2014 Malibu Wakesetter 24 MXZ Review

Wakeboard Boat Review

The second biggest boat in the Malibu Boats lineup, the huge, stylish Wakesetter 24 MXZ is just begging to be surfed. The huge hull sinks deep into the water, creating an absolutely massive wave. Add Surf Gate, and it's even better. Surf Gate allows you to switch your surf wave from side to side instantly — all while keeping your boat weighted evenly. It's a huge plus for surfers because it allows you to transfer from side to side while you're riding, and you can surf your opposite side without draining and filling ballast. Besides creating massive surf swells, the 24 MXZ's sprawling size is a social asset. At more than 24 feet, this boat is perfect for loading up tons of friends, riding all day then socializing when the sun goes down. The lounge has deep, ergonomic bench seats that combine with the wide-nose bow to create room for a line-leading 18 people. The wide nose not only makes for a progressive look, but it also fits tons of people in complete comfort. Whether you're plowing through rough water or just taking a nap, you're going to love this bow. Like the Wakesetter 247 LSV, the 24 MXZ handles well despite its impressive size.

The Malibu Wakesetter 24 MXZ is the best wakeboard boat for you if: You want huge wake and surf performance with an interior that leaves no one behind.
