If you’ve priced professional-grade wakeboard boats, you know they come with professional-grade prices. Malibu, which has an impeccable reputation in this genre of boats, brought one of its premium Wakesetter models to a broader budget range by turning it over to the vRide model line. Now known as the 21 vRide, the boat comes with a load of high-end riding features that run counter to the idea of an “entry-level” buy: the Illusion X wakeboard tower, 400-pound in-floor ballast system and Precision Pro Speed Control. It all rides on the same hull that has pulled world-class tournaments and has made Malibu the brand of choice for so many of the nation’s top wakeboarders.
