THE ALL-NEW 2024 AXIS A245

THE ALL-NEW 2024 AXIS A245
THE ALL-NEW 2024 AXIS A245

THE ALL-NEW 2024 AXIS A245

For 2024, Axis Wake™ introduces the all-new A245. Completely redesigned from the hull up and sitting at 24.5 feet long, this is the most aggressive Axis ever built and packed with straightforward functionality and the latest Axis innovations, it’s also the most advanced. The A245 is an ingenious combination of scalable performance, all-day comfort, and class-leading technology all wrapped up into a package complete with the signature Axis style buyers love.

2024 Axis A245 Specifications

Length: 24’ 5” / 7.46 M
Beam: 102 IN / 2.6 M
Seating Capacity: 18
Weight: 5,500 LBS / 2,495 KG
Engine: Powerful, Reliable, Quiet, and Clean – Malibu Monsoon M5Di™, M6Di or LT4 Powered by GM Marine
Fuel Capacity: 94 G / 356 L
Effective Ballast with Wedge Deployed: 5,300 LBS / 2,404 KG
“With all-new features, a massive pickle-fork bow, unbelievable wake and wave performance, and a fresh, new look, the A245 is sure to be one of the most popular Axis models in history,” said CEO, Jack Springer.

Fans of the A245’s wildly popular predecessor, the Axis A24, know the appeal of a pickle-fork bow, and the A245’s spacious bow takes things to a whole different level of comfort and convenience. The bow is complete with all the amenities Axis fans love, like plush marine-grade vinyl, multiple cupholders, Wet Sounds speakers, and a wind dam to help keep the lounge warm on cooler days. Bow entry points are covered with non-skid Malibu Soft Grip flooring for sure footing and a stylish accent to the bow’s progressive look.

Another standout feature of the all-new A245 is the massive wraparound lounge. Axis thought of everything passengers need for long days on the lake with a full crew of 18 people. Storage is plentiful and hinged for easy access under seats, cupholders are always within reach, and up to eight speakers flood the lounge with balanced sound at every seat. The lounge seating can be quickly and easily reconfigured so passengers can watch wakeboarding and wakesurfing in total comfort. Optional Chill-Ax pop-up seat backs lift into place and make a secure, comfortable seat on both sides of the lounge, and the Rear-Facing Sliding Skybox Seat™ with optional lean backs brings the comfort and convenience of a fully convertible bench seat with seating that fits three across. Soft Grip flooring covers the lounge floor and leads to a deck drain for easy cleanup, and several heater hoses take the edge off chilly lake days.

Above the lounge, the sleek and stylish AW20 tower has a simple locking mechanism and a low-fold ability to provide plenty of clearance for bridges and boat lifts. Customers can also opt for gas-assist shocks that make the AW20 almost weightless, even while fully loaded with up to four board racks and speakers. New for 2024, available PTM Clamp Force 3.0 board racks feature an intuitive ratchet and swivel function that makes retrieving boards simpler than ever.

The A245’s helm gives owners options to scale functions up or down based on the way they will use their boat. The Axis Dash comes standard with a 7-inch Garmin touch screen giving you access to all your watersports and driving vitals. Upgrade to the Sport Dash for an additional tactile keypad and rotary dial that controls all the boat’s watersports functionality in a quick and easy interface. And for the ultimate captain’s experience, the Premium Sport Dash features a wireless phone charger with top-of-the-line Soft Grip finishes for a stylish and ultra-functional driving experience.

Built with watersports in mind, the A245 has a Soft Grip-covered walkway over the sun pad to the swim platform for sure footing in this heavily traveled path. Available filler cushion insert completes the lounge to make a seamless flow of vinyl from the lounge to the sun pad for a clean overall look from bow to stern.

Wakeboarders and wakesurfers will marvel at the effortless, pro-level performance of the A245. The Wake Plus™ Hull produces clean faces that stand up to challenging water and wind conditions, and 5,300 pounds of ballast —including Power Wedge® III —fill the wake and wave out to its maximum potential. Working side-by-side with these powerful wake tools, Malibu’s iconic Surf Gate® produces a perfectly shaped wave on either side of the boat without the need to move any ballast around. Control the wake and wave energy with Power Wedge III, Malibu’s patented reverse hydrofoil wake shaper that Axis also employs. Power Wedge III can take the wake or wave from steep and aggressive to longer and more relaxed with the touch of a button from the Malibu Command Center—or while surfing with Surf Band®. Surf Band gives the rider instant feedback by customizing the wave right from their wrist. Riders can adjust the wave’s characteristics with Power Wedge III, nudge the boat speed up or down, raise or lower tower speaker volume, and switch their surf side with Surf Gate.

