MasterCraft Boats UK has introduced the 6.1m XT20 to its bespoke superyacht tender offerings. The new XT20 is MasterCraft’s latest multi-sport model and MasterCraft Boats UK has confirmed that it will be available as a bespoke superyacht tender with a Yanmar diesel in-board conversion.
This brings the number of MasterCraft models available for the bespoke treatment to seven.
The XT20 has a crossover hull and is designed to handle all watersports including wakeboarding, waterskiing, wake surfing, tow sports or tubing. The aggressive XT-series hull lines deliver ‘agile, responsive handling’ with minimum bow rise. The ergonomic dashboard enables the driver to easily control everything from the size and shape of the wake, to the sound and lighting systems through a touchscreen.
The XT20 is equipped with MasterCraft’s award-winning Gen 2 Surf System. This provides the ability to maintain a consistent speed and create perfect wake conditions using a simple touchscreen operation.
Michael Hardicker, MD of MasterCraft Boats UK, explained, “Whether it’s a member of the crew or a guest at the helm, it’s easy to give a professional tow and to quickly become an expert driver. The Gen 2 Surf System takes away the guesswork. You simply dial up what you need, whether that’s a clean wake for waterskiing, perfectly sculpted lips for wakeboarding or chest-high curling surf waves; there is something to suit all abilities.”
The hull on the XT20 has been specifically designed to create a spacious lounge and plenty of storage space. Wrap-around seating accommodates up to 11 passengers in comfort and similarly to the XT23, the entire boat can be outfitted in MasterCraft’s new ‘Cool Feel’ vinyl, that remains cool to the touch even after extended exposure to direct sunlight.
MasterCraft’s new DockStar Handling System will also be available on the XT20. This enables boat drivers of any ability to confidently drive in reverse and more easily navigate tight docks and crowded marinas.
