This boat is located in Weatherford, TX, but can be delivered to many surrounding DFW lakes.
The XTi’s center mounted engine makes for better handling and an aft seating zone that features a removable table and wraparound seating for up to four adults. A nimble 21 feet 6 inches overall and 8 feet, 2 inches wide and comes with a spacious bow area up front for tanning and lounging. Here you’ll also find contoured grab handles, four drink holders and a pair of stereo speakers. Best of all, Malibu’s Ballast Monitoring System and Precision Pro Speed Control gives the driver ultimate control of all the ballast on board and exact speed settings.
Malibu's new standard Illusion XS wakeboard tower that topped the Malibu Wakesetter 23 XTi looked sharp, literally. It's as if Malibu took a saw and contorted it into a beautiful, arcing piece of wakeboarding art. For a more traditional look, Malibu offers the Titan III wakeboard tower and the smoother Illusion X wakeboard tower.
Wake shaper: The Malibu hull will run fine without it. But to be able to push down the equivalent of 1,200 more pounds into the water with a simple button at the cockpit, the Power Wedge is an upgrade we recommend.
Highlight feature: The new interior seating — no question. With the addition of the forward-facing bench in front of the engine, there are now two lounges in the Malibu Wakesetter 23 XTi. And the walkway is now placed behind the driver, so that seat can fully swivel and adjust.
The wake: Our riders found their personal sweet spot behind the Malibu Wakesetter 23 XTi at 70 feet going 21.5 mph. They liked the peak there a lot, even drawing a picture of it on the test sheet that looked like a shark fin. Double-ups were also money and easy to get into.
