MasterCraft Boat Company and Baja Marine recently announced new offerings for the 2014 model year.

MasterCraft is unveiling the all-new X46, which replaces the successful X45. Although the 24-footer is only an inch bigger than its predecessor, MasterCraft says it has more space than any other 24-footer on the market, in large part to the bigger bow and wider wraparound seating.

The transom features a new walkthrough design and step, which is large enough to serve as a seat.

Baja Marine announced the launch of its flagship the 35 Outlaw. This top-of-the-line performance boat now features an updated custom dash panel, Latham hydraulic steering and MerCruiser engines, which give it speeds in excess of 73 mph.

“Baja owners looking to take a step up in size have been asking for the 35 Outlaw, but it hasn’t been available for the past several years,” Baja Marine CEO Johnny Walker said in a statement. “We are offering the 2014 model with power ranging from twin 430-hp MerCruiser 8.2L MAG HOs, to 525 EFIs, to 565 EFIs, which give it the kind of performance that makes owners proud at a poker run.”

Carbon-fiber dash panels and chrome Livorsi gauges are standard, along with electric standup bolsters, tilt leather/carbon steering wheel and a stereo system with six speakers and an iPod dock.
