About to buy a 04 malibu vlx wanted to know what people think about the boat and the wake. I heard it is the same boat as the new v rides. So any input would help

as far as i know the hull in the 04 is the same as the v-rides. however, in 05 they went with a new hull that throws a bigger wake. either way, a malibu is legit

My 04 VLX has been a great boat and the wake has always been fun. Its up for sale on Only Inboards if you are still looking (let me know). I didnt want to sell, but this housing crash thing is tearing up my finances!

500# each side in rear, 500# in ski locker, 400# in walkway and it is an awesome wake without the wedge!

Hey Guys,

I'm looking at a 05 Malibu VLX with no ballast, but just the wedge... I just getting into the sport of wakeboarding, just looking to cruse around.... What do you guys think of the wake? How much should an 05 VLS SunScape be selling for now and days anyways?

Kevin -

Wake is sick with ballast, and without ballast it cruises great!

Great boat. One of the top 2 I've owned. Full Ballast + Wedge (watch it, cause if its the 4 bolt, it will break) +lead - 200 in each trunk + 200 middle + 400 in the nose. Could go even more but that was always enough. GREAT BOAT!!

Sold mine for 40 with every option you can imagine (and then some) if you are shopping. (Extra props, extended warranty, and all.)

if you can spring for an 05, i thikn that is a better hull.

But if not, the 04 is a good boat

Billy - high speed chase through a no wake zone. Cop wasnt thrilled with me. Funny part is, I was throwing no wake and she was mad because she was stuck 5 boats behind me and I just didnt see her until the last minute.
