MasterCraft Boats CSX 265 2009

January 1, 2009

OVERVIEW

An extension of MasterCraft’s groundbreaking center-console water-sports boat, the CSX 220, the all-new MasterCraft CSX 265 takes the idea of the über-crossover  wakeboard boat to the next level. With its 120-gallon fuel tank, yacht-rated capacity and full-size bathroom with standing-room shower, the MasterCraft CSX 265 is the ultimate all-day cruiser for multiple multisport families. Its acres of space, from the panoramic bow lounge to the multilayered seating in the transom, ensure all-day comfort. Customize all that room to fit your desired lifestyle with a monsoon of options, including a livewell, rod holders, dive ladder, scuba-tank racks and even a 20-inch flat-screen TV.

FAVORITE FEATURE:

Bow Lounge

This massive lounge area takes playpen to the extreme. In fact, with more than 40 square feet of space, it’s unrivalled in our guide. And like every other spot on the MasterCraft CSX 265, it’s packed full of amenities, including this hydraulic table, which rises from the center cushion.

THE WAKES

Thanks to its seaworthy super-deep-V hull, twin V-8 engines and nearly 8,000-pound dry weight, the MasterCraft CSX 265 doesn’t need ballast to churn up big, clean wakes. We rode at 24 mph 75 to 80 feet back and found a super-punchy wake that’s great for moves like tantrums and scarecrows, where the wake does the work for you.
