Ski Boat Review
One of Malibu’s most adept crossover boats, the Wakesetter 20 VTX is small enough for easy trailering and storage, but big enough to still throw impressive wakes with its 1,250 pounds of hard-tank ballast. We recommend opting for the Cut Diamond hull for the ideal marriage of bigger, rampier wakes at wakeboard speeds and smaller, softer wakes at slalom speeds. The new look of the 20 VTX’s interior and, especially, the dash is a huge leap forward for Malibu. The lounge has better-than-its-class storage and seating for 11 people, and the all-new Surf Gate completes this excellent multisport boat by allowing wakesurfers to switch between frontside and backside riding on the fly.
The Malibu Wakesetter 20 VTX is the best ski boat for you if: You want a great-performing hull for multiple water sports and the manageability of a smaller boat, both on and off the water.
