At 21 feet long and 96 inches wide, the MasterCraft X-9 offers families lots of growing room while providing excellent water ski performance and beefy wakeboard wakes. The X-9 gives direct drive enthusiasts tight tracking, sculpted wakes and plenty of power from a 5.7 liter, fuel-injected, 310 hp, V-8 Predator engine. It also has 1 more foot of beam and 2 more feet of length than the X-7. That adds up to considerably more storage space, a larger open bow and more walking room amidship than most other models in its class. The X-9 also derives value from its increased fun factor. Just ask the critics at Powerboat Magazine who voted the X-9 2001`s `Towboat of The Year`. It seats 12 people comfortably and at varying speeds has wakes perfectly adapted for skiing, sliding, wake skating and wakeboarding aerials. In and out of the boat, everyone`s senses will be heightened by the X-9`s amplified 4-speaker Clarion AM/FM CD stereo system, aluminum Zero Flex Flyer tower, new special edition clamping board racks, double KGB ballast system, new graphics, a new chrome steering wheel cap, a new pylon top, a new chrome shifter knob, stainless steel windshield stanchions and a stainless steel glove box latch.
