Three New Models from NauticStar

January 2019 News

NauticStar Boats, a subsidiary of MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc.,
has been reinvesting in the business at an accelerated pace, specifically,
modernizing the plant and developing leading edge new products. The Company
launched the new 195 Bay Boat in August, followed by the 251 Hybrid in
September, and will be debuting its largest offshore model yet, the 32 XS
Offshore at the Miami International Boat Show.

“To say ‘we have been busy at NauticStar’ is an understatement,” NauticStar
President Tim Schiek said in a statement. “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 fresh new look and a new 25-foot model to NauticStar’s
very successful hybrid lineup. This unique multi-purpose vessel offers the perfect
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. This outstanding saltwater performer delivers
all the necessary fishing features for the serious angler with a smooth, dry,
comfortable ride with cutting edge styling and comfort features never before seen
in a boat of this style and size.

With its 10’ 6” beam, the 32 XS Offshore offers a spacious and comfortable 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 Qt. 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-up for
a spacious fishing deck with sizable, in-floor fish boxes and large port side dive

“Engineered for exceptional reliability and performance, the new 32 XS Offshore
carries forward NauticStar’s 100% wood-free construction and one-piece foam
filled fiberglass stringer system,” said Ryan Witt, 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,”
Schiek added. “These new models are truly exciting and we look forward to
introducing many great new models in the future.”

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.
