  1. 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!! ‘21 23LSV w/ G5 tower & 14” trailer rims on a tandem axle.
  2. After having spent about 20 hours in the new 23 LSV over the last two weekends, I wanted to share my review of this boat. Before I start, my background of different Malibu boats. I had a 2011 23 LSV, loved the boat, upgraded/downgraded in 2014 to a VLX for surfgate. It was great boat, had a lot of power with the torque prop, could wakeboard full ballast, 750's in rear and 1,000 triangle up front with wedge in the max setting. My favorite boat to this point has been the 2015 23 LSV (a friend's boat). Something about PWII, GM Motor, and updated dash were a good combination. I primarily wak
  3. Folks, I want to use the B&W Hitch to tow my '21 23 LSV but I'm concerned that I'll be pushing/exceeding the capacity of the 2" ball. The 2" ball on the B&W hitch has a max capacity of 7,500 lbs. regardless of the size of shank. My dealer told me that my boat and trailer weigh 6,500 lbs dry. Add almost 400 lbs of gas and I'm already at 6,900. Even assuming I don't put any lead in the boat, add gear and I'll be pushing/exceeding the 7,500 lb limit. I prefer the looks and the functionality of the B&W over any other hitch. What are your thoughts?
  4. Looking for a clean, lightly used 23' LSV - 2016 and newer. Any suggestions of solid Malibu dealers out there (in the US) with fair pricing and inventory that don't generally list their pre-owned inventory on the common national websites (OnlyInboards, FB MarketPlace, etc.) - but have their pre-owned inventory listed on their website(s)? Any suggestions would be much appreciated...thanks! Cheers!
  5. Looking at some 2020 23 LSVs with different motors and would love some insight / opinions. The end game for me is surfing with the optimum wave...full ballast, PNP, 500 lbs of lead up front / port coffin and a 500 lb bow sac when needed. I'm in the Midwest at a lower altitude (810'). Can a M5 with a high altitude / torque prop do everything I want it to do or do I need to go bigger? Does a M6 and / or 450 require a high altitude prop? Fuel efficiency difference in the three motors (when surfing)? Are there any other factors that I'm missing? Were the transmissions / ratios all t
  6. So we currently have a 2019 Malibu 21 VLX which has been well used and has nearly 250 hours. 6.0L engine is great and quiet. We are considering an upgrade but there are considerations so would love some advice. First, we have about 39” of water depth at the end of our dock. New boat requires a new lift and probably another 4’ of dock for a few more inches of depth and bigger boat. VLX gets on and off a 5k lift no problem. Not a deal-breaker but we are in a shared dock within an association so will have to navigate that. Second is the tow vehicle and I have a 2019 Ram 1500 4x4 with 8200 l
