Just picked up a new to me 2009 PS TT.....I had been after one for years and was the only thing worthy to replace my first love, my 1983 SS.

Any TT Owners that want to join the Thread, post up your boat, year, and what number it is..
These are great boats and I am falling in love with mine each time I get it on the water!

I love it too... Its a real head turner. I love it when I am stopping to put gas in it and people say "Nice boat!" Its even better when people stop to watch it run across the lake when pulling slalom or barefoot. One of the best decisions I ever made...

No complaints at all. The Tower is rock solid and functional, no issues at all with the actuators and was a breeze to use. Racks are first class, mine were coated Blk for this boat but are available in alum as well. I have another for one for the next 197, just waiting for it to come along.

Just got this about a month ago. . .my first boat without sails and I'm sure I have a lot to learn here on the forum. I have been out with a friend of mine on his '07 197 for the last two summers which certainly helps, but bear w/me if I have any dumb questions in my posts. Hours are a bit high (625) but she runs strong and is mechanically complete and cosmetically sound (although I'm sure a good polish will restore her shine).

Sully can comment on the 2013s, as I have yet to order mine (although I am pretty sure things are the same outside of colors), but the WTT "package" includes the WTT throttle nameplate, WTT Badging on exterior, 5.7L Ilmor, Powerslot Tranny, SST rubrails, Teak Platform, 3-Event Zero off, and in all years prior to 2013, a custom gelcoat and interior color scheme that only can be had on WTTs.

As Sully mentioned, 2013 is the first year that WTT Team members get to pick our own colors.

Correct, but the main advantage of buying a promo is the price. Most promo guys pass the discount directly onto the buyer (myself included).

Sullivan
11-06-2012, 09:31 PM
Nothing special about a WTT other than the numbered edition of the boat and the WTT emblem. I like it this way, it should allow a buyer to choose a boat based on a color he might want since the WTTs that go up for sale in late summer and fall will be random and not 125 identical boats like the past.

All I know is I want mine bad! Come on MC! Push that Metal Flake Navy Blue/Pro Tour Red out and get it on the truck! I have buoys to run!

Also, wanted to give the guys at Portland Ski Boat Center a big thank you for getting the boat turned around so quickly for me. Great guys!

Do you follow a break in procedure on the new boats or just and gas and ski? Surprised to hear skiing behind a "new" boat. I guess I'd have same question for the wakeboard team guys, would think they don't do any break in.

Sullivan
11-17-2012, 08:14 PM
Actually, the way we ski is a good way to break the engine in. We basically run the boat down our 2100 ft lake, stop, wait for the skier to catch his breath and the rollers to leave the course (about a minute) and then head back down through the course at 34 or 36 mph. Do that 8 to ten times.

I must say, MasterCraft makes a bad *** boat. There are quite a few suttle upgrades this year. New aluminum grab handles, guages, windshield supports, they moved the Zero Off pucks inside the windshield, new mirror and the trailer is nice. I am very impressed.

Also, wanted to give the guys at Portland Ski Boat Center a big thank you for getting the boat turned around so quickly for me. Great guys!

A-MERICA!!!!!!!!!!!! Love It! Only Color Combo better than a yellow MC

Sullivan,

I think I speak for all of us when I say we are ready for some more pictures. Different angles, on the water, behind the truck, interior....you know the drill. :D

That is one SPECTACULAR looking boat.

86765Its funny, I basically brought the boat home and spent about 5 hours getting it cleaned up, waxed and ready to go. Got it to the lake and took one set behind it. Its been pouring every time I have had a chance to go ski since then. As I type this its still raining. Hoping for just an hour or so today to get back to the lake and take a few sets. I'll get some shots with it on the water but I realy want to see this boat with the sun on it. The metal flake is cool because its a subtle metal flake until the sun realy shines on it.

I've been offered a new deal at our lake to buy into the lake boat and do not need two boats.

Sullivan
11-30-2012, 05:42 PM
The downside to that is the window will not open with the bimini on. Can't get to the front of the boat. Looks good and does a better job of keeping the sun/weather out.

After some moderate searching, I have finally found some Tournament Team Mastercraft decals for the side of my boat. Suprised that the Protournament Team decals were easy to find. I was dreading to go to a smaller size side decal.

If your TT has had the tag plate removed that tells what # of 100 it is, is there another wAy of knowing? Running the HIN doesn't show it.

Could yournlocal dealer or MC tell you? They should based on hull # or the production list for that year

My 2011 was a WTT and had no number plate. I think that was the first year of WTT instead of TT and they only made 100 plates and may have sold over 100 WTT boats that year.

#44 6.0L with the new Mastercraft Low Profile Trailer

A real nice boat.

It is interesting so see some of the changes that have been made -
Billet throttle arm (been around for a year or two)
Billet handrails instead of stainless tubing
Positive latch on the walk-through windshield instead of a strap and button.

Very nice boat!

Great minds think alike :) Mine has similar hull colors except: silver flake where yours is gunmetal, black deck, and a solid carbon flint interior with black accents. Scheduled to be done first week of January. Seeing yours is getting me very anxious and excited.
