Axis Wake Research announces the latest version of the A22 towboat


Loudon, TN | August 09, 2018 – Axis Wake Research™ is proud to announce the latest version of the A22, the high-quality, value-driven, performance watersports towboat for 2019. The boat that started it all for Axis, the A22 is one of the best sellers and the first model ever released. Redesigned for 2019 with a fresh look inside and out, the A22 hits the sweet spot of size to make a big wake without a big footprint. Great for families who want big wake performance and plenty of no-frills features without getting into a huge boat.

All Thriller, No Filler

The latest and greatest A22 comfortably seats 15 people and remains easy to tow and store in the garage. The A22 comes complete with a spacious pickle-fork bow, innovative Wake Plus™ hull, upgraded stereo, new Surf Gate™ design, new sliding Axis Skybox seat™ with an optional backrest, and a redesigned helm seat to give the driver the ability to easily interact with the flow of activity from bow to stern. 

Deck this boat out with the optional Axis Performance Surf Package™ (P.S.P.), which includes the all-new Power Wedge™ III, Surf Gate with the industry-leading Surf Band™, and Triple Hard Tank™ ballast. This 22-footer delivers incredible and ultimately customizable waves and wakes for riders of every ability level. 

Improved for 2019, Power Wedge III is our patented hydrofoil that offers full adjustability and versatility for riders of all levels. Power Wedge III allows the driver to instantly change the shape and size of the wake at the touch of a button. Fully adjustable positions can make your wake huge for advance riders or smaller for the beginners, and with more positions for 2019, Power Wedge III is more effective than ever. When it’s time to get on plane, Power Wedge III automatically saves gas by moving the Wedge into lift mode, getting the boat on top of the water faster than ever before with five more degrees of lift for 2019. 

The original and still the best, Surf Gate generates a huge surf wave on either side of the boat with the touch of a button and without moving any weight. While surfing one side of the wave, the rider can switch Surf Gate to the other side in three seconds with one touch of Surf Band. This industry game-changer allows for effortless transfers from side to side with no miscommunications. Combine the hard-tank ballast with the optional Plug ‘n’ Play Ballast System—which adds up to 1,500 pounds of ballast in the rear storage lockers—and up to 450 pounds of ballast in the bow to create a fully customizable wake or wave for every kind of rider. 

With an Axis, you will never have to worry about not keeping up. The A22 Livorsi electronic throttle knows how to throw the pedal to the metal; perfect for cruising around the lake or pulling up a rider in no time with a smooth throw from neutral to wide open. 

Luxurious comfort follows the A22’s outstanding performance. Available Soft Grip flooring enhances the comfort and function in the cabin and the helm. Spruce up the helm even further with the new phone holder for easy access to capture some soon-to-be viral videos of the riders.

“The all-new 2019 Axis A22 is the perfect boat for family and friends to enjoy in an eye- catching package. The quality matched with the advanced, new technology was perfectly crafted for everyone to have an unforgettable time of the water,” said Eric Bondy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Axis Wake Research and Malibu Boats.

You can make your 2019 Axis 100% you with customization options of 27 eye-catching gel coat choices, five different stereo packages, and two additional vinyl textures to create a one-of-a-kind Axis A22 boat. You can even opt for an all-out package for a colored interior. For more information and to build your custom A22 visit
