Mastercraft 300
My friend is looking for a mastercraft 300 for lake Erie. It looks like they dont make them anymore, assuming becuase of low demand? Anyone know how many were made? If a low quanity were made my friend will probally look for another option.

My understanding is that the 300 IS NOT discontinued. They are MADE TO ORDER

I'm going to say have your friend call his local dealer. My understanding is that they are still made.

ok thanks for the info, i dont see anything on the website so i figured they were not made anymore. Does anyone know how many have been made so far? Figured not too many since they are so $$$$.

Wow, those are pricey! The extra 7 feet adds an extra $425k over a x35.

Its not just 7 feet, they arent a wake or ski boat. They are a luxury cruiser

$500K is lots for a 30ft standard luxury cruiser, $500K for a special build Ferrari is normal.

No doubt the 300 is a step above a standard luxury cruiser, glass roof as an example. Is it above a Cruisers Inc. or SeaRay or other high-end brands? My guess is the old CEO thought there was a market and distracted the company in this direction. They are expensive because they are not mass produced and it probably takes them 3-5 times the resources to build one.

I'd prefer MC stick to building wake/ski/surf boats and not have one offs that demand a disproportionate amount of the same engineering resources that the bulk of customers need support and innovation from.

In other words, as cool as the 300 is ... it is a gorgeous boat ... ultimately it is a distraction. I'd rather have more innovation and advancement in wake surfing / boarding than a nice boat to look at.

Of course there is more than just "7 feet" but 1/2 a mill is a LOT of money. I have never had the pleasure of cruising in a big boat like this but I'm sure it's a blast.

This is what Talent, International Sales Manager, told me during the factory tour about a month ago.
