If you own a MasterCraft superyacht tender, you’re in for a treat. MasterCraft Boats UK, which operates the tenders division for the builder, will arrange for world-champion wakeboarder Dan Nott (above and below) to fly out to your yacht. He’ll teach you and your family super-cool maneuvers behind the boat, whether you’re a novice or experienced.
To say Nott is a champion is an understatement. He’s a two-time world finalist, a four-time European champion, and a multiple UK national champ. Nott has also been on the British Wakeboarding Team for 20 years—and he’s just 35 years old. In fact, he’s been wakeboarding since he was 10. In addition, Nott has coached plentiful superyacht owners and crews when it comes to driving MasterCraft tenders, to ensure riders enjoy the best waves. Plus, he’s worked with newcomers to both wakeboarding and wakesurfing.
What’s the difference between the two sports? With wakeboarding, a tow rope pulls the rider. By contrast, in wakesurfing, the tow rope only serves to help the rider get up on the wave. Many watersports enthusiasts consider wakesurfing easier to learn, since the boat goes slower. Plus, your landing is softer, resulting from the inevitable falls as you learn to maintain your balance.
Regardless of what you want to perfect, the MasterCraft superyacht tenders team will fly Nott out to you. In fact, it will do so no matter where your yacht is. He’s already worked with owners and crews in Monaco, St. Tropez, and other Mediterranean destinations, for example. Furthermore, Nott can conduct lessons over a day, a weekend, or a few days, depending on your needs. He’s equally comfortable coaching grown-ups as he is kids. Also noteworthy, Nott can conduct crew-only coaching days.
