MasterCraft unveiled the new X26, the latest addition to its 2016 boat line.


Built at the company’s U.S.-based manufacturing facility in Vonore, Tenn., the X26 can accommodate as many as 18 people.

The boat has an optional head, a built-in sink, a refrigerator, multiple Igloo coolers, hidden trash receptacles and gas-assisted shocks providing one-handed access to storage compartments.

It debuts a completely redesigned hull shape, including a new draft height and deadrise that enables it to easily maneuver on the water. The boat’s 2,800-pound, built-in rotocast ballast tank capacity helps wakeboarders and the Gen 2 Surf System and new hull design are built to deliver wake surf.

The boat has an optional Murphy touchscreen that controls everything from the size and shape of the wave to the premium light and sound systems.

The X26 is powered by a 6.2L Ilmor engine; a 7.4L upgrade is also available. Marinized for MasterCraft by Ilmor, the engines are built in the factory that is responsible for more than 280 IndyCar wins and 18 victories at the Indianapolis 500.
