Good work! Got my First New Boat last season... Makes for one hell of a summer. Can't wait to see that bad boy on the water....

jeff_mn 12-06-2012 6:44 AM

beautiful

SimonSez 12-06-2012 6:48 AM

Stellar boat. Nothing beats the sleek look of blinged-up Wakesetter trundling along through the water...one of the best looking towers out there too IMO!

scotthons 12-06-2012 9:12 AM

Never thought I would like green on a boat, but that is looking good! Congrats on the purchase!

bcrider 12-06-2012 9:12 AM

Sweet boat man! I've seen a few others that have painted the speakers on the tower to match and it really makes the boat look a lot better.

thescott 12-06-2012 9:32 AM

Holy hell that's a nice looking boat! Congrats man!

tyler97217 12-06-2012 10:31 AM

Very nice. Congratulations!

ixfe 12-06-2012 12:23 PM

Welcome to the VLX family... nice boat, and a congrats on making the plunge!

Also, I am a big fan of the white G3 tower... really sets the boat off.

12-06-2012 12:27 PM

Congrats on the boat...Michigan State fan?

Dont forget to join Malibucrew forum if you havent already, one of the best boat forums out there imo.

cwb4me 12-07-2012 4:36 AM

Very sharp boat!!! Love the color combo! Enjoy your new fun machine.

jonblarc7 12-07-2012 7:00 AM

Very nice love it

I bought my vlx from gull lake in August and remember seeing this boat there. Trevor was great to deal with. Make sure to come out in may for a malibu owners gathering hosted by gull lake marina

Kingsriver 12-08-2012 9:09 AM

Great Boat. Too bad you have to wait so long to use it. Enjoy your long winter wiating to go on your first date with miss Malibu

bruizza 12-08-2012 11:48 AM

Very Nice!

nitrousbird 12-08-2012 2:32 PM

Are you able to swap out trailers? A white trailer with some nicer rims would really step up the look of your setup.

joeshmoe 12-08-2012 5:08 PM

why no surfgate?

It still blows my mind people actually care what trailers look like. Its just a way to get the boat to and from the lake, right? Although the boat/trailer manufacturers are happy to charge the crap out of customers for those fancy setups...

As someone who has a year old boat, I would opt against a white trailer. They show rust stains quickly. I thought it was just mine, but I noticed a local who has a 2011 SAN 210 with the same issues on his trailer.

People nit picking the trailer, surfgate, etc. It was a left over '12 that he got a good deal on, congrats. The wake crowd had gotten way too critical in my opinion.

The majority of the time a boat is seen (unless it is on a lift) is when it is on a trailer. By your theory, who cares what the boat looks like, it is just a way to get on the water.

Yea, that totally correlates to my "theory."

Go ahead and waste money on an optioned out white trailer that will show rust in a few months.

I could care less what my boat looks like on my trailer in the garage, or going down the road on the way to the lake. The primary use case of a boat is on the water, right? :rolleyes:

bftskir 12-09-2012 2:59 PM

Looks just fine on a black trailer

completely agreed. the basic boatmate is more than enough for me. its about what sits on the trailer not what the trailer looks like itself.

and if you only want to get on the water you should just buy a inflatable raft at walmart

Congratulations on your new VLX! You are going to love the wake on that boat... that green and white looks really nice.... enjoy your new ride! and I think the black trailer looks great.

What colors did you end up with? Trevor is the man. Just a straight shooter . They are gonna absolutely kill it with the Malibu line.
