MasterCraft has been working on a new slalom/3-Event Boat boat for a few years. When I say working on, I do not mean talking about it. I mean year round R&D. I mean guys with engineering degrees sanding on the bottoms of boats. That is not what MasterCraft told me. That is what my network of spies has told me.
Semi-officially I have heard that MasterCraft may unveil a new "direct drive boat" in Calgary next week. Direct drive usually means it is not a wakeboard or surf boat. They are not officially saying if it is a new slalom/3-Event Boat.
I will be in Calgary for the “MasterCraft Water Ski Shootout” so if they unveil the long awaited ski boat I will get to drive it, ski behind it and inspect it.http://www.mastercraftwaterskishootout.com/
