Saltwater Solution

The Best

Saltwater Experience



Over the past decade, MasterCraft has meticulously refined materials, vendors and mechanics to ensure your investment is protected from the harsh environment brought on from saltwater and brackish water.



From a powerful, fully closed-cooling motor system with the industry’s best warranty to sacrificial aluminum anodes.



Every saltwater solution has been carefully thought out, tested and proven to deliver the quality and reliability you expect from MasterCraft.


Ilmor engines come standard with a convenient engine flush hookup and corrosive protection paint. When opting for a saltwater package, the base motor will be upgraded to an Ilmor 5.3L or 6.2L GDI V8. Opt for even more power by upgrading to the Ilmor 6.2L Supercharged engine. These engines feature an efficient, completely closed-cooling system and produce 365HP, 430HP, and 630HP respectively.


Electrical Bonding Harness

An electrical bonding harness adds additional protection to the metal components you find under the waterline.

Hydraulic Steering

Hydraulic steering is more corrosive resistant than the stainless steel cable systems used by competitors in their saltwater offerings. 

Sacrificial Anodes

MasterCraft's underwater gear uses aluminum anode bonding for optimal durability and longevity. Aluminum anodes provide better corrosion protection for underwater gear, whereas competitors use less efficient zinc anodes.

Spaghetti Mesh Liner

MasterCraft's standard storage floor lining is replaced with an easily washable and mildew resistant rubber mesh lining when opting for the saltwater package.

Stainless Steel Shocks

Standard shocks are replaced by stainless steel shocks to battle corrosive saltwater and extend life in harsh saltwater environments.
