Centurion Boats Enzo SV240 2008

Wakeboard Boat Review

We welcomed the debut of the Centurion Enzo SV240 last year as a way to top off the popular Enzo line with the biggest, baddest wakeboard boat in the Centurion fleet. It has more of everything that matters — more room in the lounge, more space in the bow, more styling throughout, more wake potential. Gotta love it.

Hull: Bigger water, lots of rollers, double-ups — the Centurion Enzo SV240 is built to handle it. This wakeboard boat has a large footprint with the even 24-foot length and the wide 102-inch beam, so not much can knock it off its track. The deep-V design ensures the Centurion Enzo SV240 will slice on through. It's crafted with an all-fiberglass top deck that's locked into the hull with a reverse shoe box fit.

Ballast: In addition to the standard two midship ballast tanks at about 200 pounds each, there are three more optional tanks spread throughout the boat, including a 500-pound bow tank and two 200-pound rear tanks. That spacing and the 16 passengers aboard help balance the boat for wakeboarding or wakesurfing.

Tower: We liked the Double Up wakeboard tower, a new design for '08, because nobody banged their head on it. And of course, it had cool black-powder-coated aluminum tubing accented with the optional polished front supports. The swivel wakeboard racks were user-friendly.

Wake shaper: The manual wake plate comes standard, but we prefer being able to adjust the running attitude and wake shape on the fly, so we'd go for the upgrade to the Switchblade foil and Bennett trim tabs.

Highlight feature: Styling lines. We like how the stainless- steel rub rail curves down gracefully from the bow to almost the level of the swim platform. Then there are the bow contours, the upholstery details and more.

The wake: The Centurion Enzo SV240's hull design works well to not just handle that ballast weight with a wakeboarder in tow, but keep the ride stable. It's a solid performer. The wakes themselves are clean and crisp with a well-shaped lip.
