WBM:Who are you designing this boat for?

Centurion: This is about as close to a compromise boat as you can get. It is designed to have a real smooth wake and a real good wakeboarding wake. It doesn’t have quite as smooth of a wake as our full-on tournament boat, the Eclipse, and doesn’t have as big of a wake as the wakeboarding Elite-V, but it comes close in both respects. It is designed to be able to do both disciplines with a flick of a switch. We put a little more vee in this model so it would have a smoother ride and a better wakeboard wake. The extra width gives it low slalom wakes.


How does this boat fit in the market?
I don’t think there are any large slalom boats as wide or roomy on the inside. If there are, they don’t yield this good of a slalom wake. Certainly our construction is completely different. We have advantages in our ability to make a boat that is more solid. It is bigger than the other boats, has a smoother slalom wake and a bigger wake in wakeboarding configuration because of the vee bottom. Overall it’s just bigger, badder and better.

**What cool features does this boat have?
**Our modified step-through has more benefits than the built-in ice chest. It’s really there to create strength. Every bowrider boat is just two halves of a boat stuck together looking for a way to fall apart. By having that half-step, it ties the boat together and makes the hull far stronger. The rear trunk has an innovative ballast system that inflates the storage system so you can have storage when it isn’t full. Behind the passenger seat is a cavernous storage area. We dropped the floor to go down to the skin of the boat. We put reinforcement pieces in, so there is all kinds of storage and it is continuous to the front of the boat.

**What are you most proud of?
**The fact that this model is so on target as a recreational boat that can do both slalom skiing and wakeboarding very well. It is not a single-purpose boat. And then, as with all our boats, the construction, ride and general strength of the unibody way of designing the boat is a real plus.

**Chill Factor
WBM: This well-appointed boat has some cool features like the mid-walk-through cooler, massive storage and removable carpet. The Cockpit has great visibility, stereo is well placed and the entire dash is modern and well laid out. There’s a lot of legroom for the driver, but the throttle seems a little low. Platform is good sized, and the ProFlight tower is sturdy and easy to fold down.
