Goods: MasterCraft – Zero Flex Tower 4

MasterCraft Introduces the Zero Flex Tower 4

Vonore, TN — In a move that continues to offer boat owners an unmatched choice of premium options, MasterCraft Boat Company now introduces its all-new Zero Flex Tower 4 (ZFT 4).  The ZFT 4 not only has the signature MasterCraft styling but it comes with phenomenal functionality as well.  With all new quick release handles, it takes just a simple pull of a lever and the tower will easily lower removing the headache of storage and traveling. And while the ZFT 4 has more curves than its ZFT 2 sibling, its form does not compromise the enduring strength and stability found in the ZFT 2 and ZFT 5p.   And while it is difficult to find any system as easy the rotating clamping board racks introduced by MasterCraft nearly a decade ago, the ZFT 4 now offers a system even easier.  The new MasterCraft ZFT 4 now comes with quick release clamps to swivel the board rack in meaning even less hassle to get boards in and out of their holding cells.

The ZFT 4 is now available for any new 2012 MasterCraft Boat orders.
