Features At A Glance Explore the A245

Wake Plus™ Hull

The Wake Plus™ Hull was designed specifically for watersports and allows the boat to sit deeper in the water at slower speeds. This generates more water displacement, creating the best wakes and waves for any rider.

Gorilla Fins

We use gorilla fins with 120 square inches of surface area; not only is the size important but the placement on our models is much further forward than others. This fin maximizes tracking ability for quicker handling and better control.

Bold Styling

The A245’s aggressive styling lines take their cues from the popular Axis A225. The all-new body lines bring a modern look to the distinct pickle fork bow, making it the most aggressive Axis of all time.

Sliding Skybox Seat™

The rear-facing Sliding Skybox Seat™ with optional lean backs gives your crew comfortable stadium seating to watch all the behind-the-boat action.

Pickle-Fork Bow

The A245's pickle-fork bow is its own separate social zone with dedicated speakers, plenty of cup holders, and grab handles that are recessed for a streamlined look and feel.

Axis AW20 Tower

The Axis AW20 tower spans the lounge with custom Axis styling and functionality. Available with up to four space-saving board racks and four tower speakers, the Axis AW20 tower is an extension of the A245 and a lifesaver when you have a big crew with lots of different boards.

The Axis Dash

With a minimalist, clean layout that screams no-frills performance, the 7-inch touch screen takes center stage on the dash. With the upgraded Sport Dash™, everything you need to keep an eye on your boat's vitals or set up for wakesurfing and wakeboarding is at your fingertips.

Surf Gate®

Wait until you see how easy it is to turn the wake into an endless, customizable wave for surfing. Push a button to activate Surf Gate®. That’s it. The Surf Gate’s high-speed hydraulic actuators let you quickly shift the wave from side to side.

Power Wedge® III

The available Power Wedge® III adjusts the wake with ease and control producing the equivalent of 1,500lbs. of ballast which competitors can’t match.

Soft Grip Accents & Badging

The nose is covered with Soft Grip, which provides sure footing when entering the boat. You can also find new Axis badging on the gunwales and the wind dam, which add an extra finishing touch to the bow’s look.

Pop-Up Chill-Ax Seat Backs

Optional Chill-Ax pop-up seat backs lift into place and make a secure, comfortable seat on both sides of the lounge.

Transom Walkthrough with Filler Cushion

Built with watersports in mind, the A245 has a Soft Grip-covered walkway over the sun pad to the swim platform for sure footing in this heavily traveled path. Available filler cushion insert completes the lounge to make a seamless flow of vinyl and a great place to relax and soak up some sun.

Malibu Monsoon Engines

Continuing on the Axis mantra to provide exceptional value with next-generation performance, your Axis is powered by Malibu Monsoon Engines. Designed to bring even better reliability, performance, fuel economy, and sound reduction, the state-of-the-art, direct-injection M6Di® and M5Di® engines are manufactured in-house to create the best engines at the best value for you.

rotatable image feature

Powered by GM® Marine

We work hand-in-hand with industry leaders like GM® Marine to design and develop a unique line of in-board engines to give your boat the power it deserves. These state-of-the-art, direct-injection engines are manufactured in-house at our dedicated 70,000-square-foot Tennessee plant adjacent to Axis' headquarters.

Fuel Efficient

Direct Injection means the engine bypasses the air intake and injects fuel directly into the combustion chamber, improving fuel economy. This allows for more precise fuel burn, which equals more savings at the pump.

FEAD®

What is FEAD®? It stands for Front-End Accessory Drive, and it's a custom cast that features a fully integrated cooling system where engine oil and transmission fluid temperatures are controlled more easily and more environmentally friendly.

Peak Performance

Malibu's Monsoon line of engines were specifically built for watersports giving you maximum power early in the torque curve to give you a boat that never bogs down — even with a boat full of ballast and friends.

Axis Trailers

The best boats deserve the best trailers, and there’s no better way to haul your Axis boat than with an Axis trailer. Built in-house by the best team of craftspeople in the business, our custom-built trailers match our boats in engineering and quality. Choose from numerous options, including two-tone paint, Rockstar wheels, stainless steel fenders, runway lighting, and more. When you buy an Axis trailer, you’re assured that your Axis boat will fit properly and securely with no clearance issues.

Custom-Cut Bunk Carpet

We bevel the leading edge of all our bunks to minimize wear from boat loading and unloading.

Tandem Fenders

Our fenders are as solid as our steps. which are welded to the frame.

Custom Wheels

We offer several different wheel options including 14" standard with multiple choices for upgraded 18" wheels.

"Jig and Fixture" Process on Every Trailer

All Axis Trailers are produced through the same frame jig, which ensures that the frames, steps, cross members, and axels, are flat, straight, and square. This is especially important for axle location and alignment to the trailer's frame, which affects how well a trailer tows behind your vehicle.

Axis AW20 Tower

No Axis is complete without its matching tower. With standard quick-release latches and an available shock package for effortless raising and lowering, you can make the AW20 your own with speaker packages and your choice of fixed, swivel, or swivel clamping board racks.
