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 Malibu was done filling. To keep the perspective going we looped the video through a few times.
We hope the information here is helpful. Reach out to us with any questions or comments at all.
