Built with the same quality materials (minus a few bells and whistles) as other premium Malibu wakeboard boats like the Wakesetter VLX and 247 LSV, the Malibu 23 vRide delivers an all-purpose water-sports pull for less than $60,000. Besides the new exterior vinyl graphics that give the wake boat a sporty, progressive image, standard features like the Precision Pro Speed Control, Illusion G3 tower with Titan slide-off spinner combo racks, a subfloor 400-pound ballast system and a tandem-axle trailer ensure the 23 vRide can fulfill every aspect of the wakeboarding lifestyle without adding a single option. There's something that makes us feel good every time we step foot into a Malibu boat. It's not just that we literally feel good when we stretch out on the thick, soft vinyl of the oversize observer's seat, the expansive wraparound lounge or the swiveling captain's chair. It's that Malibu Boats has focused on every detail to make comfort and functionality a top priority.
