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. However, the boat design was so revolutionary that they soon got order after order, rising quickly as the best ski boat on the market.

Innovation never stops

When wakesurfing took the industry by storm, we were the very first brand with surf technology onboard. Throughout the past decade, we’ve continued to evolve our surf technology to create the most clean, consistent and customizable waves for every type of rider.

Thanks to more than 50 years of research and development, MasterCraft boats not only feature a superior build quality for greater behind-the-boat performance and a smoother ride, but the lineup also offers the most options and versatility in the industry. Innovations like stern thrusters, DockStar, Switchback Ballast, Hydro-Lock, transom lounge seats and CoolFeel vinyl are sure to improve your experience on the water.

The mark of great boat design and construction is when comfort and reliability are turnkey. This translates to less focus on function and more focus on fun. So whether it’s saving time, amplifying performance, or avoiding hassles, our industry-leading innovations deliver more smiles and less worries.

Today, MasterCraft expertly designs and builds thousands of surf, wakeboard and tournament ski boats each year from our world-class headquarters in Vonore, Tennessee.
