The 21 VLX is one of the most versatile in the Malibu line. How much versatility you want is up to you — you can choose between the Diamond Multisport Hull or the Wake Plus Hull. The boat we tested featured the Diamond Multisport Hull, and the wave was impressive, especially for a shorter, narrower boat. The more mellow shape has more power than you’d expect for a 21-foot boat. The pocket is still easy to find and stay in, as well.
