2018 Malibu Boats 21 VLX
If you’re considering your first Malibu or didn’t know how accessible a new Wakesetter could be, meet the new 21 VLX. We designed it as an affordable, complete family watersports package with seating for up to 13. The 21 VLX is a no-compromise machine fully equipped for water-skiing, wakeboarding, surfing or just a day of fun on the water. You get the complete Integrated Surf Platform, including the Power Wedge II Hydrofoil and the Surf Gate. We even include a Malibu trailer, a bimini top and a cover in the purchase price. Competitors can’t match its performance, its Malibu fit and finish, or its value.
Features may include:
SPORT SPECIFIC HULL – DIAMOND OR WAKE PLUS HULL
The Diamond Hull was created by reversing the chines, to create more lift at ski speeds. This design causes the rear of the hull to lift out of the water more, creating a flatter, softer ski wake. The Wake Plus Hull which allows the boat to sit deeper in the water at slower speeds for more water displacement.
MALIBU COMMAND CENTER
The Command Center is the smartest combination of digital interfaces and traditional controls in the industry. The bright, high-resolution 12-inch MaliView touchscreen gives you finger-tap control of the ballast, Power Wedge II and Surf Gate. Also includes the Sport Dash analog control dial for Surf Gate, Power Wedge II, stereo and speed.
CONTOURED SEATING FOR UP TO 13 PEOPLE
We designed the 21 VLX as an affordable, complete family watersports package with seating for up to 13.
ENGINE OPTIONS – MONSOON 410 OR 450
Moving a loaded boat at steady watersports speeds with the Power Wedge II Hydrofoil deployed takes a lot of torque. That’s why Malibu exclusively uses 6.2-liter Monsoon V8 engines for its entire line that can generate up to 575 foot pounds of torque for select models.
INTEGRATED SURF PLATFORM (ISP)
Malibu’s exclusive ISP starts with Model-Specific Performance Hulls, Quad Hard Tank ballast, and Malibu's exclusive Power Wedge II and Surf Gate. Control it all with the touch of a finger using the Malibu Command Center and our exclusive Surf Band wrist remote.
The traditional bow 21 VLX crossover seats up to 13 and comes equipped with Integrated Surf Platform™, G3.5 tower with speakers and board racks, touchscreen Command Center, matching custom trailer, bimini top and canvas cover. Choose between the Diamond Multisport Hull or the Wake Plus Hull for wake and surf specialization.
