave is also adjustable so regardless of boat model, board type, port or 
starboard wave, all ability levels get the best experience. 
FILL IT AND FORGET IT. 
Our touchscreen controlled surf system is super easy to use. The ballast tanks are filled once and that’s it—the boat 
does the math and dials in the perfect wave every time. No moving people around. No emptying and refilling tanks. 
SURF SMARTER NOT HARDER. 
Let the other guys deal with prop torque and high-RPM issues from dragging a plate through the lake. MasterCraft’s 
Gen 2 Surf System puts less strain on the engine. This means the boat drives better because there’s less yaw, and 
no exhaust or steam clouds to surf through. Not to mention the Gen 2 System delivers better fuel efficiency, which 
means more time on the water. 
THE WAVE EVERYONE’S RAVING ABOUT. 
The wave quality is unbeatable. Ride it and you’ll find we destroy the competitors in everything that counts: our wake 
is cleaner, bigger, longer and has more push at all lengths. And the amazing experience doesn’t stop at the swim 
platform…you’re riding in a MasterCraft.
