~The Familiar vs. The Horizon

Human beings have always had an internal competitive desire to do things bigger and better and faster. To learn what’s beyond the horizon, or on the other side of the mountain. And there’s no boat in the world more enthusiastic to accompany you on your quest for discovery than the MariStar SS280.

Its twin Vortec V-8 engines feature twin counter-rotating props, a closed cooling system and corrosion-resistant components, with digital throttle controls and a 100-gallon fuel tank to help you make the leap from what you know, to what could be.

The expansive SuperFly bow seats five comfortably, and with a 114-inch beam a total of 15 family and friends ride along for your journey toward the setting sun. And because it’s a MasterCraft, the SS280 does more than just transport you from the everyday to amazing. Entertaining is easy with its wet bar, sink, and head compartment, for whole-day excursions. Plus, it offers all the performance advantages you need to forge new frontiers-like your own official family watersports tournament.

Key Features

1. The MariStar 280 SST stands for Secondary Turn Screw which is an incredibly fancy way to say this bad boy has the power of twin V-8’s, not only making the MariStar 280 SST the sole 28 footer in the inboard market but the only inboard with twin powerhouses with maximum horsepower of 800 stallions.
2. The MariStar 280 SST is the only inboard boat to be named Boating magazine’s “Boat of the Year”, which was followed a few years later by a Boating magazine honor when the MariStar 280 STS was named 1 of 5 “New Classics” soon to be desired by all boaters.
3. The MariStar 280 SST is truly a day boat with a 110 gallon fuel tank, entertainment center with sink and ice box, optional refrigerator, head (with optional vacuum flush system) and more than enough space for 15 people - and with its Indmar saltwater engines, raw water strainer, hydraulic steering, saline resistant wiring, premier sacrificial anode system, stainless steel components and stainless steel shocks, this boat is definitely ready for the salty seas
4. The MariStar 280 SST comes standard with MasterCraft’s newest innovation, the VDIG (Video Digital Gauge) that makes reading fuel, temp, speed, depth, air temp and water temp (to name a few) easier and prettier than ever.
5. The MariStar 280 SST possesses the innovative pickle-fork bow that allows for more seating and also creates space for the standard bow ladder and anchor locker that will encourage you to stop this vessel and relax.
6. The MariStar 280 SST has the industry’s only 4 tip exhaust system, making sure the 280 STS operates at optimal performance levels
7. The MariStar 280 SST is obviously built to entertain as it comes prepped and ready to stow your stuff with nearly 80 cubic feet of under seat storage



Standard Features

DSI

Instead of old-school pitot pickups, MasterCraft’s under-hull paddlewheel delivers magnetic signals to accurately measure speed without being affected by random debris or atmospheric pressure


UNDERWATER GEAR
Technology has improved even the most traditional underwater gear, holding design specifications within a .005-inch tolerance for superior performance.


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.


SPLINE SHAFT
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.


HAND-LAID FIBERGLASS
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.


MUFFLER
Don’t worry about keeping sound down in a MasterCraft. Unlike our competitors, we install noise-reducing fiberglass mufflers on every boat we offer.


NON-CORROSIVE HARDWARE
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.


GAUGES
Electromechanical Borg Warner instrumentation is driven by proprietary software to read streaming data impulses and deliver unrivaled accuracy.


MASTERVIEW BOLSTER SEAT
Don’t get caught short in a seat that doesn’t elevate. Move the comfortable bolster seat into place to boost the driver an additional four inches higher.


SWIVEL BOARD RACKS
Easily clamp your boards into place for increased stow-away space and swivel your equipment 180° into the boat for boathouse storage (standard on all X-Series boats except the X-1 and X-2).


MULTIPORT EFI
An option for most, our standard electronic fuel injection system increases fuel economy and high-output engine performance, surpassing the archaic yet standard carbureted engines used by the competition.


SKI PYLON
We pull no punches with our pylons. Each is constructed of solid aluminum, anodized to 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.


JL AUDIO SYSTEM
Have a blast aboard a MasterCraft, with the JL Audio interior and tower speakers, designed exclusively for MasterCraft. Controlled by a premium Clarion head unit, our standard sound optimizes sound clarity inside and out.


TEAK BOARDING PLATFORM
Big is beautiful: MasterCraft’s oversized teak boarding platform is the perfect place for putting on equipment, teaching young ones how to ski, or getting back on board.


AUTOMATIC BILGE SYSTEM
Forgot to hit the auto bilge switch? Don’t worry. MasterCraft does it for you with a bilge system that automatically senses bilge water level and empties it.


