As we continue to delve into the many features of our new Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV, we continue to discover all that this amazing vessel has to offer. The photo gallery and video below give you a few more looks. The video especially utilizes a lot of unique angles to show the boat in a way that maybe you haven't seen before.
First off, I have to recommend getting the midmight blue involved in your color scheme if you end up buying a Malibu. This is definitely the sharpest looking Official Boat of WakeWorld yet and I'm giving that color a lot of the credit. The colored tower adds quite a bit as well.
The photos concentrate on the interior and, as you can see, there is plenty of it. I do not anticipate ever saying, "Just wait on the dock, we don't have room for you." The two pop-up seat backs offer a great way to utilize space by allowing riders to sit normally or turn and face the rider. The floor is covered with the increasingly popular DeckADence flooring that is easy on the feet, doesn't get hot and breathes so that mildew isn't a problem. Between that and the drains on the floor, I think people can finally agree on the perfect flooring solution.
Another nice touch is the liberal use of stainless grab handles throughout the front and rear seating areas. That makes all your passengers, especially those in the bow, feel secure. Bow riders also get a fold-down armrest if they're sitting in the forward position and taking advantage of the backrest.
What you would already expect on a Malibu is plenty of storage, drink holders and speakers, so there is no diappointment there. The adjustable swivel driver's seat sits in front of a dashboard full of features. The stereo is on the left, a button-controlled screen is in the middle and a touchscreen is on the right. Everything is within reach with a few clicks. Even starting and stopping the engine is done with a touch of the screen (although there is a manually key override). Built-in Bluetooth is an especially appreciated feature.
PTMEdge provides both the rearview mirror and the board racks. The mirror provides a view of the rider on both sides of the wake and the racks provide the simplest clamping-style rack available. Next to those racks are four 6x9 Wet Sounds horned speakers putting out plenty of sound to your rider. Covering it all is the unique bimini that folds in half so that it can go down when the tower is folded down. If that's not enough to get your tower low enough to get the boat into the garage, you can remove the bimini altogether for a little more clearance. I get this boat into an eight-foot garage with plenty of clearance.
Enjoy the views below. WakeWorld will continue to explore the Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV and continue to bring you the results of what we find. Stay tuned...
