Surf / Ski / Wakeboard – One Boat – 5 Minutes!

It’s time to give the people what they’ve asked for. Over and over we have received the same request – a boat that looks incredible with a world class wakeboard wake, flat ski wake, room for the full crew, loads of storage space, handling like a sports car, and most importantly the biggest and most versatile surf wave in the world; oh – and drop the price tag while you’re at it.

For years Centurion has been working to engineer a boat that accomplishes the impossible – a boat that does it all at an unmatched value, with no compromises. No matter what you are looking to do the Fi23 has you covered and will do it on a level you won’t believe at [...]

With the upgraded ballast bags and the Switchblade wake-enhancement system, this 22’ boat throws a great wave for surfing. You would be hard-pressed to find a better boat for surfing in this price-range. We have done all the proper maintenance on this boat and have kept it in excellent shape. Boat has 516 engine hours and has had only 2 owners.

Features

Upgraded starboard and port 1100 pound ballast bags (factory hard tanks have been removed) which increases weight and provides additional storage space under side seats. The factory center-hard tank is still installed and can be used to get a great wave for wakeboarding.

This video is a follow up to the video that we made comparing a Malibu MXZ and a Nautique G23 to a Centurion Ri257 looking at fuel economy and power. If you would like to check them out you can see each of them here:

There were a number of people that were concerned that the information wasn’t valid because the Malibu MXZ we used in the video was a 2016 model and the 2017 model changed both the hull and the drivetrain of the boat. As you can imagine, getting current model boats to do this kind of testing is difficult, REALLY difficult. We made the offer to run our fuel flow rate Diacom test on any manufacturer’s current model year towboat, but had no takers.

Well, it didn’t take long for us to take a 2017 Malibu 24 MXZ in on trade for a new Centurion. Of course, we couldn’t miss [...]

This post is part 2 in our video series that takes a direct look at the Centurion Opti-V Hull and how it compares to it’s two major competing boats on the Market – a Malibu 24 MXZ and a Nautique G23.

The first video in this series was the most shared, talked about and debated post we have ever made – with thousands of people viewing it and hundreds of people weighing in on the results. As a quick recap here is a summary of the results from our fuel economy test for wakesurfing:

Gallons of fuel burned per hour while surfing:
Centurion Ri257 w/ 5,050 lbs. of ballast – 8.25 GPH
Nautique G23 w/ 2,850 lbs. of ballast – 13.5 GPH
Malibu 24 MXZ w/ 3,000 lbs. of ballast + wedge – 17.5 GPH

There were a number of points that were brought up in the reactions that people had to this [...]

If you’ve spent much time looking on our website or poking around online you’ve probably come across some pretty unbelievable information about the new Centurion Opti-V Hull. We made this video because the claims about the Opti-V hull are exactly that – almost “Unbelievable”.

I mean, come on… 50% better fuel efficiency? A better wakeboard wake than the best wakeboard boats on the market? Faster acceleration than a flat bottom boat?

Yes, and this is where we prove it.

Earlier this fall we took out 3 boats – a Centurion Ri257, Nautique G23 and Malibu 24 MXZ, hooked a diagnostic computer up to them and got the raw data on fuel economy, acceleration speed, noise rating, etc. Big thanks to our friends and team riders for letting us use their boats to do these tests! If anyone has a comparable boat from a different brand let us know and we are happy to do this [...]

In this post we have a video that we shot doing something we have never seen done before. We are showing you the surf wave, wakeboard wake and ski wake behind the same boat – all in one take; completely unedited, untouched and shot on an iPhone7. This hopefully shows you the performance of the new Opti-V hull as well as the speed and versatility of the Ramfill ballast system.

When showcasing the “crossover” performance of other wake boats you typically see something like this:
-The ski wake with one driver, no passenger, and no ballast. Typically these are shots of the skier outside the wake and never showing the skier going through the wakes.
-A different set of shots of the wakeboard wake with 8 passengers, full ballast and a pro rider with camera angles designed to make it look bigger and cleaner.
-Another set of shots of the surf wave [...]
