Loudon, TN | December 7, 2016 – The International Waterski and Wakeboard Tournament Council announced yesterday that Malibu Boats team athlete Regina Jaquess’ world record has been approved. The record was achieved behind Malibu’s all-new Response TXi in its second tournament appearance on November 5, where Regina ran three and a half buoys at 41’ off.
The Response TXi had its second debut at the Isles Junior Invitational tournament at the Isles of Lake Hancock Ski Club in Winter Garden, FL. The original Malibu TXi led the industry as the world’s premier ski boat, with skiers setting 10 world records behind it. The new, second-generation TXi, however, is the sport’s next legend. Skiers looking to set new personal bests will benefit from the new TXi’s utter performance, flat wakes and consistent pull.
“I am very excited about the approval of the new world record behind Malibu’s TXi,” Regina Jaquess said after finding out about the status of her world record. “From day one, I knew the new TXi would allow me to push the limits. Without any interruption from the wakes, the TXi allowed me to continue to gain cross course direction when approaching each buoy. I’m super excited about this boat and the future it brings to the sport.”
Malibu redesigned the T-cut Diamond hull with a wider bow, adjusted chines and angled strakes. The new and slightly larger TXi gives a better ride on the water with increased lift and a more forgiving wake while maintaining its stellar performance and laser-like tracking abilities.
“When you combine an outstanding, world-class athlete with a superbly designed boat, records can be expected to fall,” said Malibu CEO Jack Springer. “I want to congratulate Regina and say how proud we are to have her as part of the Malibu team. I look forward to many more world records behind the all-new TXi in the future.”
