Ski Boat Review
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Malibu’s legendary boatbuilding, the anniversary package is available on the Response TXi, the Wakesetter 23 LSV and one of the best-selling, most versatile boats in the Malibu line, the Wakesetter 20 VTX. The 30th anniversary is called the pearl anniversary, so Malibu created a custom pearl metal flake that adorns the side of the 20 VTX, and custom badging on the swim platform, carpet and much more make this Malibu a special addition to any fleet. The 20 VTX is one of the most versatile boats in Malibu’s lineup, with a progressive dash that looks sharp and houses easy-to-use gauges. When weighted for wakeboarding with 1,250 pounds of hard-tank ballast, the wakes have that classic Malibu shape with long ramps and smooth transitions. For one of the best ever V-drive slalom pulls, opt for the Cut Diamond hull and removable center pylon. And with the addition of the new Surf Gate, which allows effortless on-the-fly surfing on either side of the boat, the 20 VTX is arguably the best multisport inboard available.
The 30th-Anniversary Malibu Wakesetter 20 VTX is the ski boat for you if: You want a boat that’s not only a versatile, great-looking all-around water-sports machine, but also a piece of Malibu’s history and future with plenty of custom 30th anniversary features.
