We Say: Bigger can indeed be better with respect to watersports boats, as the Centurion Ri257 revealed during our test. Displacing 6,000 pounds, the 25-foot Ri257 is rated for a crew numbering 18 and can carry over 5,500 pounds of ballast. So, while it won't fit into some garages on a trailer, this Centurion can produce some big, bad wakes and waves. Pro testers from our sister publication Wakeboarding rode behind the boat and noted that using full ballast for surfing could create long, mellow waves or steep ones. For wakeboarding, our riders noted that only partial ballast was needed in order to create a massive wall of water, enabling aspiration toward —and execution of — pro-level riding.
