When it came time for Ken Block to choose a boat for his summer boating needs, he had two requirements: for it to be the best wakeboard boat possible and for it to match his current racecars. A tall order, but something that Mastercraft was confident they could deliver upon.
So, for cruising with his family or making the ultimate waves while wakeboarding with his friends this summer, Block will be boating around his home state of Utah in a custom one-off Mastercraft X30 wakeboard boat. Designed to align with his current 2015 racecar livery, Block’s X30 has all of the great features that a normal X30 comes with, but also includes a unique exterior finish that incorporates Block’s “intergalactic” space theme from this season, as well as his signature 43 racing number. Additionally the boat features a blacked-out Zero-Flex Tower and custom-trimmed interior to match, all combining to make this one of the most unique boats on the water.
“I’m really happy with how this project turned out,” said Block. “I absolutely love boating on the lakes here in Utah with my family and I really enjoy wakeboarding. So, when it was time for me to get a new boat for this summer, we reached out to Mastercraft to see what could be done to make something that was unique but that utilized the X30. Mastercraft absolutely nailed the execution of my 2015 livery on this thing and the murdered out wake tower is a nice touch. It really helps tie the whole thing together when I’m towing it with my Ford Raptor, seeing it parked next to my Ford Fiesta ST RX43 rallycross competition car is a trip as well. I can’t wait to take it down to Lake Powell later this summer.”
