2004 Malibu Sportster LX w/ Swoop Wake Board Tower
This entry level inboard made its debut in 1999 and features some of the best slalom, acceleration and top speed scores of any boat at any price. In comparison to its closed bow brother the open bow Sportster LX offers room for two more passengers. In contrast to the majority of open bow conversions, the LX weighs the same and skis the same as its closed bow sibling and even offers the same two person observer's bench behind a full width windshield.
Both Sportsters share another important feature with other Malibu models: They are built to the same industry leading standards, employing all of the proprietary technologies, premium materials and award winning innovations Malibu lavishes on its premium models. The LX has proved to be one of the best slalom boats available at any price point. It also draws high marks from bare footers and boasts impressive performance with a sub six second acceleration run and a top speed near 50 mph. With Malibu's patented Wedge deployed, the LX is also perfect for wake boarders. This particular example has been pampered since new and shows exceptionally well. It currently has 540 hours, it has always been serviced annually and everything is in perfect working order. It has been upgraded with a Swoop wakeboard tower and also comes with a wakeboard rack. If you want to impress your passengers without breaking the bank this is the perfect choice as it’s one of the best ski boats on the market. These boats do not come available for sale very often so if you know what you are looking at you better not wait until spring to call!
