If you’re going to make waves, this is the way you do it.

Just launched — literally — MasterCraft’s X26 is, as one Internet commenter put it, “one badass boat.”

At 26 feet in length, the X26 is a roomy, decadent beast. Holds up to 18 people and offers a ton of customizable extras: a built-in head, hidden Igloo coolers, GoPro camera mounts, etc. Easy to control, too: it’s all touch screen, except for the joystick-controlled bow thrusters, built for maneuvering around tight spots or for superior docking.

But it’s the wake-shaping abilities that set this boat apart.

Featuring a 2,800-pound rotocast ballast tank and an engine designed by the same people who built 18 champion cars at the Indy 500, the X26 churns out long, luscious, bespoke waves.

And we do mean bespoke: your waves are sculpted by MasterCraft’s ingenious Gen 2 Surf System, a mechanism that produces four different “zones” of wake to accommodate riders of all styles and experience levels.

Hey, it’s still technically summer. Never too late to get out on the water.

Some video of the X26 is below.
