Wakeboard Boat Review

One of the most hallowed hulls in the inboard market, the Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV has a reputation that precedes it. It's great for buyers seeking a near-perfect wake, a large hull and an overall look that's as good as anything on the water.

The 23 LSV’s traditional bow turns heads on the water, which is a huge part of the reason this hull has sold in such incredible volume. It doesn’t sacrifice anything on performance either, so you’re getting the best of both worlds. The redesigned dash was introduced in 2013, and it’s still just as stunning now. There’s a massive center touchscreen that’s also in a Mercedes, and a 7-inch auxiliary screen is offset to the right and lets you truly immerse yourself in the driving experience by adjusting settings only available on a luxury-class boat. If you want to stay analog, the multifunction rotary switch lets you adjust your settings without going into the touchscreen. The wakeboard wake is clean and big on the 23 LSV, and Surf Gate lets you make a wave on either side without moving weight around when you want to switch sides. The Power Wedge adjusts the boat’s running attitude to mellow or steepen the wake, and the new Surf Band lets the surfer control speed, side and the Wedge while riding.
