Drilling & Grinding

We combine the best of old-school craftsmanship with new-school technology in every MasterCraft. Rather than rely on random placement of upholstery, grab rails, and other items attached to the boat, we jig every one to ensure that every part goes in the correct place, every time.

Drilling & Grinding

Environment

Within our 250,000 sq. ft. facility, MasterCraft binds itself by the disciplines of Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing to create a clean, controlled environment. The result? The best quality in our class, a safe workplace for employees, and minimized impact on the environment through lowered emissions and increased recycling.

Environment

Research & Development

Since our first boat in '68, innovation has been a hallmark of the MasterCraft brand. Our designers and engineers transform cutting-edge vision into on-water reality using some of the most sophisticated technologies available, while our elite team of validation specialists ensures every model is rigorously tested in the harshest conditions.

Research & Development

Mold Maintenance

Molds are at the heart of every boat built by MasterCraft, which is why we maintain every one with such fervor and care. Molds are thoroughly waxed every 2-4 uses and detailed every 50 by one of the industry's only dedicated department of full-time mold-care specialists.

Mold Maintenance

Q&A Checkpoints

MasterCraft owners deserve more than a boat that's simply "assembled." Every part is inspected structurally and aesthetically throughout our build process. And our team of quality assurance inspectors continually audits each boat to ensure it meets our stringent standards before passing the gelcoat, lamination, and final-finish stations and the intense on-water test.

Q&A Checkpoints

Gelcoat

With the industry's highest-grade gelcoat and an experienced team of application specialists, MasterCraft gives each boat an enduring, lustrous look right out of the mold.

Gelcoat

Resin Counter

To ensure the highest quality control during every phase of the lamination process, resin counters at each lamination station guarantee a consistent spray of laminate to eliminate excess weight and materials.

Resin Counter

Anchorlok

Steel, aluminum, and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) are laminated into each liner, hull, and deck so that every external item is securely anchored to withstand any high-pressure force and reduce the potential of gelcoat cracks over time.

Anchorlok

Dash Assembly

An in-house sub-assembly department pieces together all small components, like the dash, so that our supply chain is reduced to hours, not weeks. Once assembled, the small parts move to the rigging line, where they are installed and tested for performance.

Dash Assembly

Stringers

A MasterCraft's all-composite framework is centered around foam stringers that provide rigidity, while also helping to dampen sound and vibration.

Stringers

Upholstery

MasterCraft cuts, sews, and finishes all of our upholstery in-house, utilizing first-rate materials like triple-density foam and premium grade vinyl with UV protection and mildew and stain resistors.

Upholstery

Fiberglass Sheet Room

MasterCraft uses the latest precision technology in the cutting-room to pre-cut all fiberglass sheets for individual models, ensuring consistency and guaranteeing each boat follows a pre-determined lamination schedule.

Fiberglass Sheet Room

Trailers

It's no surprise to learn we make our own trailers, too. We cut raw steel, then bend and weld it to the exact dimensions of each boat. Primed and painted, it's then equipped with hardware that meets the highest of standards for towing security.

Pickle Fork Bow

MasterCraft's signature Pickle Fork Bow opens up seating and storage possibilities without changing the overall performance of the running surfac

Pickle Fork Bow

New Graphics

All MasterCraft graphics are designed with two purposes in mind: to make people stare more and to have you explain less.

New Graphics

Diamond Transom

The style of the diamond-shaped transom and boarding platform typifies MasterCraft's ability to find the pulse of cutting-edge design without sacrificing relevance.

Diamond Transom

Walk-Through Transom

Sundeck walkways and floors incorporate a non-skid surface for safety as passengers leave or board the boat.

Walk-Through Transom

Billet Vents

Bright dipped anodized aluminum will never crack or fade. It will look as good in 20 years as it does today. You just can't say that about plastic.

Billet Vents

Underwater Gear

Investment cast nibral rudders and struts offer a superior strength-to-weight ratio and give each MasterCraft a sure grip on the water.

Underwater Gear

R&D Validation

Since our first boat in '68, innovation has been a hallmark of the MasterCraft brand. Our R&D department is the industry's largest, all to provide you with exactly the running surface and the boat that's right for your needs. MasterCraft's engineering staff alone brings more than 150 years of collective experience to the table, including the refined expertise of a naval architect. They transform cutting-edge vision to on-water reality using some of the most sophisticated design technologies available, while our elite team of validation specialists ensures every model is rigorously tested in the harshest conditions.

Inboard Advantage

  • Less Draft
  • Power Control
  • Superior Handling
  • Swim Safe

Less Draft

Worried that a VectorDrive inboard won't allow you in the shallows? Don't be. Our boats draws less water than comparable stern-drives, allowing you to explore more shorelines in search of the perfect sandbeach playground.

Less Draft

Power Control

With a VectorDrive inboard boat, power goes directly to the prop, meaning greater torque and pulling power. And thanks to a separate, rack-and-pinion-driven rudder system, our boats turn easier than a sterndrive's bulky out-drive.

Power Control

Superior Handling

Turning is immediate and precise on VectorDrive inboard boats, thanks to a rudder that is positioned directly in the slipstream of the propeller. With a wider range of motion than a huge stern-drive unit, our boats turn quicker, tighter, and with greater efficiency.

Superior Handling

Swim Safe

VectorDrive inboard units are tucked neatly under the boat, in and away from swimmers and wayward feet. Thanks to an integrated boarding platform, they are also easier to get on and off the boat safely. (Never be on or around a boarding platform while the engine is running.)

Swim Safe

Big is beautiful: MasterCraft's oversized teak boarding platform is the perfect place for putting on equipment, teaching young ones how to ski, or getting back on board.

Teak Boarding Platform

Automatic Bilge System

Forgot to hit the auto bilge switch? Don't worry. MasterCraft does it for you with a bilge system that automatically senses bilge water level and empties it.

Automatic Bilge System

Premium Vinyl

Your upholstery should look as good as your boat. MasterCraft's premium-grade marine vinyl is puncture resistant with UV protection, mildew resistors, and stain-resistant treatment that maintains its shape, luster and color for years.

Premium Vinyl

Ballast System

Rotocast tanks positioned above and beneath the floor utilize their own industrial-sized pumps to quickly ingest up to 1,000 lbs of water weight in under five minutes (Standard on entire X-Series line of boats).

Ballast System
