Malibu Boats has announced the launch of an all-new multi-sport boat to the 2020 lineup, the Malibu Wakesetter 20 VTX. The 20 VTX is the industry’s renowned, best-selling crossover wakeboat of all time. The term VTX stands for versatility and the 20 VTX is a marine engineering marvel, designed for families that love to ski glass in the morning and make great wakes and waves for boarding and surfing in the afternoon.
“Our engineering team put in countless hours developing innovative hull designs that continue to make the 20 VTX the greatest cross-over boat in watersports history,” said CEO Jack Springer. “What makes this new boat unique is the ability to select the sport you prefer without compromising performance for the rest of your crew. At Malibu we are all about performance and the 20-foot VTX lets you customize your performance for the perfect on water experience.”
The 20 VTX has added features from the TXi ski boat that has world record-setting Response, to provide an unforgettable on-water experience regardless of which sport you choose. The new boat is easy to tow, easy to trailer and easy to own. It has a dry weight of 3,500 pounds, and can be towed with a small SUV and has only 20 feet in length, fitting in a standard garage and on size-restricted waterways. Also, 20 VTX is the most nimble and exciting boats on the water, allowing breeze-like docking and lift-loading.
There are other features too that offer special functions to the boat such as tournament-approved Cut-Diamond Hull rides high on the water, making for soft, passable wakes. The Gorilla fins keep a perfect line and the new Malibu-made Monsoon M5Di engine coupled with Zero Off GPS speed control delivers a consistent pull.
