MasterCraft has made its foray into the big boat business with its latest offering, the MasterCraft 300. With the 30-foot, 4-inch twin inboard (the platform adds another 3.5 feet) boat, the company wants to reset a boat buyer’s expectations about how a day-tripper should make its owner feel. A recreational vessel like no other, its cockpit features big-boat electric equipment standard. Still, you can also opt for the Raymarine E80 and get a systems monitor with maps, radar, and a 3-D terrain view of the ocean floor. The boat’s tinted glass hardtop is lined with a misting system. Guests can lounge on the transom’s adjustable seating with custom wet bars on either side. There is also space to accommodate an electric grill or a Flatscreen. The 300 is the first boat in the segment with a twin-tipped monohull, which opens up space in the interior cabin. The interior boasts of hardwood cabinets and hardwood floors, ultra-leather fabrics, a galley with all the mod-cons, and a stand-up shower with a full-sized door. There is also a room with a big bed for you to take a short nap in. What is more, the room includes a Contour Zone remote (or C-Zone to you, Commodore), which puts you in pushbutton control of all the boat’s electrical systems.
A boat for the recreational luxury lover, it is definitely a class apart.
