, 2023 Centurion Fi23
The Centurion Fi23 is not for everyone. It is extremely purpose built. Like a fighter plane, the 2023 Fi23 has one main job, high performance. The Fi23 was designed to produce the best waves and wakes, while providing an unmatched rough water ride. Our engineers leaned into this focus with a mindset of fearless innovation building benefit into the Fi Series that maximizes only this purpose for our family of wake sports warriors who want to share, the worlds best waves wakes and ride.
Features may include:Opti V Hull
- The goal of the Opti-V Hull design, when it was released in 2018, was to continue to improve the World's best waves, wakes and ride. The Opti-V proved these improvements on the water with powerful quickly-formed waves, well-shaped symmetrical wakes, an unmatched rough water ride and a 50% improvement in fuel efficiency. The Opti-V made incredible improvements in Centurion's surf waves and wakeboard wakes. The Fi23's Opti-V Hull has the hook of the Ri Series with long triangular pads on the rear corners of the running surface. These innovations improve the running attitude of the boat to get the nose down and the entire “v” of the running surface cutting through chop, displace more water with the entire running surface for a long wave and guard the balance of the Fi23 from side-to-weight shift to produce a symmetrical wakeboard wake.
Ramfill 2 Ballast
- The Fi23 performance also benefits from 7 independently filled and drained ballast areas placed evenly throughout the boat. They combine for as much as 5250 pounds of ballast from the factory and allow for the boat run level in the water, even when weighted to ride. This balanced running attitude also helps create better fuel economy, low noise levels in the helm and better visibility for the driver with little to no bow rise.
Quick Surf Pro
- Available RAMFILL2, or the “Baller Ballast”, as we lovingly refer to it, accounts for more than half of the Fi23s ballast and fills in 90 seconds. This system takes the reliability of this largest, fast-filling ballast system to a new level with 2” ball valves being utilized for all four fill and drain gates. These valves are typically used for high pressure fuel systems in yachts because of their superior seal and extreme reliability. An Fi23 with RAMFILL2 offers the World's best wake surfing performance. This high water sports performance is only rivaled by the Fi23's reliability.
- The QuickSurf Pro Surf System has also been redesigned with longer blades made of solid stainless steel to create even more lift opposite the surf side. This creates more water displacement on the surf corner for an even wider range of surf wave adjustment.
- QuickLaunch System that gets the boat to wakeboarding speeds in 6 seconds. T
