Is it going from a Direct Drive inboard (engine in the center of the boat) to a V-Drive inboard ( the engine at the back end of the boat)?

Will the rear mounted V-Drive inboard system improve the fuel economy and top speed over the direct drive set-up (42 – 43 mph with a 400 Hp engine in a 22’ boat)?

Has Hydra-Sports center console boats now ended the entire CSX center console model line at Mastercraft by 2013?

For 2010, Mastercraft reused their CSX 220 hull for their new X-25 water sports boat.

This hull is known for its good tracking, high wake, and inspiring a sense of handling confidence in its driver.

The Mastercraft X-25 now outsells the CSX 220.

Will the Mastercraft CSX 220 deck and cockpit layout go away entirely for 2011 or 2012?

How will new 2011 models of the Hydra-Sports boat line also owned by the same parent investment companies, effect marketing, sales, and the dealers for Mastercraft boats and their salt water model line-up?

Are there big discounts coming soon to the Mastercraft dealerships, as Century Boats is offering to their dealers now?

All of this is just the opinions and open questions of 30 year veteran of the marine trades, Chris Brown, seabuddy, and not yet known.

MasterCraft 25, A new breed of wakesport / wakeboarding /water skiing boat

Buy your engine for this Mastercraft based on its torque output, not Hp. Get the 425 ft. Lbs. monster if you carry a gang, the smaller, base engine with 360 ft. Lbs. of torque if you go out on the water with just 3 4- 4 friends.

 Top speed with all of the full range of engine choices is 40 – 42 mph and with a best milage cruising speed of 22 – 24 mph.

This Mastercraft takes alot of power to get it to move, both in its 0 – 30 mph times and at the top end speed numbers, more if its loaded up with gear and friends.

MasterCraft ski / wakeboard boat BIG

An acronym of Boat Instrument Gauge, the MasterCraft BIG features a crystal clear and easily navigable 6” display.

Even the quickest of glances lets you see fuel, speed, temperature and cruise settings. But that’s just for starters. Because the BIG also lets you set up and store individual rider’s preferences for ballast and surf tabs, view footage from the tower camera or even watch a DVD from the optional Clarion CMV1 entertainment system.
