Hopefully Nauticstar have a fuel pump that does not fail after 300hrs and cost me $1200 equivalent here in the UK. Not that I am pi***d off or anything!

I had a NauticStar 203dc around 4 years ago. Not a bad boat, but not MC quality at all. It's a decent mid-tier priced boat.

Think it is buy some revenue and another brand under the helm. Hydrosports custom is still built by Mastercraft and their quality is A+

This could only lead to good things.

The gods have been listening😎.
I can’t wait to see if they do actually make a supreme center console set up for “all things boating” . Make sure to add a toilet for the lady’s.

Maybe the shareholders demand sales growth and acquisition is one way of getting there faster.

Hydrasport hasn't been owned by Mastercraft for a number of years, and they no longer have anything to do with the manufacture of the boats either. Hydra-Sport has their own staff and facility...although they are still in the same industrial park as MC.

During MC ownership they did take the quality and fit and finish up a huge amount compared to when genmar owned them.

Another manufacturing facility plus coastal presence, very interesting.

I guess I'd like to see the dealership network expand. Maybe this will help that too. The Malibu and supra shops do the work on mine since I'm too many hours away from a MasterCraft dealer.
