Malibu Boats introduced the new 2017 Response TXi, the second generation of the water-ski boat.
Joining the line is the first TXi Malibu Open Edition, named for the company’s premier ski tournament and equipped with exclusive features.
“I am so excited about the future of this new hull and design,” Malibu world record holder Regina Jacquess said in a statement.
“The wakes are nonexistent, and because they are so flat they do not impede the skier in trying to gain direction across the course,” she said, detailing her experience behind the new TXi. “The lack of wake allowed me to gain angle and width to get cross course at 41 off without interruption or loss of leverage, and that was key to my ability to set a new world record.”
The 2017 Malibu TXi is available in the closed-bow design or the open-bow model.
