Mastercraft XT22-T

July 4, 2022

MasterCraft Boat Company announces the XT22 T as the newest member of the XT family, featuring a traditional bow to deliver more adaptability, performance and reliability for model year 2023.

On June 22, 2022, MasterCraft Boat Company, a MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCFT) subsidiary, announced the newest member to the XT family, the XT22 T. The XT22 T boasts the same best-in-class on-water performance as the XT22 and X22, but with a traditional bow for those seeking classic styling without compromise. Featuring superior behind-the-boat performance with SurfStar, plus ample comfort and space in a 22-foot package, the all-new XT22 T makes on-water traditions bigger and better than before. ¬¬

“For the boater looking for a multitude of options and best-in-class athletic performance, but prefers a traditional and timeless style, the XT22 T is truly the best of both worlds,” said George Steinbarger, Chief Revenue Officer at MasterCraft. “Our XT customers demand the best, and we delivered it tenfold with the XT22 T. From world-class wakes and waves to unmatched comfort within it, now you can get everything you ever wanted in a 22-foot XT coupled with traditional styling. This boat is sure to amplify any summer.


The all-new XT22 T includes new XT hull side styling features, along with an updated wraparound windshield, refreshed upholstery design, enhanced transom lounge seating and a transom walkthrough.

Sporting a traditional bow, the XT22 T features a unique U-shaped seating area with extensive hinged under-seat storage that easily fits up to 14 people. Complete with options like a convertible flip seat, pop-up seat backs, flip up backrests for transom lounge seating and an all-new flip-down swimstep, this boat is game for long summer days of on-water relaxation. Plus, the XT22 T keeps you cool on long summer days with optional bow, aft and side shade options.

New for MY23, the XT22 T is equipped with canvas upgrades to the Bimini, allowing for built-in storage of up to six boards. Combined with updated standard clamping board racks, crews can store an industry-leading total of ten boards for more options and more fun.

The XT22 T is available with three tower options, two board rack options, and two to four tower speaker options to elevate the audio experience behind-the-boat. Six Klipsch audio cockpit speakers create a crystal-clear sound system for the crew watching the action from inside the boat.


The XT22 T delivers unbelievable athletic performance behind the boat. Equipped with SurfStar, the XT22 T offers the most customizable wakes and waves in the industry at the touch of a button. User-friendly software allows for quick and precise adjustments, while the industry’s strongest actuators with position sensors deliver clean, consistent wave shapes at every level.

The XT22 T can be equipped to get on the water nearly 3x faster with optional FastFill. MasterCraft’s FastFill technology uses pumps that fill and empty ballast tanks in about 4 minutes at a rate of 30 gallons per minute.

Plus, because the XT22 T belongs to the most adaptable and athletic family in the lineup, it’s versatile for any on-water activity. Not only does the boat create the ideal wake for wakeboarding and wake surfing, it also allows families looking to tube or water ski the ability to do so with ease, thanks to the all-new pop-up ski pylon for 2023.

Every MasterCraft is handcrafted by experts using the highest quality materials and tested relentlessly. The XT22 T is constructed with triple-density foam seating, billet aluminum accents, a thicker gelcoat, and the most premium marine vinyl available. Additionally, MasterCraft performs over 1,400 quality checks per boat before each one is sold.

Between premium craftsmanship and dependable partners like Ilmor Marine, spend less time worrying and more time on the water in the XT22 T. Ilmor is MasterCraft’s exclusive engine partner, providing the industry’s most responsive, robust and reliable engines. The XT22 T comes standard with Ilmor’s 6.0L engine, along with the industry’s most comprehensive, 7-year/1,000 hr warranty.

The XT22 T also comes with MasterCare, featuring a fully factory-backed 5-year/500-hour comprehensive warranty with minimal exclusions. Paired with an award-winning dealer network, MasterCraft’s reliability and support ensures the best customer experience in the industry.

The all-new XT22 T delivers timeless styling without compromising on space and comfort. With the XT22 T, on-water traditions are about to get bigger and better. The XT22 T is now available. To learn more, visit
