Wakesetter 23 MXZ

Go ahead, check out the options.

Spacious Pickle-fork Bow

This new pickle-fork model gives you extra roomy and deep bow seating that’s comfortable for several adults. Now your bow passengers can even enjoy phone storage with USB charging along with plenty of cupholders.

Wake Plus™ Hull

This hull was designed specifically for wake surfing and wakeboarding applications. It allows the boat to sit deeper in the water at slower speeds creating more water displacement for bigger wakes and surf waves at water sports speeds.

Tower Options

Opt for the Malibu Gx™ Tower, pictured here, that raises and lowers at the turn of a dial or go with the all-new 2021 Malibu standard G5 Tower that stows gear and tows riders effortlessly while also folding lower for improved clearance.

The Malibu Commanding View

From the helm seat, the driver will enjoy the luxury Command Center. With new touch screens that make it easier than ever to find one-touch surf or wake settings, and features like wireless charging your captain is sure to be happy.

Malibu Stern Turn

The optional Stern Turn allows the captain to activate rear thrusters from the throttle to turn the boat on a dime for easy water maneuvering and convenient docking capabilities.

Hull Logo Customization

Further customize your boat with the choice of White, Azure, Black, Dark Blue, Graphite, Red, Vapor Blue and Zephyr Blue hull logo decals

Wake Viewing and Entertaining

With 8 total positions, the New Malibu Multi View Bench Seat™ begins as standard cockpit seating but converts into a rear-facing seat with multiple positions or conveniently into a picnic-style table.

CUSTOM MALIBU SOFT GRIP

Designed and crafted by Malibu, custom soft grip flooring coats the areas you’re in contact with the most like the rear swim deck and the swim pad walk through—not to mention other areas like the integrated trash can lid and storage areas. Why? Because we know how much more you’ll appreciate the comfort and safety it provides.

Wet Sounds Audio

Only the best for the best. Set the mood on the water with a fully tuned Wet Sounds stereo system with crisp highs and perfect bass. Choose up to 4 tower speakers in white or black.

End the dilemma: both a walk-through and full sun pad

The new 23 MXZ was designed for versatility. The aft sun pad was designed to accommodate either a walk through or add the filler cushion to lay out and sunbathe.

Malibu Monsoon Engines

Designed to be the most reliable, quietest and cleanest engines on the water, choose between the Malibu Monsoon M5Di™ and Malibu Monsoon M6Di™ and Malibu Monsoon LT4 powered by GM Marine to power your 23 MXZ.

Flip Down Swim Step

Our patented Flip Down Swim Step makes both lounging on the back of the boat and re-entry easy and enjoyable.

Entering and returning to the boat has never been easier for a human or canine swimmer. The available swim step makes enjoying time in the water a breeze by locking into place either stored on the swim platform or deployed in the water. Custom Malibu Soft grip coats both the step and platform for comfort and safety.

The Malibu Command Center

The mOS (Malibu Operating System) was specially designed to put the information the driver needs in the optimal location with easy to read graphics. Featuring a 30% higher resolution screen with larger color depth, the screen has never looked better. Manual controls have been placed to minimize the driver’s need to take their eyes off the water or the steering wheel.
