2006 Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV
The Wakesetter 23 LSV is the personal boat of World Champion Darin Shapiro and the boat he uses for this personal Riding School. If it's good enough for a world champion, chances are your family will be equally pleased. Large, powerful, plush, the Wakesetter 23 LSV packs in more ballast and features than any other boat in its class. The Wakesetter 23 SLV offers riders and their gear a whopping 30 cubic feet of rear locking storage. The two 200 lb ballast tanks that are used to invade this space are located beneath the floor and out of the way.

weight in stern does not include wedge. wedge pretty much just controls the lip anyway. wedge up=mellow wedge down=more poppy. I love my malibu wake.
this is my second boat and I've tested plenty of mastercrafts and a couple nautiques. adjustibility is key and my 23lsv does it all. houseboat at shasta with 14 people on my boat, not a problem. the '08 23lsv's going to be even better, can't wait. bottom line, before you get sucked into brand names like mastercraft make sure you test drive.

The boat is awesome and the wake is awesome. Two biggies though, is that the battery is right where the storage is behind the passenger seat= in the way and not as much storage. Another is putting the passenger seat in, it takes about 2 minutes. The only other bad thing is that the windshield is way too close to your head when you are in the passenger seat. Other than that this boat is just as good as Nautiques. One more thing is that the plush carpet stays wet in the back for a while.

This is my inital review since I've only had the boat a week but have 20 hrs on it. I love it. Great for wakesurfing and wakeboarding. Love the design, features, performance (8.1), power wedge, interior, illusion x tower . I wish the racks would swivel into the boat, but other than that I would not trade for any other boat on the market.
Dont get me wrong, its a cool boat, just not the boat for me, its wake was very rampy; so rampy that it was flat. I'd Rather Get a nautique, or, if i could afford it a mastercraft. its a very nice boat when ur not wakeboarding, but the whole point is to wakeboard behind it, if ur looking for interior, buy a yaght, but if you want versatility, save up ur money a little longer, and buy a mastercraft [my friend has one, ill never ride behind anything besides an XSTAR again]
Have had this boat for two months and loving it so far. No problems to date, great handling, plenty of power, super roomy, plush and well-designed interior. Tried all the competition and this was the perfect one for me. Everyone who has been out on it has commented that it is the nicest boat they have been on.

Amazing boat to drive in all conditions. The Cruise Control is a marriage saver. Plenty or room for all your friends & family. The more the merrier when wakesurfing a huge curling, clean wake. In 30 years of baoting it's the best boat I've seen.
Boat is awesome.... Incredible wakeboard wake with MLS & Power Wedge. Wakesurfing is better with single rear, full middle, full bow ballast ans 1/2 wedge. Boat at plane is not bad for skiing either... This boat ROCKS.....

Reviewer: omaha hi low
This boats rocks, it throws the hugest wake. No mater what type of rider you are this boat has it all for you. The room is like a 3 bedroom house. Plus malibu lets you customize it if you order it. Paint trim the works. Expensive but worth every penny.

The 23 LSV is my personal favorite boat on the water right now. Being an owner I can truly say this is one of the sickest boats on the market. If you want to hit the big tricks and really show other riders whats up this is the ride for you
