Ballast and Wake Management
The Wakesetter 25 LSV has a design that produces the largest; most consistent wakes in all water conditions. The boat’s hull features a design focusing on water displacement to the vessel’s rear. The result is a sizeable wake that’s ideal for wakesports.
If you want to adjust the size of the wake, you have a trio of molded ballast tanks in the subfloor of the hull, adding an additional 2,070-lbs of weight without compromising on storage space. There’s an optional subfloor ballast tank available for this model, with the “Power Wedge III” bringing an additional 1,500-lbs of weight through the plug-and-play bags in the aft of the vessel.
As a result, you get an additional 5,140-lbs of displacement weight available from the hull for the largest, gnarliest wakes. If you’re a professional wakeboarder or an advanced wakesports enthusiast, you won’t find another boat offering you this kind of displacement and wake production.
This model comes with “stern turn” technology, allowing you to keep your hand firmly on the throttle for easy maneuvering into the slip or for faster turns when collecting riders. The water-cooled stern thruster offers extended use without burning out the jets, and the fully-integrated design leaves you with plenty of storage space.
The Power Wedge II ballast system allows positioning at various angles, giving you complete control over wake production. Dial-in your wake length and height and store your settings in the onboard memory for easy reference. You have options for creating all sizes of wakes to suit the rider’s experience and skill level.
If you’re into wakesurfing, the Wakesetter comes with an optional surf gate, adding vertical tabs which deploy from the transom, diverting the water planning off the hull to customize the wake shape and size to your rider requirements.
The Wakesetter 25 LSV is the top choice for watersports enthusiasts and wakesports professionals. You get a choice of two wake tower options to suit your needs and your budget.
The standard GX Tower from Malibu offers riders a new standard of quality and innovation. You get complete electronic control of raising and lowering the tower, with total transition times of nine seconds for opening and closing.
If you want to keep you and your guests cool on the hottest days out on the water, you can opt for the GX Tower mister configuration, spraying cool mist into the air to bring down the temperature.
You have the option of upgrading to the G5 wake tower, with a new latch design and Tower-and-Anchor LED lighting, featuring RGB functionality. The G5 comes with two side tow points for towing two riders.
The G5 and the GX wake towers come with aerospace-grade anodized aluminum board racks offering you swiveling functionality for your gear. Latch your boards into place with a slight tug on the lever.
The Malibu Wakesetter 25 LSV has one of the most impressive interiors in its class, with enough space for 18-passengers. The cockpit and controls are intuitive and easy to manage through the touchscreen command center at the boat’s helm.
The screen comes with a graphic interface, allowing you to dial in your settings with a few simple taps. The Wakesetter comes with a unique surfers wristband, allowing for the remote setting of the ballast and tabs as you surf, adjusting everything on the go – it’s a completely unique feature we don’t see on other similar models from leading manufacturers.
The seating is plush and luxurious, with rear loungers featuring extendable leg and back and leg rests for an elegant and comfortable time out on the water for your passengers. You can customize the settings for each seat, giving your guests independent control over their seating position. It’s the best way to enjoy pulling up to that sandbar or cove for an afternoon of lazing in the sun.
The Wakesetter 25 LSV comes with an option for an extended awning and full-length Bimini sunshade to keep you out of the midday heat in blazing hot temperatures. The canopy attaches to the Bimini in seconds, covering the vessel’s entire length.
You get a sun pad in the boat’s aft, which substitutes for benching so riders can gear up before hitting the water. The rear lockers under the seats allow for wet/dry storage of life jackets, wetsuits, and other gear.
We love the new Powered Swim Step, a considerable upgrade over the old Flip-Down Swim Step, offering you easy access to the water. You also have an option for push-button activation of the steps for convenience.
The steps and flooring in the cockpit and stern feature coating with Gator Grip flooring. You get a non-slip surface for wet conditions, allowing for easy walking through from the cockpit to the transom, without the need to climb over seats. This model comes with docking cameras, allowing you to keep a close eye on the sides of the boat when pulling into slips.
The stern camera mounted in the transom features 1080p resolution, and you have options for recording. Capture all the exciting moments of your riders performing aerials over the wake in crystal-clear video clarity. Save the videos directly to your phone using the integrated app.
The Malibu Wakesetter 25 LSV comes with a Monsoon M6Di motor offering 430-HP and all the power you need for professional watersports.
The 430-HP motor produces a staggering 460-lbs of torque and inboard configuration at the stern. You get the best wake production, with total control over the size and shape of the wake to suit your rider’s requirements.
