Very very sharp boat. Interior needs a bit of a chill pill.... But otherwise sharp boat.

Trailer looks very similar to Boatmate. Except for the extra large rear corner steps. No adjustable height seat base. Darn.

I like how their boat pictures make Malibus seem like they are meant for winter sports.

Wonder if they will keep buying a ton of boats if prices of a barrel of oil keep going down.

They sure do. This one keeps growing on me. The pictures don't do it justice. The metallic yellow looks pretty cool in the sunlight.

Every time I see a wizard lake boat I like it. Look like an awesome dealer.

That interior is known to catch fire

I thought they ordered too many Malibus this past year, but they seem to have sold most all of them. They do have a LOT of unsold 2015 G series boats. Maybe the oil money buyers are opting for Malibus as the "value" choice between the two?

Did anyone else notice that the "thing" to hold your phone appears to be fixed to hold larger phablets? Also, the seat back is changed up some.

Also, who noticed a button next to the throttle?! Looks like it is for the powered up and down seat???

I was going to ask the same question, here is a close up. Maybe someone could call and ask them to put a phone in it and take a picture... iPhone 6 Plus or Samsung Galaxy S6 for comparison would be useful.

If it holds my phone and it can be retrofitted (not a bigger plate than '15) then I will order the part and "upgrade" my boat!

Yes, they have upsized the phone holder. That's been known for a while. The button next to the throttle is probably the driver's seat heater.

If anyone goes and sees these boats in person, I'd be very grateful for a measurement on the 2016 OEM underwater transom lights. They are 300% brighter than the 2015's and I'd like to swap them, IF the screw hole locations are identically offset. A measurement of the center-to-center screw hole separation for mounting the underwater 2016 transom lights would be great.

Thanks.

The silver badge on the side that notes the type of boat is gone too.

Actually, it's been moved to the windshield. I think this is a good decision. I've worried that fenders when tied off to a dock could damage my SS badge.

If you look, it has an arrow up and down on the switch... not sure what heater has those indications on the switch??

Ok, if it has an arrow, then you are probably correct.
