Malibu is debuting two new models for 2017, including this 22 MXZ Wakesetter.

Malibu Boats introduced the 22 MXZ and 24 MXZ Wakesetters for 2017, with completely new hulls combined with Malibu’s integrated surf platform.

There is seating for 15 in the 22 MXZ and for as many as 18 in the 24 MXZ. To maximize time on the water, Malibu increased the fuel capacity by 10 percent in the 24 MXZ.

"When we introduced the 22 MXZ in the 2012 model year and the 24 MXZ shortly after that, the MXZ series took the market by storm. Now the new 22 MXZ and 24 MXZ have the innovations and performance characteristics that Malibu has developed over the last four years, making them even more versatile, better-performing and feature-laden," Malibu CEO Jack Springer said in a statement.

"The new 22 MXZ and 24 MXZ are at the top of the best wakeboarding and wakesurfing boats on the market today, and with Malibu's iconic performance and handling, truly maximize your entire boating experience,” Springer said.
