Who would have thought going smaller would be such big news! With as much as 5400 pounds of ballast available in the new 23-foot Centurion Ri230, the incredible surf wave has become a bigger topic of conversation because it is being generated by the smallest of the Ri Series Centurions. But it wouldn’t be an Ri if it wasn’t also a revolution innovated in addition to being another huge step in the evolution of the wake boat. This 23-foot wake boat is the epitome of a fundamental and sudden shift in power. But this new Centurion is not turning the tide in the battle for wake surfing boat mindshare based on its popular size or an extra large price tag. The Ri230 is attacking all areas of innovation simultaneously with a deeper, thoughtfully refined, more aggressively styled and better performing 23-foot wake surf boat; that manages to hold a reasonable price point. The World’s best waves, wakes and ride have gotten even better with the evolved running surface of the Ri230’s Opti-V Hull. The look of the Centurion Ri230 merges the depth of the Ri Series with the sharp lines of the Fi Series achieving an aggressive, head-turning style. Centurion engineers have added a number of lake life-improving refinements to the Ri230 for as many as 14 people. The 2022 Centurion Ri230 includes Centurion’s Remote Engagement Continuous Optimization Network (RECON) telematics by Osmosis, Lay-flat Sun Pad Lounge Seats, Revo 12-inch by 12-inch side by side touch screens, the all new available RAMFILL2 or as well call it the “Baller” ballast system, the available Range of View (ROV) bow to stern camera system with live fuel usage data, and the available Centurion Shift Thruster System by CMI. The Ri230 is revolution innovated. Let us prove it to you.
