I think it would be beneficial for MC to do this for us too.

I have always been very impressed with Nautique's values. Top notch company! :cool:

Never a bad thing to get answers from the top. That way you get a good idea of the direction the company wants to take.

i'll start the questions off:
Since the botched introduction of the 2012 xstar (of which only 2 PWT versions were produced), the product launches for the 2013 X10, 2014 prostar, and 2014 X46 have seemed to go much smoother. What has changed about your product rollout philosophy?

What are your thoughts about a discount line in the MC lineup? Is that something your business strategy has room for? Where do you see the greatest consumer demand going in the next 5 years?

When can i get a set behind a new xstar?

Question 1... Can we order a boat like the Xstar with analog gauges?

Question 2... Why Not???

Couple good questions there, if like to see mc do a axis type line, also like to see the return of analogue gauges, I can bear the 50 to 60k for a new boat but not the 90k and up mark.
My question would be why do you roll out so many new models instead of perfecting one?

Good questions! This would for sure increase sales while not reducing the quality! I would take analog as well. You feel more connected. The look is like the teak platform......classy! I hear this all the time and I am sure there is a strong market for this! MHO

Just my opinin here, I don't think MC is looking to increase sales volume per sae. From what I can gather the plant seems to be running at good capacity. Mastercraft is similar to the high end car market since MC is a high end boat. You don't see too many high end car producers making an economical line that more people can afford. These boats are hand produced one by one, if you got into the lower cost range you would see more of an auto like assembly line where these would be produced faster with less attention to detail/quality to meet the demand levels a lower market level would produce. If you want a top of the line boat, unfortunately your going to pay top dollar. I don't like shelling out the cash every month for mine, but wouldn't trade my boat for the world.
