Press Release:


Loudon, TN | August 22, 2014 — A completely new boat from the hull up, the 2015 Malibu Wakesetter 22 VLX is a total redesign of the previous 21 VLX model. This 22-foot model features a new running surface designed to deliver perfect wakes and waves for wakeboarding and wakesurfing. With Malibu’s amazing new Command Center, featuring the 12-inch MaliView and seven-inch MTC touchscreens, total control of everything is at your fingertips, including the now-standard Zero Off GPS speed control, Surf Gate, ballast systems, and the bigger, hydraulic Power Wedge II, a 2015 upgrade that builds even better wakes and has been engineered to get boats on plane much faster.

Malibu Boats CEO Jack Springer is excited to be launching the 22 VLX at Orlando’s Surf Expo on September 4th. “Considering the popularity of our previous VLX, we knew we were improving something that was already great,” says Springer. “For 2015, our product-development team has delivered more new innovations than ever before in our 33-year history. With the 22 VLX’s new hull, our new Power Wedge II, and our unrivaled Surf Gate, we’ve made this the most versatile 22-foot boat on the market and have increased our surfing advantage with the continuing evolution of our wakesurf system. All of this makes it one of our most exciting 2015 boats, and I can’t wait to show it to the entire industry at Surf Expo.”

The wake on the 22 VLX is easily fine-tuned for every skill level, from beginners to the top riders on our Malibu Pro Team. Malibu’s artisanal craftsmanship is evident in every aspect of this thoroughbred machine, with updates like the G3.2 Tower with easy latching, a three-mode Livorsi throttle, new hull graphics, transom seating, a drop-in Igloo cooler, and three new metallic gel colors to choose from. Upgrade options include the new gold-standard G4 Tower, the premium Power Wedge II, high-fidelity G-Force Wet Sounds speakers and amps, WakeView seating, and a new, intuitive analog control dial for the Surf Gate, Power Wedge II, speed, and stereo.
