For those who haven't been able to tour the MC plant in Venore, here are a few pics from our recent visit. It is pretty amazing to see these vehicles come to life. I highly recommend you go and take the tour. Thanks again Max for taking so much time to show us around!

MC is very careful about the NXT. I saw one on the line but they asked that I not shoot any photos anywhere near it.

Thx for posting these pics up! My Dad and son are thinking about taking the tour later this year. Your post is giving me the itch. You didn't see MC building a pontoon prototype did you? My neighbor would be super interested if so!

Didn't see any pontoons. They WERE building some big a$$ saltwater boats though.

My wife and I got the 2 hour VIP tour from Max today - AWESOME! Only took a couple of photos - they had some development stuff in production (Stilldark did a phenomenal job of capturing the experience). We did get a glimpse of an NXT in the yard. Ran into Terry McNew in the hall. He took the time to have a lengthy conversation with us - couldn't have been nicer! Very impressive operation and great people. Really made me appreciate what goes into a MasterCraft.

I was at the plant again yesterday for my second visit in the last month! Every time I have gone--I learn something new that impresses me more and more---it is truly a handmade work of art assembled by very dedicated folks. The management team is equally as committed to continuing a awesome tradition. So proud to be apart of the family as a dedicated owner!

P.S Awesome photos.

Well bummer that several of us were actually at the factory today 4/23 and didn't connect. We were able to take tons of pics that I promise to post up soon.bhopefully tomorrow, but travel may mess us up.

Hopefully we might have gotten a pic of a TT member's boat. There are some beautiful boats going thru the factory.

So will be putting up pics from our factory tour yesterday (4/23/wed). I tried to take lots of boat pics, so hopefully a proud new owner gets to see their boat.

It is a very nice factory with lots of organization and emphasis on a quality product. All the employees are friendly and seem happy to share.

Hope you enjoy the pics !!
