2017 Malibu Wakesetter 25 LSV Boat Review


The Malibu Wakesetter 25 LSV is solidly built and has all the features of a modern luxury wakeboat. Seating for 19 people and huge ballast numbers mean the 25 LSV has meaty wakes, which is impossible to deny.

Surf whichever side you choose when you select with the Surf Band, a wearable remote control that handles not only the surf side but also the Power Wedge and the speed within a few miles per hour. The Power Wedge is an important component because it can take the wake from a long and mellow ramp to a steep and tall kick, or anywhere in between. The Power Wedge also boosts the boat on takeoff to make for faster hole shots with far less bow rise than would otherwise be possible with this huge hull.

Control all this wake-shaping tech from your Surf Band or from the helm at the 12-inch center touchscreen and 7-inch auxiliary screen. Or, if you’re feeling analog, take control with the rotary dial and hot keys.

The interior is immaculate with luxury touches that make this boat as fun to be in as it is to be behind. An aft bench-style seat easily converts into a rear-facing seat, flip-down armrests make bow passengers more comfortable, flip-up seat backs give everyone a view of the action, LED lighting sets the mood, and there’s a speaker just about everywhere you look. Above, the tower makes for a solid tow point with state-of-the-art honeycomb interior construction. The tower has Fold Assist so you can lower it by yourself, and simple locks will never leave you frustrated.
