Trying to identify my boat

Recommended Posts

whitehairdude

1999 malibu wakesetter 325hp. I don't know if it's a lsv,lsx or whatever all the different monikers are. It's a vdrive not direct. Wake hull or diamond hull?? Also, can anyone identify the tower that is on it. The speakers are from a air Nautique. I've owned the boat for a few months now and I need a cover for it but cannot for the life of me find how to identify tower or boat. 20150816_144846_zpsxmrsmptb.jpg

Wakesetter vlx if the resources section is right. Pretty much the only possibility for a 99

As for the tower, I'd guess it's a Skylon but not sure. Your cover guy (which is hopefully evolutioncovers.com) should really just need that picture and a measurement from the bow tip to each leg.

Engine cover check! Had to replace the engine in it already, guess that pic was right before I pulled it. Ok, so the vlx is what it should be then. How do you decide that? It isn't on the title or boat?

Because the vlx appears to be the only vdrive that Malibu offered in 1999.

10-4 Thanks. Was looking into getting a wickedwakesurf gate for it and they asked what it was and I had no idea what the difference was or how to tell. See guys throwing lsv lxi etc, and I really don't know the difference.

I had a 2000 sunsetter vlx that looked identical to that. It had the wakesetter package on it though, which was the graphics and the MLS. My tower was different than yours though.

Call or email Malibu, the guys in tech support are very helpful and cal look up the boat in the database based on the HIN. From there, they can tell you what it is but may not be able to provide the full build sheets (like current boats).

Like the others suggested, it looks like a Sunsetter to me. Tower is aftermarket, not an OEM Malibu tower. HIN is on the stern, driver's side, and should give you more info.

Wakesetter is a package, not a model, and indicates it was sold with a tower, ballast & some bling on the dash.

I think it is a Skylon Tuna Tower - the same as my '99 Sunsetter lxi
