Mastercraft?
 
Does Mastercraft not make direct drive ski boats anymore and why did they do away with the two previous x-star models?
Do people not buy DD ski boats anymore? I guess i wouldn't but i'm surprised they'd drop them completely.
I would also think the 205V and the 2nd gen star would still sell... No?

williamburell 06-28-2013 8:03 AM

Just wait. They put the site down. Releasing the new x46 on the 1st. I suspect the 197 is a complete redesign from what I've heard. They are just being dramatic. No way they dumped the DD line.

How do you figure that they dont make ski boats anymore??

Theyre coming out with a new ski boat for 2014.

I assume hes referring to the site redesign yesterday. There are no DD boats online. But with that the x46, z, etc aren't listed either

rawB 06-28-2013 8:27 AM

Cool, That makes sense. I didn't realize the just re did their site. I was just surprised when I didn't see any Direct drives.

What's this new X46?

polarbill 06-28-2013 8:56 AM

I think they actually make 3 direct drive boats. Prostar 190, Prostar 197/X9, prostar 214/X14.

I can't wait for the newest billet/dirt bike shock tower Mastercraft has come out with this year. I bet this one will actually work well.

Pretty soon there is going to a headline popping up all over the news sites something like "The world's Aluminum supply is down to 1 years supply because US boat Manufacturer Mastercraft uses more Billet aluminum per boat than fiberglass".

JetRanger 06-28-2013 9:15 AM

Pavarti beat MC to the all aluminum boat segment? Wow, I bet heads rolled in a MC board room because of that one.

CEO: "an all aluminum boat, how did we miss out on that one...?"

Execs: "we were too busy subcontracting out tower design to Cyberdyne Industries, they are doing great stuff with AI..."

CEO: "let's redesign the XStar again so it can compete with the G23, I brought in some Maine lobster boat designers to help get the G23 feel."

Execs: "I don't think we really compete with the G23, they have only sold 4 so far."

CEO: "Let's just all have a nice cigar and and pat ourselves on the back and discuss how great the 2001-2011 X-Star is!"

All: nods/ murmurs of approval...

Postscript:

"July 7, 2017...MC towers become self-aware...they launch missiles against strategic targets...." Ibid.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Man that new boat better ski well. MC will be castrated by their fans if it doesn't. They've waited a LONG time for a new boat.

hunter660 06-28-2013 12:37 PM

If they release the 197 I saw two years ago it will be the best looking boat MC has ever produced.

Someone must be drinking the hate MC koolaide. I have the power tower on my boat and it has never had a bit of problems even before it got the retro fit. One of the best towers I have ever had and the sturdiest.

WW has nothing but hate for MC for some reason. I bet if the thread was called MB? Then everyone would be having organisms to talk about them. They guy asked a question so why can't people answer it in a fashion that helps him instead of bashing.

RawB- if you want some good answers on MC go to the teamtalk website and you will get all the help and answers you could need.

Dmac420sj 06-28-2013 1:51 PM

Lol. You guys hurt Dave's feelings. Mb is pretty sweet but so are axis.

JetRanger 06-28-2013 1:57 PM

Dave, don't let WW get you down. No one actually takes this place seriously...except maybe Williamburrel.

The fact and inalienable truth about wakeworld is the inverse relationship between cost and love, that is, the cheaper a boat is, the more people love it, whereas the more expensive a boat is, the more it is hated.

Everyone knows Mastercraft makes a great boat people just love to root for the underdog. That's why people hate LeBron and hate the Yankees. Most of these dimwits' MC/CC/Bu hatred is simply a defence mechanism.

Who's having organisms...? I'm a bio major so if anyone needs more organism info let me know.

Dave, allow me to summarize how the real world (read: people that matter) feels about Mastercraft's tower:

Mastercrafts wear their towers like a beautiful woman wears those heavy-framed black glasses. They do it to signal that they are smart and serious and that they are so beautiful that they can wear ugly glasses.

Only the ugly glasses make then even sexier, catch my drift?



Don't do drugs.

I think Proverbs 11:22 applies here...
Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion.

JetRanger, can you re-enact that scene with sock puppets? You are an ID10t
