Surf Fest 2016 presented by BoardCo, marks Utah Wake Addicts’ second annual wake surf festival where riders of varying skills and levels demo a variety of boards and premium wake surfing boats. After a full day of riding, surfers fill out surveys about the boards and boats rating each in a variety of categories. The results are in! The Centurion Boats Ri237 won hearts and minds with the top rating of 4.85 out of 5. To see what these high wake surfing marks are all about, visit your local Centurion Boats dealer to drive and ride the 2017 Ri237 today!
The wake surf boats evaluated by participants of Surf Fest 2016 included the Centurion Ri237, Malibu 25LSV, Supra SE550 and Tige Z3. These boats were rated based on surfer responses (1-5) to 16 questions to determine each boat’s average overall score. The Centurion Ri237 scored nearly perfect in every category from wave and other performance characteristics to design to craftsmanship. Visit the 2016 Surf Fest survey results for details.
As the nearly 24-foot Official Towboat for the BoardCo.com Rocky Mountain Wake Surf Open and the World Wake Surfing Championship, the 2017 Ri237 is the next level in performance, design and craftsmanship. The Ri237 helps you reimagine wake boat performance with a Deep-v Hull pushed by GM Marine Engine Technology from PCM. World Championship performance continues with the seamless integration of Centurion’s signature wake enhancement technology and industry-leading 5100 pounds of available factory ballast. RAMFILL Ballast fills in 45 seconds to create huge walls of water, while 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. The Ri237’s form follows its function with an ambitiously designed exterior featuring a one-of-kind modified v-bow, uniquely shaped body lines and a stylized transom that is as handsome as it is hangout-ready. Luxury interior accommodation like a 3-position Slide Seat with available lean backs and patented Side by Side High Definition (SxS HD) Touch Vision technology make days on the water in this Centurion last even longer. Inspirational is the only way to describe the level of craftsmanship applied to the Ri237. From the strength, consistency and environmental responsibility of the Vacuum Infusion Process (VIP) to the artistically applied gel coat to the quiet unibody construction it is all built on, the Centurion Ri237 is a new generation of World Championship Towboat.
