This WakeMAKERS exclusive TankBuster Factory Ballast Upgrade removes the existing factory hard tanks with bigger, better fitting WakeMAKERS FIT Series ballast bags to drastically improve the size of your wake.
WakeMAKERS exclusive Factory Ballast Upgrade Kits are built and designed to unleash your boat’s full potential. It takes more than stock ballast to achieve the wake you’ve always desired. A better wake is proven to make for a more enjoyable wakesurfing and wakeboarding experience.
Our aftermarket ballast solutions increase the overall capacity of your boat’s factory ballast system for improved performance while keeping the convenience of controlling all ballast with the switches at your dash. The ballast bags included in your Factory Ballast Upgrade are integrated into your boat’s existing ballast system for automated filling/draining.
The factory hard tanks in these Malibu boats take up valuable space in the rear lockers and don’t hold enough weight to create the wake you desire. They are inefficient in that even when these tanks are empty, they take up all that space in your rear lockers. Our TankBuster Factory Ballast Upgrade solves this issue by removing the hard tanks in your Malibu and integrating WakeMAKERS FIT Series bags into your boat’s factory ballast system. This solution takes up far less space when the ballast is empty, making far more available storage space in your rear lockers for gear, towels, etc.
Designed to directly integrate the provided WakeMAKERS ballast bags into your Malibu’s factory ballast system, you still get to enjoy the convenience and ease of use with automated fill/drain processes. You will use the same ballast switches at your dash to fill and drain the new ballast bags. Adding an additional few hundred lbs of ballast capacity in the rear lockers will create sizeable improvement in your Malibu’s wake.
Every WakeMAKERS Factory Ballast Upgrade is designed to be a user-friendly DIY install that can be completed in your garage over the course of an afternoon. Don’t want to do a self-install and would rather take your boat to a professional? These upgrades can be completed by your local WakeMAKERS certified boat service center.
Each WakeMAKERS Factory Ballast Upgrade includes the best fitting ballast bag(s) for your year, make, and model boat along with all the needed ballast hose and hardware to integrate into your boat’s factory ballast system.
