MasterCraft Releases New Model & Features For 2023 Jul 7, 2022

MasterCraft announced its new 2023 model year features that improve comfort, ergonomics, and technology across its towboat range. Additionally, the company has completely redesigned the compact and easy-to-tow XT20 model from the adaptable, athletic, and reliable XT family of towboats.

“Since 1968, MasterCraft has built its legacy within the boating industry by delivering the most innovative, powerful, precise, and progressive boats in the towboat segment,” said George Steinbarger, Chief Revenue Officer at MasterCraft. “With the new 2023 lineup and features, now customers have even more reason to choose MasterCraft than ever before.​”


New for 2023, the compact and towable XT20 rocks a higher freeboard and new hull design for more comfort, ballast, and performance. Equipped with SurfStar, the XT20 produces the most precise and adjustable wakes and waves on the market—creating behind-the-boat fun for all riding abilities at the touch of a button.

Versatile, athletic, and available with premium MasterCraft amenities, the completely redesigned and compact XT20 is fit for fun.

Versatile and Adaptable 

With room for 12, the XT20 provides plenty of space. Thanks to standard clamping board racks and redesigned biminis with surf sleeves, the XT20 can hold up to 10 boards. With MasterCraft’s extensive hinged under-seat storage and plentiful above-boat shade options, boaters can now load up for a long, fun-filled day out on the water.

Fun and Athletic 

New for 2023, the XT20 received upgraded surf devices and a ballast upgrade of over 1,000 lbs., meaning cleaner and more customizable waves than ever before. The XT20 is also equipped with MasterCraft’s innovative SurfStar to ensure every rider receives the best wake and wave, regardless of skill level or activity.

Additionally, the new XT20 can come equipped with FastFill to fill and drain ballast in under four minutes.

Durable and Reliable

MasterCraft uses a thicker gelcoat, billet aluminum accents, triple-density foam, and high-quality upholstery in the industry to ensure unparalleled durability and reliability. The XT20 also comes with a custom-built trailer with premium quality steel and double-welded seams for strength.


With new technology features and telematic sensors in each 2023 model, MasterCraft boats are now smarter than ever. Standard onboard telematics provides the ability to stay connected to the boat remotely. Leveraging the new MasterCraft Connect app, boaters can monitor their boat’s health, view and share critical data with crew members, and alert their local dealer for service needs.

The new MasterCraft Connect app also allows boaters to search nearby food and fuel spots, help find friends via GPS capabilities and locate marinas and boat ramps nearby. Additionally, boaters can track past boat trips, find favourite spots, record their latest sets – and share all that with friends, family, and other MasterCraft owners.


MasterCraft has partnered with Klipsch to continue to elevate the audio experience. For 2023, MasterCraft’s dash and audio packages will allow boaters to dial in their audio preferences through customizable dashes.

New for 2023, all boats 22 ft. and larger in the XT, X, and XStar families will come with six standard interior speakers to spread the sound around the entire cockpit, and the NXT22 and 24 will allow boaters to add speakers as an advanced audio option. Boaters will also have more freedom to customize their tower audio by selecting up to 4 tower speakers.

In addition to functional improvements, MasterCraft has implemented stylish cosmetic updates for all audio systems. Klipsch Audio speaker grills have been redesigned across all sizes to provide a cleaner, more modern appearance.


MasterCraft’s exclusive partnership with Ilmor Marine enabled boaters to utilize the most efficient, high-performance towboat engines. For 2023, captains behind the wheel of a MasterCraft can upgrade to the new Ilmor Supercharged 6.2L engine.

With 630 horsepower and 665 lb-ft of torque, the all-new Ilmor Supercharged 6.2L is the world’s most powerful towboat engine.


With years of research and development, MasterCraft has developed thoughtful designs and innovations to provide smooth, dry rides and comfortable, ergonomic seating.

From triple density foam and upholstery to innovations like transom lounge seats, and a convertible rear bench, MasterCraft boats deliver more comfort for all-day boating.

New for 2023, an optional flip-down swim step has been added. The step easily flips down to allow easy entry into and out of the water. In addition, the new 2023 XT, X, and XStar models have a step-pad in the rear seat to make the boat’s transition in and out of the stable and convenient.

For comfort, convenience, and protection for your family on hot summer days, there are many improvements to MasterCraft’s canvas options for 2023. MasterCraft biminis can now accommodate up to six boards, with storage for four boards up top and two underneath the bimini.

All bimini pockets are integrated for a clean, intentional look. Combined with standard clamping board racks, MasterCraft has the most board storage in the industry.

Captains will appreciate the optional power helm seat offered for the 2023 model year lineup. With this premium option, raise or lower the driver’s seat at the press of a button for the ultimate comfort, convenience, and personalization.

Finally, those who tube and ski behind any MasterCraft model will amplify their behind-the-boat experience with the newly designed pop-up ski pylon, which takes one slight twist to raise and lower.
