The Centurion Ri257 is a giant of a boat that makes a statement both with how big it is and the size of its waves.

What You Get
At over 25 feet, the Ri257 is pushing a lot of water. With the new Opti-V hull and QuickSurf, all that water gets shaped into a wave that is arguably the best in the market. It is pro level and then some. You can do whatever you want because the wave can pretty much handle it all, and tweaking the center tab allows you to customize it to your liking. There is plenty of size, power and pocket for any level rider.

Who It’s For
If you want the biggest and the best — and you want all your friends in on that action too — then the Ri257 is for you. The Ri257 pumps out a wave that you have to see to believe, and once your friends see it, they’re not going to want to leave, so make sure you really like them.


Our Favorite Things
The wave. We’ve already said it, but it bears repeating. It’s giant and ridiculously fun.
QuickSurf. Centurion’s integrated surf system really shines on the bigger Fi23, and makes transfers easy.
Spaciousness. There is a lot of room inside a 25-foot boat, and that means plenty of comfort and seating options, especially with the adjustable rear bench.
