Change Illusion X for an Illusion XS Tower


Recommended Posts

I have a 2008 '23 LSV. I ordered it in 2007 without having seen the boat with an Illusion XS tower. My dealer did not have one in stock that I could see in person. I only saw it in a photo. So, I was skeptical to order my new boat with a Tower, which was a huge selling point for me to choose a Malibu Boat, that I had never seen in person. I ended up ordering the Illusion X tower on my boat. Now that I have seen the Illusion XS tower in person. I like it so much. So, I have several questions and would appreciate your information.


1. Can you swap the Illusion X for an XS tower easily, without any modifications to the boat? Is a change just a bolt-on, or does it involve more?

2. How much would the XS tower cost me?

3. How much would it cost me to have it installed on my boat?

4. Will my bimini top for my Illusion X tower work with an XS tower?

Thanks in advance for your help.

To convert over from a x to a xs you would have to fill the existing mounting holes re gelcoat etc. The xs mounts farther back than the x. Everything is different bimini and racks will not swap over most cans will swap over the only ones i know of that dont line up is the titans. It would be a expensive swap. I would $6000 to $8000.
