Thinking about a new MasterCraft? If you’re looking for a great boat for watersports and cruising, the 2021 MasterCraft XT22 might be the boat for you! Featuring more luxurious finishes than the NXT line without the premium of the X series, MasterCraft’s XT line is perfect for bringing the whole crew together.
Beginning on the platform, you can see that MasterCraft typically pairs their boats standard with a teak platform. However, like the boat in the video, you have the option to upgrade to a fiberglass platform with the no-skid pad. Tucked underneath is the coveted Gen 2 Surf System. The Gen 2 System is extremely versatile. Easily adjust the wave from mellow to steep with the attitude adjustment plate. Also on the transom, you’ll find large, convenient grab handles and a step that can also serve as an additional seat for strapping on your board.
There are many things to love about this XT22, but one in particular is the ergonomic seat design. The rear seat has a convertible option to create a sunpad or kick back and watch the action behind the boat. And with MasterCraft’s optional upgrade of their Cool Feel interior, your seat vinyl will feel 30% cooler in direct sunlight than traditional options. Another feature convenient for families with small kids is the built in trash can plus the billet glove box is a dry area equipped with charging ports and interior lights.
We also love the captain’s seat in the XT22 – a high-backed helm chair that swivels, moves forward and back and is easily raised and lowered. Plus signature to MasterCraft, the helm seat reclines! Additionally, as with all MasterCraft boats, you’ll find deep storage for all of your gear under the seats from transom to bow, plus the pass-through compartment under the observer seat. Plus, ensure maximum comfort with the adjustable steering wheel with tilt lever. Crafted with the whole family in mind, the XT22 comes ready to keep you boating comfortably all day long.
The 2021 MasterCraft XT22 offers 4 screen options. In this video, you can see the XT22 features the advanced audio and touch screen option that includes the 7-inch touchscreen. The touchscreen is very user-friendly and displays everything you need. From air and water temperature and viewing your surf presets, to managing your bluetooth connections and heated seat controls, you can easily do it all!
Options are always nice, and the MasterCraft XT series has options galore. When it comes to the tower, you have your choice of 3 options. This boat in our walkthrough video features the ZFT4 tower with clamping board racks that swivel in and out for easy loading and unloading. To lower your tower, simply unlock the hand latches then pull the tower straight down. If you have surfers in your family, they will benefit from the tow nodules on the side of this tower – it makes learning to get up onto a surfboard easier than ever! Want another option for this boat? Most people opt for the BTS windshield upgrade. It is sturdy and has a cutout on the driver’s side to allow for docking your boat without having to stand up. And even more options to choose from such as the plethora of colors, gelcoat and MasterCraft logo options.
Lastly, let’s dive into the engine. The standard power plant for the XT series is the Ilmore 6.0L MPI engine. Enjoy all-day power with 373 horsepower and 407 lbs of torque. MasterCraft designed the engine area with service in mind. Not only do engine divider tabs come down to give access to the sides of the engine but you can also easily access the front of the engine by flipping the rear convertible seat forward and releasing the tabs.
