Malibu Boats has announced the release of its new flagship—the Malibu M240.
Built for the family, the Malibu M240 accommodates passengers in a wraparound lounge with leather-like vinyl. The new 24-footer’s innovations start at the bow, with a new design for enhanced passenger comfort which includes a flip-up seat back that doubles as a wind block as well as additional forward seating.
The M-line hull boasts purpose-built extra-tall freeboard for on-water handling, even in rough water, and extra-deep gunwale storage. The bow also includes spray-free cell phone recesses and chargers, cup holders, balanced speakers, and a boarding ladder.
Powering the M240 is the new Malibu Monsoon LT4 V8 direct injection engine, featuring 6.2 liters of displacement, 607 horsepower and 605 ft.-lbs. of torque. The Malibu Monsoon LT4 is the only supercharged inboard engine currently on the market to meet CARB’s 4-star emissions rating.
Technology highlights on the M240 include the new Malibu Command Center, reimagined in a layout offering ergonomic controls. For even more control, the M240 boasts forward and rear-facing cameras to give the captain full situational awareness.
The M240’s wake starts with its M-line Hull, which the company says delivers the foundation of ideal wakes. The next step is the M240’s exclusive, storage-freeing High-Flow Malibu Launch System 6 (MLS6) ballast, which fills six tanks with up to 3,200 pounds of sub-floor ballast in less than three minutes.
