Mastercraft XT20 vs Nautique LS210 vs Malibu MLX


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I am very new to the boating world and am looking for a surf boat. My decision was between the 2018 MLX, 2019 Nautique LS210 and 2019 XT 20. The Nautique and XT are very close in price, the BU comes in a little less expensive given that it is a leftover, however, there is not a certified Malibu dealer local to my area and service is a huge concern. I loved the Malibu look and design but given the fact that the is no certified Malibu service tech in my town I am leaning more toward a Mastercraft or Nautique.


Can anyone offer any insight as to what is a better surf boat?

OP. I’m assuming you asked this question on the boat manufacturer forums as well as a wakesurf forum. If not, you Should do so.


Most guys on this forum are aimed at the most minimal wake possible for skiing, which is a bit different than your goal.


Other option would be to give up the silly surf boat idea and get into skiing! Then, there is plenty of info here....


Good luck.

@Rose33 welcome to BallOfSpray. This form definitely has a waterskiing only bias but if you want good information about the surf boats @theboardingschool is a very good source.
