The VW Diesel ProStar 190 Gains IWSF Approval
November 27, 2007
In this their 40th Anniversary year, MasterCraft has, once again, announced yet another industry “First”.
The MasterCraft ProStar 190, fitted with the Volkswagen 225-6 Diesel engine (PS190 225-6) has today received the full International Water Ski Federation (IWSF) approval as a World Record Capability Tow Boat.This major breakthrough represents the culmination of almost 2 years work by MasterCraft and Volkswagen engineers.
And the PS190 225-6 is no "one off" special. This is a standard production boat that has been available for a little over a year, with owners who have now reached almost 1,000 hours of usage on their 225-powered MasterCraft - with absolute quality and reliability.
Volkswagen Marine's brand new TDI 225-6 is a derivative of one of the latest engines designed and produced by Audi for executive automobiles. This latest marine version offers 195 kw, along with further increased torque to 550 newton metres at only 2000 rpm.
On the crown comes ultimate refinement and economy by means of a 3rd generation, piezo controlled common rail injection, which means that the TDI 265-6 undercuts gasoline engines in noise level, as well as fuel consumption.
The VW 225-6 engine is available now in select models from each of the MasterCraft brand series – ProStar, X-Series, MariStar and Saltwater Series.
