Newest addition to Wakesetter series maximizes space, style and performance

Merced, Calif. Malibu Boats (@malibuboats) is proud to announce the newest addition to its Wakesetter series  the 2012 Malibu Wakesetter 22 MXZ. With its super-wide, extra-deep bow, bold new take on classic Malibu style, and signature performance, comfort and quality, the all-new Wakesetter 22 MXZ is designed to maximize your experience on the water.

Designed entirely in a digital environment, the Wakesetter 22 MXZ features millimeter-perfect construction and a sleek new style that commands attention on the water. The wide-open bow helps create acres of seating and storage, while the extra-deep design provides a safe and snug social space. All that room screams Malibu luxury, thanks to supple vinyl and a legion of stainless-steel grab handles and cup holders.

The 22 MXZ's all-new hull delivers Malibu's signature standout performance. Up front, it's super-sharp entry into the water yields a smooth, dry ride in even the roughest water, and the big, clean wake boasts long transitions designed to take your riding to the next level.

"The wake definitely has that classic Wakesetter shape with long transitions to take off and land on and it's nice and big without adding a ton of weight," says Malibu Boats team rider Brian Grubb. "It also looks amazing ¿ both when you see that bow coming at you and the rounded corners in the rear."

It's all topped off by a host of Malibu's best-in-class features, from the exclusive Illusion G3 tower with swivel board racks and the touch-screen performance of Malibu Touch Command to the rear-facing transom seating, which features a stereo remote, stainless-steel cup holders and swim step-accessible wet storage.

The Newest, Most Versatile Ski Boat On The Water

Merced, Calif.  Making its debut at the Malibu Open in early August, the all-new Response TXi made an immediate impact, pulling slalom champion Will Asher into 41 off. Besides the TXi's proven high-end performance, the new T Cut Diamond Hull will accommodate different levels of skiers as well, by taming the flow of water to allow smoother wakes at slower speeds and longer line lengths. And customers can also expect the finest styling and plush amenities Malibu is known for. In essence, every skier will feel connected to more than just the rope.

Todd Ristorcelli, Editor of WATERSKI Magazine has skied behind every new ski boat in the last 15 years and was very impressed with the 2012 TXi. "Malibu must have had big-time confidence in their new Response TXi, by immediately launching it to the competitive scrutiny of the Malibu Open," Ristorcelli said. "The result: flawless performance. The boat's innovative running surface produces pillow-soft wakes for skiing's elite as well as for advancing longline skiers looking for every competitive edge they can get." Look for the TXi to be featured in a three-page gatefold advertisement in WATERSKI's Winter, 2011 issue, which will arrive in time for Orlando's SURF EXPO in early September.
