MasterCraft Boat Holdings Expands Portfolio with Aviara
New Brand Forges a New Niche of Progressive Luxury in the Day Boat Segment
MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCFT) expands into the day boat category with today’s announcement of its newest brand, Aviara.

On an Aviara, captains become hosts and entertainment is top priority. Aviara designers have re-imagined the luxury day boat experience, creating an open deck layout with modern comfort that prioritizes social interaction. Aviara delivers premium standard features and appointments, and elevated control beginning at the clean, digital-forward helm and carried through to the premium audio that enhances the on-board experience. Aviara’s are available in both sterndrive and outboard propulsion options.
The company’s vetted vendor relationships and exclusive partnerships with leading companies factor into the premium design, innovation and quality in every boat.
