Why should you choose Centurion boats? For starters, all our boats are designed with both luxury and performance in mind. We use only the finest materials in all of our handcrafted boats, leading to increased reliability and performance. Since 1976, Centurion has been a trusted name on the water, and we strive to be at the cutting edge of the industry. Our Opti-V hull design allows for the ultimate experience, as it eliminates the shock of rough water for an amazingly smooth ride.

The Opti-V Hull Experience

Centurion’s Opti-V hull design displaces more water, to form the world’s best waves quickly on either side and creates side to side balance for perfectly symmetrical wakeboard wakes. With 20 degrees of deadrise at the transom, as much as double the degree of V as any other towboat, the ride is insanely smooth and balanced. Centurion offers the industry’s largest ballast capacities, and depending on the model, it delivers up 5550 pounds of displacement. All this leads to unparalleled wake and waves.

Centurion’s exclusive RAMFILL ballast is comprised of two subfloor tooled-in tanks that fill with as much as 2650 pounds of water in as little as 90 seconds. That’s a minute and a half to deliver exactly the wakes you want, whether beginner or seasoned pro. Over a ton of weight. In less than two minutes. Wakes can be adjusted mid-session. Fast. Efficient. The gift of time.

Ballast Wakes & Waves

Centurion offers the industry’s largest and best placed ballast capacities. Depending on the model, you can get up to 5550 pounds of displacement. That means you have the flexibility to dial in the waves and wakes you want. It’s a simple formula: more specifically placed ballast = better waves and wakes. End of story.

Save at the Pump

Budget smudget. Centurion’s Opti-V hull is so efficient, even with 20-degrees of deadrise, it cuts through the water with minimal resistance. This is thanks to strakes, chimes, rear hull pads, and wave enhancement systems that create lift rather than drag. The results? Up to 50 percent more fuel efficiency than comparable boats of other brands. Fill ‘er up.

On the Level — Quick Surf Pro

In just 1.8 seconds, QuickSurf Pro can move a wave from left to right, even mid-session, with the SxS HD or Split HD Touch Vision dash systems, while keeping the ride level for driver and passengers. Deliberately-shaped stainless blades with turned down and gently arced edges create more lift opposite the surf side, digging in the surf side corner of the hull and displacing water to create a well-defined surf wave.

Quick Launch

The efficient running surface of Centurion’s Opti-V Hull extends to ballasted take-offs with no bow rise and quick time-to-plane thanks to the QuickLaunch System. The Stinger Wake Plate joins the available port and starboard QuickSurf Pro Blades to create lift at the rear of the boat, allowing the running altitude to be more level at take-off getting the boat on plane in six seconds.

86.5dB Quiet Ride

Centurion Boats are no noisier than your average dishwasher. That’s quiet — as low as 86.5 decibels in the driver’s seat when pulling a wakesurfer running at 3500 rpm. The hush factor was achieved through the strength of unibody vacuum infused construction, combined with the available Patented Silent Stinger Wake Plate Exhaust System and the efficient power of GM Marine by PCM. Unibody construction chemically fuses the points where hull, stringer system, and deck converge, eliminating water noise and engine vibration.

Feel the Difference

Thicker is better. Thicker is noticeably more comfortable. More durable. Better. Centurion’s Comfort Strong Marine Vinyl by Spradling offers 17-mil topcoat, double the topcoat of any competitor and a good guard against abrasions and stains. New Hex accents have the same durability as the base vinyl and add texture. Seats are sewn together with GORE Tenera Thread, made by GORE-TEX, because it’s simply the best. Choose from six different thread colors. Details matter.

Sweet Surf Spectrum

In sports, the sweet spot is everything. Other boats have one sweet spot — a position, typically off the back of the swimstep, where there is a constant push. Centurion surf waves offer a spectrum of surfable power from the curl all the way up to the face of the waves. This helps beginners learn to throw the rope, as well as allow seasoned pros to master their next World Championship winning move. Centurion’s surf sweet spot is as much as 26 feet — wider of a sweet surf spectrum than a single spot.

2 Worlds

Best of Both Worlds

Centurion’s Opti-V hull has proven its versatility and utility time and again, but never more so than when it was the official towboat of both the 2017 World Wakesurfing Championships and 2018 IWWF World Wakeboarding Championships. Despite historical emphasis on surfing, Centurion’s Ri237 and Ri257 have become equally popular among wakeboarding enthusiasts because there’s just no better wake. Centurion’s own pro team dominated the competitions, and the boats garnered more than a few diehard fans due to performance.

Tower Partner


Centurion’s Maximus Tower by Roswell are one of the strongest in the industry. We have 800 towers in operation with zero failures since becoming a Correct Craft Company in 2015. Those numbers mean something. Strength. Stability. Endurance. Named after a Roman swordsman, the Maximus Tower is both strong and stylish. In testing, the Maximus Tower by Roswell withstands a full seven hours on the shake scale. Gel coat color-matched shields are available. Increase functionality by opting for the easy-to-use Maximus Bimini and Centurion-branded PTM Clamping Racks.

Power Partner

410 ft/lb

Torque determines usable power. Centurion Fi21, Fi23, Ri217, and Ri237 boats come standard with a whopping 410-foot pounds of torque thanks to an efficient GM Marine engine, a 1.72 to 1 gear reduction and torque-optimized propping. Even when weighted for a pro wakesurf session, the standard 409 horsepower GM Marine is efficient and effective. Upgrades are available to the GM Marine 6.0L 450 HO as well as the H6DI by PCM, standard in the 2018 Ri257, or the Supercharged GM Marine XR7 by PCM.
