Riders Vote Malibu Boat of the Year

Malibu Boats (@MalibuBoats) Wakesetter VLX was voted Riders Choice Boat of the Year on

The Wakesetter VLX is no stranger to Boat of the Year Awards and Malibu Boats has received a number of other big awards lately, but this latest honor holds some special significance for the world’s #1 selling water sports boat manufacturer. The Riders Choice Award was voted on by the people who use Malibu wakeboard boats. This is why the VLX earned Rider’s Choice Boat of the Year on Malibu’s brand of performance, comfort and style built in to this year’s Wakesetter VLX turned out to be all the “get out the vote” effort needed.

The 10th annual WakeWorld Riders Choice Awards presented by CWB Board Co. was the biggest ever. For the 10th consecutive year WakeWorld gave riders the opportunity to share their opinions on Pro Riders and wake sport products. Participants visited and cast their votes during the entire month of August. In addition to the Malibu’s Illusion G3 Wakeboard Tower being voted Innovation of the Year, the Wakesetter VLX earned top honors as the Riders Choice Boat of the Year.

After 19 PowerBoat Magazine Boat of the Year Awards you’d think earning an honor like Riders Choice Boat of the Year would be no big deal. Malibu Boats doesn’t think so. They see this latest award as another step up in the steady climb they have been on. After winning Manufacturer of the Year and a number of other industry awards earlier this month as well as having the Illusion G3 voted Riders Choice Innovation of the Year, Malibu Boat has a lot momentum heading into the Fall season.

When asked about the Wakesetter VLX being voted Riders Choice Boat of the Year, Paul Singer, VP of Sales and Marketing for Malibu Boats, had this to say. “Even though this award comes along with several other big honors we’ve recently received, I can’t tell you how much it means to us! Being voted the best by end users is huge!”
