In other words, this future classic is the best of both worlds. You demanded a 23-foot MXZ—Malibu delivered.

Wakesetter 23 MXZ

Go ahead, check out the options.

Spacious Pickle-fork Bow

This 23-foot 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 perfect wakes and surf waves at watersports speeds.

Tower Options

Opt for the award-winning Malibu Gx™ Tower (pictured here) that raises and lowers at the turn of a dial or go with the Malibu standard G5 Tower that effortlessly stows gear, tows riders and easily folds low.

The 23 MXZ Helm

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

Malibu Stern Turn

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

HD Docking and Rearview Cameras

Malibu’s innovative, award-winning HD rear-view camera is located on the transom while the docking camera is located on the bow, so you can always keep an eye on what’s happening around the boat for increased safety. Footage is viewable and recordable directly from the MaliView Screen.

Wake Viewing and Entertaining

With 5 total positions, the Malibu Wake 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 covers the areas you’re in contact with the most, like the rear swim deck and the sun 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.

Transom Walk-Through

The new 23 MXZ was designed for versatility. The aft sun pad was designed as a safe and secure walkthrough to the transom, but add the filler cushion and it doubles as a luxurious space to soak up the sun.

Malibu Monsoon Engines

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

Flip Down Swim Step

Our patented Flip Down Swim Step makes both lounging on the back of the boat and reentry easy and enjoyable. For even more luxury and ease of use, 23 MXZ owners can opt for the new Powered Swim Step, which deploys in and out of the water with push-button convenience from the stern.

Stern Turn™

Keep your hand on the throttle and with ease maneuver into a tight slip or around for quick rider pick-up. The stern turn thruster’s electric motor is water cooled for longer continuous use while also not compromising storage space because the thruster fully integrates into the rear platform and doesn’t require additional batteries.
