2020 Centurion Vi24

This all-new 24-foot model from Centurion has caught a lot of attention, and for good reason.

Like all of Centurion’s boats, the Vi24 is built upon the Opti-V hull, which features 20 degrees of deadrise; and like the other Centurion boats, it offers the reward in wakeboarding wakes and wakesurfing waves, as well as a comfortable ride in rougher waters. The wakes and waves can be tweaked and tuned with the onboard Stinger Wake Plate and QuickSurf tabs.

Subfloor ballast holds a whopping 3,050 pounds, while three plug-and-play bags in the rear and the bow add 1,750 more. Centurion’s Ramfill system allows the subfloor ballast to fill in less than 90 seconds.

On board, passengers are treated to a comfortable Spradling interior that is also durable. Seating is customizable thanks to pop-up backrests on both the port and starboard sides, as well as a rear seat that slides into the cabin to act as a rear-facing bench—great for catching all the action on the water. A Roswell audio system keeps the tunes pumping.

From the helm, all of the Vi24’s functions can be controlled with a large, easy-to-navigate touchscreen. Paddle shifters behind the steering wheel allow for instantaneous adjustments to both the boat’s speed and the Stinger wake plate.

Mounted at the transom, the Stinger plate changes the Vi24’s running attitude, allowing riders to choose between a longer, more mellow wave, or a shorter, beefier one. The Vi24’s wave has a large pocket with plenty of push, great for all levels of riders.

With 24 feet of length, there is plenty of room for passengers to sit comfortably, and storage abounds—including a passthrough from the portside bow seat to the OB. The two lockers at the transom are great for stowing wet life jackets and ropes after all the action is done.

High Points

  • Storage is well thought out and easy to access.
  • Roswell Maximus tower can be color matched to the Vi24’s gelcoat for an added touch of customization.
  • QuickLaunch puts the Vi24 on plane faster and with minimal bow rise.
