The new Response TXR is everything you’ve always wanted. Combining the performance, handling and quality fit and finish you’ve come to expect of Malibu with additional storage, space and contemporary helm design features.  A Malibu classic ski boat has been re-imagined.

Something for everyone

Whether you like your wakes flat for slalom water skiing or clean and rampy for wakeboarding, the Response TXR has just what you need.  From novice to experienced skiers and wakeboarders, there are no limits behind the Response TXR.

A crossover boat the whole family will enjoy, the Response TXR turns on a dime and the plush interior including ‘wall to wall’ carpet, ensures a luxurious, quiet ride.



More storage, more space, more comfort

The interior of the Response TXR has been re-designed to maximise comfort and storage and is packed with practical standard features.

Stowing of gear and accessories is a big part of an enjoyable and safe day on the water. Usable storage is a key feature of the Response TXR. There’s room for competition sized slalom skis behind the observer seat, as well as in the open side pockets, a standard inclusion in every TXR model.  There’s also plenty of room for vests, ropes and other accessories in the rear ski-locker, easily reached through the ever popular bat-winged split lid.

Access to the water level by drivers, observers and passengers has never been better.  A new windscreen design and open side storage pockets makes it easier than ever for those in the boat to reach those in the water.

An exciting addition to this Australian engineered model is the optional rear walk-over console, providing easy entry and exit to the boat. This optional feature helps protect upholstery from wear and tear and features a flip down centre hatch revealing additional storage and two cup holders.


All new helm area

The Response TXR includes an all new helm area designed to maximise driver and observer comfort. The boat is all business at the front, with a fully digital LCD dash display and fingertip operation and cruise control as standard. The shifter panel has been redesigned with improved ergonomics for greater throttle control and comfort. And for those who need it, factory fitted zero off is available.
