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 [...]

The Fi Series

Since it was first rumored the most common questions we get on the new 2018 Centurion line all center around one thing – the Fi Series. This new boat series for 2018 is unlike anything that we have seen, either from Centurion or from any other inboard boat company. The following hopes to answer the most important and frequently asked questions about the Fi:

Why did Centurion build the Fi?

The Fi Series is designed to meet a number of customer desires that were not being met fully within the existing Centurion offering. The goal of the Fi series was to create a boat with a unique look, an unbeatable value proposition, and legendary performance.

What is the cost?

The value proposition of the Fi is incredible. Many of the options and features on the Fi are a-la-carte, allowing you to choose the options important to you while maintaining the top notch [...]