On the outside, the A245’s aggressive styling lines take their cues from the popular Axis A225. Side contours give the boat depth in and out of the water. The rub rail smoothly flows around the boat, following the sharp lines of the progressive pickle-fork bow perfectly, and stylized LED docking lights complete the bow’s new look. New Sapphire Teal and Maya Blue base gelcoats can combine with new metallic gelcoats in Capri Green, Sapphire Teal, Maya Blue, Sienna Coral, Ebony Indy, Ebony Vivid Metallic, and Ruby Red Metallic for a look that’s totally new and customizable for 2024.

The ambitious all-new Axis Wake A245 exceeds the high standards set by its predecessor and brings the Axis brand into new territory with a hull that exceeds 24 feet. As with all Axis models, the feature set and performance difference are best experienced on the water, so contact your local dealer for a test drive today.

MasterCraft and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® have joined forces to make a meaningful difference in the lives of families across the country. By coming together, these two Tennessee-based organizations aim to raise funds and awareness in support of the life-saving mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children®.

MasterCraft’s ‘Surf to Save Lives’ Campaign Dedicated to Raising Awareness and Funds
to Support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.®

Former Professional Wakeboarder and Childhood Cancer Survivor Alexa Score
Named Official Spokesperson for ‘Surf to Save Lives’ Campaign

VONORE, Tenn., May 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MasterCraft Boat Company, the world’s best-selling towboat boat brand five years running, today announced a partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and the launch of its ‘Surf to Save Lives’ campaign benefitting St. Jude. The two Tennessee-based organizations have joined forces with the goal of bringing together the boating community to raise awareness and support the work of St. Jude in researching and treating childhood cancer and other catastrophic pediatric diseases.

Through the shared commitment of enriching the lives of families and making memories possible, MasterCraft’s and St. Jude’s joint effort around the Surf to Save Lives campaign will allow boaters from all over the country to do what they love, while raising money for a good cause. From now until October 1, 2023, MasterCraft will donate $1 for every minute of on-water activity logged on the MasterCraft app, with a maximum donation of $75,000. Boaters can raise funds while enjoying their favorite tow sports like wakeboarding, water-skiing or wakesurfing. This fundraising and awareness campaign is not limited to only MasterCraft owners. Any boat owner can participate by simply downloading the MasterCraft app and logging their towing time.

“We’re proud to partner with St. Jude and announce our Surf to Save Lives campaign, as the program provides us with the opportunity to make a real difference by raising funds and increasing awareness for a worthy cause,” said Fred Brightbill, CEO of MasterCraft Boat Holdings. “Boating is a family-oriented activity, and we felt there was a great opportunity to engage the greater boating community by asking them to log their behind-the-boat time to raise funds and help families in need all around the country.”

Former professional wakeboarder, TV host, and MasterCraft Ambassador Alexa Score will serve as the spokesperson for the Surf to Save Lives campaign.

“As a survivor of childhood leukemia, a type of blood cancer, this cause is near and dear to my heart,” said Score. “Having benefited from life-saving medical care myself, I am proud to be involved in this campaign and to combine my love of watersports with the opportunity to contribute to the vital work being done by St. Jude to help kids with cancer. I hope everyone joins me by downloading the MasterCraft Connect app and getting out on the water to help us help St. Jude carry out its mission.”

While the entire campaign will run between May and October, MasterCraft will host additional St. Jude Surf to Save Lives activations around the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament (ACC) in Lake Tahoe, CA on July 12-16. Prominent celebrities and attending guests can join MasterCraft on the water to log their activity time and raise money for St. Jude. Throughout the entirety of the campaign, MasterCraft dealerships across the country will also host on-water demo days, providing consumers with an opportunity to experience the latest MasterCraft models and partake in Surf to Save Lives.

When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was largely considered incurable. Since then, St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate from 20% to more than 80%. St. Jude provides customized care for some of the world’s sickest children regardless of their race, ethnicity, beliefs, or ability to pay. And families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food—so they can focus on helping their child live.

In addition to the company’s contribution through the Surf to Save Lives campaign, MasterCraft employees can make a pledge to St. Jude through an Employee Giving Program.
