General Details

This is a boat for people who like water sports. When you pull up in a Sunsetter VLX, everyone looks in envy because they know the performance and they see the luxury..

This vessel has the diamond hull which provides provides better top-end speed, handling, slalom wakes and with the Power Wedge it enables the intermediate to advanced rider to be totally satisfied. This is a great boat. It performs well and looks great. You get plush, wraparound seating, a swivel seat, new dash, optional headlights and dual tracking fins. Most V-drives don't have tracking fins because they are not about performance. Malibu's have them because we want this boat to track well and not roll up on its side when turning. It's unusual to have all the performance components in this boat that we do, like servo gauges, rack-and-pinion steering and zero-friction throttle cables, but this is no ordinary craft.

The fact of the matter is that Malibus are overbuilt, period. They all have multiple layers of woven rovings and cloth supported with ceramic cores in areas that need thickness. Malibu is the most progressive boat manufacturer as far as laminations and gelcoats are concerned. The way we lay the boat up is important, but even more so is the way our boats are put together. That?s what really makes the construction. The hull and deck are put together with Plexus fusion adhesives, which chemically and molecularly create a stronger bond than the fiberglass itself. Along with ourselves, many of the respected builders like Baja, Cobalt and Formula are using this. We?re using it because it?s been proven in offshore applications. One of the most important aspects about the construction is that our hulls and decks are blueprinted, so they fit exactly on top of each other. You don?t have the big, giant gaps you see in other boats, where manufacturers grab a deck and a hull and slap them together. We have strict tolerances on the hull and deck built together.


The VLX is a great recreational slalom boat that is big and roomy in the cockpit area and can handle up to eleven passengers and their equipment. Wakes are a bit softer at speeds of 32 mph and below and will be well received by beginning skiers. This boat skis far better than your average V-Drive.


With no ballast system, no tower and a plush, and its Cadillac-like interior, you don't expect this to toss up a great wake. But it does. Without any weighting or the Wedge, this is a good intermediate wake that's clean, solid and fun. Flip the Wedge down and you have the trademark peaky, spinner-friendly wake the Wedge is known for. With ballast, you boost the Sunsetter into the stratospheric range. This is as versatile a wake as a boat can make. This vessel just needs the sacks (it is wired and has the pumps.

Malibu pursues water-sports excellence with this boat. It runs on the SV 23 Diamond Hull, the same hull that carries the Response to world records. If you find it comforting having a boat that is extremely fast, exceptionally classy, yet capable of outstanding wakeboarding and solid slalom performance, the Sunsetter VLX is the obvious choice.
