Boat Review

With its yacht-rated capacity and a staggering list of features that includes a 110-gallon fuel tank, 48-quart cooler, almost 80 cubic feet of under-seat storage and an enclosed head with vanity and sink, the MasterCraft X-80 is built to keep multiple families comfortable and entertained all day. And thanks to the Zero Flex tower and the bullet-shaped billet aluminum of the X-Pod dash, the MasterCraft X-80 also has all the edgy wake style you’d expect from an X-Series wakeboard boat.

FAVORITE FEATURE:

Simultaneous Surf Sessions

By itself, the MasterCrarft X-80 weighs well over 6,000 pounds. Add on almost 500 pounds of ballast and a boatload of your best friends and you’ve got some of the biggest swells you’ll ever find inland. Even better, the MasterCraft X-80’s twin, counter-rotating props produce surfable wakes on either side, so you can make your next session a double.

THE WAKES

Between the MasterCraft X-80’s weight and two factory ballast tanks, you’re looking at almost 7,000 pounds of water displacement, which means this very big wakeboard boat has a very big wake. To find the sweet spot, you’ll want to play with your line length and find a driver who knows what’s up.
