Thumbs Up: MasterCraft's New 300

Zane Schwenk gives the new MasterCraft 300 two big thumbs up. Check out Zane’s recent tour of the nearly 40-foot twin-tip day yacht at MasterCraft’s Tennessee headquarters. While the MasterCraft 300 is definitely a departure for the wakeboard boat company, it features a lot of the same luxury touches we’ve come to expect from MasterCraft’s wakeboarding boats — just on a much larger scale. Zane’s pics and the following MasterCraft 300 specs will give you an idea of what we mean.

Massive MasterCraft

The MasterCraft 300 is 33’9” long, including the swim platform, and spans 11 feet from side to side. Its 14,000-pound weight is propelled by twin engines that deliver up to 800 horsepower to the props, and it features a 200-gallon fuel tank. Just imagine the wakesurfing wake behind the MasterCraft 300.

Magnificent MasterCraft

All of the MasterCraft 300’s bountiful bulk is well appointed. Take, for instance, the dual wet bars, which feature custom hardwood cabinets, Karadon countertops, and stainless-steel sink. The starboard wet bar even has the option to add an electric grill, stainless-steel refrigerator or icemaker, and a waterproof flat-screen TV. To get a true sense of the MasterCraft 300’s opulence, head to the cabin where you’ll find hardwood cabinets and floors, a stand-up shower and head, as well as a kitchen and sleeping area with a standard 26-inch LCD TV.

Manageable MasterCraft

The cockpit in the MasterCraft 300 features an LCD display that monitors all the boat’s systems, including maps, radar and a 3-D reading of your waterway’s floor. Opt for the MasterCraft 300’s joystick maneuvering system and anyone can take the MasterCraft 300 for a spin.
