New Feature for the MXZ line - M235 like.

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

Just found out Malibu has new feature not included in the early MXZ builds.  It's fold down step in seating.  Note the rear hinges on the back seats.  These each fold down so you can safely step in and out of the boat without damaging your seat seams.  I thought it was really neat and added them to my build.   Cost you ask?  $200.  I couldn't believe it either considering how much the bench seat costs.

For some reason it's freezing when I try and upload the pics so here's the links.

Pretty sure that was on the 2016 M last year at our boat show.  I like the idea, but practically speaking I don't think we would use it. Someone would have to move to fold it down and everyone would have to learn to step there vs elsewhere on the seats.  

 

Edit - just realized you meant it is new for the MXZ.  Disregard my comment on the boat show last year.

Yeah, I don't think I'd pay a lot for it.  I had to replace a corner cushion under warranty on LSV because the seam split and I'm guessing it was due to people getting in.  We pull up to the dock on that side and it's right where people step down.  Also, at $150 (accurate price) I think it will be added to most builds going forward.  

 

Anyhow, it's not mind blowing, but it's a neat little feature for $150.  And we wonder how these boats get so expensive...

Reminds me of custom home building when a client gets sticker shock for tons of add-ons.  $200 here, $500 there can add up quick!

For the price of that step I would order it though.  That may be one of the cheapest upgrades available!

It would be nice if the middle seat had that option as the walkway is in the middle. I'm not sure how many people would walk down the middle and step over to the side to use the step. However, it would be nice for those pulling up to docks and those who have boats on lifts like we do. Our back corner cushions get destroyed from people stepping on them.
