UNMATCHED VERSATILITY. The 2018 20 VTX is the world’s #1 crossover towboat, delivering optimum wake board wakes, surf waves and world-class slalom flats. It’s an ideal family boat that seats up to 11 people, trailers with ease and can be stored in most garages. This traditional-bow powerhouse is the only towboat in the crossover class with a centre-pull ski pylon, and it’s three-event certified for tournament skiing. Malibu’s T-Cut Diamond Multi sport Hull—backed by a lifetime warranty—creates agile handling and precision tracking, while the standard Hard Tank Ballast System delivers impressive wake-making capabilities. The 20 VTX is loaded with luxury and technology, including plush, hand-sewn seating, walk through design, soft grip flooring, the Viper II Command Centre with 12-inch touchscreen, Zero Off GPS system and the G3.5 Tower. Add the optional Integrated Surf Platform™ with Power Wedge II™, Surf Gate™ and Surf Band™ to easily customise the size, length and shape of wakes and surf waves for every rider.
