Who Would Have Thought Going Smaller Would be such Big News

MERCED, CA (August 30th, 2021) – Centurion is proud to announce the new 23-foot Centurion Ri230.

The Centurion Ri230 generates large incredible surf waves even as the smallest model in the Ri Series. This 23-foot boat is a size many boaters have been wanting to get a hold of because of its deeper, thoughtfully refined, and more aggressively styled vessel; that manages to hold a reasonable price point. Bring 14 of your closest family and friends aboard the Ri230.

The look of the Centurion Ri230 merges the depth of the Ri Series with the sharp lines of the Fi Series achieving an aggressive, head-turning style. The chiseled lines of the Ri230 are only part of this boats telling exterior. The two-tone lit Centurion-branded front grill lets you know this is an Ri at first sight. Then the two pair of Baja Racing docking lights finish that look shining with 4800 lumens (lm) on each side. The side profile of the boat reveals the perfect combination of shapes, textures and materials visually communicating Centurion’s World-Renown wake surfing reputation in an eyeshot. Black and brushed billet anodized vents created by PTM look as if they were designed to go specifically with the Ri230 because they were.

Once you can look past these signature elements, you become aware of the DropZone Auto Tower that is standard on the Ri230. DropZone Auto Tower by Roswell folds quick and smooth with the push of a button thanks to floating Linear Actuators. The DropZone offers even more function with thoughtful touches like surf-side tow points and branded hangers. It also provides 40% more strength thanks to the water drop extruded construction that compliments the lines of the Centurion Ri230 perfectly.

Not only does it look good, the evolved running surface creates the perfect wave from its Opti-V Hull with 5400 pounds of available ballast.

The Ri230’s Opti-V Hull has been innovated to include more hook, which changes the running attitude of the boat to get the nose down and the entire “v” of the running surface cutting through chop and/or displacing water for wake surfing and wakeboarding.

Centurion’s RAMFILL Ballast System fills in 90 seconds or less in seven different locations placed evenly throughout the boat. The new QuickSurf Pro Surf System has also been redesigned with longer blades featuring a turned-down trailing edge to create even more lift opposite the surf side. This creates more water displacement on the surf corner for an even wider range of surf wave adjustment and still manages fuel with more than 50% better efficiency than others.

The Ri230 hosts many innovative features including two side by side 12” X 12” Touch Vision HD Dash that are the brains of the operation with graphical control over nearly every boat system. These larger screens are not only high definition, they are extremely user friendly. Some other exciting and innovative features on the Ri230 are a wireless clamping cell phone charger, custom seat layout, two lay-flat sun pad lounge seats, bow to stern camera. For those who love to jam out, no matter where you are on your vessel the stereo can be controlled through four different locations.
