2014 ProStar | MISSION 04: HISTORY IS HISTORY

In 1968, an aerospace engineer-turned-ski school instructor named Rob Shirley was frustrated with the lack of technology available for towing skiers across water. To solve this problem, Rob and his team designed the first performance ski boat. MasterCraft Hull #1 was born in a barn and the final product, the MasterCraft Skier inboard tournament ski boat, proceeded to rewrite the rules. 

Our first boat represented the perfect combination of an athlete's insights, an engineer's design approach, and the enthusiast's passion. It was a machine designed to make history. And in the years that followed, it helped establish a new era in waterskiing. It's impossible to say how many records and personal bests were achieved pulled by Rob Shirley's innovation.

To create the 2014 MasterCraft ProStar, our design team was given the freedom to take everything off the table and literally reinvent the ski boat. The goal was to combine performance, functionality and aesthetics into a package that will once again move a sport forward.
