SINCE THE BEGINNING

MasterCraft has always been a pioneer of product innovation, styling, comfort, performance and quality. With the most adjustable wakes, luxurious comfort and unrivaled craftsmanship, MasterCraft continues to deliver the most fun on the water.

Where we started

MasterCraft was founded in 1968 when it built its first ski boat in a two-stall horse barn on a farm in Maryville, Tennessee. Disappointed by the large wakes and pull of other ski boats, MasterCraft builders designed a hull for the smallest wake in the industry; smooth and low at slalom and jump speeds; well defined at trick speeds.

In its first year, MasterCraft only built 12 boats. But
 the boat design was so revolutionary that they soon
 got order after order, rising quickly as a major force
 in the tournament ski boat market.

Always looking forward

When wakesurfing took the industry by storm, we were the first brand with surf technology onboard. Over the past 13 years, we have continued to evolve our surf technology to create the best behind the boat experience for everyone. Today, MasterCraft designs and builds thousands of tournament ski, wakeboarding, luxury and performance boats at year to keep up with demand.

All MasterCraft boats are expertly crafted in Vonore, Tennessee by our family of over 585 or 600 craftsmen, innovators and ski boat lovers. These "MasterCraftsmen" descend on Lake Tellico every morning dedicated to hand-building the world's best boats. Because every MasterCraft comes from Vonore, hundreds of owners, skiers and boarders visit the company's headquarters every year to see the birthplace of their most prized surf possession.
