Whether you’re new to wakesurfing or just looking for more room at a price that won’t break the bank, the room-for-16 NXT24 is a great way to start your MasterCraft experience.

Sit in the sculpted, high-quality captain’s chair and power up the easy-to-use touchscreen with its five-button interface. The NXT24 is equipped with MasterCraft’s award-winning GEN2 Surf System, which allows you to create custom profiles for the friends and family who ride with you, and generate more sizes and shapes of wakes and waves than even the most discerning enthusiast could demand. Whether your riders are big or small, aggressive and experienced, or tentative and just learning, creating a wake or surf wave to suit them is in your command. And the NXT24 allows you to do all this in a simple and intuitive manner. Optionally, you can add the DockStar Handling package, a game-changing system that takes most of the stress out of docking the boat in challenging conditions like wind, current or tight spaces.

True wake-sports enthusiasts will note that the NXT24 displaces 5,000 pounds and carries 2,600 pounds of additional ballast—and can carry that full ballast at up to 22 mph. So, whether you’re seeking a wake with gentle transitions or powerful, lippy waves, or anything in between, the NXT24 lets you deliver the goods—and then some. The standard ZFT2 Tower is built to last, easily folds, and can be fitted with a Bimini top with surf sleeves that provides shade for the cockpit. Base power is Ilmor Marine’s 380 hp 6.0L MPI.

Crew comfort starts in the spacious bow lounge, made possible by the NXT24′s pickle-fork hull design. Order the optional cushion for playpen seating. Aft, the U-shaped seating can easily accommodate a large crew and, as in the bow, the upholstery looks as good as it feels. Stowage below the seating is massive and easily accessed thanks to seats that flip open on sturdy hinges.

From the black anodized accents throughout to the innumerable subtleties of crafting the wake and wave shapes, MasterCraft attended to all of the details when creating the NXT24.

2021 Moomba Mondo

Moomba's Mondo is a multisport crossover machine that's capable of pulling wakeboarders, wakesurfers and even slalom skiers.

Don’t let the smaller size of the Moomba Mondo fool you, this all-new 20-footer boasts 3,700 pounds of ballast, which would be impressive for a 23-foot boat. That ballast load means the Mondo has both bark and bite, making it one of the more versatile 20-footers in the market—a true multisport crossover machine. The wakeboarding wakes and wakesurfing waves combine a good amount of volume with a user-friendly shape (i.e., great for the whole family, including the little ones just learning), but the Mondo’s smaller size means you can even slalom ski recreationally behind it. With room for 13, anybody on board can ride whatever board (or ski) they’d like—further setting the Mondo apart.

The Mondo continues that separation in the interior with a smart, well-thought-out design that doesn’t add extra costs to the consumer. For example, the cup holders, phone holders and USB charging ports are spread conveniently throughout the cockpit, the bow is deep and spacious, and comes standard with a removable filler cushion in the walkway, the nonskid GatorStep flooring extends from the bow to the walk-through transom and all the way to the swim platform, and even the corners of the seatbacks are rounded and padded for added comfort.

The helm features an ergonomically designed armrest next to the throttle, easy-to-see intuitive controls, and an optional 7-inch touchscreen display.

The helm is one of the most impressive aspects of the Mondo. It’s simple yet functional, and stylishly designed. There’s a wireless charging pad for your phone, ergonomically designed armrest next to the throttle, easy-to-see intuitive controls, and an optional 7-inch touchscreen display. From the touchscreen, much of the Mondo’s functions are easily controlled, including AutoWake, which automatically detects the boat’s riding attitude and makes adjustments as needed to keep the wake or wave at the optimal shape per the rider’s settings. The Fusion head unit is also conveniently placed beneath the touchscreen, so adjusting the tunes is easy.

Overall, the Mondo has elevated our rising opinion of what 20-foot water-sports boats are capable of—in everything from comfort to performance. It’s one of the more well-designed boats we’ve seen in its class.
