The XT23 is a surf star, also packing the premium wakeboard-boat performance and features you need for nonstop fun. Keep the waves custom and the party going with the award-winning GEN2 Surf System and a powerful 2,600 pounds of ballast. On board, enjoy amenities aplenty. Let’s delve into the details.

The GEN2 Surf System is appreciated by both experienced enthusiasts and beginners. Easy-to-use presets like “Surf Left” or “Surf Right,” and the newly upgraded touchscreen make it easy to provide a quality watersports experience. Experienced riders benefit from the more than 1,600 subtleties of size and shape the system helps craft. Whether you are tournament- or entry-level, you’ll appreciate the Gen2 Surf System.

Underfoot, Deckadence custom flooring provides killer looks, great traction and long life. Overhead, the base ZFT2 Tower will prove durable, comes with spinning board racks for convenience, and easily folds down. All around, your crew is immersed in hi-fi audio sounds from the included 7-inch screen and the available Advanced Audio Package.


The XT23′s seating features upholstery that’s as beautiful to look at as it is comfortable to sit on. Many owners opt for the CoolFeel vinyl upgrade, which stays 30 percent cooler in hot sun. Also notable, MasterCraft makes the upholstery for its boats in-house, using mildew-, UV- and stain-resistant materials. The aft bench is a convertible affair. In one position, your crew faces forward. Flip it, and they face aft, capturing the action behind the boat.
