The mere fact that this is MasterCraft’s best-selling boat and possibly the best-selling inboard on the market speaks volumes about the 205V. The manufacturer is proud to say that this is its most versatile boat. It is built from the same hull and has the same engine as the X-Star, so its wakeboarding potential is unlimited. It provides high-end recreational slalom capabalities, and with its speed and performance it even works well for barefooters. MasterCraft also notes this is its best-turning, best-performing V-drive. This boat will please the person desiring a ski boat without the engine in the middle of the boat.
The ProStar 205V is a fairly compact V-drive, but MasterCraft’s interior provides all the room you need for 12 passengers. The open bow is especially spacious. This boat has some familiar MasterCraft luxury features, such as a wood-grained dash, aluminum bezeled gauges, driver’s side cup holder, finger-tip stereo remote, MasterView driver’s bolster seat, speakers with separate tweeters and through-hull storage from the bow to the stern going under all the seats.
MasterCraft tried to incorporate the maneuverability and towing ability of a direct-drive with the speed and cushion of a V-drive and succeeded wildly. There’s nothing this boat can’t do and no one it cannot satisfy. If you want world-class wakeboarding performance and credible slalom performance,without all the splashy graphics or if you just like the good things in life, you’ll feel at home in the ProStar 205V.
With the same hull design as the pro tour’s X-Star, this luxurious family boat is a wakeboarding machine in disguise. Its V-drive configuration is one of the first available in a high-performance tournament boat, which means proven reliability.
The abundant storage capacity easily accommodates all-day ski trips.
An easily adjustable driver’s seat is equipped with MasterView bolster seating for increased lake visibility.
The throttle and armrest for the driver are in position for optimal performance and comfort.
Driver’s-side Clarion CD stereo controls at your fingertips.
The cooler is first-class in size, but is fairly hard to access.
The latches to the rear storage compartments are in an awkward place for easy access.
