The T23 is Axis’ biggest traditional bow boat, and it does an incredible job of blending that line with the aggressive looks the brand is known for. Built on the Wake Plus hull, which is designed to push more water to help create the symmetrical and sizable wakes and waves that are Axis’ signature, the T23 is set up to provide fun for riders of all ability levels.
With just a driver, passenger, factory ballast (with optional plug-and-play upgrade) and the new Power Wedge III, the T23 puts up a wake or wave that advanced riders will love. Add a few more friends to the boat and the wake only continues to improve. This is a testament to the combination of hull design and tech available on the T23. By adjusting the Power Wedge III, you can change the characteristics of the wake to fit your style and needs. For example, if you want the wave to be steeper, just bump the wedge into a steeper position. The other advantage of the new Power Wedge III is lift mode, which positions the foil in a way that makes it easier for the T23 to get onto plane while loaded with ballast. Once on plane it automatically deploys to the predetermined position chosen by the driver.
The T23 also features Surf Gate, the revolutionary wakesurfing technology from Axis’ mothership, Malibu. These hydraulic gates at each side of the transom can be deployed with the push of a button, allowing the boat to go from wakeboarding to wakesurfing and back without having to move weight around. Combined with the Surf Band remote system worn on the rider’s wrist, Surf Gate can be controlled on the fly while riding. It allows for transfers from a port wave to a starboard wave (or vice versa) with ease. Soft touch buttons at the dash make controlling many of the boat’s functions simple and easy, while a small digital display above the steering wheel shows wedge position and speed-control data.
With room for 16, the T23 can hold all your family and friends, plus tons of gear thanks to ample deep storage and racks integrated into the tower. Simply put, the T23 is going to provide you with a lot of fun, whether you’re driving, watching, riding or just hanging out.