LCD DISPLAY
LCD displays depth, hour meter, clock, water temperature, and alarm messages clearly and accurately so you can monitor your MasterCraft’s optimum performance.


DIGITAL THROTTLE CONTROL
Digital Throttle Control (DTC) operates at the speed of light and without the bulkiness of cables: the throttle “talks” electronically to the engine, allowing for a tow-sport-specific “cruise control.”


38 OZ. VINYL
Your upholstery should look as good as your boat. Premium-grade vinyl with UV protection, mildew resistors, and stain-resistant treatment maintains its shape and color for years.


BALLAST SYSTEM
Rotocast tanks positioned above and beneath the floor utilize their own industrial-sized pumps to quickly ingest up to 1,000 lbs of water weight in under five minutes (Standard on entire X-Series line of boats).


STEERING WHEEL
Even with an element as basic as a steering wheel, MasterCraft makes you look good on the water. With our four-spoke, vinyl-wrapped, polished aluminum steering wheel, (standard on most models) you’ll make all the turns in style.


Optional features:

MP3 ADAPTOR

Take your tunes with you by adding the MP3 player adaptor. Plug your device in and jam to your playlist with clear, crisp sound from Clarion and JL Audio.


GARMIN GPS
Know where you’re going and where you’ve been with Garmin’s color GPS system, in day or moonlight.


EXTREME MIRROR
Watch wake-to wake and beyond with a three-piece mirror that gives drivers a broad view of what’s behind the boat.


SNAP ON
Keep it clean with snap-on covers direct from MasterCraft. Color-match your canvas, too!


BIMINI TOP
MasterCraft bimini tops are built just like the boat — to last. Made of stainless steel frames and mildew-resistant canvas, they keep sun out and the quality in.


COCKPIT TABLE
Bring along a plate of your favorite brownies or deck of cards. Whatever your mission, our sturdy cockpit table stows easily.


MTS
MasterCraft Training System is perfect for the days when it’s only you and your ski buddy up at six. Up to 180 pounds of ballast offset the driver weight for balanced wakes.


CLARION HEAD UNIT W/ CD
Paired with JL Audio equipment, the Clarion head unit and CD changer turn any afternoon into a daylight disco.


TRANSOM REMOTE
There’s no need to climb up to the stereo to change your tunes with the Transom Remote. Simply do it from the platform.


HEATER
Take away morning chill by blasting the multi-directional heater at cold feet, body, or hands.


SHOWER
Wash off after a day on the water with our integrated shower/washdown system. Water tanks available in the 200, 230, 245, and 280.


ZEROFLEX FLYER TOWER
Towing never looked so good. Elevate the rope for bigger jumps or keep boards off the floor with our sturdy, collapsible tower.


DEPTH FINDER
Stay aware of shallow waters with a depth finder, viewable through the LCD display in the tachometer gauge.


BINDING BLASTER
Fill up the Blaster with Slick Boot lube and slide into tight bindings like they’re bedroom slippers.


FIBERGLASS PLATFORM
Custom match your boarding platform to your MasterCraft by going glass, featuring integrated rubber.


TRANSOM SAVER
Nicks and scratches be gone! Protect the transom’s gelcoat with our clever teak transom saver.


BOW FILLER CUSHION
Turn an open bow into an open house party by adding a filler cushion for more lounging space.


BOW & STERN CLEATS
Tie up in style with laser-etched cleats, through-bolted into fiberglass and backed with aluminum plates for stress dispersion.


TOWER MIRROR MOUNT
Elevate your mirror and elevate your driving with the patented billet tower mirror mount and quick disconnect.

TOWABLE COVER
Using a unique rear-latch winch system, MasterCraft covers close tight for clean trailer or on-water storage.


PHOENIX TRAILERS
Triple the fun. Take your 280 to the highways in strength and style with an optional triple-axle Phoenix trailer. Full hull support and easy-loading bunks make trailering the 28-footer smooth and comfortable.


MINI-TOWER
Turn any ski boat into a wake machine with the addition of a mini-tower. Great for teaching kids, footing, or tubing.


TOWABLE COVER WITH TOWER
Stop the chafing of tie-downs by eliminating them altogether; MasterCraft covers winch from the rear, with a snug fit.


FLUSH KIT
Saltwater sessions don’t necessitate the need for closed cooling with our integrated flush kit.

Hit the key switch and courtesy lights immediately flood a dark boat and show you on board.
