Loudon, TN | August 24, 2017 – Malibu Boats, Inc. (MBUU), the global leader in watersports towboat sales, has unveiled its new 2018 M235 model. Already the world’s premier ultra-premium wakeboarding and wake surfing boat, the new M235 is loaded with even more technology and luxury.

For 2018, the M235 is equipped with the exclusive new Malibu MultiZone RGB Lighting Controller™, a breakthrough in onboard illumination that allows the user to control the settings of up to three zones of RGB lights. The MultiZone RGB Lighting Controller independently controls the new Rev 10 tower speakers, interior speakers, cup holder lights and more, and is seamlessly integrated with the Viper 2 dashboard system.

A joint venture between Malibu Boats, Wet Sounds and Shadowcaster, the MultiZone RGB Lighting Controller also syncs the lights to the music tempo on the 4,000-watt Wet Sounds audio system, coordinating an incredible array of RGB colors, brightness and strobe with the beat of a song.



Getting out on the water is my favorite way to unwind and enjoy time with friends and family

Industry-Leading Luxury & Performance

Along with best-in-class technology, the 23-foot, 17-passenger M235 boasts Malibu’s deepest Wake Plus hull, most luxurious cabin and an exclusive walk-over design with a new filler cushion option. It is impeccably handcrafted on American soil at the company’s Loudon, Tenn., headquarters.

Powered by the supercharged Monsoon 575 engine—which generates an enormous 575 lb-ft of torque—the M235 moves effortlessly through the water, incorporating Malibu’s renowned agility for unmatched towboat performance. 

The well-appointed M235 includes SeaDek, an indulgently textured soft-grip flooring material, along the deck, swimboard and transom pads. Similarly, the M235’s plush, hand-sewn upholstery delivers extreme comfort and style.

The M235 has attracted its share of superstar owners, including NASCAR sensation Joey Logano and hit country music singer-songwriter, Jake Owen.

“Getting out on the water is my favorite way to unwind and enjoy time with friends and family,” said Owen, a regular on the Billboard country chart who has been recognized by both the Academy of Country Music and American Country Awards. "The M235 is hands-down the best watersports boat I’ve ever owned.”

The Biggest, Most Customizable Surf & Wakeboard Waves

The M235’s incredible wave and wake-creation capabilities begin with the super-deep Wake Plus hull, which is custom designed for each Malibu model. Then, the Quad Hard Tank Ballast System™ and Plug ’n’ Play soft-bag system offer even more weight for steeper, heavier waves and wakes.

In addition, the M235 incorporates the Integrated Surf Platform™ (I.S.P.) to produce the absolute biggest wakeboarding wakes and surf waves. With I.S.P., the size and shape of the wake and wave are easily customized with the tap of a finger to accommodate riders of every age and skill level, from beginner to advanced.

The proprietary I.S.P. system includes three technologies that have revolutionized professional and recreational wake surfing and wakeboarding—Surf Gate™, Power Wedge™ II and Surf Band™.

The Power Wedge II hydrofoil instantly adds up to 1,500 pounds of ballast for maximum wake-generating ability. It also offers the industry’s widest range of customization, enabling Malibu owners to control the size, length and shape of the wake from the 12-inch touch screen Command Center.

Meanwhile, the wave-making power of Malibu’s revolutionary Surf Gate is unparalleled. The driver can quickly and easily adjust the hydraulic Surf Gate settings from the Command Center for instant wave creation. And with Surf Band, wake and wave riders remotely control the Power Wedge II, Surf Gate, audio volume of the rear-facing tower speakers and even boat speed from the water.

The M235 also comes standard with Malibu’s top-of-the-line G4 tower, which features a center pull point for wakeboarding and side pull points for surfing, as well as rear-facing LED lighting.

The M235 is backed by a warranty with lifetime hull coverage—like all 2018 Malibu boats—and is available now from all authorized dealers.
