2017 Centurion Boats Ri237 Centurion

This nearly 24-foot boat accommodates 16 people in unique style with as much as 5100 pounds ballast and room to spare. The 2017 Centurion Ri237 simply dwarfs competitors with similar specs and dominates with the Worlds best waves, wakes and ride. The official towboat of the Centurion World Wake Surfing Championship, the Ri237 offers the best surf waves on the planet, but thanks to the Modified Deep-V hull design maintains stellar levels of performance in wakeboard wake and ride quality. Check out the 2017 Ri237 at your local Centurion Dealer or Boat Show this winter!

Centurion’s Modified Deep-v Hull is the foundation of the World’s best waves, wakes and ride. The Centurion Ri Series provides World Championship wakeboard wakes and World Championship wake surf waves without compromising one or the other. Then the Ri237 mixes in the industry’s most comfortable rough water ride to create a 24-foot towboat that performs at the highest levels in all situations. This high performance combination has only been achieved by Centurion Boats.

This foundation of performance the Modified Deep-V offers is innovated by as much as 5100 pounds of ballast and exclusive Centurion wake enhancement devices. Tooled-in sub-floor RAMFILL Ballast has a fill-rate of 45 seconds to create huge walls of water. QuickSurf Pro can move your surf wave from side to side in as little as 2 seconds behind a level boat. The Centurion Articulating Tracking System (CATS) and the Stinger Wake Plate fine tune the shape of your wakes and waves with a touch.


To decrease your time to plane and completely eliminate bow rise, touch “QUICKLAUNCH” on the patented SxS HD Touch Vision screen. Set the boat up for dawn patrol wakeboarding and then move strait to a mid-morning surf session simply by turning QuickSurf Pro on and choosing surf left or right. Wether wake surfing or wakeboarding the Centurion Ri237 is on the level, a professional level.

The Ri237 is the Official Towboat of the World Wake Surfing Championship. This Centurion towed 31 personal bests for competitors at the 2016 World Wake Surfing Championship. This level of growth is unheard of in a competition, especially with professional athletes.

If you are as much about seat time as you are air time, the Ri237 will not disappoint even the most aggressive driver in your group. With perfectly placed under water gear, finely tuned reverse chines and sharpened strakes, the Centurion Ri237 is extremely responsive at slow and high speeds. In a nearly 24-foot inboard towboat this type of handling performance is extremely unique. The driver can also control every boat system even while multi-tasking with the Patented Side by Side (SxS) HD Touch Vision Dash.


The interior of the Ri237 is an experience in luxury and complete accommodation. Exclusive Comfort Strong marine vinyl by Spradling is sewn together with double and triple seams of GORE® TENARA® Thread by GORE-TEX®. This creates upholstery that is soft to the touch while maintaining strength and longevity even in high stress areas of the interior. Covering enough storage for a weekend on the water, the seating is stuffed with 3 densities of foam ergonomically contoured for the ultimate in comfort. The Ri Series interior is also versatile with the 3-postion Slide Seat, available directional lean-backs and table. The lounge also offers pull-up lean-back for another rear-facing seat.

When you’re on the outside looking in, the Ri237 still impresses. From the aggressive front grill to the intricate gel coat schemes to infinite color combinations to the exclusive Maximus Tower by Roswell, the Ri237 is the inspired reimagination of a water sports boat. The artistically applied gel coat lines are supported by the strength, consistency and environmental responsibility of the Vacuum Infusion Process (VIP). The Centurion Ri237 is big on performance, accommodation and craftsmanship.
