With an MSRP starting around $40,000, the MasterCraft X-1 is the most wallet-friendly option for water-sports enthusiasts who’ve always aspired to own a MasterCraft wakeboard boat. When full, the standard ballast system gives this crossover specialist a solid wake for riders. When drained, the wake flattens out considerably to accommodate aggressive open-water slalom cuts. To further increase the value, the MasterCraft X-1 comes standard with the same quality tower found on the X-Star, in addition to some of the best wakeboard racks on the market.
INSIDE THE BOAT
Functional and well laid out, the MasterCraft X-1 cockpit will make drivers happy with a blostered seat and controls that are within easy reach. In the C-shaped lounge, there’s 40 square feet of storage, which is impressive for a boat this size.
BEHIND THE BOAT
Running on the original MasterCraft X-Star hull, the X-1′s classic wake is just as fun to session now as it was back in the day. With the stock ballast the wakes are medium-size with smooth, rampy faces. Our test team liked the wake best with a 70-foot line. Skiers will be surprised at how good the wake performance is for a v-drive.
