Welcome to the ultimate – the biggest, baddest, most feature – packed, best -performing surf boat ever built. The Ri257 has all of the advantages of a 26-foot boat in waves, wakes, and accommodations but none of the drawbacks in handling and bow rise. The wakesurfing waves behind this Centurion are unlike any other. The combination of a maximum water-displacement hull design, 5,550 pounds of factory ballast – the largest ever offered – and the QuickSurf Pro Surf System make the Ri257 the best wakesurfing boat ever created. Centurion has innovated the Ri hull design to finally be able to wakeboard and wake surf at World Class levels behind the same boat.

On the inside, the Ri257 offers storage to accommodate an 18-person crowd along with flexible seating configurations and the deepest freeboard of any towboat – of any size, in any class – [...]

The Centurion Ri217 delivers World Championship level wakeboarding, wakesurfing, ride and handling filtered down to the largest 22 foot boat you have ever stepped in. Clocking in just under 22 feet the Ri217 welcomes as many as 14 people with a deep lounge interior, but still maintains a manageable size for towing and driving. While the design of the Ri217 has a lure all its own, the real draw is World Championship performance on all fronts.

This multifaceted high-performance boat begins with the Ri Series Opti-V Hull design. The Ri217 hull was specifically shaped to create World Championship surf waves and the best wakeboard wakes Centurion has ever offered without compromising handling and ride. The Ri217 is loaded with as much as 4,950 pounds of ballast with RAMFILL, the Stinger Wake Plate and topped off with the QuickSurf Pro System.

Recently we had the opportunity to run some tests and shoot some video with a Malibu MXZ that we took on trade and see how it compared against boats in our Centurion lineup. In this video we test the ballast fill times for the Centurion Ri237 and the Malibu 24MXZ and see how they compare as well as give details on the ballast systems.

Here are the ballast fill times for adding 3,000 lbs. into the boats:
Centurion Ri237 – 54 seconds
Malibu 24MXZ – 10 Minutes 20 seconds

In the video you may notice that while Jack is out surfing behind the Ri237 that the video is clipped and looped. After we shot the video and came back to sync up the footage on the two cameras we noticed that Jack finished surfing earlier than we had expected and there was a big gap between when they finished surfing and when the [...]

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 [...]
