Is length overall with or without platform?


Recommended Posts

Dear Captains,

I'm planning on buying a 2011 Malibu Wakesetter VLX. Length is 21'6" regarding specs. Is this value with the swim platform or without? I always thought that the VLX is 21'6" without the swim platform. But as I've seen the boat documents (adapted documents for Europe, in metres), they say about 19'8" (which could be about a platform lenght shorter, and I know that length is written down without platform in Europe).

I'm just curious if this could be a mistake in the document or if the boat is really 21'6" with platform?

Would be nice if somebody could give me an answer on this :-)

Thanks for the feedback! 

So it seems that somebody took 21'6" as length with platform and subtracted the 2' for the platform. This would explain the value of 19'8" in the documents.

Anyhow, just to make it clear:

VLX without platform: 21'6"
VLX with platform: 23'6"
