The Malibu Wakesetter 247 LSV is brand new for 2011, and we outline some of the new features, and what makes this boat such a great wakesurfing platform if you need room for 17 people on the water. For 2011 Malibu Boats put even more stretch into the Wakesetter 247 limousine with room for 17. The Wakestter and Sunscape 247 LSVs have been redesigned inside and out. A new helm offers the driver a performance car look and feel while the new transom seating adds another fun place to hangout with more swimstep accessible wet storage. Get customized for no extra charge choosing between the WetTek floor with snap-out carpet and the Mantex floor with hull-to-hull carpeting. Lined with more hand-covered parts, the new interior features LED-lit stainless emblems and has the ability to accept new optional 8” Rockford Fosgate Full-range speakers. A new MH2 frameless windshield and special fresh air vents work with the new lines of the 247's to create a look as incredible as their performance. Performance that kicks-up monstrous wakes at wakeboarding and wakesurfing speeds, gives you great recreational skiing at slalom speeds and handling that rivals a much smaller water sports boat. By far the best new feature is the transom seating area. Not only is this an awesome place to lounge but the seat lifts revealing a view into the rear locker. This allows a ballast pump to fill and drain a ballast bag without lifting up the heavy engine hatch. Now filling additional surfing ballast is less likely to inconvenience the other passengers in the boat and can be done from the swim platform. The smaller door also draws less attention to the operation of filling extra bags when ballast is frowned upon. The compartment remains about stays the same and will still accommodate the Fly High Fat Sac or Fly High Jumbo V-Drive Surf Sac.
