Malibu Boats, manufacturers of the best selling wake boat of all time (23 LSV), are adding to their legacy with the introduction of the 23 MXZ. Fitting right between the 22 and 24 MXZ, the 23 MXZ gives customers another option to find the perfect boat for them. Packed with features you’ve come to expect from Malibu, the 23 MXZ also pushes out a wave and wake large enough to satisfy any rider.

Big, consistent wakes are what Malibu’s all about

Ain’t she a beaut?!

The first big change any captain would notice is the revamped Command Center at the helm. Malibu has decided to swap the placement of the rotary knob as well as the secondary touchscreen to be a bit more ergonomic. With the dial on the right and the secondary screen now on the left, it allows the driver to keep his eyes up and on the water. With wireless charging stations throughout, optional power GX tower, new Monsoon engines that can handle the weight needed to make a huge wake, and Malibu’s new Stern-Turn Technology, the 23 MXZ can handle anything you throw at it.

The optional Stern Turn Technology is another breakthrough from Malibu. This electric thruster helps the driver maneuver the boat more precisely in slow-speed situations. The controls are right on the throttle so you don’t even need to take your hands off to stay in control. It’s also fully integrated into the rear platform so it doesn’t take up any storage space.
