Ski Boat Review
As the largest V-drive in Malibu’s lineup at just under 25 feet long, the Wakesetter 247 LSV is an ideal inboard for families that enjoy their water sports on large waterways. Beyond the 247’s standout massive main cabin area, the boat can hold 17 people, it features more than 20 cup holders, multiple-access coolers and a plethora of storage options. A large 84-gallon tank allows daylong boat excursions without returning to the dock, while high gunwales give the boat a safe, spray-free ride for all on board. Control the 1,450-pound ballast system and just about everything else through MaliView, the boat’s onboard command screen at the helm. Touch a button to flood the lounge with LED lighting after dark, for example, or adjust the volume on the 247’s impeccable sound system and enjoy a party on the water; it might just be more comfortable than your house.
The Malibu Wakesetter 247 LSV is the best water ski boat for you if: You want a wake-capable party boat that blends luxury amenities with high-level performance.
