The Response LXi stays true to Malibu’s roots as a big-idea ski-boat maker. This model makes the most of evolutionary designs to take its place alongside the absolutely best slalom boats on the planet. We aren’t just saying that. In 2005, pro skier Chris Parrish was behind a Response LXi when he first broke the world slalom record, which had stood for eight years, scoring 1 1/4 at 43 off.
Most amazing, though, is that this ski boat can offer such world-class performance and still be roomy enough for a family to climb aboard. The open bow offers seating for your kids, as does the rear bench for those times when you’re cruising rather than setting yet another personal best in the slalom course.
