MB uses it I think. Thinks there's a YouTube vid of it too!

Got a quote on a 2013 X25 and the prices are just crazy. (For me anyway) My 2011 X25 base price was $75,700 and the 2013 is $90,850. Every option has also increased along with it. I think MasterCraft is pricing itself out of what I'm willing to spend on a boat. I love MasterCraft, but every man has his breaking point.

In a nutshell pure vert uses gates on your transom to fill your ballast. The tanks are pre built into the sub floor running the entire boat front to rear in compartments . Open the gate and the fill in seconds. No pumps. Open the gates while underway. Empty in seconds.


Simple enough

Dealers were at MC last week looking at 2013 changes, so, someone must know what the 2013's will be bringing different over the 2012's. Somebody spill!

I have a list of all the new stuff for 2013. Not a ton of changes. It's mainly tracking fins on the 25, hydraulics and braces on the power towers, the new cruise hardware/software, new screens with buttons on the sides for quick changes instead of navigating through the main touch screen only and more money for everything across the board.

I was also told that MC is doing without the "sender-less, voltage controlled" ballast controls - menaing what they did for 2012 is not goint to happen again. I think they realize that the 2012 method of controlling ballast does not work.

As far as pure vert? I would guess that is a typo in the add writeup. This same rumor surface last year before we ordered our X25 and turned out false.

Guys!! If you want to know the new features, then download the 2013 boat manual. Its posted with all the other MC manuals.

Pure Vert Ballast is a typo, last time I checked it is listed on the standard features listing for the MSRP build sheets MC provides. Lol, we need to revise our listings to not include this feature.

New 2013 Features to include
-New ballast control system-senders and pump rotations used
-Zero Off GPS Cruise Standard with pro package (big upgrade, perfect pass for 2012 was not the best)
-Tracking Fins Standard with pro package
-Swivel Board Racks Standard with pro package
-Hydraulic ZFT5 Power Tower with Braces
-Polished speaker cans instead of gunmetal for ZFT4
-All brushed metal dash,steering wheel more uniform look
-New Murphy system dash big upgrade
-New ballast,trim tab,cruise controller (e-controlled just like the engine)
-All dashes will have a touch screen, smaller unit with standard dash, larger 7" with pro-package
-New Billet Larger Style Grab Handles
-New Billet Larger Style Windshield Stanchions
-Driver Stereo Remote is back mounted on the dash
-New Billet pistol Grip Throttle Handle
-New Folding Bimini Top for ZFT5 Power Tower
-New Base Tower with bungee racks (no swivel rack option)
-Folding Rear seats being released mid-year X-2 (similar to X-25 rear seats)
-New walk through cross cut matting
-Ilmor revised the cooling system on the 5.7L to include pressure release valves (they are revising the way the water is circulated thorough out the engine)
-The trailer shop has been moved to a separate facility a few miles down the road (they have revised the trailers, new led lights, new fenders, new wheel packages, changed bunk configurations for easier loading and to accept all boats with tracking fins, new low pro option available for X-55 trailer.
-MasterCraft has really stepped up there quality control department!! The factory looks much cleaner and very well organized (also they have implemented many new quality control features to include a chemistry lab testing products before they are used, ie, lamination chemicals, gel cote etc...
-MasterCraft has cut the HydroSports production line down to producing only 4 models, they moved the Hydo builds to the old trailer shop (this should allow more room on the main line to build more popular MC models that will be in high demand, X-10, X-30, X-Star (new hot models were hard to get for 2012 hopefully this will not be an issue for 2013)

I am sure I am missing many 2013 changes feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

MasterCraft Boat Co. is changing, they have a New President leading the way and plan on releasing at least 2 new boat models each year going forward. We are excited for the future of MasterCraft Boats it is a very Exhilarating time to be in the boat business.

IMO a new president was definitely needed, especially with 2012 i dont think anyone liked the direction we were headed, but 2 new models a year??? that's cwazzzzy
