Malibu Boats, the global leader in state-of-the-art watersports towboats, will showcase the all-new 2013 Wakesetter 24 MXZ at Surf Expo in Orlando, Fla. September 6-8. The 24 MXZ joins the 22 MXZ, which was introduced last year at Surf Expo and has now become the fastest-selling new boat launch in Malibu’s history.
“The addition of the 24 MXZ to our wildly successful MXZ family will maximize the boating experience in the large boat, pickle-fork market,” said Scott Davenport, director of sales at Malibu. “This boat is for a big crew that attacks every activity imaginable. And, thanks to Surf Gate, we’ve significantly reduced the time it takes to switch between these activities, letting our customers focus on watersports versus boat setup.”
New features include flip-up Wakeview seating, a dual-purpose built-in cooler with oversized drop-in cooler and expanded storage throughout the boat at convenient access points. The 24 MXZ is outfitted with Malibu’s patented Surf Gate technology and a plug-and-play ballast as well as a Mobile Device Gateway, utilizing Bluetooth technology. Additionally, customers can personalize their 24 MXZ with gel and metallic gel combinations, and even a matching G3 tower.
“We have designed the 24 MXZ for big lakes and variable water conditions, or any situations where you have a large group of your closest friends and family,” said Dan Gasper, Malibu’s director of product design. “The elevated Wakeview seating provides an excellent vantage point to watch wakeboarding and wakesurfing.”
The Wakesetter 24 MXZ will make its debut at Surf Expo in Orlando, Fla., at booth #307.
