WSM: How does this boat fit into the line?
MasterCraft: This is the biggest boat we make. It?s the same size and hull design as the X-30, having a 98-inch beam and a length of 22 feet, 6 inches. It?s for the well-established boater who wants the ultimate in performance and luxury. The basic layout is the same as the 205V, but if you spend more time in the boat than behind it, you need the MariStar. This boat is for the 45- to 50-year-old who owns top-of-the-line everything.
The customer who buys this boat is our most financially well-off customer. He may be looking at a Cobalt or a high-end I/O but likes the quality, construction and towing perfomance of a MasterCraft. Compared to an I/O, this boat has much less bow rise and countless performance advantages such as handling, acceleration, cornering and towing capacities. They are similar in their conversation room, layout and luxury.
This is not a tournament ski boat with the engine in the back. There are no fins on the bottom of this boat ? it makes for a little wider turn, but it is soft to ride. This has a deeper vee all the way through for a better ride in rough water. It is more of a big lake boat than a small ski boat.
