Next-Best of Both Worlds
Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV
The Malibu Wakesetter VLX isn’t the biggest boat in Malibu’s line — the massive, all-new Malibu Wakesetter 247 LSV earns that distinction — but it boasts the better wake. After all, it has towed Wakestock, the world’s biggest wakeboarding and music festival, for years, and it’s the boat of choice for Phillip Soven and Dallas Friday, two of the sport’s most decorated riders. The Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV combines the second-best of both worlds. Preferred by Malibu team riders Chad Sharpe and Brian Grubb, the Wakesetter 23 LSV’s wake is second only to that of the Wakesetter VLX, and its 23-foot length is as large as every model except the Wakestter 247 LSV. There’s nothing next-best about its list of features, however. In fact, the 23 LSV sports the same stellar standards as both the VLX and the 247 LSV, including the all-new Malibu Touch Command, hard-tank ballast system and easy-to-fold Illusion G3 tower with spinning board racks.
