Malibu 23 LSV is the 2021 Boat of the year

For over a dozen years, the iconic 23 LSV has been the best-selling towboat in the world, and Malibu Boats are thrilled for it to be recognised as the best wakeboard and wakesurf boat of the year.

For 2022, Malibu has given the 23 LSV even more features and innovations for their boaters to enjoy. With a classic traditional bow, a featured transom walk-over and new available Powered Swim Step, the 23 LSV has been built with luxury and high-class craftsmanship.

The 23 LSV offers Malibu boaters the ultimate versatility with sport specific hulls to choose from. The Diamond Multi-Sport Hull was created for the multi-sport enthusiast and offers flatter, softer ski wakes. The Wake Plus Hull allows the 23 LSV to sit deeper in the water at slower speeds to increase water displacement for more crisp wakeboard wakes and even better wake surfing waves. The 23 LSV is the essence of the Malibu brand, and Malibu are honored that is has been crowned as the Wake Surfing and Wakeboarding Boat of the Year.

Winning both Wake Surfing Boat of the Year and Wakeboarding Boat of the Year for two years is no small feat and it’s all thanks to the outstanding team at Malibu Boats. Malibu engineers are dedicated to bringing the most cutting-edge technology to customers year after year.

With huge industry advancements such as Surf Gate, Power Wedge III, Quad Hard-Tank Ballast and the Malibu Command Center, Malibu has been able to provide boaters with waves and wakes like never before.The excitement doesn’t stop here. Malibu is also honored to announce that the Gx Tower Misters have been awarded Innovation of the Year for 2021. Introduced and quickly admired, the Gx Tower Misters were designed to keep your entire crew cool. With a simple touch of a button, three misters evenly distributed quickly deploy the mist so that everyone on the boat can enjoy more time on the water.
