The brand-new MasterCraft MariStar 255′s luxury focus radiates from the flip-down armrests and billet aluminum speaker grilles of the plush pickle-fork bow all the way to the transom’s contoured rear seat backs and diamond-stitched sun pad. In between lie a host of we’ve-spared-no-expense appointments designed to keep even the most demanding do-it-all family comfortable all-day long. All that extravagance lies on the new smooth-riding, modified deep-V hull, which you can outfit with wake-centric options to suit your riding ambitions, from the edgy style and function of the Zero Flex tower to the wake-boosting three-tank ballast system.
The MasterCraft MariStar 255′s standing-room head is the exclamation point on this luxury liner’s promise of all-day comfort. The head’s locking door conceals a VacuFlush toilet, freshwater sink and vanity with Corian countertop – even a stereo remote and iPod jack.

The MasterCraft MariStar 255 shares its brand-new hull with the X-55, so when you load up the more than 1,100 pounds of available factory ballast, you get the same great ramps – one of MasterCraft’s best straight-from-the-factory wakes. That new modified, deep-V hull also handles chop and rollers like an ocean liner and churns up a stellar surf wake.
