Funny, someone on here was in a focus group that involved the concepts for a MC center console boat. So that lends a lot of credibility to this story for me. The initial poster on the other site is vague in a few areas...like where he got his info. I guess we'll know on Thursday huh?

The MC X Trek (2002 design) hinted at a center console design.

There was also a serious rumor going around that the 195 was coming back for '06 with a refresh as a mate for the X1 in the bargain area and a replacement for the 19Skier...look where that went.

I have seen the center console in person. Looks like any other center console on the market, but that could be just because I couldn't care less about fishing boats.

That picture was in a popular mechanics article about two years back as a concept. They may have even built one.

The center console fishing boat. I wasn't going to say anything, but since the post on wake world is out there, why not.

I remember CC had both a inboard fish boat and a outboard bass boat in its history. Both had a short life.

Maybe we can get some outriggers and attach them to the end of the wakeboard line. Fishing :eek: Kinda scares me as a direction for the company. I guess it is no different than Porsche entering the SUV market???

Here is a direct quote from miamiboatshow.com (http://www.miamiboatshow.com/attendees/features/new.asp)


MasterCraft will introduce the Cross Sport Extreme (CSX), a center-console water-sport boat for adventurous and active-minded outdoor enthusiasts. For more information, visit www.mastercraft.com (http://www.mastercraft.com./).

My hats off to MasterCraft for this bold move.....I see no problem entering into another segment of the market. Now MasterCraft show me a salt-water worthy boat that can handle the rigors of the ocean, give us the performance and quality of the MasterCraft heritage. I would LOVE to see a REAL deep V hull design with importance placed on Comfort and ride.....do that and the Cobalt will be gone! ;)

While the purists among us may bemoan the addition of the Cayenne to Porsche's line up the fact remains that it added to the profitability of the world most profitable car company which has paved the way for cars like the Cayman that would otherwise not be possible. The Cayenne has served as a "test bed" and has absorbed development costs for the upcoming Panamerica as well as the current 997 and Cayman. The economic advantage of placing development cost on "high" production vehicles makes good financial sense even if there is some "watering down" of the pedigree.

The question is where does this leave MasterCraft? Is there some tech advantage to the salt water market or are they spreading development costs? Perhaps, but unfortunately I do not possess the intellectual foresight to see it. To me this is simple economics...MasterCraft BOAT Company sees a chance to grow...and if you are not growing you are dying. As with Porsche as long as the core product remains at the top of its class then these economic exercises do nothing other than to broaden an economic base that in all honesty is very narrow.

It may not be the direction that you (or I) agree with but you have to applaud those in charge for not sitting on their proverbial hands and doing nothing.

Lastly (and maybe most importantly), it would seem by most forums and chat boards that this topic will provide some much needed relief for the Vice President and his hunting skills… :rolleyes:

I would tend to believe this move is strictly a profit move.The ski boat industry has quite a few players as does sport fishing. Like MYMC said, Mastercraft is a boat company and if there's money to be made, why not?What better way to get your name spread around then by entering another market! jmo.

That was the best one!

I look at it two ways. MC makes more money by broadening their market and can still rationalize producing their ski boat line. That's good. Or, MC broadens their market and spends less time on their ski boat line. That's not good. Only time will tell.

Charlie don't surf. I don't fish.

Mastercraft decided to go in the SALT WATER SERIES since there is more then 80 % of the population of the USA living within a hour drive from the sea... I am looking forward to see the number relating with that crossover market. Something like: what is the percentage of families having a boat and using it within an hour drive of a lake or the sea and are dreaming of a boat that can handle the father's fishing habits and the kids wakebaording needs ?
I still believe that a company needs to expend is production if you want to grow and get stronger. Working on your "market share" is good, but extend the possibilities in the same segment work also really good for others before.
P.s. By the way, the answer is also over 80%...!!!

I didn't suspect that pic was going to be the boat. Just that they've done stretch-designs...if they'd sport their name on that concept boat, why not go fishing. If it makes purists feel any better Rob Shirley was designing fishing boats for a while after he left MC.

At the Newport Beach boat show last year I looked at salt water fishing boats. They make an X Star look like a steel of a deal. A 24' Whaler center console can run you near $100k.

