There's a black barrier coat between the fiberglass and the colored gelcoat.

From Mastercraft factory tour:

"Barrier Coat. Think of it as gelcoat insurance. A protective layer of resin is applied between the gelcoat and the first layer of fiberglass to prevent gelcoat print-through and blistering. MasterCraft is one of the very few boat builders who currently use this preventive measure to ensure the long-term beauty of your boat. We wouldn't have it any other way."
