Ski Boat Review
At 24 feet, 7 inches in length and with a wide 102-inch beam, the Malibu Wakesetter 247 LSV throws out the biggest, meatiest wake in the Malibu Boats lineup. This high-end wakeboard boat has enough room for a whopping 16 people. With amenities like dual coolers totaling 120 quarts, under-seat storage, a cab-forward design and the standard Illusion G3 gas-assisted tower and Titan spinner racks, this beastly yet luxurious wakeboard boat will please even the most discerning rider.
Lack of space will never be an issue in the sprawling Malibu Wakesetter 247 LSV. Storage under all lounge seating and a large over-engine and above-transom tray ensures 16 people’s worth of gear can be neatly tucked away. Plus, with high-end stainless accents and the optional MaliView, this Malibu Wakesetter will feel like your posh home away from home.
This enormous wakeboard boat throws out enormous wakes. And just as can be expected from the Malibu Wakesetter lineup, advanced riders will get long ramps with perfect peaks and cushiony landing zones with the standard 1,100 pounds of ballast. Add on the Power Wedge to tweak your wake to your liking, and don’t forget about the stellar wakesurfing capabilities as well.
1. Illusion G3 Bimini: This optional, oversize sun shelter protects passengers from those harmful ultraviolet rays and looks great.
2. Powerhouse: The 6.2L 450 hp LS3 engine with 424 pounds of torque is now standard, and you’ll be amazed by its smooth, robust strength.
3. Titan spinner/slide-off combo board racks: This standard feature adds convenience and versatility for accessing your surf and wake equipment.
