For the fourth year running, Malibu Boats is thrilled to be crowned the 2023 Wakesurfing and Wakeboarding Boat of the Year Award for the iconic Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV in the highly competitive WakeWorld Riders Choice Awards. In addition, the 2023 innovation award was presented to the versatile and innovative Malibu MaxPivot Seat™. The WakeWorld Riders Choice Awards are decided in a month-long international online contest that challenges wake sports enthusiasts to pick their favorite products and riders of the year.

“These awards are some of the most prestigious in the industry because they come straight from the people who use the products and engage the lifestyle,” said Malibu CEO Jack Springer. “It’s an honor to have the MaxPivot seat recognized for its industry-leading convenience and innovation and we are very appreciative! The highest honor imaginable is to have the industry and the boating world in general show respect for an entire model so we are very grateful with the recognition of our 23 LSV. The 23 LSV is the best-selling watersports boat of all time because it fits the needs of so many families, and this award just punctuates that market dominance. I have no doubt the 23 LSV’s versatility, performance, luxury and style were the reasons it came out on top for the fourth year in a row.”

Wakesurfing and Wakeboarding Boat of the Year!

The Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV combines sleek, traditional bow lines with ground-breaking technology and world-class watersports performance all wrapped up in a stylish package. At 23 feet, the 23 LSV’s just-right size is a huge factor in its unprecedented popularity. With spacious seating for 16, the 23 LSV has plenty of room for passengers to spread out in the luxurious wraparound lounge, but this mid-size hull is still very manageable for mid-size tow vehicles. Malibu’s Wake Plus™ Hull creates pro-level wakes and waves with 23 feet of running surface, but the 23 LSV is still as nimble and maneuverable as they come.

Versatility is a theme for the 23 LSV. Buyers are able to choose between two unique running surfaces. The Wake Plus Hull is specifically for wakeboarding and wakesurfing while the Malibu Diamond Hull™ is for families who like to mix skiing into their watersports experience.

Continuing with versatility, the 23 LSV’s game-changing wake shaping devices can take its wakes and waves from beginner to pro levels with the touch of a button on the primary Malibu Command Center™ 12-inch touch screen. The boat does all the work from factory presets that create ideal settings for riders of various levels. From an evenly weighted ballast setup, Malibu’s legendary Surf Gate™ can create a perfect, ocean-like wave on either side of the boat and can be adjusted while you ride using Malibu’s Surf Band®.

The 23 LSV’s features could go on and on, but as mentioned, that wasn’t the only top honor Malibu received for the 2023 WakeWorld Riders Choice Awards.

2023 Innovation Of The Year

MaxPivot™ Seat

Next up is the MaxPivot seat, a multi-position bench seat that transforms the lounge from an ordinary bench seat to a rear-facing seat to a table. It can even transform into a playpen-style seat that converts the rear lounge into a padded sun bed. Owners love the MaxPivot seat for not only its versatility but also its convenience. Built with an optional filler cushion to reveal a soft grip padded walkthrough surface, the MaxPivot seat is fully integrated into the lounge for a smooth and convenient operating experience from position to position.

Combining the best of both worlds, the 23 LSV is all new for 2024 featuring an all-new hull design, transom seats, and upgrade options including the MaxPivot Seat, G10+ Tower, and more, making this the best 23 LSV ever created!
