MasterCraft in Movies
1 Attachment(s)
Alright, my son got Muppets Take Manhattan (one his many DVDs for Christmas this year) and was watching it this morning. All of the sudden, from another room I hear a familiar rumble like an accelerating boat with low restricted exhaust - like my direct drive. I came in to rewind the disk and low and behold I see this! By the way the movie was made in '84 so this must be an '83 maybe an '84 with a fiberglass platform and all.

What other movies are there that have MCs? I'm also curious if you know of a movie, TV show or ad that has towboats of any brand.

Remo Williams " The adventure Begins" has a MC in it.

Cop and with Burt Reynolds had Malibu's in it. And Alan Jackson's music video for the song Chattahoochee has a Ski Nautique in it.

Didn't "Howard the Duck" have a ski boat in it. Can't remember if it was a mastercraft or not. I do remember seeing it being shot down the street from my grandparents house in Rio Vista. (California delta)

What about Captiva Island with Banana George? I haven't seen it in years but there has to be an inboard or two in there. Lots of cool skiing too, barefoot, trick, Air Chair & seems like there was even a shot of George on his old standup foil skis.

Great Outdoors with John Candy and Dan Akroyd has a couple
of MasterCrafts in it Tristars. What a great movie "What are ya gonna do in a pontoon boat, invade Normandy. Or do you wanta go for a ride with your Uncle Roman in a Drag Boat?" Classis Akroyd.

I'll think of some others
