Wakeboard Boat Review
Malibu’s Wakesetter 247 LSV is absolutely massive. But this 24-footer isn’t just one of the biggest wakeboard boats you’ll ever see, it’s also one of the most luxurious. The Malibu Boats Wakesetter 247’s cab-forward design means the helm and observer seat are farther forward, which makes room for one of the biggest lounges of any watersports boat. With wraparound bench seating for more than a dozen people, this lounge will become the place to party and socialize. The Malibu Wakesetter 247 has standout performance as well. In fact, this is one nimble 24-footer. With or without ballast, the 247 turns well, accelerates quickly and doesn’t dip the bow. You’re definitely going to feel like you’re driving a smaller boat at the helm of this monster. The 247 also has high gunnels that provide safety in rough conditions and keep spray to a minimum. You won’t have to worry about the prop wash coming over the transom with a fully loaded boat, and because of the high gunnels, you get more ergonomic seats with higher backs.
The Malibu Wakesetter 247 LSV is the best wakeboard boat for you if: You’re looking to bring everyone with you on a boat that offers as much party potential as it does wake performance.
