If you’re a serious rider with a hunger for hard-core wakes and a taste for high-end amenities, the Malibu 23 LSV might be your Wakesetter. The Malibu Boats V25 wake hull is designed to synergize ride, handling and wake performance. Standard rider presets make dialing up a personalized wake — and remembering it — easy and convenient. With so many options available for tricking this wakeboard boat out, including MaliView LCD screen, Power Wedge and premium Rockford Fosgate subwoofer and amps, buyers can create custom satisfaction.
INSIDE THE BOAT
With nine hand-wrapped pieces sporting color-coordinated accents, quality is on display in the Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV. Drivers won’t complain about long hours thanks to thoughtful cockpit ergonomics and a swivel seat with adjustable lumbar support. When the sun goes down, dimmable LED interior lighting creates a theaterlike atmosphere.
