MasterCraft Releases New 24-footer

The builder expands its NXT Series with the largest vessel in the model line.

“The Next Big Thing Is Here,” the homepage of MasterCraft’s NXT model line’s flagship screams about the Vonore, Tenn.-based builder newest offering, the NXT24.

With a roomy, 10-foot, 2-inch beam, seating for up to 16 and 158 cubic feet of storage, MasterCraft backs up their claim.

The latest launch expands the NXT lineup to three models — there’s 20- and 22-foot NXTs as well — and is the 13th model from the manufacturer of boats aimed at the water sports crowd.

Meant to be easily towable, the NXT24 comes standard with the company’s proven inboard propulsion system, with options that include the company’s DockStar handling package and Gen 2 Surf System.

MasterCraft says DockStar, the multiple-rudder steering system (there’s two rudders forward of the prop in addition to one abaft) makes close-quarters maneuvering an easier affair, particularly in reverse.


The Gen 2 Surf System utilizes ballast — 2,600 pounds on the NXT24 — and tabs combined with software to set the wake size and shape with the push of a button.

With a starting price of $82,995, the boat comes in under $95,000 “well-equipped” says MasterCraft.

“Consumers are demanding larger, high performance tow boats at an accessible price point,” said CEO and chairman Fred Brightbill in a statement. “Since 2015, the NXT has answered that demand, delivering the most fun on the water while welcoming new boaters and their families into the MasterCraft family. We’re excited to build off that momentum with the new NXT24, giving customers more surf performance, more room, and the trusted MasterCraft quality in a larger, attractively priced 24-foot boat.”

An “infinite” range of interior and exterior colors can be found on the builder’s Design This Boat web feature. Trailers, custom towers and a high-end sound system via Klipsch Premium Audio are available as well.
