Wakeboard Boat Review
The MasterCraft X-Star is The Man. It’s probably the most well-known wakeboard boat out there. The X Games uses it. The Pro Wakeboard Tour uses it. Parks Bonifay, Shane Bonifay, Andrew Adkison and more all have one. The MasterCraft X-Star has even been on display in the Supercross series and the Dew Action Sports Tour. It’s famous because it’s fully legit, with arguably the greatest wake in history. That was obvious the moment MasterCraft unveiled its breakthrough hull design, and riders have been raving about it ever since. Up top, passengers love the pickle fork bow that’s the signature look of the MasterCraft X-Star. MasterCraft Boats of course fully outfits this wakeboard boat so it is, no question, a first-rate, world-class wake machine for performance and lifestyle.
Climb in from the front if you want, and totally spread out in a bow that seems more like a cockpit lounge.
The below-the-floor 850 pounds is spread out in two rear ballast tanks and one center bag near the bow.
You can’t budge the Zero Flex Flyer tower, which has swiveling wakeboard racks with new tighter clamps.
MasterCraft calls it the Anything’s Possible hull. It’s the key to the MasterCraft X-Star, with a design that sculpts ideal wakes.
The suspended speedo, tach and cruise control have new billet aluminum housings and red-faced gauges.
The perfect ramp. Really, ride it and see if you agree. The length, the size, the peak – it’s all an amazing balance between steep and mellow. Charge it and your board never slows down, as if you weren’t even hitting a wake. But then, before you know it, you’re booted. Magic? Maybe. Engineering that regular people can’t figure out? Definitely. The size is good for intermediate riders with factory ballast. As much as advanced riders love this wake, they love it even more when those ramps become huge thanks to some more added ballast.
