2019 Centurion Ri257
The biggest thing in towed water sports is making waves for the 2019 model year with new features, options and the same dominate surfing performance. As the newly crowned market share leader in the 26-foot segment, the Centurion Ri257, continues to blow minds with the World’s best surf waves. This retail growth is thanks to a long wave with tons of push and a full spectrum of sweet spots from curl to face. This surfing phenomena is created by the Opti-V Hull, 5550 of ballast, 7 specifically placed ballast locations and 90-second filling RAMFILL ballast. The Ri257 has all the advantages of a big boat in waves, wakes and ride with uniquely better handling and 50% more fuel efficiency. Numbers like these have earned the Ri257 the title of official towboat at the 2018 BoardCo Rocky Mountain Wake Surf Open for the second year. The Ri257 also continues as the Official Pro and Outlaw towboat for the World Wake Surfing Championship presented by GM Marine. This year’s Centurion WWSC stands to pile on to the 58 World Championship personal bests behind the Ri257.
