21 LX: HYBRID WAKESETTER

Truth On The Water™

Known for its hybrid bow which incorporates the sharp lines of a traditional bow to cut smoothly through the water & the spacious comfort of a pickle-fork bow, the 21 LX is a true hybrid of the world-renowned Wakesetter line. Available with either the legendary Wake Plus™ Hull that has been the foundation of Malibu’s proven board sports performance for decades or the Malibu Diamond Hull™ for a combination of wake, surf, and ski that has no equal, the 21 LX takes customization to a whole new level. With seating for 12 and storage for all the crew’s gear, the 21 LX has plenty of space and all the amenities to leave the dock for a long day on the water.

 

If you’re looking for the perfect entry point to the Wakesetter brand that’s easy to tow and fits on size-restricted waterways without sacrificing performance or customization, the 21 LX is the only place you should be — let’s get on the water.
