MERCED, CA (December 16, 2616) – Offering World Championship level wake surfing, wakeboarding, ride and handling in a popularly sized package; the Ri217 is the best of all worlds on the water. This 21 foot 7 inch boat welcomes as many as 14 people with deep accommodation, but still maintains a manageable size for towing and driving. And while the design of the Ri217 has a lure all its own, the real draw of this Centurion is versatile performance. This multifaceted high performance was intentional and begins at water level with hull design optimized for waves, wakes and ride. Visit your local Centurion Boats Dealerand experience the World’s best towboats today.
The Ri217 Modified Deep-v Hull was specifically shaped to create the World’s best waves, wakes and ride. The Centurion Ri Series provides World Championship wakeboard wakes and World Championship wake surf waves without compromising one or the other. Then the Ri217 mixes in the industry’s most comfortable rough water ride to create a versatile towboat that performs at the highest levels in all situations. This high performance combination has only been achieved by Centurion Boats.
The International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation (IWWF) chose Centurion Boats as the Official Towboat of the IWWF Wakeboard Worlds after testing the Ri217. This foundation of performance is innovated by as much as 4950 pounds of ballast with 45-second filling RAMFILL, the Centurion Articulating Tracking System (CATS), the Stinger or new available patented Silent Stinger Wake Plate and available QuickSurf Pro surf system. Set the boat up for dawn patrol wakeboarding and then move strait to a mid-morning surf session simply by turning QuickSurf Pro on and choosing surf left or right. Whether wake surfing or wakeboarding the Centurion Ri217 is on the level, a high level.
If you are as much about seat time as you are air time, the Ri217 will not disappoint even the most aggressive driver in your group. With perfectly placed under water gear, finely tuned chines and sharpened strakes, the Centurion Ri217 is extremely responsive at slow and high speeds. The driver also has multi-tasking control over every boat system with the Patented Side by Side (SxS) HD Touch Vision Dash.
The interior of the Ri217 is also an experience that shouldn’t be missed. Exclusive Comfort Strong marine vinyl by Spradling is sewn together with double and triple seams of Gore Tenera Thread by GORETEX. This creates upholstery that is soft to the touch while maintaining strength and longevity even in high stress areas of the interior. Covering enough storage for a weekend on the water, the seating is stuffed with 3 densities of foam ergonomically contoured for the ultimate in comfort. The Ri Series interior is also versatile with the 3-position Slide Seat, available directional lean-backs and table. The lounge also offers pull-up lean-back for another rear-facing seat.
When you’re on the outside looking in, the Ri217 still impresses. From the aggressive front grill to the intricate gel coat schemes to infinite color combinations to the exclusive Maximus Tower by Roswell, the Ri217 is the inspired reimagination of a water sports boat.
