    Perhaps the best getting better. Just about the only problem anyone mentioned with the prior version was tracking--while not bad at all--was maybe not as good as Nautique. Looks pretty cool!

    Great new boat from a company that is actually listening to its market. This addition will elevate MC's brand awareness and benefit all previous year models. I can’t wait to experience the wakes and driving experience. All of this w/o increasing the starting price. Any comments on the best flooring option?

    @Golfguy I really liked the snap in carpet we had in our '15. Came in and out easily, and rolled up nicely for storage. I'll either go carpet or decadence on the next one. Seadek may take a beating over time, plus I like the option of bare floors to keep the boat clean. More often than not, I'd just throw down bathroom mats to soak up water.

    @The_MS The bare floor on this new boat is supposed even better than the previous generation and should provide more traction.

    @The_MS I hate to agree with you about anything but I agree that Deckadence is the best boat flooring ever. I ran my first ProStar with the bare floor and like it too. It is the coolest possible option for the 110+ degree days we get here in summer.

    @MS you can't make those ice water jokes for much longer..... But there is plenty of material for the Redneck Riviera

    +1 for bare floor. Dries fast, doesn’t hold water.
    We put a thick towel folder in half in the rear corner to put jackets and gloves on, and most of the water goes out with that.
    Love it. Curious to see the new floor. And the back seats. Lighter and easier is a great plan there.
    Great boats.
    Nice work MC and team!

    Does anybody know if you can somehow ditch the raised lettering on the sides? I really don't want to try to keep all those cracks and crevices clean.

    @escmanaze and you @skimtb need to go into the retro plain flat white vinyl letter business. :D

    @skimtb why bother with a towel at all?!?


    The bare floor is a nice option its been offered in other boats thru the years yet MC seems to have done it very well. But Love the deck-a-dence it's hard to beat except when bone dry in the sun for long periods.

    @escmanaze I ordered a malibu several years back and just requested the letters be shipped along with the boat. Nice clean lines with a subtle emblem near the back. If you still get the letters loose then you can sell them with the boat (if they care) or you could sell individual letters to those that have them fall off. :). Anyone have an extra M?

    I've driven a couple of the current Prostars, one was setup and tracked way better than he other. Our sites are a bit tricky to drive which made it easy to choose the Nautique. If the tracking is improved and the price is right this is going to hit Nautique hard. I'm really looking forward to seeing this new boat and hope its as good as it looks.

    @RAWSki I’m not normal. All water is bad. Boat is put away bone dry.
    Just a trick I used on old boat w carpet and carried it to the new one. Because change is bad....

    Liquid Edge posted an additional video on Facebook showing the boat on the water. Here is the link:

    @Horton When do we see one on your ridiculously nice dock setup? Colors picked?

    Just found this video from Action Water Sports: https://www.facebook.com/100000162666167/videos/3610931065588947 In the middle of the video it shows the video display. At 5:50 in the video there is also a partial view of the open bow seating which is different but looks great. It is hard to tell on the video but the boat does sound quieter. In 2018 we switched to MasterCraft after owning 15 Malibu's. I thought our 2018 Prostar was all but perfect. I was totally amazed with MasterCraft's engineering at that time. The 2021 appears to be steps above our 2018. I hope I can talk my boat partner into getting a 2021!

    @skimtb I have picked my colors and can hardly wait. EVERYONE wants one right now so I do not know when I get mine.

    Well, it was nice owning the best ski boat out there ('17 prostar.) Guess I'll be settling for 2nd best now.

    I see there is now a clock in the zero off screen. That’s nice too. Minor, but seems silly the oldest ones you have to press a few buttons to get to time.

    @horton. don’t you have any “pull”. Pun intended.

    I would have to think build slots are going to fill up sooner than later.

    Did anybody else notice the "Engine Flush" connection at the stern? Genius. Should have been on every boat in the last 20 years.

    @MISkier i saw that, and it’s standard according the price list.

    @MISkier I don't think that's a new option. I know you've been able to get those on Malibus since the early '00s. Presumably they're not the only ones.

    It has been an option, probably standard on the coastal package. I purchased the kit from MC parts depot for ours. Just lazy I haven't put the connection on the transom yet, but did put in the check valve inline in the intake hose, and that is a big benefit already, I just have to go into the engine compartment to attach a hose till I run the hose to the transom and put in fitting.

    @UWSkier, that is the first one I've ever seen on any boat. Must be an option that people overlooked or otherwise traded for something else (like a radio).
