For the 2020 model year our engineers and product testing team have been innovating and improving summer. From tweaking the details, to overhauling an entire series, there are amazing updates across the board. So dip into your dealer and experience the products we’re proud to call the 2020 MasterCraft lineup.

Consider this a primer to get you ready to rip:

THE NEXT WAVE OF NXT BY MASTERCRAFT. We’ve redesigned the NXT Series and they are absolutely ripping. Too much to get into here, but when we say updated, we’re talking exterior styling, seating, dash, towers, engines, and on and on. All new. All rad. Incredible value. Skip over to the product page, or better yet, see your dealer to get on the water.

PUTTING THE MORE IN ILMOR. The most efficient high performance marine engines ever made are even better on 2020 MasterCraft models. For starters, all Ilmor engines have an extended seven year, 1000 hour warranty. And we’ve upgraded the bae engine across all models for more power–the 6.0L MPI is standard on all XT boats, with a 5.3L GDI available on Saltwater Series boats and the Series models scoring the standard 6.2L GDI. X Series models score a standard 6.2L GDI, with the formidable 7.4L Ilmor as an upgrade. The XStar comes standard with a 6.2L (including Saltwater) and the ProStar pulls with a standard 6.0L. These engines are even better with improved Mechman alternators, with double the peak current output. A crank mounted raw water pump has an improved impeller life (125 hours) and it’s easy to service.

SET THE LIGHTS. Available on models with 7” and dual screen dashes, the RGB lighting update brings you an editable 12.4 million colors on all dash and accent lights across six different lighting zones. This also includes the optional underwater, cockpit and tower speaker ring lights. Choose the mood and illuminate your boat any way you like, and change things up with one finger.

THROW SOME SHADE. Sunshades turn heads, and turn your boat into a cool oasis. Available on larger X and XT models, the Sunshade clips onto the bimini top or tower, offering cool cabana coverage from bow to aft lounge. Carbon fiber poles easily attach to receivers in the deck, so it’s less work to make shade. Chill Mode just got even more chill.

MORE WAYS TO DJ. Sharing DJ duties is a privilege earned only by the most astute passengers. On X/XT Series boats with the 7” or dual screen system, a new remote feature allows stereo control from the observer side of the boat. X Series boats also get a second screen display on the passenger side for stereo controls.

PREMIUM PLUS SOUND. Yes there is something beyond premium audio, and it’s called Premium Plus. Developed with Klipsch Audio, this new top level option brings your stereo insane range, bottomless bass and even more concert clarity. A pair of floor mounted 8.5” sub-bass tuned cockpit speakers has your low end covered. We’ve also dialed in the DSP programming to add another three decibels of bass, so you will feel the difference. Up top there’s four uniquely tuned 8.5” tower speakers (available in S80 or S85 can styles) to reign thunder and lightning, or smooth jazz, if that’s your thing. The Premium Plus Stereo is available on all boats 22’ and longer.

  • 5 Year Mastercare

    Fully factory backed, fully comprehensive and fully covered for five years—the industry had never seen anything like it. We were the first to really stand behind the quality of our boats and our workmanship.


    The best boats on the water now feature the best sound in the music industry. Klipsch has been making world-class, high-end audio equipment since 1946 and for the first time ever they’re bringing their more than 70 years of expertise to the water—exclusively on MasterCraft. Starting this year, the speakers on MasterCraft boats will be premium, custom engineered Klipsch speakers made specifically for on-water action.


    Our Gen 2 Surf System not only serves up the best surf, but also the most customizable wave. Effortlessly tune it from easy to epic so everyone surfing has maximum fun. From beginners to advanced riders, our surf system has an endless wave for everyone. Go from mellow to steep and port to starboard—all controlled with one finger right from the dashboard.


    The best on the water just got even better. Winner of a 2017 NMMA Innovation Award, DockStar Handling System gives drivers of any ability a boost of confidence by making tight spots like docks and marinas easier to navigate. This is not tech for tech’s sake. This is practical convenience and capability built to make your day on the water better—every time out.

