My dad went through this in 04 with a lsv and a x30, but now the vlx is bigger, so it is a better compairison. Both great boats, lots of storage, lots of room, pro caliber wake. It all comes down to dealer service, which boat you out right like more. Go test drive them thats the best way to make up your mind.
what made my dad choose malibu over master craft. Extras, like bow ballast, wedge, turn down exaust, choice of towers, how the storage areas were accesessed.
