    2002 MasterCraft X30 Ballast Upgrade For Wakesurfing

    MasterCraft-X30-ballast-upgrade

    We have had a lot of fun behind the early model MasterCraft X30 wakeboard boats. Since 2002 was the first year that MasterCraft added Jabsco Ballast pumps, it is important that you confirm that the system does not have the older aerator pumps. We have run into a fair amount of early model 2002's with the older system which we do have a solution for as well.

    If your boat has the Jabsco ballast pump system you will want to remove the above the floor hard tanks in the rear compartments. Replace them with either the 750 lb. Fly High Fat Sacs or the 1100 lb. Fly High Jumbo Surf sacs. If you opt for the larger bags you will not get close to that capacity. You should be able to optimize the space with the Fat Sacs just like in the picture above. We have a ballast upgrade kit specifically for the 2002 MasterCraft boats that comes with all hoses and fittings needed to make the switch. The process will only take you about 15 minutes. http://www.wakemakers.com/mastercraft-tankbuster-ballst-system-upgrade.html

    If you upgrade the rear lockers you will want to get some more weight up front as well to counter balance the load. We suggest adding the Fly High Integrated bow sac under the front seats. We can tie it into your factory KGB center ballast system. That should give you a realistic 400 to 450 lbs. up there. http://www.wakemakers.com/mastercraft-piggyback-bow-ballast-system.html

    Let me explain what is going to happen when you make these simple changes. For one your wake will be bigger because you are displacing the hull deeper in the water. That is good but isn't everything. We want to build a great shape as well. When surfing you will fill the surf side and also add weight to the bow. This will give you a great wave with a ton of length. If you want the wave to be taller let a little water out of the bow. Your speed will probably go up to between 11 and 11.5 depending on how full the boat is. When wakeboarding you will want to fill the bow and KGB to 100%. The rear port bag should be filled to between 50% and 75% full and the starboard rear bag should be at around 50% capacity. This will give you a great distribution of weight and should create a very equal clean wake at between 65 and 75 feet back depending on how fast the rider likes to go.

  • MasterCraft Brings Back The X30 For 2012

    MasterCraft Introduces New X-30 (January 18, 2012):
    The token badge of any crowded marketplace is the overwhelming sea of sameness - a lot of things are alike but very little is uniquely valuable. And while "alike" is not bad, being distinctly better is...well...best. With phones, Apple is the Kingpin. With liquid, it's Red Bull. And with luxury performance towboats, it's MasterCraft. And now with its recent introduction of the new 23-foot X-30, MasterCraft Boat Company has once again risen above the noisy fray to put its unrivaled stamp on the industry.

    One of the first features to capture the eye is the innovative, sleek design. Modeled after the critically acclaimed 2013 X-Star, the new MasterCraft X-30 offers a progressive flare why staying in touch with its time-honored heritage. At 23"4' in length and 102" in width, the new X-30 boasts a traditional bow, which is a design departure for the King of the Twin Tip. Nonetheless, the large bow has plenty of room for you and a few of your closest confidants, even if they are 6' 3". And underneath this social gathering is once again industry-leading storage, with the deep passenger gullwing storage continuing back through the length of the boat. Not only does the X-30 bow have you aptly covered with seating and storage, there is also a clever flip down door in the front that when opened exposes a stow away area for your anchor and rope.

    Moving to the back of the highly refined X-30, you are immediately greeted by luxurious yet functional wraparound seating. At the top of the list is the smartly designed convertible rear seat. In its normal position, it looks like any other wraparound seating configuration - however, with one simple move anyone can flip this rear perch to create a seat that can comfortably watch all the action at the end of the rope. There is also plenty of cargo space, with a massive coffin storage area on the port side and of course, the MasterCraft cooler and a trash receptacle intelligently hidden under the seat behind the driver.

    In addition, there are other important creature comforts designed to bring a little bit of your land life to the water. The X-30 comes standard with an exclusive JL Audio sound system, with digital amp and four high-end speakers. Add the optional the sub and sub-amp to make any on-water get together into a spectacle. Whether you prefer satellite radio, CDs or an iPod, the X-30 has you and the taste of any guest covered. In addition, the X-30 offers popular and convenient options like a cockpit table, billet aluminum walk-thru door, heater system and heated seats. Add in the stellar touch screen display and the driver will have as much convenience and comfort as anyone else.

    As you and your passengers head to the very rear of the X-30, you will not help but notice that MasterCraft has left no stone unturned and not underestimated the value of attention to detail. First we welcome anyone to the transom of the boat by placing a non-skid walk thru on the sunpad. Second, we placed a convenient and safety conscious step down to the platform which also serves as a perch while you put on any water sports gear. And finally, MasterCraft offers the "waterfall" like swim platform that allows any boarder to simply slide into the water.

    But as with any MasterCraft, the X-30 is as much about what happens behind the boat as what happens in it. And the X-30 will not disappoint. Thanks to an all-new hull designed for premium performance and wake shape, the X-30 is not only one of the best performance boats on the water but it puts fantastic wakes for any watersport enthusiast. Engage the optional attitude adjustment plate, and the X-30 can be worthy ski partner. Load up the nearly 1000 pounds of standard ballast and this boat will change the way you wakeboard. And maybe the most impressive is the sheer ability of the X-30 to produce one of the industry's best wakesurf wakes with very little effort. Load the boat up with even a minimal 400 lbs, deploy the optional surf tabs and behold a surf wake that can only be topped by something you would see at Bells Beach.

    So with the introduction of the X-30, MasterCraft invites you to let the best begin with the X-30. Best action. Best relaxation. Best social time. Best boat. And of course, the best summer of your life.

Then the Mastercraft TankBuster factory ballast system upgrade is your solution. Replace the factory hard tanks with our Mastercraft wakeboard ballast system to create a massive wakesurfing or wakeboarding wake.

This kit includes everything needed for the installation, including a new ballast bag and the necessary Fly High quick connect fittings.
