2021 Centurion Boats
Centurion’s Opti-V hull design displaces more water, to form the world’s best waves quickly.
Evolution is the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more sophisticated form. Centurion Boats has evolved the wake boat from one-dimensional function to intelligent multi-faceted performance that is multiplied by valuable features and options. The foundation of this wakeboat evolution begins with the 20 degrees of deadrise built into Centurion’s Opti-V Hull and a running surface specifically designed to produce the World’s best waves, wakes and ride. The Opti-V Hull was engineered to give you the deepest V in the industry, offering more water displacement for better wakes and waves. Centurion Boats additionally deliver as much as 5550 pounds of ballast, more than a 26-foot sweet surf spectrum, 90 seconds of fill time for as much as 2600 pounds of RAMFILL ballast, 1.8 second wave transfers with QuickSurf Pro and 6 seconds to plane even fully ballasted with QuickLaunch. The DNA of Centurion boats is further enhanced by strong construction, intelligent accommodations and a purpose-driven approach by which every new development is measured.
The Ri245 is new from the bottom up, separating it from the pre-existing Ri models (the 237 and 257). The running surface is redesigned but still built upon Centurion’s acclaimed Opti-V hull, featuring 20 degrees of deadrise that not only helps it displace more water for bigger wakes and waves, but also improves the ride in choppy waters. To complement the running-surface tweaks, Centurion also updated the transom-mounted surf-wave systems—the QuickSurf Pro tabs and Stinger Wake Plate—to further improve the wakes and waves for all types of riders.
Built on Centurion’s acclaimed Opti-V hull, which features 20 degrees of deadrise, the Ri265 has been optimized for creating some of the biggest wakes and waves. With seven ballast positions throughout the boat, capable of holding a combined 5,850 pounds, the Ri265 can displace serious amounts of water. Add in the transom-mounted QuickSurf Pro plates, which have also been tweaked to complement the new running surface, along with the Stinger Wake Plate in the center, and the wakes and waves can be fine-tuned and adjusted in seemingly infinite ways.
