The Response LXi, which pulled Chris Parrish to the Men's Slalom World Record, went back to the drawing board for '07. The new Response LXi demonstrates softer, flatter wakes at any line-length and speed as well as even more incredible handling characteristics. The stunning surface design makes you and your family look and feel as good, in the boat, as you will perform behind it.
Built on Malibu's new Cut Diamond hull, the 2007 Response LXi is a 3-event enthusiast's dream. The geometry of this new hull's running surface has been optimized to precisely command the flow of water, displace less water and create a softer, flatter wake. This design improvement along with the Response LXi's straight chine perpetuates extreme agility and a phenomenal rough-water ride. According to Dan Gasper, Malibu Boats Head Engineer, he and his team have been working to improve the award-winning SV23 Diamond hull since its inception. Those who have experience the new Cut Diamond hull have no doubt, they've done it.
Team Malibu professional slalom skier and ski school owner, Drew Ross is already a 2007 Response LXi believer. “The new Response LXi is the most amazing boat I have ever driven let alone skied.” Ross explained, “Whether aggressive or passive turns, this boat corners with control and absolutely no cavitation. Combine those characteristics with the awesome new look and interior design, the LXi is my dream boat! I can't wait to teach with it.”
The LXi is not only jam-packed with performance, but amazing features as well. Precision Pro Speed Control is standard in every Response LXi. This is a dual-mode system. You can choose between actual speed or RPM based speed control. It is extremely accurate and unbelievably easy to use. Together with a 320 horse power multi-port fuel injected power plant, Electronic Throttle Control (ETC), in-dash graphical LCD and customized underwater gear the Response LXi is decked-out right off the factory floor.
If you are looking for must-have options, add the Power Wedge and turn the LXi's whisper flat wakes to consistent rampy swells. Exclusive hydro-foil technology turns any Malibu boat into a wakeboarding machine, including the slalom record setting Response LXi.
The Response LXi accommodates a World Champion's family and gear as well as his or her record-breaking aspirations. The LXi provides luxurious room for 8 and eight people's stuff.ÿ The 11 cubic feet rear locking storage is capped with a split-lid for effortless rear seat and swim step access. The walk-ways surrounding the motor box are wide and the gunnels welcome even more gear. The new 1.5 cubic foot glove box is perfect for smaller valuables and made complete by a slip-less rubber tray and a 12-volt power source. Don't let its 20-foot, 6-inch stature fool you, this Malibu has room for it all.
Aside from amazing professional-level water sports and comfort, the 2007 Response LXi has a precision sports car presence on the water. The interior is the vinyl equivalent of hard core performance. Polished stainless, back-lit interior emblems and hand-wrapped vinyl accent pieces compliment the intricate plush upholstery design. Just as much attention to detail appears on the outside of the boat. The new Frame-less Vented Windshield is outlined by disappearing black and set off by polished stainless steel circle-vented corners. The 2007 Response LXi is also studded with 9 custom polished stainless steel pieces. Together with the aggressive gel coat graphics, these fine touches flatter the chiseled lines of this aggressive looking tow boat.
The Response LXi joins nineteen other 2007 Malibu boat models. Visit your nearest Malibu Boats dealer today and appreciate these new Malibu boats in person.
