Centurion Boats introduced the 2018 Fi23, which offers a new Opti-V modified deep-vee hull design.

The company, owned by Correct Craft, said it has mixed the maximum surf wave displacement and ride quality advantages of a deep-vee with balance for a symmetrical wakeboard wake.

The company released a two-minute video of the boat in action:

The new Split HD Touch Vision dash enables riders to control as much as 4,850 pounds of ballast, along with the two-second transfer of QuickSurf Pro and fast, flat take-offs of QuickLaunch, according to the company.

With available Ramfill, the Fi23 can fill in as little as 45 seconds to create pro-level waves and wakes.

Because Centurion designed the Fi23 to offer an entry-premium price boat, some of the technology and luxuries that reside in the Ri Series have been taken out of the Fi or made optional.
