"This six-year agreement to partner the IWWF and MasterCraft in all world-titled wakeboard and water ski events is a tremendous opportunity to continue the growth of these sports worldwide," said Ian Birdsall, MasterCraft vice president for international sales, in a statement.

"With this in mind we will be producing 'world championship' editions of our Pro Star and X-Star models that will be available for purchase by federations and clubs throughout the world," he added.
