AUSTRALIAN FACTORY

813 Hope Court, Albury, NSW, 2640
 

The Australian Malibu/Axis factory is located in Albury NSW, conveniently positioned between Sydney and Melbourne.

What does having a factory located in Australia mean for Australian ski and wakeboard boat owners? The simple answer is … everything.Our dealers have a direct line to the Australian factory which means they can work quickly to address any issues that might crop up before, during or after the production of your boat.

And because your Malibu or Axis boat is entirely handcrafted in Australia, every single part needed to make the boat is available from our Australian warehouse.  Replacement parts are usually available at your dealer within days, so we can get you back on the water ASAP. And not just current year boats.  Our massive factory warehouse stores parts for current and recent model years, as well as stock of high demand parts for models dating back to 1995. So, when you buy a Malibu or Axis, you’re supported across the life of your boat ownership.

METICULOUS HAND-CRAFTSMANSHIP

Every new Malibu or Axis boat sold in Australia and New Zealand is meticulously handcrafted by highly trained local technicians.

From spraying the outer gelcoat to laminating layer upon layer of fiberglass to installing and polishing interior and exterior hardware to hand-stitching and fitting the upholstery, a dedicated team of exceptional Australian boat-builders crafts every Malibu – by hand.

We conduct detailed quality control inspections after evert step in the production line, and we lake-test all boats at Lake Hume, just a few minutes from the Albury factory.  Our goal is to ensure that your Malibu or Axis boat leaves the factory in as perfect condition as human hands can produce.

THE AUSTRALIAN STORY

Malibu Boats Pty Ltd, has been building premium quality American designed ski boats in Australia since 1995.

Driven by the desire to produce something of much higher quality and performance than was available at the time, Xavier West, approached Malibu in the USA about his ambitious dream. A meeting with Malibu President Robert Alkema was arranged in California and shortly thereafter, an agreement was reached to build their boats in Australia.

West wanted to build the best boats in the country, and provide water ski enthusiast with new, state of the art, modern designs that were of a much higher quality than anything else available. This has proven to be a master stroke as Malibu leads the industry with the creation of new and innovative designs like our V25 Wake and Cut Diamond hulls, our Frameless Vented Windscreen and the patented Power Wedge which have helped make Malibu Boats the most popular and desirable family tow boats in Australia today.

Today, Malibu Boats Australia Pty Ltd employs over 60 regional Australians and is a proud contributor to the Australian manufacturing industry.
