Just in, this Malibu 21 VLX is absolutely loaded with options, was just fully serviced, and has brand new tower speakers.
Malibu offers incredible "rattle-free" construction and the all-vinyl dash offers a refined automotive look. Even the little things matter, like a rubber coating on the swim platform that doesn't stick to boards, and sunken cockpit rails that you don't bump into. But just when we thought the VLX couldn't get any better, it did.
After our test run behind this 2005 model, we can confidently say the Wakesetter VLX is one of the top boats for wakeboarding. The wakes are at the legitimate pro level, which is why star riders like Chad Sharpe and Dallas Friday train with a VLX. The long, smooth transition is easy to edge hard at and complete all of your toughest moves. Big double-ups have hefty meat that the VLX blasts through. We were able to generate them no problem because the VLX makes perfectly sharp turns for a V-drive. As the boat tracked on a straight line, we didn't really feel the rider. Even with our full test load, the Hammerhead 383 was up to speed in no time. After such a stellar test run, we can't wait for our next day with the VLX.
• For 2005, the pro-worthy VLX is built on Malibu's V25 Wake hull for enhanced wake size and performance.
• The new Indmar Hammerhead 400 hp engine's performance is nothing short of spectacular.
• Storage space is remarkable, especially in the trunk with the rear tanks of the ballast system below the floor.
• New in-dash Ballast Monitoring System assesses status of four tanks, including optional bow ballast for up to 1,250 pounds.
