Watch as MasterCraft “blurrs the lines” between ocean surfing and wakesurfing with their 2015 X23 video, “Welcome to the Jungle”. It’s dangerous territory to post a video like this right when most of us are starting to prepare for winter. You might have a strong urge to go on a vacation to the southern hemisphere — either that, or buy a boat. Try it and let’s see what happens. Enjoy!
MasterCraft’s New X23 Delivers the Industry’s Longest, Most Customizable Wave****
VONORE, Tenn. (Oct. 7, 2014) – The inland surfing trend has become a global phenomenon and MasterCraft continues to deliver the longest and most customizable wave on the market with the introduction of the X23, the latest in its line of luxury performance boats dedicated to surf. Beyond mere afterthoughts, MasterCraft has designed this boat from bow-to-stern to mirror the best attributes of coastal surfing allowing even landlocked families to wax up a board and hang ten. The X23 is the second, now larger addition to MasterCraft’s 2015 fleet to utilize an all-new surf specific hull design.
The Endless Wave at the Touch of a Finger
The new 23-foot luxury watercraft leaves the competition in its wake – literally. The boat has been engineered from the fins up to create perfectly shaped, customizable waves thanks to its award-winning Gen 2 Surf System and surf-specific hull. Unlike the competition, MasterCraft custom fits its deployable surf devices to complement the hull shape of each individual boat, even going so far as to individually machine the left and right sides to compensate for the rotational forces of the prop.
The shape of the wave can be instantly transformed using the futuristic, yet intuitive seven-inch Murphy touchscreen to match customized surfer profiles, including options for both goofy and regular riders. The 3,000 pounds of compartmentalized ballasts serve to further sculpt and lengthen the wave opening up entirely new surf zones for slashing, spinning and carving.
The Perfect Blend of Power and Progression
The MasterCraft X23 comes stock with a 5.7 L Ilmor Marine engine powerplant that was designed and engineered by the same team who has countless championships for Team Penske. The X23 has one of the sleekest, deepest hulls on the market providing for a smooth, responsive ride – powerful enough for the pros, yet versatile enough for anyone to step in and learn aboard the best.
Innovative new transom lounge seats are optional within the back sundeck of the X23 along with optional built-in camera mounts to capture all the surfing action. MasterCraft’s signature “hips” and pickle fork bow allow for a roomier, ergonomic interior able to accommodate 15 passengers complete with ingeniously integrated storage compartments that offer effortless, one-handed access.
Amazing comes standard on all MasterCraft X series boats including exceptionally sturdy, abrasion-resistant ZFT towers, designed for the future and exclusive to MasterCraft. MasterCraft also has an exclusive partnership with JL Audio™ to create integrated sound and entertainment systems that include five separate speaker zones, mesmerizing speaker lights and the ability to light up the wake at night.
MasterCraft dealers will begin taking custom orders for the X23 immediately including the option to upgrade the boat with a Surf Décor Package complete with exotic tropical wood swim platform and beach/mocha interior. The X23 comes standard with a five year bow-to-stern warranty, the only offer of its kind in the industry. To find out more information about the X23, please visit MasterCraft.com.
