2013 Malibu 24 MXZ hits North Carolina!

Recommended Posts

thtrog

The weather cleared and allowed me to take delivery first of the week. I stopped by the marina to take pictures, but did not drop it in for a test run. I was so tempted on such a nice day, but time didn't allow & the lake had lots of debris from recent rise in the water level. Just before another front, the boat is dry in the shop for stereo work. Spring can’t come soon enough!

They have one here in so cal at Tillys marine. The boat is HUUUUGE! Sits on a triple axle trailer and the trailer still looks small. As nice as those boats are, a bit overkill in my opinion.

Thanks Crew! The color combo was one of few killer ones my son put together, we tweaked it a little bit. The red accents on the wheels were made possible by the great guys at Boatmate Trailers. I was really impressed how well they matched the metallic on the trailer, it's not a typical paint job. The red theme carries on with the LS3 and some LED work to follow....

They are Rock Tamers, they came from www.mudflaps.com a couple years ago. I used the Malibu flaps bought on here in a group buy.

Sick boat! That boat is massive! Congratulations... That wake is going to be crazy huge... I have a couple questions for you..

How much extra weight are you going to add with pnp?

How do you like the new bimini? I really like how there are no poles coming off tower. Super easy to put up and take down. Do you have any pics of bimin deployed?

I just looked again at your pics... did they not give you the new bimini top? My dealer has one that has no front bars to connect when its deployed. I see you have the braces mounted on the front hoop.

I dont care what people say about trailers...but that trailer adds the icing on the cake. Boatmate really does a nice job w/ these things.

I am in love. Great looking boat!!!!!

I don't like how Indmar now calls all of their engines 'Monsoon'. Without knowing the new change, if you told me the boat had the 'monsoon' motor, I would have scoffed. Since the Monsoon motor for many years has been a reference to only the 5.7L engine.

The LS3 looks beautiful.

Thanks! I plan on adding 750's in the rear and have a bow sac and lead bags if needed...also 80 gal of fuel back there! I did not get the new slider bimini from CS, after seeing the video and talking to them on the phone I decided to stay with the hinged. I had the boat less than 24 hours, so I did not deploy it. I did take a couple pics of the hardware, it appears to have a new hinge and front supports. Best of all the GL canvas is all Sunbrella, even a nice boot for the bimini.

Thanks Tall, it's the first boat that my wife has actually told me she likes. :biggrin: I have not asked, but I expect the change in engine badging came from Malibu, it allows them to offer the same lineup in Axis also. It is somewhat confusing that the HP does not match the model.

I opened up FB earlier and spotted my boat in another NC dealer pics at the factory!

Just curious, why did you not go with the style that does not attach to the front crossbar? My dealer had one set up on there 24 MXZ and it looked great. Apparently it is super easy to put up and take down, I was planning on getting this one for my VLX order. I would like to hear the pros and cons to both of them.
