The X10 is an all-new MasterCraft model for 2013 and it’s been our hottest models leading up to summer. We just returned from the Grand Rapids Boat Show and spent a lot of time talking to boat buyers about this exciting new boat. Now it’s time to give 5 of the reasons why this boat is so hot. < Listed in reverse order.)

Reason #5 Surf Wake
The X10 Surf Wake is quickly making a name for itself as a premier surf boat. Surfing continues to grow on our Michigan lakes and the buying a boat that can produce a great surf wake is something our customers are seriously considering. The Surf Videos of the X10 equipped with Surf Tabs show just how easy and how great the surf wake can be with only stock ballast and 3 people in the boat. See it for yourself in this X10 surf video.
Reason #4 Auto Launch
MasterCraft’s 2013 boats now come standard with the new Auto Launch feature. Boats equipped with a trim plate and/or surf tabs will automatically deploy the tabs when pulling a wakeboarder up out of the water and then retract once on plane at around 15 mph. This reduces fuel consumption and time to plane as well as reduces bow rise. We tested this feature out last fall at the Factory with the PWT XStar and love the added safety and quickness to plane that Auto Launch provides.
Reason #3 ZFT4 Tower
It seems like almost every boat in our service center has a tower these days. Until last year towers were very practical for on water use, but inconvenient when storing the boat in a garage or boat lift. While it was possible to fold a tower with 1 person, they usually required 2 people to efficiently and safely fold the tower down. The ZFT4 has made this struggle a thing of the past!With an assisted lift tower and two simple latches, the ZFT4 can be handled easily by your kids, while the optional upgraded ZFT5P raises and lowers with just the push of a button.
Reason #2 Flip Seat
The new MasterCraft flip seat is currently available in the X10, X30, XStar, and conveniently changes the seating configuration from kitchen style around the table seating, to entertainment style theater seating to watch all the action. We first tested out the new flip seat in the 2013 XStar last fall and had everyone in the boat comfortably facing the rider. Once you’re done you simply lift the seat back into the stored position like any other MasterCraft model you remember. True to MasterCraft’s standards, the flip seat is built with a Billet Aluminum frame to last and doesn’t compromise any storage space!
Reason #1 Size and Versatility
When our customer’s boats arrive for fall service, we usually can find a combination of skis, wakeboards, wakesurfers, tubes, and more. If you’re kids like to wakeboard but you still love carving glass on a slalom ski, you value a boat that can do it all. The X10 is our new ultimate crossover boat that offers something for everyone in a 21′ size that can handle almost any waterway.
The MasterCraft X10 is now available in AWS Showrooms around Michigan. Stop into your nearest AWS location and check out the new boat or schedule a test drive at your location to see the boat in action for yourself.
