As for that wake, how does Malibu do it? The M235 is by far the deepest, heaviest boat Malibu has ever built. A bigger boat with higher freeboard means a heavier dry weight, more and safer seating, deeper stowage and, of course, more ballast capacity. With the Integrated Surf Platform, you get the Surf Gate vertical tab system, which is one of the best out there. You can surf one side or the other without moving any weight. With the Surf Band on your wrist, you can adjust the tabs and switch from side to side while you’re riding. The Surf Band also controls the boat’s speed and the Power Wedge II, which can tweak the wave face while you’re riding so you get exactly what you want.
