Ski Boat Review
For a family seeking out the ultimate in ski boat luxury, inside and out, the Malibu Boats Sunscape 23 LSV is an ideal fit. The V25 Diamond hull dishes up a super smooth ride while delivering a wake suitable for everyone in the family, no matter their water-sports interests. With room for a bounty of friends, impressive handling and sleek styling, this 23-foot Malibu Boats V-drive indulges its owners with performance, space and a plethora of options — like the all-new weightless, gas-spring-assisted Illusion G3 wakeboard tower.
The Malibu Sunscape 23 LSV is a posh ride with functional elements that are sure to please. Owners will love the standard removable refreshment table, available snap-out carpets and LED theater-style interior lighting. The wraparound lounge and spacious bow fit up to 14 people, and with the flip-up bolster driver’s seat and optional sport seating, this cruiser can double as a party boat with space to spare.
The Malibu Sunscape 23 LSV has plenty of potential as an all-around water-sports machine. Get plenty of water displacement for advanced wakeboard moves with the optional ballast and Malibu Boats Power Wedge. Or simply set your desired skiing speed with the Precision Pro Speed Control for advanced recreational slalom sets in the open water.
1. Tunes: The optional Malibu Boats Rockford Fosgate sound system houses 1 GB (roughly 250 songs) of memory and comes with a Malibu-branded 4 GB pocket drive.
2. Sun deck walk-over: For the meticulous LSV owner, a worry-free sun deck walk-over protects the already-resilient upholstery.
3. Cruising lights: The available swim step, docking and pop-up bow lights transition the 23 LSV safely and stylishly into a nighttime cruiser.
