The all-new 2020 A20 gives you more value, performance and style than ever before. A breeze to trailer and garage, the A20 is as nimble getting to the water as it is on it. With every control at your fingertips, you can transform the A20 into a wake-making powerhouse with Surf Gate, Power Wedge III, Plug ‘n’ Play ballast and our exclusive Surf Band. With seating for 11 and the available P.S.P., the A20 hangs with the big boats on all the tools to make a great swell in a boat that fits in standard garages.
01. WAKE PLUS HULL
The PSP starts with the Wake Plus hull design engineered for each Axis model, with wave generating running surfaces and customised swim platforms. For a bigger wake, push a button to fill the Hard-Tank Ballast system and add up to 450kg of wake-creating ballast. Get the fore and aft Plug ’n’ Play ballast option to add up to another 800kg.
02. POWER WEDGE III
For the first time, all Axis models offer the Power Wedge III as an option. Now, just push a button to adjust the wake with ease and instantly gain another 680kg of wake-generating water displacement control that competitors can’t match. Engage Surf Gate to turn that wake into an endless, customisable wave for surfing.
03. SURF GATE
Surf Gate’s high-speed hydraulic actuators let you quickly shift the wave from side to side for regular or goofy foot styles. With the PSP and Surf Gate™, the driver can dial in the wakes and waves to make the perfect watersports playground for any rider, every time.
04. SURF BAND
Now including the Power Wedge III control option, we’ve made the Malibu Surf Band™ wrist remote available for all Axis boats. Wearing the Surf Band, the rider can control the Surf Gate™, speed and stereo volume right from the board.
05. NEW DASH
The striking new dash design with glowing white 3-in-1 gauges gives the cockpit a classic sporty look. There’s more function with a new central touch screen that integrates menu navigation, Surf Gate™ controls, speed control and more. A new panel of soft-key switches puts controls at the driver’s fingertips, and new helm and transom remotes for the audio system let the driver or passengers adjust the music.
Award-Winning Performance, Unmatched Reliability
The new Malibu Monsoon line of engines, the M5Di and M6Di, were developed by Malibu to offer unmatched performance, fuel economy, reliability and sound reduction.
Malibu was able to accomplish this feat by bringing engine production in-house. The engine experts at Malibu worked with industry leaders like GM® Marine, Roush®, Davinci®, and McLaren Engineering® to design and perform the research and development necessary to introduce a line of in-board engines to the towboat industry like no other.
The new M5Di and M6Di direct injection engines are only available in a Malibu. Contact your local dealer to experience the next generation of power today.
Reliability was the key focus when designing the new Malibu Monsoon direct injection engines, with engines subject to over 5000 hours of rigorous testing before production started. The world first F.E.A.D. (Front End Accessory Drive) system is at the core of the new design’s reliability – it makes everything in the engine simpler, eliminating failure points and using glycol for cooling so that critical engine components are not compromised by raw water exposure. The Malibu Monsoon engines are exclusive to Malibu and built from the ground up in our new start of the art facility at Malibu Boats USA.
It’s not how fast you can pull a rider or skier (that’s horse power), it’s about getting the rider out of the hole quickly and consistently with a boat full of ballast and friends – and that is all about torque curve. This has been the driving factor behind the Malibu Monsoon direct injection engines. M5Di and M6Di are tailor made by Malibu for water sports – meaning maximum power is delivered early in the torque curve to give you a boat that never bogs down. The Monsoon’s custom tailored gear ratios act as torque multipliers to deliver even more power when you need it.
Malibu’s new line of Monsoon Engines is so quiet, you can have a conversation when running full speed down the lake. Higher compression of Malibu’s direct injection engines, along with acoustic foam and cast iron manifolds that wrap around the cylinder heads all combine to make the quietest engine the tow boat industry has ever heard.
CLEAN & GREEN
Malibu Monsoon engines are also the greenest engines the tow boat industry has ever seen. They don’t just meet CARB (California Air Resources Board) five star emission standards, they exceed them. The engines are certified 5 star ultraclean with 50% lower emissions than 4 star ratings on other tow boats. The lowest emissions in the tow boat industry and best in class fuel economy is made possible thanks to direct injection technology. The drive train has been tuned to give the most power at the lowest RPMs – exactly what you need for water sports. Best in class fuel efficiency and the lowest emissions in the industry are only available on Malibu and Axis.
