MasterCraft began four decades ago in a barn in Tennessee, when some folks who wanted more from a boat took a Ski Nautique hull and cut it in half, then built the hull they really wanted. Today MasterCraft owns the market for inboard ski boats, wakeboarding boats and sport craft. But three worlds could never be enough, and that's why we have the MasterCraft 300, the firm's first excursion into day-trip yachts.
The incipient exploration of a new market, by any company, is as wildly unpredictable as bog snorkeling - shoo-ins have taken terrible losses, sure losers have gone on to run the establishment. MasterCraft invited Luxist to Ft. Lauderdale for a ride to Nassau in the 30-foot vessel, and although we missed out on the dark and stormy night, we had an overcast and tempestuous day to come to our own conclusions about how the 300 might make a name for itself.
