Malibu provided the perfect luxury/performance companion in the 3,500-pound Wakesetter 21 VLX. Besides three Monsoon V-8 options up to 555 supercharged ponies, the VLX also packs an impressive suite of electronics, including Malibu Touch Command (MTC) computerized presets for the Power Wedge, ballast tanks and Surf Gate that make toggling between specialty wakes easy. It also seats 14 people, has an onboard heater and boasts a Rockford sound system that’ll blow you overboard. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price on our 350 hp version, including a tandem-axle Boatmate trailer, was $110,072, bringing the Porsche/Malibu total to $278,297. Clearly, our luxury test tow package represents hedge-fund-profits territory.
