Boat Color - Help - Reuben?

Recommended Posts

I'm ordering a Malibu Response LXi and want to know if the Reuben is a deep/dark red or more of a burgundy? I'm looking for a deep/dark red. Thanks

It's more of a deep dark red. The regal is a bright red. Below is a picture of one of Skihorse's promo boats that he had sent me a few years back that shows the color pretty well.

The burgandy color that you don't want (although it's real pretty) is called Sangria. The Reuben is definetely a rich darker red. It'll look great.

Reuben is definitely a deep, dark red. I don't think that pictures or the Malibu Catalog are the way to pick colors. I requested color samples from the factory. As was previously stated the Regal can almost look orange in the right light. However, in low light the Reuben can almost pull a little purple. I went with Regal on my VTX because that is what my wife wanted. I really didn't care, all I wanted was the boat and no crazy colors incase I ever have to sell it. My preference would have been to be halfway between Reuben and Regal.

The 2008 Malibu brochure has a great pic of the Reuben color on I believe a 247 RX. It's a pretty color, although I think sangria is sweet enough to have thrown a splash of it on my boat!
