Malibu debuts two wakesurfing boats for 2018

Publish date:

Malibu Boats said it has two new wakesurfing models for 2018 — the 24 MXZ and the 22 MXZ.

Malibu said the 24 MXZ measures 24 feet, 5 inches, with an 8-foot, 6-inch beam, and it is rated to carry 18 passengers.

Malibu’s MaxBallast system uses L-shaped water tanks to create wakes and has touchscreen control at the helm’s digital command center and on a wristband the surfer can wear to change the height and shape of the wakes.

Additionally the driver can engage the Surf Gate, the Power Wedge II and the Zero Off Cruise Control and the stereo volume. This keeps at least one hand on the wheel at all times.

MultiZone control for the audio system keeps the music pumping and the walkthrough layout and wraparound interior with WakeView seating provide lounging options for passengers.

New for 2018, bow thrusters are available and the boat comes with a trailer custom-built by Malibu.
