New Model: Mastercraft 300

A much waited unveiling during the Miami Show for a company Mastercraft usually associated, with fast runabout and ski running boats. The new 300 opens the quest for a cruiser from the US builder, may be come into case with the change of ownership happening a few dates back. The most intriguing factor of the new Mastercraft 300 is obviously the three pointed full bow. Normal questions arising here from the traditionalists, I am sure are if this opens up waves as a traditional pointed one. What is sure is thanks to this design element you have a forward double berth of much bigger proportions inside. The fullish bow also give a more spacious deck up top. Another different style element is the movable hard top with alloy frame and tinted glass to reduce the affect of sunlight. For a 30 feet boat the Mastercraft 300 offers more of a different concept to a more spacious one! The cockpit revolves around its central passageway with double sun lounges, l-shaped settees, and dual seats for the helm to starboard and passenger to port. Inside you have innovation capturing a layout as seen on fast boats but adding to it more space and luxury. Below in fact you have separate head upon entrance, galley, c-shaped settee, and a spacious double berth forward which can be separated by a blind. Performance figures have not been announced, as the same for engine choices what so far is communicated is that it takes twin engines, petrol or diesel totaling a max of 800hp.
