~Pick Your Spot
Where to go?
Start up front. With the SuperFly design, you�ll have room to ask along three more, as the X-45�s square bow offers up more seating room than any traditional triangle shape. Gear stores below twin, lifting rotocast seatbacks, while drinks keep cool in the self-draining cooler.
Or, get behind the wheel. Wrap your fingers around a billet throttle knob which controls up to 450 horses of raw pulling power. Gaze into a custom-matched dash cluster which puts electromechanical gauges and tip-lit toggle switches at your disposal. To the driver�s right are the keys to board immortality; ballast switches kick on the 750-pound under-floor system.
Better yet, get behind the transom. The X-45 tosses back massive, defined wakes that float riders to the flats. With a new, refined ZeroFlex tower system, pulls are pure, as is the sound from the standard Clarion/JL audio system howling to the tune of 500 watts. Slow it down to 11 mph, hop on a wakesurfer and you�ll think you washed up on Huntington Beach, with clean curls that allow you to surf as long as your legs hold out.
Whatever spot you choose, there is really only one way to go: the X-45.

~IN-TANK FUEL PUMP
Designed by MasterCraft to maximize fuel
efficiency, reduce vapor lock and safeguard
boaters, our exclusive in-tank fuel pump
pushes fuel to the engine, rather than pulling it.
To minimize vibration and prop slippage, our
shaft and coupler use a fitted tongue-and-groove
design, which requires fewer parts and tools,
making maintenance quick and easy.
Our hand-laid and hand-rolled fiberglass
method�standard since 1983�ensures that
each boat receives a calculated lamination
schedule in high-stress areas, built to
withstand not just years of boating, but decades.
Don�t worry about keeping sound down in a
MasterCraft. Unlike our competitors, we
install noise-reducing fiberglass mufflers on
every boat we offer.
Stainless steel bolts, nuts, screws, washers,
clamps, staples, and insert nuts protect every
boat�s beauty, integrity, and longevity against
the harsh elements of water.

carbureted engines used by the competition.
We pull no punches with our pylons. Each is

prevent wear and then through-bolted into
steel plates eight to 16 times to sustain
merciless torque. It�s topped off with a
WearGuard nylon inset to prevent rope chafe.

~38 OZ. VINYL
