Malibu V-Drive Barefoot Boat

Recommended Posts

I was reading on American Barefoot Waterski Club (http://barefootworlds.com/BarefootForum/default.asp) that some people commented that Malibu was coming out with a V-Drive boat targeting Barefooters since so many competitive barefooters seem to strongly dislike the 2007 Response LXi. Does anyone know more? true/false? Which hull? What lenght & beam?

the 20lsv is a pretty good footing boat, V-drives seem to have a firmer table, also then can get the speed you need. It has been rumored that that might be Malibu's footing boat, but I think they're going to the Response/LX

The actual rumor that is floating around on the Barefoot forums is that Malibu is going to stretch and modify the Response to create a V-Drive barefoot boat. I don't know if this is wishful thinking or if there is any basis to the rumor.

I heard from a barefoot tourney driver that they are going to the 20' lsv

08 will be the Response LX.

Malibu has a V-drive, it's called a VTX and a 20 LSV. They sure aren't going to build a special barefoot boat for the 20 units they might sell the first year, and 5 the second year. And that's counting the ones I'd buy!

One of the guys in our group is a Malibu promo barefooter and the v-drive rumer got the axe because none of the promo skiers wanted it. So they are going back to the Response Lx with the Hammerhead in it for the barefoot boat next year. With all of the barefooters complaining about this years RLXI they are happy that Malibu has chosen the Respnse LX for next year's barefoot boat.
