Malibu Boat's value-class 21-foot wake boat rests on the iconic hull of the original Malibu Wakesetter VLX, so you know the 21 Ride can perform. In fact, this boat's clean, consistent surf and wakeboard wakes are flat out awesome. The 21 Ride also has a surprising number of standard features — including speed control, ballast and Illusion G3 tower with a pair of spinning board racks — for its low price. At the helm, speed control, ballast and the Auto Wedge are all easily controlled with simple switches that you'll master in minutes. Everything you need to drive this boat and pull riders is right there in front of you and easy to monitor at a glance. Options abound, so you can take the 21 Ride from a utilitarian wake machine to a comprehensive luxury boat with tons of amenities. It will never have all the bells and whistles of a Wakesetter, but it certainly does the job in style.
