Boom. Legit.

Oh and please STFU about the tubing. It's obviously a family based video. No one cares about how you hardcore 22 year olds would never tube behind it. You can't afford it, its not for you.

very nice!

polarbill 09-05-2012 8:47 AM

That boat is sick. I love it and want one.

09-05-2012 8:55 AM

Love the paint scheme! Great looking boat

bcrider 09-05-2012 9:03 AM

hmmmm Flake!!

factorykitted 09-05-2012 9:05 AM

was going buy it but the tube changed my mind

dhill 09-05-2012 9:06 AM

tube wake looks incredible :)

great video, would be a privilege to own one.

SS_Hooke102 09-05-2012 9:09 AM

Sorry, that flake just reminds me too much of a tournament fishing boat... the tube wasn't helping either! lol jk jk

SS_Hooke102 09-05-2012 9:09 AM

but seriously about the fishing boat comment...

What i really like about this boat is that it doesn't look overwhelming like the G23/5

jeff_mn 09-05-2012 10:07 AM

Super sharp looking boat. I wouldn't do the flake myself - but I love it for someone else.

beleza 09-05-2012 10:54 AM

I would get rid of about 75% of the flake and change the steering wheel... other than that the boat looks awesome all around. Man so many great boats on the market it's crazy.

Someone else called it the BassSetter MXZ. Video makes the surf wave look very washed out.

Gorgeous Boat. NICE

My guess is the washout you're referencing is the washout before he switches sides...hence, the surf gate probably already having been deployed and changed from regular to goofy. If he's not switching or about to switch, the surf wave is clean...as proven on this site numerous times.

I think most people in the market for this boat either won't notice that or if they do they will understand what is going on with the gates switching.

amazing looking boat! I'd leave the flake if it was mine....gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous.

The wave is not clean in any of the shots on the video. As a potential customer (yes I am in the market for a new boat for 2013 and my Daddy doesn't write the check), the video is not compelling enough to sell me that this boat puts out a clean wave. I just expect a marketing video to show me the finest points of the boat to get my interest's peaked. I'm not saying that it doesn't put out a good wave, I am just pointing out that it's not flattering. Look at the wakeboarding shots, that wake is nice and clean.

People act like this is the first wakeboarding boat to have metal flake.

Factory marketing isn't really targeting you. It's targeting the family that you saw on the boat. If you want to see how the wake performs for the hardcore Wakesurfer (as funny as that sounds) then you should demo the boat and load it up. I also am interested in the 24 MXZ. I don't expect to get a sense for the wake from that video though.

I want to see a 2013 24' Bonecrusher MXZ. With lots of weight in it.

Rear facing seats in a Malibu! Fold up Seat cushions with Shocks and a real cooler! Bout time. I like it.

ripr 09-05-2012 6:36 PM

Wow! I think it looks REALLY good!

kstateskier 09-05-2012 6:54 PM

I bet that was no fun to turn that beast on the private ski lake they shot that on. I've been freaked out driving loaded down 21 footers in some of those lakes, can only imagine turning a 24 footer!

09-05-2012 7:00 PM

Yeah we couldnt put a certain pro rider's *** in our private lake after its unveil bc it couldnt make the turn lol

Malibus definitely look awesome. Need to convince my beighbors to upgrade so I can ride behind it:)

This boat is sick! I saw the first one they made at the dealer meeting in August, its huge with tons of storage. The flip up seats and shocks on the seats are a really nice touch. The boat actually handles extremely well for being a 24 footer. It felt very similar to driving a 22mxz. From a driver standpoint it didnt feel sluggish or cumbersome at all...might have been the 555hp that helped make it feel nimble
