2014 Malibu Wakesetter 21 VLX Review

Wakeboard Boat Review

Malibu Boats‘ Wakesetter 21 VLX is, quite simply, one of the best hulls on the market. It’s Malibu’s second-bestselling boat because it surfs as well as it wakeboards, and it’s a traditional-bow mainstay in the company’s line. The VLX has an absolutely amazing wakeboard wake. You don’t have to mess around with moving passengers and tweaking wake-shaping devices because the wake is pretty much always clean and perfect. This is the training tool that helped lift Dallas Friday and Phil Soven to champion status, so you know these wakes deliver at pro levels. One of our favorite features year after year, the Illusion G3 tower not only looks great, with its forward-sweeping design, but it’s also supremely functional. The Illusion G3 tower folds down easily, offers convenient spots to hang speakers out of the way and features standard spinning combo-fork board racks. It always feels solid and never rattles around no matter how many double-ups you plow through. The Malibu Wakesetter 21 VLX is the best wakeboard boat for you if: You want legendary wakes in a stylish, traditional-bow package from one of the best companies in the industry.
