Spacious Pickle-Fork Bow

Enjoy extra roomy and deep bow seating that’s comfortable for several adults. Plus, you can still enjoy all the amenities you love from the rest of the boat including cup holders, phone holders, fold-down armrests & customizable LED lighting.

Wake Plus™ Hull

This hull was designed specifically for wakesurfing and wakeboarding applications. It allows the boat to sit deeper in the water at slower speeds, creating more water displacement for perfect wakes and surf waves at speed.

Tower Options

Opt for the brand new Malibu G10+™ Tower (pictured here) that raises and lowers at the turn of a dial and includes overhead lighting to illuminate the lounge. Or, select the Malibu standard G5™ Tower that effortlessly stows gear, tows riders, and easily folds low.
