Merced, CA (October 25, 2019) – This year the Centurion Ri237 was again the Official World Wake Surfing Championship towboat and in less than a month the model will serve as the Official towboat of the IWWF World Wakeboarding Championships. The IWWF World Wakeboarding Championships will kick off November 19th to the 23rd in the city of Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates. Hosted by Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club (ADIMSC) the Ri237 will provide athletes with world class wakes as a stage for the international competition. The Centurion Ri237 continues to be the best solution for wake and surf boating. This combined surfing and wakeboarding phenomena is created by the Opti-V Hull, 5100 pounds of ballast, 6 specifically placed ballast locations and 90-second filling RAMFILL ballast. The Ri237 literally has the World’s best waves, wakes and ride. Safe to say, you can expect the perfect ride, every time, from this pro-tested boat. The side-to-side balance creates easy-to-achieve, symmetrical waves and wakes, and less resistance on its running surface delivers superior handing and 50 percent better fuel economy.
The Ri237 delivers top of the line performance and is striking from a distance, but for 2020 Centurion has made interior comfort a focus with the new Cobra Racing Seat that swivels 160 degrees without hitting the throttle console or being out of alignment with the dash giving the driver comfort when commanding the vessel with room to relax when just hanging out. Add the new available 6-way Power Seat and increase your seat height as well as the driver’s comfort. Choose your custom color combos to express your personal style and put an exclamation point on the statement this boat makes. The best just keeps getting better.

In sports, the sweet spot is everything. Other boats have one sweet spot – a position, typically off the back of the swimstep, where there is a constant push. The Centurion Ri237 offers a surfing sweet spectrum from the curl all way up to the face of the wave. This helps beginners learn to throw the rope, as well as seasoned pros master their next World Championship-winning move. This is why the Centurion World Wake Surfing Championship has now seen 139 personal bests during the competition. The Centurion Ri237 surf sweet spot is as much as 26 feet – with optional settings for however you ride. This “Best of Both Worlds” wave is the result of purposeful numbers and we’ve got yours.
Centurion’s Opti-V hull design displaces more water, to form the world’s best waves quickly on either side and creates side-to-side balance for perfectly symmetrical wakeboard wakes. With 20 degrees of deadrise at the transom, as much as double the degree of V as any other towboat, Centurion’s Opti-V Hull eliminates the shock of rough water for an amazingly smooth ride. Centurion has the World’s best waves, wake and ride. Centurion’s Opti-V hull is so efficient, even with 20-degrees of deadrise, it cuts through the water with minimal resistance. This is thanks to strakes, chines, rear hull pads and wave enhancement systems that create lift rather than drag. The results? Up to 50 percent more fuel efficiency than comparable boats of other brands.
Adding to the performance and efficiency of the 2020 Ri237 is Centurion’s exclusive RAMFILL ballast. This system is comprised of two sub-floor tooled-in tanks extending from the driver’s seat back to the transom of the boat. These tanks fill with as much as 2550 pounds of water in as little as 90 seconds. That’s a minute and a half to deliver exactly the wakes you want, whether beginner or seasoned pro. Over a ton of weight in less than two minutes and wakes can be adjusted mid-session. Just as important as the speed at a which these tanks fill and their weight is their location. They are evenly distributed through the center of the boat helping to eliminate a nose-high running angle and adding to the efficiency of the Opti-V running surface.
