Designed for 2012 and newer Malibu boats without the factory Plug N Play option. Integrates WakeMAKERS FIT series ballast bags above the existing factory hard tanks to increase the overall capacity for an improved wake.
WakeMAKERS exclusive Factory Ballast Upgrade Kits are built and designed to unleash your Malibu's full potential. It takes more than the factory ballast in your Malibu to achieve the wake you've always desired. After all, a better wake is proven to make for a more enjoyable wakesurfing and wakeboarding experience.
Our aftermarket ballast solutions increase the overall capacity of your Malibu boat's factory ballast system for improved performance while keeping the convenience of controlling all ballast with the switches at your dash. The ballast bags included in your Factory Ballast Upgrade are integrated into your boat's existing ballast system for automated filling/draining.
This upgrade kit 'piggybacks' provided ballast bags that are placed in the rear lockers to the factory hard tanks below. Drastically increasing the overall capacity of the ballast system in your Malibu will help to further displace the boat's hull in the water and make a more sizeable wake.
Please check the size of the hoses in your Malibu before ordering. Early 2012 production Malibu boats still used 3/4" hose, and will require our 2005-2011 Malibu PiggyBack Rear Factory Upgrade. If you have any questions about determining the correct application for your boat, please contact us.
Now an updated version, the Malibu PiggyBack Factory Ballast Upgrade has been completely re-engineered by the WakeMAKERS ballast experts for more efficient flow of water (faster fill times) and an easier installation process.
Every WakeMAKERS Factory Ballast Upgrade is designed to be a user-friendly DIY install that can be completed in your garage over the course of an afternoon. Don't want to do a self-install and would rather take your boat to a professional? These upgrades can be completed by your local WakeMAKERS certified boat service center.
What's Included: Each WakeMAKERS Factory Ballast Upgrade includes the best fitting ballast bag(s) for your year, make, and model boat along with all the needed ballast hose and hardware to integrate into your boat's factory ballast system.
If you already have Fly High or Straight Line ballast bags and are buying the hardware kit only to integrate them, make sure to buy one for each side.
