The all-new Malibu Wakesetter 22 VLX hits Aussie shores.
If you’re in the boating world and don’t know Malibu Boats, it’s safe to say you’ve been living under a rock, or you’re just a fisherman – the latter is probably more likely. Either way, Malibu is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of watersports boats and is renowned for building a quality product with oodles of cool innovation.
New for Malibu in 2015 is the Wakesetter 22 VLX. A complete redesign of the previous 21 VLX model, this new 6.65m offering is packed with all the gizmos and gadgets that get skiers, tubers and wakeboarders hot under the wetsuit. It features a new running surface for perfect wakes and waves, Zero Off GPS speed control, Surf Gate and ballast systems. Also fresh for 2015, and incorporated into the 22 VLX, is the Power Wedge II, which Malibu says, “builds even better wakes and has been engineered to get boats on the plane much faster.”
It’s definitely a serious understatement to say Malibu is proud of its 2015 line-up. “Our product-development team has delivered more new innovations (this year) than ever before in our 33-year history”, Malibu Boats CEO, Jack Springer, says. “We’ve made this the most versatile 22-foot (6.65m) boat on the market.”
