Ski Boat Review
As one of Malibu Boat’s best selling inboards, the Malibu Wakesetter 21 VLX continues to earn praise for its mind-blowing wake performance. It all starts with a world-class hull design that carves out massive wakes with excellent shape. You don’t have to mess around with moving passengers or tweaking wake-shaping devices because the wake is pretty much always clean and perfect. One of our favorite features year after year, the Illusion G3 tower not only has a bold look with its forward-sweeping design, but it’s also supremely functional. The tower folds down easily, offers convenient spots to hang speakers out of the way and features standard spinning combo-fork board racks. Inside this legendary traditional bow design, comfort is at a premium, with well-padded upholstery in all of the seating options and a plethora of storage space for your crew’s gear.
The Malibu Wakesetter 21 VLX is the best ski boat for you if: You want pro-level wakes in a stylish, traditional-bow package from one of the most innovative companies in the industry.
