Additionally, I was blown away at the size/length of the surf wake. John and the service department at Texas Malibu were extremely helpful and provided a great Malibu 101 overview for operations. No regrets!

Malibu decided that customers buying the best boats on the market should be able to haul them with the best trailers. So we began making our own. We hired the best team of craftspeople in the business to custom-build trailers that matched our boats in engineering and quality.

Depth Alarm

As you back the trailer down the ramp on the way to load your boat, use the depth alarm to let you know when the trailer hitch is at the optimal point under water to load the boat. No need to yell to the person in the boat or play a guessing game. Load seamlessly every single time.

Electric over hydraulic brake

Option up your braking system to let you have full, adjustable controls of where you engage brakes on your car and trailer.

Hand Break

When the trailer is unhitched, there are 2 easy-to-engage hand brakes inside of the frame that ensure your trailer isn’t going to go anywhere when it’s not supposed to.
