Centurion continues to lead the way in industry innovation
SQUAW CREEK, CA (February 27, 2020) – Last night, Centurion Boats was awarded a Watersports Innovation Award by the Water Sports Industry Association (WSIA) at the WSIA Summit in Squaw Creek, California. Centurion was recognized for their development of the Opti V Hull and QuickLaunch.
With 20 degrees of deadrise at the transom, as much as double the degree of V as any other towboat, Centurion’s Opti-V Hull eliminates the shock of rough water for an amazingly smooth ride. QuickLaunch gets your vessel on plane quickly so you never lose sight of the horizon. It’s no surprise that these two innovations were spotlighted as they’ve helped make Centurion Boats the fastest growing brand in the industry.
The WSIA Summit hosts more than 200 attendees and celebrates achievements with awards across the towed water sports industry on both the retail and manufacturer levels. The Watersports Innovation Awards recognizes industry leaders and their products that have push the towed water sports marketplace to new heights over the past year. Products from various facets of the industry were awarded for the year of 2019.
Centurion & Supreme President, Paul Singer, stated, “Our Product Design and Development team was excited to release the Opti-V Hull and QuickLanuch. For one, the Opti-V Hull has become an important next step in the evolution of the wake boat. The Opti-V design displaces more water creating natural surf waves while incorporating side-to-side balance for symmetrical wakeboarding wakes. QuickLaunch has resulted in take offs with no bow rise and quick time-to-plane. Both innovations help make Centurion Boats the world’s best waves, wakes and ride,”
CEO of Correct Craft Bill Yeargin stated, “Innovation is important to our Correct Craft team as we prepare for the future and ensure our customers have the best experience available on the water. Last fall we were recognized as the industry’s most innovative company and earlier this month won multiple innovation awards at the Miami International Boat Show. I love our team and it is exciting to see them receive the recognition they deserve!”
