Wakeboard Boat Review

The X30 is a top seller at MasterCraft for a reason: It does everything at a high level and it's user friendly. Buyers who demand a more traditional look in a bigger footprint with fairly even driving, surfing and wakeboarding performance stats should put the X30 at the top of the list.

The X30’s dash is one of MasterCraft’s best layouts. The digital screen sits off to the side, and three massive analog gauges are front and center where you can easily glance down at them while underway. Besides the functionality, it keeps with the more traditional feel of the X30. Despite its traditional mantra, seating goes beyond plain benches; there are contoured seats in the back and the convertible rear bench-style seat transitions quickly and easily between three different positions. Despite all the creature comforts, the X30’s performance is the true standout. This boat surfs as well as it wakeboards and as well as it drives, and that’s something very few boats can match. The Gen 2 surf system is tailored to each hull to create a symmetrical wave without moving weight from side to side, which brings surf performance to its utmost potential.
