Journalists have tried to write it. Other companies have tried to recreate it. Competitors have tried to downplay it. The culture of Malibu Boats is a unique and wonderful thing. It is an environment of family that lends itself to extreme amounts of fun and innovation. It's who we are.
Build the Best Boat Possible
Enjoy the workplace. Give your owners the best value. Since Malibu's inception in 1982, the mission has been this simple. From humble beginnings where Malibu built 100 custom ski boats in a small shop, to their standing as the world's number one manufacturer of water sports boats, Malibu has become an exemplary American boat company
Wakeboarding Magazine says "Any rider who knows what's up will agree the VLX is one of the finest wake boats ever built." World Champions Dallas Friday and Phillip Soven clearly know what's up, as this is their chosen boat. Whether you are a pro or a beginner, you will relish the extraordinary VLX interior, with its multi-tone, multi-textured customizable design, three densities of foam comfort, wrapped in supple G&T Duraguard¿ Marine Vinyl and secured with tough SolarFix® PTFE Thread sewn in an indispensable French stitch. Then, prepare for your next run on the specially-tooled transom seat, set at the perfect height to put on your board. The VLX makes you feel like a pro, even if you're not.
WAKESETTER 22 MXZ
Some people just prefer to be front and center. That's why we built the new Wakesetter 22 MXZ with a pushed-back helm that creates ample bow room. With all the performance advantages of a Malibu Wakesetter already in place, this open bow model will appeal to hard core boarders and lounge lizards alike. In fact, the helm and lounge mimic other Wakesetter interiors with the intricate, plush upholstery you have come to expect from Malibu, plus stainless steel accents and a precisely placed sound system. This boat offers social spaces everywhere, including the transom seating, with easy access to the swim step and ice chests. The eye-catching exterior will elicit covetous stares, but the exceptional performance will bring smiles of satisfaction.
The Axis boats are built like no other price point boats. They are constructed using a select group of radical boat builders who constantly question the norm. They look past tradition and old habits for the most efficient, durable way to build a boat.
To create the A22 they mix in the wants and needs of the core riding lifestyle. For the A20, they take those same standards along with the size restrictions of certain lakes and most garages.
These guys work in an independent environment where they are able to share ideas and be heard on any issue. This kind of freedom and trust produces unique production practices and untouched ingenuity. With the Axis Wake Research Team, your boat is as personal to them as it is to you.
The Axis 20. Keith Lyman says, "The wake is all around world class! . . . great for ridin' big or for just poppy wake to wake riding." At the same time, this boat produces a nice flat table for slalom skiing. Translation: this boat is made for multi-discipline fun and at a mere 20 feet long, it's easily towed and stowed. Features shared with the A22 include Skybox seating, Available Plug N Play ballast, colored LED under-seat illumination, the available ChillAX walk-through seat and more. The A20 has the capacity to hold 11 people and the wakes to satisfy the most dedicated riders. So yes, even though the recreational skier would be stoked on this wake, the A20 has been designed for the wake sports.
The Axis 22 doesn't try to be everything to everybody, like some so-called crossover boats. Axis Wake Research loyalty lies with riders, and we make no apology for that. We built it for riders who demand more¿more wake, more space, more style¿for less money. Riders in search of big, perfectly sculpted wakes for wakeboarding, wakesurfing and wakeskating. In other words, you.
