What's up guys,

Well, we picked up our 07' VLX a week ago, and two days later headed to lake powell for a week. It couldn't have gotten much better than that. I believe we had the first 07' VLX in California, or that's what the dealer told us. The boat is absolutly amazing, more so then we could have imagined. The 07' is the 25 Anniversary Silver edition, so it has some extra "bling" in spots around the boat. The dash was redone, and looks awesome. We went with the Illusion X tower, and now I am looking into speakers any lights, any suggestions? The boat is Black and White, and I will post pics tomorrow when I get home.

So for any of you looking into getting a VLX, don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed.

Here are some pics for you impatient people! I'm too lazy to save and resize so you'll have to do a little work on your own and click on the link.

Here is the RLXI, VTX, and 247RX. The anniversary edition Response is on the previous page. I guess you'll have to wait to see some of the new Wakesetters.

Auto - No need to wait man...order that Bad Boy now! I saw some 07's at the shop this week and they look nice. It's the small stuff that excites you...like no more mesh on the back hatches but rather a plastic storage attached to the door. I'm not too crazy about the 2 piece hatch though, but that's just me.

Here are some pics of my 07' vlx, I will take some interior pics today and post them, and find the pictures from the factory as well.
The last picture is from our lake powell trip last week, I will post some more pics of the boat out there.

Beautiful! Great color choices.

Does the Malibu speed control work well?

Lol, ya its a pretty tight fit. Actually we dont have the wedge yet because they came out with a new stainless steel edition for 07. No this is not a limited edition boat, it is the silver 25 year anniversary boat. More pics later....

Nice boat. Why did they switch to a 2 piece rear deck? The 3 piece is much more functional.
Old    SD (sdkid21)      Join Date: Aug 2005       08-14-2006, 6:48 PM Reply   
Not entirely sure. However, with the hydraulic assists on the rear deck its not bad at all lifting them up, and its nice and open to get at the huge storage areas.