About Us

Mastercraft NZ

MasterCraft is a boat brand that is huge on the world stage!  So of course we are very proud to be flying the MasterCraft flag in our great country. We prove each day the versatility of a MasterCraft boat by selling to both “rookies” or “hardened pros”!   Our first time boat owners are mind boggled by what our boats can do and very quickly find themselves in the water and either surfing an endless wave for the first time, skiing like they have never skied before or hitting those wake to wakes, or should I say ramp to ramp!

Our customers who have been around the traps for a while get our MasterCrafts to continuously push the limits, again whether it be 360 transfers on the wake surfer, inverts on the wakeboard or hunting those pb’s through the slalom course behind the Pro Star.

Regardless of whether you are one of these “rookies” or a “hardened Pro” the team here at MasterCraft NZ have a boat that is going to blow your mind, regardless of whether you are having the time of your life behind the boat or whether you are just loving life by being in a MasterCraft boat, laughing and laxing with your best mates, on your favourite lake until the sun goes down!


We were a staunch Malibu boat family and when we were looking to upgrade, Mastercraft wasn’t really on our radar.  We traveled from Dunedin to the North Island to look at a couple of Malibu boats and thought we might as well call in to the Mastercraft dealership as we were passing through.  We had dealt with Hayden before down south, and had always had a good relationship with him.

He really was the one that sold us/my wife on buying a brand new Mastercraft, over a similarly priced secondhand Malibu.  Hayden was extremely easy to deal with. He answered our large number of questions really promptly and always followed up with any requests that we had.  We felt he went the extra mile for us and we couldn’t be happier with the end result.

Our Mastercraft XT20 is a perfect family boat, it’s obviously an amazing wakeboarding boat but it’s equally as awesome for our wee kids to get behind too.  We have already had them out on Ezy wakes and biscuits, and they both count down the sleeps until the get to go back out on it – which was equally as important to us as it was to be buying solely a wakeboarding boat.

Thanks to Hayden and the Mastercraft team for your efficient service, you made the purchase of this boat much easier to sell my wife on!  Highly recommend a Mastercraft through the NZ sales team to anyone who is considering an upgrade, or getting in to a new boat.

I’m not sure how often people write in once they have purchased anything from you guys (maybe if it’s a complaint) but this is certainly not one of them – it’s actually a big thank you for the way you have treated us (my family) through the purchase and after sales care of our super awesome Mastercraft XT20 boat.

From the moment I came in to view the boats your time was of no importance to you and you made me feel like one of the team. I could ask any question and take as long over the decision as I wanted (and that certainly became longer than we all probably wanted – especially my wife – when it came down to the colour choice!) So a big thank you to you all for that.

Bringing a boat around to my house to make sure it would fit in our garage was sure an example of going that extra mile – about a 240 kilometre round trip to be exact – so thanks.

So far the weather hasn’t been extremely favourable to us and as you know we have only been out in it once but what a day – the smoothness of the engine/gearbox is simply outstanding, the space is awesome – so many storage compartments and all of them are great sizes… all our skis, wakeboards, ropes, life jackets and even the ski biscuit is simply stored away (and there is still space), I’ve never had anything like this in a boat and then the looks… what can I say but woohoo – it is simply stunning. The colours reflecting off the water bring a smile to my eye every time – we have a stunning boat!

You all have made us feel very welcome (and I’ve seen this when you have been chatting to other clients) and I know you are right behind us to ensure we have the best boating time possible.

Once again thank you for your patience with my decision making (I know I have made the right one) and I look forward to popping in from time to time even if it’s just to say Hi.

The Team at Mastercraft NZ were unbelievable during the process of buying our first new boat, any queries we had were swiftly answered without fuss and they put us at ease during the whole process. We have since highly recommended them and would buy from them again in a heart beat.

Paul and Laura

Recently I purchased a Mastercraft NXT20 from Mastercraft, Hamilton. Hayden Vaughn was totally familiar with the product and 100% customer orientated. The boat was dually delivered to Mangakino and familiarization and orientation on the water was carried out.

We were more satisfised with the whole process and would recommend Mastercraft and Hayden Vaughan.
