What should I look for in a wakeboat?
In the market today exist many makes & models of watersports boats that many people own & love. But how can you ensure you make the right choice for you and your family? It’s important to know and understand the unique features that each make offers to ensure you’re getting the right boat for the money. First & foremost, ballast tanks & bags are key. If you’re looking to advance in watersports, you need a bigger wake/wave and there’s no better way to do that than with more weight. You’ll also want to ensure the boat has a flexible ballast setup for different riding preferences and sports so you can shift weight around accordingly. I will guess that if you’re looking for a wake boat, you’re probably wanting to wake surf. If this is you and you’re buying new, you’ll want to ensure the boat in question has a dedicated surf system. You’ll also want to ensure this system is proven to be effective at creating enjoyable surf waves and that it doesn’t effect your ability to safely maneuver the boat. Surf Gate
, a unique Malibu Boats patent and the first dedicated surf system to hit the market, allows you to wakesurf with the push of a button without leaning the boat from side-to-side. This also allows for a bigger wave because you’re not sacrificing any ballast weight to create lean on your desired surf side.
Another key feature to look for in a wakeboat is a wake/wave shaping system so you can customize the shape, size and feel of your wave to match your preference. With Malibu & Axis, the Power Wedge does this and so much more. Use the wedge to select 7 different positions to alter the shape of your wave but also just having it deployed accounts for about 1,500 lbs of additional ballast. To boot, the wedge even has a “lift” feature that helps the boat get on plane faster when full of weight & ballast without straining the engine or using a ton of fuel.
