MERCED, CA (August 30, 2017) – The biggest thing in towed water sports is back on the scene making more waves for the 2018 model year. Just 10 months since the introduction of the Centurion Ri257, we continue to see incredible retail response to the performance, look and amenities of the 26-foot towboat. Thanks to the Opti-V Hull design this Centurion has all the advantages of a big boat in waves, wakes and ride with uniquely better handling and fuel efficiency. This dominant performance earned the Ri257 the title of official towboat at the 2017 BoardCo Rocky Mountain Wake Surf Open. This Centurion was so successful pulling that World Series of Wake Surfing event, the Ri257 was made the Official Pro and Outlaw towboat for the 2017 World Wake Surfing Championship presented by GM Marine. Visit your nearest Centurion Boats dealer to experience the perfect ride with the 2018 Ri257 today.
The Centurion Ri257 has gotten a bit of a facelift less than a year after being released with a new tactical-looking black framed Centurion-brand windshield, a new similarly styled available RAMFILL vent as well as new interior vinyl and non-skid flooring choices.
The first Centurion to benefit from the Opti-V Hull design, the Ri257 creates exceptional balance with engineered triangular pads on the rear corners of the hull. The side-to-side balance creates a symmetrical wakeboard wake, but because there is less resistance on this running surface the Ri257 delivers superior handling and 50% better fuel economy.
Flexible seating configurations, available 45-second RAMFILL with as much as 5550 pounds of available factory ballast and the available QuickSurf Pro Surf system make the Centurion Ri257 the best surfing boat ever created.
