LOUDON, TN--(Marketwired - February 10, 2017) - Malibu Boats (NASDAQ: MBUU), the global leader in watersports towboat sales, is proud to welcome JSW Powersports, on The Gold Coast of Queensland Australia, to the Malibu Dealer Family. The Australian market is hot for watersports and it's been helping fuel Malibu's rapid global growth.

JSW Powersports will be the Malibu and Axis Wake Research dealer for the Gold Coast and far northern New South Wales region. Known worldwide as a watersports destination, Australia's Gold Coast offers residents and visitors a paradise of long sandy beaches, amazing surfing spots and many inland canals and waterways.

"Malibu and Axis both fit in really well with the Gold Coast lifestyle, and now we'll be able to make the boats more accessible for our customers there."
