Loudon, TN, August 28, 2017 – Offering bow-to-stern comfort, spacious seating and incredible performance, the 2018 Axis T23 watersports towboat is engineered for families who love to spend time together on the water.
The new T23 features innovative styling and numerous cabin optimizations for maximum comfort and convenience. Plus, for the first time ever, Power Wedge II is available for all 2018 Axis boats as part of the exclusive Performance Surf Package (P.S.P.) option.
Handcrafted by Malibu Boats on American soil in Loudon, Tenn., Axis towboats deliver cutting-edge technology and impeccable engineering. The 16-seat, traditional-bow T23 boasts precise handling and agility, along with new soft grip flooring on the deck, swimboard and transom step mats. For 2018, the T23 also has new bungie tower racks and optional PTM clamping board racks.
The roomy T23 cockpit includes strategically-placed dash panels with soft-key switches, brilliant 3-in-1 gauges and an electronic throttle system. And, the standard 6.0 liter Monsoon engine generates 409 ft-lbs. of torque.
For the first time, Power Wedge II is an available option on all 2018 Axis boats as part of the Performance Surf Package, which also includes Surf Gate™ and Surf Band™.
The state-of-the-art Power Wedge II augments the internal ballast system and can instantly add up to 1,500 pounds of additional wave and wake-creating capability.
P.S.P. is a comprehensive system of wake and wave-making technologies that enable customers to adjust the size, length and shape of the wakeboard wake and surf wave for each rider with the touch of a button. While Power Wedge II and Surf Gate offer unprecedented wake and wake-creating capabilities, the Surf Band delivers best-in-class control that now enables riders to manage all surf-related settings, boat speed and even tower speaker volume while on the water.
“By adding Power Wedge II to the Performance Surf Package, we’ve made the T23 an ideal boat for families with riders of all skill levels,” said Eric Bondy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Axis Wake Research and Malibu Boats. “With custom wave creation at the push of a button, abundant cabin enhancements and room for up to 16 passengers, the Axis T23 is the complete family watersports boat.”
