Pictures of my 2018 Malibu Response TXi

I spent some time breaking in my 2018 Malibu Response TXi (promo boat) over the weekend. Below are a few pictures of the boat which I think turned out great thanks to some help from BOS members.





This boat will be available for purchase in the fall with less than 200 hours on it.

    Any waterski photo with snow in it looks cold. Nice boat!

    Agree @disland, I was skiing powder at Snowbird last Friday and back on the lake water skiing on Saturday, love Utah in the spring!

    Very nice! I've been driving Trish Burt's boat (formerly Regina's) lately and I'm very impressed with the new hull. Great tracking and an unobstructed view out front.

    Like the the CC side saddles and love MC ski racks but where's the ski storage on the Malibu?
    Beautiful boat Scott,congrats!

    @Andre Malibu has the side ski rack option just like the MasterCraft.

    @scotchipman Didn't know that, thanks!
    Did you get one for the driver side and are they as expensive as the MC ones?
  • Chad_ScottChad_Scott Posts: 387 Open or 55K Rated Skier
    @Andre they are available on both sides and NO not as expensive as others.

    Even if you never use it, on a Malibu it just makes sense to boost your resale value.

    My favorite swerve boat. They ski insane and are so well finished.

    Nice boat @OSUwaterskier, I also like your dock bumpers. Where did you buy your dock bumpers?

    Thanks @OscawanaSkier, wish they had them in other colors, looking for grey or black.

    @Brady, I took those pictures on Sunday before the snow came in on Monday/Tuesday morning. Get your dock built and your boat up at Still Water so we can trade sets, @Jody_Seal can help you get ZO on your 197 and it will be sweet or you could always buy the new ProStar :)

    @scotchipman Your making it really hard to not come out to Utah this season to bum a ride behind that great looking boat. I also like red and white boats.
    Not sure I know what I am doing. The boat goes I follow. Trying to perfect the deep water start. Squirrel!

    @colo_skier you better not come over. @scotchipman heard a noise yesterday and so because he is not anal or anything will be pulling the boat from the water and completely disassembling the entire boat down to the hull and has hired a forensic team to come and identify the noise that his boat made. once...not twice, but once. So, I am guessing this will take about 4 months at which time his boat will be back on the water only to moan and groan and beg for mercy after pulling my fat ass!
