Rigorous innovation continues at Centurion Boats with the new 2016 Ri217. Offering World Championship level wakeboarding, wake surfing, ride and handling in a popularly sized package; the Ri217 is the best of all worlds on the water and selected as the official World Wakeboarding Championship towboat for 2017.

This 21 foot 7 inch World Championship Towboat welcomes as many as 14 people with deep accommodation, but still maintains a manageable size for towing and driving. And while the design of the Ri217 has a lure all its own, the real draw of this Centurion is World Championship performance on all fronts.

This multifaceted high performance was intentional and begins with the Deep-v Hull design. The Ri217 Deep-v Hull was specifically shaped to create World Championship wakeboard wakes and World Championship wake surf waves without compromising World Class handling and ride. This foundation of performance is innovated by as much as 4,950 pounds of ballast with RAMFILL, the Centurion Articulation Tracking System (CATS), the all new Stinger Wake Plate and available QuickSurf Pro. Set the boat up for dawn patrol wakeboarding and then move straight to a mid-morning surf session simply by turning QuickSurf Pro on and choosing surf left or right.

If you are as much about seat time as you are air time, the Ri217 will not disappoint even the most aggressive driver in your group. With perfectly placed under water gear, finely tuned chines and sharpened strakes, the Centurion Ri217 is extremely responsive at slow and high speeds. The driver also has multi-tasking control over every boat system with the Patent Pending Side by Side (SxS) HD Touch Vision Dash.

Check out how to set up the Ri217 for surfing and wakeboarding with Centurion's online tutorial.

Popular Features and Options


The Ri217 comes as standard with RAMFILL - the most revolutionary ballast system ever. The hull is flooded instantly with an underwater scoop that is controlled by the Centurion Touch Vision System. If you want to max out the ballast on this boat - add bow ballast and plug n' play surf ballast bags. You may find other boats come with more ballast - or you may be used to adding more sacs yourself but Centurion designed the Ri217 to provide the optimal wake without needing to add any after-market ballast. It's not just about simply weighting the boat - it's about hull design, water displacement and correctly balancing the boat.



Introduced in 2015, Centurion's Quick Surf Pro System allows you to change the surf wake from side to side in seconds. More importantly, it allows you to surf a level boat without having to have your friends weight and list the boat for you - so you don't need to wait for a crowd to go surfing!



Salt water packages available for coastal riders.



The specially designed Maximus tower bimini provides great cover and extra board storage up top.

Choose from a Centurion-branded full towable and vented cover or snap-on bow and cockpit covers to keep your new Centurion looking pristine on or off the water. These covers are made from durable but lightweight fabric to make putting the cover on your boat easy!
