Often forgotten but equally important, additional weight in the bow of your boat is a vital part of the total equation for improving your wake. Following up on the tremendous success of our exclusive UniversalFIT Rear Locker Ballast Bags, and based on feedback from customers, we are excited to release a new line of UniversalFIT bags designed specifically to fit underneath the bow seats.
Our UniversalFIT Bow Bags made a huge splash within the industry due to their innovative design. Rather than using one ballast bag, our ballast solution for the bow of your boat is offered in a unique two bag configuration (sold as a pair). This allows for a better fit under seats in boats when the bow storage does not communicate all the way around the bow of the boat. Since the bags are hidden underneath the bow seats, it keeps your boat looking clean and still allows passengers to sit up in the bow of the boat. The bags can be plumbed to fill/drain together or separately.
Our team of product designers and engineers at WakeMAKERS agreed that a ‘one-size fits all’ approach that other brands are taking isn’t good enough. Seeking a better ballast solution than standard sized bags, we developed our series of UniversalFIT ballast bags, designed for specific zones of your boat and offered in incremental sizes to give you better fitment and improved wake performance.
Available in a range of sizes, the UniversalFIT bow bags allow you to choose the dimensions that best fit underneath your bow seats. The result is a much better fitting bag, allowing you to fill to capacity and maximize added weight for the best possible wake. WakeMAKERS UniversalFIT ballast bags give you a nearly perfect fit without the expense of building a custom bag.
Not the ideal size and shape for your boat? For boats with continuous underseat storage often found in boats with a traditional V-Shape bow, check out our WakeMAKERS UniversalFIT V-Shape Bow Ballast Bag.
All WakeMAKERS ballast bags come standard with an industry-leading two year warranty. The bags are constructed using DuraTEK, our proprietary material that is strong, durable, and puncture-resistant. Once the material is cut, the bags are welded together with 1″ seams to ensure a clean look and watertight seal. There are four of our unique DryLOK 1″ ports on each ballast bag. These ports feature a tapered thread pattern and bottom o-ring for a leak-free seal. The larger port size allows water to flow quicker for faster fill/drain times.
If you are shopping for a ballast bag to be used in the bow of your boat, the WakeMAKERS UniversalFIT ballast bags are a no-brainer decision. From the quality craftsmanship to the innovative design, these ballast bags are built to deliver improved wakes behind your boat.
NO FITTINGS OR PLUGS INCLUDED WITH BAG
This allows you to fully customize the bag(s) based on your application. There are eight ports total (four on each bow bag) so make sure to order a total of eight 1” fittings and/or plugs.
Note: Listed capacity is the combined weight of both bags, not each individual bag.

WakeMAKERS UniversalFIT Series
WakeMAKERS UniversalFIT Series ballast bags are offered in incremental length, width, and height dimensions to make a bag that better fits underneath your boat’s bow seats. While most other bow bags sit on top of the seats or have one standard size for an under seats style, the WakeMAKERS UniversalFIT Series has over five sizes ranging from 250 to 750 lbs. to deliver a better fitting ballast bag specifically designed to go underneath your bow seats. The UniversalFIT Series ballast bags allows you to achieve a nearly custom fit without the spendy price tag of a custom ballast bag.
