Help!! VTX or VLX

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me with this, I love to ski, I surf as well but not great at it. My kids love to surf and wakeboard. We have a 08 Vtx and want to upgrade to a boat with surfgates. Our kids are getting bigger, would love more space but don’t want to give up my ski wake. We are looking at a 2016  22 Malibu VLX diamond hull. Do you think I’ll be disappointed? Has anyone skied behind both?

Keep what you have that works for skiing. If you think you need surfgates add a GoSurf Assist (on sale at Wakemakers today). Put the money you save in the kids college fund.

My 2 cents.

The 2016 vlx is a different hull than the 2019 vlx. 2015/2016 the vlx was a 22 and wider beam then in 2017 it became the budget boat and dropped to 21 with a 98" beam. 

I tell people, I bought the “cheap” Malibu and they laugh.
