Jake Owen, the country-music artist behind such No 1 hits as “Beachin’ ” who has also has served as a face of the industrywide Grow Boating campaign, also is a fan of Malibu Boats.

The company recently headed to Nashville’s Centerhill Lake to surprise Owen with his new fully loaded 2015 Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV, built exactly to his specifications.

The 23 LSV was spec’d out down to the detail just for Owen, including the company’s new purple metal-flake gelcoat.

“This boat is unbelievable!” Owen said. “You guys continually outdo yourselves year after year. Look at the fine details of the craft. I’m just amazed. I cannot wait to get to the Malibu factory and give everyone there a high-five. Thank you!”

Afterward, the crew took Owen wakesurfing for hours and let him pretty much own Centerhill Lake.
