We received a 7th consecutive Boat of the Year Award from PowerBoat Magazine last night in LA. The award winners were selected after the magazine's rigorous Performance Trials in Parker, AZ, Sarasota, FL, and San Diego, CA. More than 40 performance boats were evaluated independently by two teams.
This year’s PowerBoat Magazine Boat of the Year award was granted to Malibu Boats for the new 2008 Wakesetter 23 LSV. Check out the Flickr gallery for this boat and you'll see why we won.
This honor makes Malibu the only boat company in the history of PowerBoat Magazine to have earned a seventh Boat of the Year award in as many years. Dan Gasper, Director of Research ad Development, accepted the award for us during PowerBoat Mag's Product Excellence Celebration in LA.
Since its inception, the pride Malibu has taken in its products has netted recognition throughout the industry. The company has accumulated 18 Boat of the Year Awards and 25 Product Excellence awards. Yet, the restless spirit and motivation for perfection never stops.
