Malibu Boats has introduced the 2017 Wakesetter 23 LSV and 25 LSV, the newest versions of its largest traditional-bow models.
A traditional bow design combines classic styling with easy access to the lounge area in both LSV models. For 2017, Malibu added new amenities to both boats. New gel and flake color choices give customers more ways to personalize their boats.
In both LSV models, the driver can use the digital Command Center, with optional Sport Dash rotary dial, to tailor wakes and waves for any skill level. With Malibu’s Surf Band wrist remote, the rider can control the wave right from the surfboard.
The 23 LSV offers seating for up to 15. A choice of hulls in the 23 LSV, along with Malibu’s Integrated Surf Platform (ISP), allows customers to equip their boats based on personal watersports priorities. Customers can choose the Wake Plus hull for improved wakes and waves, combined with the ISP’s Power Wedge II hydrofoil and Surf Gate. Customers who want to enjoy slalom flats along with surf wakes and waves can select the Diamond hull.
25 LSV: Room for 19
The 25 LSV is Malibu’s longest boat, with seating for up to 19. It takes the features of the 23 LSV and adds more room and more ballast. A maximum of 4,850 lbs. of ballast help produce a wake before filling the ballast tanks and dropping the Power Wedge II hydrofoil, with no loss to handling.
New for 2017
New features in the LSV models for 2017 include SeaDek material for the Soft Grip flooring, transom pads and swimboard; a new audio system by Wet Sounds; a new transom remote; and onboard speakers that match the tower speaker design.
Malibu also introduced a new standard G3.5 tower for 2017. The new design features stainless-steel construction, a folding tower latch, LED lights and Wet Sounds speakers. The available G4 tower offers LED enhancements, and both towers also offer a new side-pull point for surfing.
Like all 2017 Malibu models, the 23 LSV and 25 LSV come backed by a 5-year warranty, including lifetime hull coverage, and are available now at all authorized Malibu dealers.
