MERCED, CA (May 2, 2017) – Centurion Boats’ waves, wakes and ride continue to prove the “World’s Best” distinction. Boating Industry selected the Centurion Ri257 from hundreds of products introduced or significantly updated for 2017 as a Top Product for its innovation, impact on the industry and creativity. Boating Industry, like the ever-increasing number of Ri257 owners, found the Ri257 to have all the advantages of a 26-foot boat in waves, wakes and accommodations, but none of the drawbacks. The 2017 Centurion Ri257 is a Boating Industry Top Product.

Paul Singer President of Centurion & Supreme Boats, was asked why he thought the Ri257 earned the Boating Industry Top Product award. He explained, “Anyone familiar with Centurion expected the Ri257 to be an amazing towboat because the entire Ri series is incredible. It is the immediate popularity and competitor conversions to the Ri257 that were surprising. I think these strong retail sales forced the industry to really take notice of the Centurion Ri Series, especially the Ri257.” Singer added, “This latest award from Boating Industry proves the Ri Series is among the industry’s top products and we are extremely grateful for the honor.”

This new Ri257 from Centurion has all the advantages of a 26-foot boat in waves, wakes and accommodations, but none of the drawbacks. Flexible seating configurations, maximum water-displacement hull design, 5550 pounds of available factory ballast and the available QuickSurf Pro Surf system make the Ri257 the best surfing boat ever created. Comfy in rough water, big enough for a crowd of 18 and all the necessary equipment and amenities, you’ll never want to go home when you have the Ri257.
