Malibu Improves SurfGate For 2014

Posted on February 5th, 2014 by | posted in Boats, Industry Press Releases


“Innovation Of The Year” for 2014 has been improved for 2014. The actuator ram that drives the gate has been given more power and speed. The side to side transfer has been reduced from 3 seconds to 1.5. Timing the transfer was the most difficult part until Malibu added a horn on the transom with a series of beeps to keep you notified. Because competitors came out swinging with a more refined product visually, Malibu stepped up with a finished off stainless steel overlay on the gate plate. Surfgates do not work without ballast. Remember that they do not increase the displacement of the hull. They only redirect the flow of water from the opposite side. Buy the biggest Malibu Plug and Play Ballast Bags you can find.
