    Boating industry honors X26 with Top Product Award for 2020

    MasterCraft Boat Company, a MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc.’s subsidiary (NASDAQ: MCFT) again proved its position as the top innovator in the towboat category with its new X26 model. Announced this week online, Boating Industry honored MasterCraft with its Top Product Award for 2020. The award is given to products that stand alone for their impact on the industry, innovations and how they advance the product category – or create a new segment entirely.

    “MasterCraft has always been dedicated to innovation and delivering the most fun on the water. This achievement is a reflection of that commitment,” said Fred Brightbill, CEO and Chairman of MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc. “From the game-changing side walk-through layout, to its amazing behind-the-boat performance, we’re proud of the way our team brought creative ideas to life in the redesigned MasterCraft X26.”

    The X26’s surf performance was designed to be ultra-customizable, allowing for higher speed surfing (12-14 MPH), more like an ocean wave; or minimal ballast, slower speed surfing for kids or smaller individuals, and everything in between. New pre-set profiles (Kids Wave, Mellow, Steep and Max Push) simplify setting up the boat for riders of all abilities.

    Additionally, the X26 carries MasterCraft’s award-winning FastFill Ballast System and Switchback Ballast Tank to make setting up waves and changing the wave faster and more efficient than ever. Up to 4,150 lbs. of ballast can be added to the boat in less than 4 minutes thanks to these FastFill pumps and tank design.

    For everyone on board, the new layout of the X26 gets more out of a tow-boat than ever before. With the head moving to the center-line to improve access and increase storage, the bow walk-through naturally moved to the port side. This change had an incredibly positive impact on the overall comfort of the boat. Today, the bow provides a larger space with comfortable seating, while the cockpit is enhanced with two aft-facing seats, all while maintaining the boats deep, open and big-water-ready feel.

    The X26 is proudly made in America in MasterCraft’s award-winning, world-class manufacturing facility in Vonore, TN.
