2018 Malibu Boats 22 VLX
We designed the 22 VLX to give you a choice of watersport possibilities. Choose a sport-specific hull: Diamond Hull for multisport wakes, or Wake Plus Hull for the absolute best wakes and waves. Either way, there’s room for up to 14. The 22 VLX is an eye-catcher on the water and a great handler, with room and fun for the whole family.
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 category. 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.
G-FORCE WET SOUNDS TOWER SPEAKERS
Our all-new onboard entertainment system by Wet Sounds has been digitally tuned to each of our models to maximize sound quality and clarity. Using the Command Center you can control the volume for each zone to put the sound right where you want it.
Our patented FibECS chassis and eight-layer lamination process provides maximum durability and ensures a smooth, solid ride on the water.
POWER-ADJUSTABLE HELM SEAT
We took our ridiculously comfortable helm seat and added motorized lift so you can get the height dialed in just right for you.
ENGINE OPTIONS - 410, 450 OR 575
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 Malibu 22 VLX multisport towboat features soft grip flooring, hand-sewn wraparound vinyl seating, Zero Off GPS and premium Wet Sounds stereo with MultiZone Audio Control. Optional upgrades include a heated driver’s seat, rear-facing WakeView seating and I.S.P.™ with Power Wedge II™, Surf Gate™ and Surf Band™ for the ultimate wake and wave customization.
