Ski Boat Review
One of Malibu’s longtime flagship wakeboarding machines, the Wakesetter 21 VLX continues to be a dominant force by delivering ideal wakes for every move imaginable. For 2013, the boat has become even more of a wakebuilding giant with the addition of Surf Gate – electronically controlled plates on each side of the boat’s stern. The system, which is easily accessed from the boat’s helmbased command center (MaliView), redistributes water flow to create the perfect wakesurfing swell. Even better, you can weight the boat evenly and surf each side of the boat without redistributing ballast, for regular or goofy-foot riding. The Surf Gate is easily controlled through MaliView, the boat’s helm-based command center. Another tech-savvy innovation is the new Mobile Device Gateway, which allows you to instantly link your smartphone to stream music and transfer riders’ settings. With classic Malibu styling, quality and reliability, this is the best VLX yet.
The Malibu Wakesetter 21 VLX is the best ski boat for you if: You want a traditional Malibu look that’s plush and stylish without sacrificing a legendary wake.
