2018 ushers in the most impressive lineup of Centurion wakesurf and wakeboard boats to ever hit the market. These new boats are packed with the most innovative features to date along with the most luxurious finishes available on any towboat. Here is a quick taste of some of the changes and newness available on the 2018 Centurion lineup:
The Fi23 – The all new Centurion Fi23 is a 23 foot wake and surf machine that delivers incredible performance at an even more incredible value. The Fi23 is a beautiful 23 foot boat that features aggressive lines and contours that can only be achieved with Centurion’s unique Vacuum Infusion Process technology. You haven’t seen anything like this boat before and it is the perfect boat if you are looking to maximize your value and still get the best wakes and waves available on any boat in the world.
Next Generation Quicksurf Pro – The Quicksurf Pro system on Centurion boats is getting an upgrade for 2018 with a new beveled contour that offers greater displacement and overall improved performance compared to previous versions.
Opti-V Hull – 2018 brings the next evolution in hull technology with the Opti-V Hull available on both the Ri Series and Fi series boats. This new hull shape offers greater displacement with less weight for surfing, a more balanced hull design for cleaner wakeboard wakes and significant improvements in handling and fuel efficiency. Centurion has been able to develop a hull that offers up all these improvements while still keeping the incredible rough water ride Centurion boats have always been known for. Take one of these new boats for a drive and you won’t believe the performance you see and experience.
New Ramfill Ventilation – Ventilation for the game-changing Ramfill ballast system has been refined and improved for 2018 making the fastest filling ballast system in the world even faster.
New Gelcoat Colors – A whole bunch of beautiful new gelcoat colors have been introduced for 2018 including a handful of colored “Silver Flake” gelcoats.

New Windshield – The newly developed windshield gives Centurion boats a crisp, clean look with sleek lines and bold accents along with a front that doesn’t cap on the top like a traditional windshield. The new windshield is truly a work of art.
