NauticStar Boats, a subsidiary of MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc., recently launched the new 195 Bay Boat in August 2018, followed by the 251 Hybrid in September 2018, and will be debuting its largest offshore model yet, the 32 XS Offshore at the Miami International Boat Show in February.
“To say ‘we have been busy at NauticStar’ is an understatement,” said NauticStar President Tim Schiek. “We have assembled a strong team of marine experts focused on delivering the highest quality and best performing boats in their segment. This is not only driving continuous improvement in our boat building processes, but throughout the entire organization. We have also implemented a more disciplined product development process that is delivering more new products, at a faster cadence, with increased consumer insights and innovation that ultimately will deliver the best boating experience for our consumers at a reasonable price.”
The 251 Hybrid offers a new look and a new 25-foot model to NauticStar’s hybrid lineup. This multi-purpose vessel offers the size and features for a family-friendly pleasure boat and a tournament-ready fishing platform.
NauticStar has also moved into the 30-foot plus category with its newest member of the family: the 32 XS Offshore.
With its 10-foot-6-inch beam, the 32 XS Offshore offers a spacious bow that features large forward lounge seating with arm rests and plush wrap-around bow seats. The head console has a fully lined interior with a sink, SeaDek floor and electric flush toilet. It has a spacious and ergonomic helm to allow for dual 12-inch or 16-inch multifunction displays.
The leaning post features ergonomically correct Llebrock double billfish seats with flip-up bolsters and pivot arms. It has a sink, tackle storage, and a slide-out, 35-quart YETI cooler. The D-channel, integrated T-top can be fitted with a variety of options such as a retractable shade, and fold-down cockpit television. Aft, the jump seats flip-down for a spacious fishing deck with sizable, in-floor fish boxes and large port side dive door.
“Engineered for exceptional reliability and performance, the new 32 XS Offshore carries forward NauticStar’s 100 percent wood-free construction and one-piece foam filled fiberglass stringer system," said Ryan Witt, NauticStar Director of Engineering. "Additionally, we’ve added some great new design features such as sculpted hull sides, a side-entry cockpit door, and large insulated in-floor fish boxes. The 32 XS Offshore also features cutting edge technologies with NaviOP digital vessel control system and Klipsch custom tuned audio system.”
“I am very proud of the team and all they have accomplished over the past year. These new models are truly exciting and we look forward to introducing many great new models in the future,” Schiek said.
The 251 Hybrid and 32 XS Offshore will be on display in Miami at booth A237 and available for test rides in the Yamaha in-water display.
