Ski Boat Review
Malibu’s 23 vRide offers proven performance, a solid set of standard features and plenty of room for your entire family or crew — all for one of the best values in wakeboarding. With a résumé that includes “official tow boat” and “pro boat of choice,” the 23 vRide creates classic wakes that have stood the test of time. While you’ll miss out on many of Malibu’s state-of-the-art features, the 23 vRide comes standard with some of the same standout features as Malibu’s flagship Wakesetter series, including the Illusion G3 tower with spinning board racks, Precision Pro speed control and 400 pounds of hard-tank ballast. At 23 feet, the 23 vRide is actually tied for Malibu’s second-largest boat, so while the price tag is relatively low, you still get plenty of boat.
The Malibu 23 vRide is the best ski boat for you if: You’re willing to sacrifice the latest and greatest boat technology for proven performance and a solid set of standard features at a great value.
