VONORE, Tenn., June 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MasterCraft Boat Company, a MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc. ( MCFT) subsidiary, today announced the newest member to the XT family, the XT22 T. The XT22 T boasts the same best-in-class on-water performance as the XT22 and X22, but with a traditional bow for seeking those classic styling without compromise. Featuring superior behind-the-boat performance with SurfStar, plus ample comfort and space in a 22-foot package, the all-new XT22 T makes on-water traditions bigger and better than before.
“For the boater looking for a multitude of options and best-in-class athletic performance, but preferring a traditional and timeless style, the XT22 T is truly the best of both worlds,” said George Steinbarger, Chief Revenue Officer at MasterCraft. “Our XT customers demand the best, and we delivered it tenfold with the XT22 T. From world-class wakes and waves to unmatched comfort within it, now you can get everything you ever wanted in a 22-foot XT coupled with traditional styling. This boat is sure to amplify any summer.”
The all-new XT22 T includes new XT hull side styling features, along with an updated wraparound windshield, refreshed upholstery design, enhanced transom lounge seating and a transom walkthrough.
Sporting a traditional bow, the XT22 T features a unique U-shaped seating area with extensive hinged under-seat storage that easily fits up to 14 people. Complete with options like a convertible flip seat, pop-up seat backs, flip up backrests for transom lounge seating and an all-new flip-down swimstep, this boat is game for long summer days of on-water relaxation. Plus, the XT22 T keeps you cool on long summer days with optional bow, aft and side shade options.
New for MY23, the XT22 T is equipped with canvas upgrades to the bimini, allowing for built-in storage of up to six boards. Combined with updated standard clamping board racks, crews can store an industry-leading total of ten boards for more options and more fun.
The XT22 T is available with three tower options, two board rack options, and two to four tower speaker options to elevate the audio experience behind-the-boat. Six Klipsch audio cockpit speakers create a crystal clear sound system for the crew watching the action from inside the boat.
The XT22 T delivers unbelievable athletic performance behind the boat. Equipped with SurfStar, the XT22 T offers the most customizable wakes and waves in the industry at the touch of a button. User-friendly software allows for quick and precise adjustments, while the industry’s strongest actuators with position sensors deliver clean, consistent wave shapes at every level.
The XT22 T can be equipped to get on the water nearly 3x faster with optional FastFill. MasterCraft’s FastFill technology uses pumps that fill and empty ballast tanks in about 4 minutes at a rate of 30 gallons per minute.
Plus, because the XT22 T belongs to the most adaptable and athletic family in the lineup, it’s versatile for any on-water activity. Not only does the boat create the ideal wake for wakeboarding and wake surfing, it also allows families looking to tube or water ski the ability to do so with ease, thanks to the all-new pop-up ski pylon for 2023.
