The Malibu Boats Story

In 1982, six California friends channeled their shared passion for waterskiing into designing and building a new wave of ski boats.

They named the company Malibu, for the coastal paradise where enjoying watersports is a way of life. Rejecting “good enough” as a substitute for state-of-the-art, Malibu began a dedication to innovation that continues today. That focus on innovation has made Malibu the undisputed worldwide towboat leader with a long roster of industry-firsts, including:

- The first Wakeboard Hull
- The Wedge Hydrofoil followed by the Power Wedge II
- Surf Gate™, which revolutionized watersports by generating an endless, controllable surf wave

No competitor can match the new boats, innovations and features that Malibu has introduced since 2010, and we continue to advance the state of the art in watersports boats.

Malibu built a loyal following from seasoned enthusiasts, accomplished pros and families seeking all-out fun on the water. And they’ve made us the world’s largest manufacturer of watersports wake, ski and surf boats. Today, Malibu builds one out of every two towboats worldwide.

Our 700+ employees build Malibu and Axis Wake Research boats in three manufacturing facilities in Merced, California; Loudon, Tennessee; and New South Wales, Australia.

Surf Gate

Surf Gate

With the other components of Malibu’s Integrated Surf Platform, Surf Gate creates the most dynamic playground for wake surfing possible. Period. Malibu’s ISP allows hundreds of customization options. No competitor comes close to offering that adjustability range.

Power Wedge III

Power Wedge III

The Power Wedge III makes your wakes and waves bigger by pulling down the back of the boat and saves gas by automatically getting you on plane faster. It now has five more degrees of lift for more usable positions and an improved exhaust pipe so it’s more effective and it looks better than ever. Our innovations are always evolving.

Quad Hard-Tank Ballast

Up to 5,000 lbs. across the wake setter line, our model specific quad hard tank ballast offers you the ability to set the size and shape of your ideal wake with incredible ease.
