2021 23LSV Height w/ G5 Tower


Recommended Posts

Hello Malibu Family,

I’m just a few months away from picking up my new 2021 23LSV and I was wondering if anyone could tell me the height of the boat (on trailer) with the tower up. 
 

Any info will help, but if you have the exact configuration below, please chime in and give me a measurement!!

My dealer shared that he "thinks" it is 10'6" on trailer with tower up.

I've heard it's under 8' with the new G5. I think around 7' 10" IIRC.

I would verify that... when I took a look at the dealer it didn't look under 8'.  Gx is about 7'9" if you take the racks off and that is because it is pretty much flush with the top of the windshield.  The 23LSV w/ G5 I looked at was quite a bit above the windshield when folded.  From what I saw I do not think it would have cleared 8'

What trailer?

 

It changes depending on the trailer.

The standard 2 axle Malibu trailer.  Wheel size makes a very small (1-2") difference.  That's about it.

That looks official, but the numbers don't seem to add up?  A5 70.5" that is less than 6'? I'm confused.  Can you clarify.

Wow... so they missed an 8' door by 1/2" with the G5??  Thanks crazy.     GX remains the only real choice if you need to put your 23 away in a garage with an 8' door.  I suppose the G5 would work if you were just doing once a year winter storage and deflated the tires.

So am I to believe that a 2021 23 LSV (with 14" wheels and the GX tower) with the tower folded is 7'-5" and would clear my garage header about the same as my '07 VLX?....... That seems really fishy to me as the boats have gotten so much bigger since then.... And that has been the main reason for me to keep rocking my old Bu

Wow Gregtay, that boat is beautiful.... If I want to upgrade before we move, I will be looking for a unicorn if we decide to buy a used one.... A boat with a GX tower and 14" wheels in a color scheme that we like....