I just realized that my last post is a watered down, poorly worded version of your post. I guess my fear is that at the next local boat show, there'll be the "Master Baiter" and there still won't be a 197. So that's all well and good for MC, but as a skier, not a stockholder, I've got to go where the action is.

As for the VP, I've got to imagine that had I been on the receiving end of that shot, I'd be plenty ticked off. I won't be defending him today or hunting with him tomorrow.

So, they're making a Wake/Salt Fishing cross-over boat. Now all they need is an attachment to put a casting seat on your pylon, add a trolling motor to the bow, and they'll have the 197 Fish 'n Ski.

I mock it, but the Salt Fish boat makes a lot of sense. I'm sure a ton of those fisherman have kids begging to wakeboard. I see people wakeboarding behind center consoles quite often, so the market's totally there.

Great, now we can go out for sets in our MC ski/wakeboard boats and possibly have the water torn up by MC jet skis AND fishing boats!

Ryan, didn't Donzi get into center consoles around 1990? I remember thinking that the F18s and F23s were pretty sweet. Still not as nice as the Fountains though...

Nice Post MYMC.
What you say is true about the Cayenne. It is a reach for Porsche purists but a profiable segement, as I understand it, for Porsche.

FWIW: There are those around that alter their opinion of you if you do not own a ski boat. I own a Maristar and would love to go fishing on an MC fishing boat until dawn then offer WB pulls on mine 'til dark. I have skiers tell me aw that's a v-drive like they can't believe I bought it, so there are circles that already exist even inside MC currently. This will just add another ring to the tree trunk and I'm cool with that.

I am way more impressed than my expectations were set for.

Nice, new color, mellow graphics...Maybe they'll call that mellow yellow in "Design -A-Boat". Glad to see they kept the 'look' and didn't go for the narrow beam, deep-V design.

It's a perfect step up for those folks in Florida with Tri-Star 190/220's with the half windshield...It too had the lower step-through transom.

I am really curious to hear how this boat will handle off-shore. I have never driven a pickle fork MasterCraft, I remember seeing X-Stars take on water from their own wake. I am un-sure about the x2 design and the x-80 is just alot bigger so I would doubt nose diving issues would be a concern due to length and therefore a higher nose angle. I am guessing this is 22' due to a name mentioned of CSX 220. It just seems to me that a 22' boat with a directdrive configuration would push the nose down......I know with our 23' boat there are times running out the inlet I need to trim the boat up to lift the nose due to the wave length (distance between waves). I like the look...Love the snap out carpet, like the seating arrangement. All in all, I like it. Just would have to test drive one in the real environment first.

As SteveO noted, the biggest news to me looks like direct drive on the new hull design ! Doesnt that have lots of crossover possibilities ?? Why in the world wouldnt MC consider a ski boat variant? Depending on how it shakes out performance wise that could be a big move.

At any rate, it is a VERY nice looking rig for catchin' some fish. Tastefully done.

Be sure to check out www.mymastercraft.com over the next few months leading up to the release (or should I say tag and release) of this new model. Keeping with our mission statement we will only carry the tops brands and with Penn Salt water reels starting around $480 you can only guess what a fully equipped boat will run.

Hey...this could be good. Saltwater boats and fishing are so expensive that overnight wakeboarding, skiing and footing are going to look like a bargain! I knew there was a marketing strategy in there somewhere. :dance:

I have to admit... I was not comfortable with the thought of this addition, but I admire the willingness to push the envelope and be innovative.

I'm sure this boat is just what some MC owners have been waiting for.

Since I don't have Fuel TV, I guess I'll get to see a MasterCraft on Saturday morning ESPN fishing shows now! Who will be the first sponsored by MC?!?

:toast:

That's it! I thought the engine was a little far forward to use the standard MC DD set up. It's probably like the pocket drives on a lot of day cruisers (Cruisers Yachts - one example). With cut-outs in the rear running surface and bottom of the transom the angle of the drive shaft decreases giving a shallower draft.

Hey all,

I found this link on WakeWorld. It's got a write up with some pictures.
It says the boat is a concept at this point (hull not finalized). Anyway, if you want to read/see more check it out.

There is also some info on the rumor of "is this the last year of the X1/205V hull?"

I am not sure on the concept of this boat and will reserve comment on it for now.

But I do have to say that the graphics and color scheme look great!
