Exterior Styling

The bold new XT series styling lines and all-new gel coat colors give the XT24 a striking stance in the water distinguishable from across the lake. In addition to the fiberglass changes, you will find three new tower options for 2022. The new standard Z6 features standard clamping board racks, the Z8 adds power-assisted lowering and lifting. Looking for the most premium tower, the Z10 is a full-power option with bold styling.

Interior Styling and Comfort

As you climb into the XT24 you will find an all-new fiberglass walkthrough with transom inlaid step in the convertible flip seat. These improvements create an accessible entrance into the cockpit without having to walk on any vinyl. There are opportunities for quite a few rear-facing seats in the XT24. First is the convertible rear seat that flips into stadium seating and flat sun pad seating. Then, similar to the XT25, you will find flip-up stadium seating on both port and starboard side of the cockpit. All new to the XT series are redesigned transom seats with sliding bases that make relaxation while floating a unique experience.

One thing that sets MasterCraft apart from other boat manufacturers is seating ergonomics. Every seat in the cockpit is angled and curved to support all of your passengers on all-day excursions comfortably. The CoolFeel vinyl option offers a more luxurious feel while keeping your vinyl 30% cooler on those hot summer days.

Do you love the look of black on your interior vinyl? With CoolFeel you can have your black interior with the feel of a light grey even on hot days.

We love the driver’s seat in the XT24. Why? Not only is there a high-back helm seat, but you also have a nice thick bolster to help boost you up to see over the windshield. The driver’s seat also has a couple of cool features, including the ability to recline, move forward and backward, and swivel around. Another bonus we love on the 2022 XT24 is the relocated battery switch under the helm for easy access without leaving the driver seat.

Flooring

There are several flooring options available on all MasterCraft models.  The standard flooring selection is carpet. From there, you can option either Seadek or Decadence (featured in our video review).

Storage

As with all MasterCraft models, your storage options are limitless. In the XT24, you have the port side communicating storage under the observer seat that passes forward to the bow. You can find dedicated cooler storage and small bag/equipment storage under the starboard side seats. Need even more storage? The XT24 includes new storage cubbies above the ballast compartments. In the bow, the starboard seat cushion reveals another small bag storage area. In every MasterCraft, the centerline of the bow has dedicated anchor storage.

TECHNOLOGY

The XT24 has several screen options for 2022. In our video review, the boat features the Dual Screen Advanced option. This option allows you to add an optional rear-facing camera. The Dual Screen Advanced option features a 12-inch horizontal screen at the top that provides navigation, camera, depth, air temp, water temp, engine data, and plate locations. To the right of the steering wheel is a 10-inch touch screen that controls every boat system, including cruise and presets, audio, navigation, settings, lights, and accessories. The XT24 soft keys are next to the 10-inch screen to allow manual control for your horn, tabs, ballast, and navigation lights.

Today you can never have enough phone chargers. New for 2022 is optional wireless charges on the port and starboard side of the cockpit. These new phone charges bring the total available wireless charges in the boat to 5 (including the drivers). In addition to the wireless charges, there are USB charging ports located throughout the boat.

SURFSTAR

If you love to surf, you will want to take a test ride in the XT24 to experience the redesigned SurfStar surf system.

The redesigned plates and heavy-duty hydraulic actuators with position sensors will deliver waves in more accurate positions than ever before. The mellow wave boasts a nice transitional lip without losing push. As you take the tab out, the wave becomes steeper, moving push closer to the back of the boat for a nice wall of water.

2022 MasterCraft SurfStar

 

MasterCraft’s surf systems have always delivered your wave, your way. SurfStar takes that goal to a new level with enhancements to every piece of the system. With a new intuitive display and rapid surf settings, it is easier than ever before to go from cruising to surfing the perfect wave quickly. For the more advanced riders who like to customize their experience, you can toggle over to the custom surf screen and adjust each section (tabs, ballast, speed, etc.) to your liking. With SurfStar, you can save and name up to 30 profiles so you can always load the perfect surf wave for your riders.
