-   -   Why is Moomba using Malibu Names? (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=80012)

It all started with the LSV which Malibu has used for years. Now the new boat is called XLV, which is dislexic for VLX. Not dissing their boats at all, I have always been a fan of stadium seating, and the new put your cooler here thing is an excellent idea. Just come up with some original names....................

Skier's Choice systematically has used the "V" designation for a long time to signify a V drive (logical). Supra SSV is the V-drive version of the SunSport. The Moomba Mobius V is the V-drive version of the Mobius. In the case of the XLV, you're talking about an <i>extra large</i> 24-foot V-drive boat. Get it? XLV? To me, it seems a tad ego-centric to assume that has to involve imitating Malibu. But then again, I'm not dyslexic either....

It makes sense to me! I am sure it gets extremely difficult to keep coming up with model designations that are not similiar to another companies designation. However, I don't think Skier's Choice was really worrying about that! I just think they had a new model and used its features to come up with the XLV. Nothing more on nothing less! The new XLV looks really sharp!
