LOUDON, Tenn., July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With today's official release of the all-new Wakesetter 25 LSV, Malibu delivers the boat built to make the wakes and waves of your dreams. Every Malibu athlete who's shredded behind the massive 25-footer says this brand-new beast kicks up what are unmistakably the biggest, cleanest wakes and waves they've ever experienced. Never has there been so much anticipation and athlete excitement around a new boat.
And this is one big bad boat. But thanks to our engineering and design teams, the 25 LSV is incredibly agile on the water, despite its monstrous size. This is the first time that a towboat this big has featured the performance to match its proportions. The 25 LSV handles beautifully, plus it can easily haul up to 19 people, with plenty of room for everything else. And among all the other great 2016 upgrades, you can also spec the 25 LSV with our Integrated Surf Platform (including our new Surf Band wrist remote), action-camera mounts on the transom, a power-adjustable helm seat, a reversible WakeView rear bench, and a rear-view camera that allows the driver to easily watch what's going on behind the boat.
Malibu CEO Jack Springer is thrilled to launch this incredible new performance towboat. "The Wakesetter 25 LSV has been nothing but fun since the very first day we put it on the water," says Springer. "It just blows people's minds. This is unquestionably the most versatile, highest-performing 25-footer on the market, and it has everyone tremendously excited. Our athletes have been raving about it. Every new or redesigned boat we make is built from the hull up to be incomparably versatile on the water and to deliver multisport capability at the highest level. Our customers want to be able to maximize their performance in several watersports, so we build our boats to allow you to reach your full potential in wakeboarding and wakesurfing. None of our Wakesetters is one-dimensional or designed for a single purpose."
Malibu Pro Team rider Jeff Langley says, "There's nothing that compares. With its huge, barreling surf wave, truly massive wake, and all of the awesome 2016 upgrades, the new 25 LSV is the boat of my dreams. Ever since Malibu dropped the 'El Dorado' and 'Quintuplets' sneak-peek videos, my phone has been blowing up with calls from friends and fans begging to know more about the 25 LSV and just how epic the ride is. Let me tell you: you've got to experience it to believe it. Amazing."
