Centurion's Enzo SV240 is a big, luxurious wakeboard boat that kicks up a big, trick-enabling wake. Its aft cockpit is a huge lounge with seating for 12. Two more can stretch out and chill in the generous bow cockpit while another pair strikes tanning poses on the 6'8"-by-4' sunpad. The starboard third of this pad hinges up to reveal a transom walkover, which will take the abuse off the cushions during boarding. It's textured to avoid a slip, as is the underside of the removable corner seat.

An Enzo edition, the SV240 I tested featured Centurion's highest measure of bling. There's a billet dash inlay, steering wheel cap, throttle knob, LED lighting, and stainless-steel cupholders. My test model featured Centurion's Matrix driver's seat ($519) at the helm. It features an extra-tall back support to complement the flip-up bolster and a built-in heater for those cold mornings. The boat also featured another cool option, a heads-up display ($344). This dash-mounted LED unit projects data onto a clear reflective panel on the windshield. It enables the driver to keep close tabs on speed and rpm, without having to avert his eyes from what lies ahead.

A boat this big naturally kicks up a decent recreational wakeboard wake. Centurion offers a variety of ways to make it even better. Ballast tanks add as much as 1,060 pounds to the boat's displacement. Bennett trim tabs ($656) are also available to reduce the tendency of a heavily weighted boat to porpoise. A third option is the company's SwitchBlade hydrofoil ($3,995). Anchored to the transom, the unit pulls the stern deeper into the water when deployed and can be trimmed to tailor wake shape and size. The standard watersports tower anchors the tow rope a full 6'6" off the cockpit floor and will dramatically enhance a rider's airtime by eliminating the downward pull of a pylon. Lightly loaded, the boat's 330-hp MerCruiser Black Scorpion pushed the boat onto plane in about four seconds and peaked at 42.9 mph. More important, it feels light and agile, and it corners with precision.
