Some MALIBU Boat Owner's Manuals PDF are above the page.
In 1982, Bob Alkema and Steve Marshal, with the help of friends, founded a small shipyard in Merced, California. Initially, friends relied on towing boats and did not lose.
Malibu Boats almost immediately began to receive 2-3 orders a week. By 1984, the company was firmly on its feet and fulfilled up to 8 orders a week.
A second plant in Tennessee was opened in 1989, and by the end of the year, Malibu Boats launched more than 1,200 boats, winning Powerboat Magazine Award for superior product quality.
A year later, the company acquired the Australian shipbuilding company Flightcraft.
By 2002, Malibu Boats had become one of the world's largest manufacturers of sports towing vehicles.
In 2006, the owner of the shipyard became its main investor, Black Canyon Capital. Although many yacht companies closed during the recession of the late 2000s, Malibu Boats, on the contrary, was gaining market share.
In 2009, Malibu Boats launched the Axis Wake brand and also relocated its headquarters to Loudon, Tennessee.
