I like how they highlight the powered windscreen , while narrator says (luxury and refinement) 

"excuse me Jeeves, would you retract the bow windscreen"

Maybe - seems like a boat that expensive should have a little fridge built in

Im still trying to see where the maids quarters are at? I assume there is a champagne tap as well.

Still scratching my head on the marketing from Malibu. I don't want to be told this is luxurious, isn't that really up to the user/buyer to determine.

im fine with the branding and the montra "truth is on the water" but the voice over and the tempo of the video footage don't match up, I feel like I'm watching a wake video with a guy talking to me about the side effects of a prescription medication.

am I alone here?

The attempt to make it dramatic fell flat.

And a generator to power the fridge, and a head, and a wet bar, and a V berth (oops, that would displace the bow ballast....)

Is the windshield different this year?

Just thinking about the market segmentation in the boat industry.  If the wake/surf boats keep getting bigger and more expensive - and they sell - how long will it be until Sea Ray, Formula, Cobalt Chris-Craft, etc. move "down" and start making boats with surfing features?  I know about I/O and all that but there are new drives, or they could go inboard.  They don't have to worry about ski wakes.  Malibu certainly doesn't with the M235, and, as we all know, no one wake boards anymore!

Looks like it.  The windshield wraps around with 1 price.  I like it, but looks really expensive to replace if it broke.

Pretty sure if you can afford the boat, you could afford the replacement.

Didn't notice the windshield, but it's sick now that I noticed. No more blind spot in the corner.

What's with the quarter-slot the first wakeboarder is showing off?  Nice way to kick off a promotional video!

^^^they all do that. I'm sure your boat is the same way. How many does the coast Guard placard say you can have vs how many fit comfortably? Does malibu marketing suck? We can probably all agree they do, but calling them out for mentioning coast Guard ratings probably isn't where I'd start...
