Any ballers with the corvette Malibu?

I remember seeing this boat in the early 2000's. Would love to see some recent photos if you have that boat. Thx!

    Thanks for the video, interesting that they made both a vdrive and a direct drive?

    There is one in Kelowna BC. I know this is true because I saw it myself in a heated storage facility. Rumor is that the boat has never seen water after being sold by the dealer. Owner is sitting on it thinking it will be worth big money one day.

    I believe I saw one on FB a while back. Think it was for sale. Don't remember any other details.

    We have one on our lake
    Never see any one doing any water sports behind it.
    They just Cruze around with the tunes cranked being annoying.
    I think that’s about all that boat is good for.

    I have seen both the original C4 one in DD form and the newer C6 V drive on shuswap lake. They are all made on the cut diamond/sv23 hull (ski hull) so should be ok for skiing. I would think the older DD would be the best. The newer V drive obviously not as good.

    I’ve seen one in the course on Little Ossippee in waterboro Maine. Beautiful boat. If I see it again I’ll get a pic.

    Maybe it is just me, but that boat in the YouTube video is way uglier than the new Ski Nautique.

    There was an article about it I read about a month ago...the gist of it was...WAIT...YOU ACTUALLY TOOK THIS ON THE WATER?!?! It is REALLY not meant to go IN the water!

    I never saw the appeal in those boats. I've seen a handful in person, and they look just as dopey as in pictures. Historical nugget is MC was presented with the idea first and passed on it.

    Yeah dopey and owners will think they should command big money.

    If you get an original one it's on the non diamond hull and had the Callaway supernatural engine. Guy on my lake has one and it's a legit upper 50s mph boat. Pulled Footstock several times. It flies.

    The V drive version I never really dug. It's a novelty whereas the DD was very much a nice ski boat.
    boats are like girlfriends you love them however there is another one around the corner - bananaron, July 21, 2020

    There's one on our lake and it just sits on the lift. Never covered, just sort of rotting away. As a Vette owner, it makes me sad.
