Sit back, grab your favorite bevy, and spend the next 40 minutes letting Insane Zane tell you all about the new 2014 MasterCraft NXT wakeboard boat. This could be the best boat in the market under $50K. The new automated Gen2’ish surf tabs and factory ballast system will have this hull displaced and leaning.
There are three factory ballast tanks in the rear port, rear starboard and mid ship area. They all weigh 300lbs. for a total capacity of 900 lbs. Since MasterCraft is getting back to the basics they have done away with reversible ballast pumps and instead are filling and draining the ballast with dedicated aerator pumps. This will provide a boost in flow speed and should have all of the tanks full in less than 3 minutes.
The engineering and production department at WakeMakers are already developing the NXT Factory Ballast System Upgrade Kit. Their mission is to provide the optimal weight to get the most out of the NXT20 hull.
