Malibu 21 vRide 2012

Wakeboard Boat Review

With a résumé that includes pulling both pro riders and pro events and a decidedly un-pro price tag, the Malibu 21 vRide offers proven performance at Malibu‘s best value. Malibu’s Ride Series boats once pulled world-class wakeboarding events like Wakestock, the World Wakeboard Championships and the Malibu Open. Today, these same boats offer riders tested wakes and performance in a price-point package. But this is no stripped-down shell of a boat. In fact, the 21 vRide comes with many of the same standard features as Malibu’s flagship Wakesetter series, including a hard-tank ballast system, Precision Pro speed control and Malibu’s Illusion G3 tower with spinning board racks. You won’t have the option of adding on some of Malibu’s latest standout features, like MaliView and Malibu Touch Command, but you won’t pay for them either.

The Malibu 21 vRide is the best wakeboard boat for you if: You want pro-proven wakes and performance and a solid set of standard features at Malibu’s best value.
