1) Like the color, hope its brighter in real life. Like the stitching.

2) Tower is whack.

3) Dash looks cheap, plastic toggles for ballast and trim? C'mon.

4) Glad MC finally is offering black grills on the JL speakers.

5) Passenger dash, radio are ugly IMO.

Bottom line, I would never buy a boat with that tower on it.

Interesting that you say this as I was thinking.....

How many people would be in the group of

A - "put up with the tower"

OR

B - "not buying that boat with that tower on it - P E R I O D".

We all have things we like and dont like about every boat (no matter who makes it) but is this truly a deal killer feature????

I agree with the last few post. Mastercraft dropped the ball BIG time with that non-power tower option. They could have done something exceptional, but they made something exceptionally ugly!

How many haters of the new non-power tower actually seen and touched one. You just might change you opinion.

Just not as advanced as the power tower is all

Seen it in person at the local dealership. Still not fond of it. Even the salesman pointed out that the speaker cans look cheap and don't matched the the stainless look of the tower.

Yep the MasterCraft Letter do look smaller. I would like it better if the Letters were more centered from Bow to Stern.

I really like the colors but only If I had the boat at my boat house. My red truck wouldn't look so good towing it.

Considering what Non-MC Towers other MasterCraft dealers are installing, this particular Tower isn't that bad.

>>You can see it here<<
