Wakeboard Boat Review
The Centurion Enzo scores attention as the official tow boat of the World Wakesurfing Championships, held at last year’s Boardstock. But the Centurion Enzo also deserves press for its unique style – West Coast meets Ferrari. Lines curve and flare, especially to create an extra-wide bow on an already big wakeboard boat. Billet accents shine all over. The red gelcoat is hot. Two steps on the transom are handy and look cool.
More style here – industrial yet elegant. If you get the optional stereo, you’ll love the chrome speaker mounts.
Optional wake plate has auto and manual settings to memorize optimal settings for wakes and planing.
Optional setup shoots fumes to either side of the boat for wakesurfing, and has a souped-up rumble.
Sure, the Centurion Enzo is solid for wakesurfing, kicking up a big wall and greater transition. But it’s a wakeboard boat, with all the power and amenities that entails. A recent test with 400 pounds of factory ballast and the optional Switchblade adjustable wake plate deployed produced wakes for even advanced wakeboarders. The Switchblade alters wakes from steep to mellow, with landing zones consistent and long. Riding gets even better if you load up 12 people on this long, wide 23-footer to see just how big you can make the wakes.
