Centurion Ri237 Wakesurfing Review

The Ri237 has long been seen as Centurion’s best all-around boat, but by adding the Opti-V hull for 2018, it’s even better.

WHAT YOU GET

The Ri237 has always had a good wave — it pulls the Wakesurfing World Championships — but it is now easier to use and more user-friendly than ever. The Opti-V hull and QuickSurf allow you to go from wakeboarding to wakesurfing with just the push of a button, and the wave is instantly up to pro standards. Due to a missing board, we tested the Ri237 on a smaller board than normal, and put the center plate at 20 to peak the wave up a bit more, which goes to show that the wave can be customized to suit all kinds of riders and boards.

WHO IT'S FOR

Centurion’s signature wakesurf and wakeboard boat is the all-around performer in the Centurion line. It can be ridden by wakesurfers and wakesurf boards of all shapes, sizes and abilities. With seating for 16, there is plenty of room for all and their varying skill levels. Of course, you get the signature big-boat looks of the Ri line.

OUR FAVORITE THINGS

Ease of use. Fill up some ballast (Ramfill is super easy), turn on QuickSurf, and go shred an epic, endless wave.
Downfire speakers. Centurion's zone-controlled speaker systems ensures passengers and riders are getting all the tunes they can handle.
Paddle shifters. The shifters on the steering wheel can control boat speed and the center plate — a huge plus.
