Looking for a Tower for a 1996 Sunsetter - any advice?

Recommended Posts

I am just now joining the Malibu world with the recent purchase of a 1996 Sunsetter LX. I love it because of the small slalom wakes (vs. our old I/O). But some of my kids are hoping to wakeboard as well - the problem no tower and no ballasts (yet). Being a newbie here is there any advice for a reasonably priced tower that will look great on this boat and what to do about ballasts (this is a new one for me).

Thanks in advance for your help!

Star One Tower. Very clean and very strong!

I've got a 96 Sunsetter VLX and love my Big Air H2O tower. I used to work with the guy that makes them and it's the only aftermarket tower under $3k that I've seen that is as sturdy as the Titan tower. I've got a friend that has one on a 97 Tige' as well and he loves it too.

If you plan on continuing to use the ski pylon don't get any of the forward leaning towers like the Aerial Freeride. when you cut out your tow rope will hit the tower and possibly get hung up. The Star One shorty looks pretty damn good on the DDs if you ask me.

The S1W (Titan II) Deluxe is $1,699. Call Scott and he'll give you a Crew deal. Best tower out there, and its affordable.

My '98 Sunsetter LX came with the Skylon Classic Swoop tower. I think it looks great. It definitely is sturdy and seems a bit higher than other towers on the market.
