We get lots of questions involving engine hours, especially on used or demo boats. Often times we see people looking for boats that are 10 years old with less than 200 engine hours. While that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it can often lead to people overpaying (sometimes drastically) to get a boat that won’t perform any better or last longer than a boat with higher engine hours.
There’s a widespread misconception regarding engine hours on used boats. The most common question we get regarding used boats is something along these lines: “How many hours are too many hours on a boat?” or “How long will a boat engine last? 900 hours?”
We often get used boats in on trade that have close to 1,000 hours on the engine. People tend to think 1,000 hours is too many, but what is too many? Let’s make a comparison with the automotive industry. We have [...]

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 a value unlike anything out there.
