Like its X-Series counterpart, the X-35, the MasterCraft MariStar 235 is a smooth-riding, versatile performer that’s a great choice for big multisport families. In a nod to its family-friendly luxury layout, the MasterCraft MariStar 235 trades in a seat in the wraparound lounge for a wet bar and available refrigerator. You won’t miss the space. With its stretch-to-the-limit, 102-inch beam and voluminous pickle-fork bow, this 23-foot wakeboard boat feels like it has room for even more than its 16-person capacity. Crank up the MasterCraft MariStar 235′s wake factor by adding the Zero Flex tower, stellar X-Series board racks and optional three-tank ballast system.
With its new diamond-stitch vinyl and contoured seat backs, the MasterCraft MariStar 235′s massive interior is maxed out for comfort. It’s full of function, too. With a lift and tug, this bench-style passenger seat converts from forward- to rear-facing.
