Centurion Thankful for 59% Increase in Retail Sales, but Preparing for Ultimate Success

Centurion’s disruptive product development and customer experience focused approach is showing indications of success with a 59% increase in domestic retail units sold through November 2018. (Compared to 2017 12 months rolling.) While Centurion Boats is extremely thankful and encouraged by this surge in retail sales, the company believes this increase is simply a small reward foreshadowing bigger victories to come. The 59% increase is confirmation that the difficult steps they have taken to aggressively redesign the entire Centurion boats line, expand the dealer network and share Correct Craft’s dedication to making lives better is the right path. There is still a lot of road left in front of Centurion Boats to realize the brand’s potential, but they have resolved to continue to do the right things to get there.

“We are very humbled by the success Centurion is experiencing around the world,” commented Paul Singer, President of Centurion and Supreme Boats. Singer continued, “I am a firm believer that if you commit to the right things those efforts will be rewarded. We have an incredibly supportive team at Correct Craft and a forward-thinking factory design team committed to delivering the ultimate boating experience. I believe the Centurion boats and systems best provide what customers are truly looking for today in a World Class Towboat.”

Robby Maschhaupt Joins Centurion Boats Family to Pass the Handle

We have partnered with Roswell Marine, Carolina Water Sports & Marine, the Water Sports Industry Association (WSIA) and Monster Energy to bring Robby Maschhaupt into the Centurion Boats Family to Pass the Handle (PTH). Maschhaupt hosted more than 750 on the water last year in an effort to spread the stoke of wake surfing. In 2019 he will be sharing the World's best waves, wakes and ride in his 2019 Centurion Ri257. This effort is less about proving Centurion’s perfect ride and all about making lives better. Whether it is one of Robby’s more than 70 PTH events, Wakes-giving, Wake for Warriors, Wake & Flake or CWS Surf Jam, he is sharing the pure joy of water sports boating at every opportunity by passing the handle. Visit passthehandlelkn.com to learn more about this new partnership and all of Maschhaupt's 2019 Pass the Handle events.

"We could not be more excited for Robby to choose to Pass the Handle in an Ri257 this year,” expressed Paul Singer, President of Centurion & Supreme Boats. “We have always been a huge supporter of the WSIA and efforts to expand the reach of water sports. We feel that bringing Robby into our Family will super-charge that resolve.”

Robby Maschhaupt is a Pass the Handle wake surfing coach. PTH is about getting new people on the water. His main goal is to share the stoke of water sports with others. He does this through a variety of specifically planned events as well as just spending as much time on the water as possible teaching wake surfing.

“My goal as a wake surfing coach when exposing people to water sports for the first time, is to get them surfing and enjoying themselves quickly,” Maschhaupt told us. “What better tool could I have to further this goal, than the World’s best wake surfing boat. The 2019 Centurion Ri257 cranks out the best surf wave for beginners and pros. We are going to share a ton of stoke on the water this year with that monster wave.”

An effort the size of Robby’s operation requires a ton of support. The boat is only a part of it. Much of the partnership required to execute the events as well as time on the water happens at a local level. This is where North Carolina Centurion Boats Dealer, Carolina Watersports, comes in. CWS has also partnered with Maschhaupt to help pass the handle on the local level as well as prove Centurion’s claim of the World’s best waves, wakes and ride.

Robby will be executing more than 70 Pass the Handle events out of Peninsula Yacht Club and Holiday Marina in Cornelius, NC with his 2019 Centurion Ri257. He will also be organizing 9 other signature events like Wakes-giving, Wake for Warriors, Wake n Flake and Carolina Watersports Surf Jam. Wake n Flake is a fundraiser for Wake the World. Wake for Warriors is a 3-day event that benefits veteran service men and women. Carolina Watersports Surf Jam is a one-day event where Robby’s Ri257 and 5 other Centurions will pull as many as 280 surfers.

With the backing of Centurion Boats, Roswell Marine, The WSIA, Monster Energy and Carolina Watersports the sky is the limit this year for PTH. Follow Robby Maschhaupt on Facebook (@wakesurfingGASMAN) and Instagram (@wakesurfing_gasman) to witness Pass the Handle history in 2019.

The meeting kicked off with a meet and greet hosted by Extreme Trailers that set the stage for the goals of the meeting: to educate and empower the Centurion & Supreme Boats Dealer Network.

“The 100% increase in attendance at this year’s meeting was impressive and a direct result of our increased brand equity, but what stood out to me the most was just how engaged our dealers were,” shared Paul Singer, Centurion & Supreme Boats President. “The meeting rooms were full for every session and all dealers from new to old to perspective participated in every aspect of the event.” Singer concluded, “You could feel the excitement and passion for these brands.”

The Centurion & Supreme Team hosted classes to educate dealers about each brand and boat model with its 2019 marketing initiatives. Sam Dantzler, from Garbage Composites, presented a speech on how to grow your Centurion & Supreme Boats Dealership. Dealers even had the opportunity to run the 2019 Centurion & Supreme boats on the water.  

Dealers, vendors, and the Centurion & Supreme staff strengthened business relationships and developed comradery during the event. Attendees participated in a toy boat building and pool racing competition for a team building challenge hosted by Gatorstep/Canby.

During the last day of the meeting, Centurion & Supreme Boats honored their highest performing dealers at the 2018 Awards Dinner. Singer shared the brands’ vision for 2019, while recognizing the Centurion & Supreme Family for their amazing successes this year.

This combined surfing and wakeboarding phenomena is created by the Opti-V Hull, 5100 pounds of ballast, 6 specifically placed ballast locations and 90-second filling RAMFILL ballast. The Ri237 literally has the World’s best waves, wakes and ride with uniquely better handling and 50% more fuel efficiency. Numbers like these have earned the Ri237 the title of official towboat at the IWWF World Wakeboarding Championships and the World Wake Surfing Championship. The Ri237 also continues as professional athletes’ choice as well as the favorite of weekend warriors on the water. Visit your local Centurion Boats dealer to experience the prefect ride every time. We’ve got your number with the 2019 Centurion Ri237. Let us prove it to you!

“The Ri237 is the only 'have your cake and eat it too' water sports tow boat combining World Championship level wake surfing with the same wakeboarding performance and our design team has made it even better for 2019,” stated Paul Singer, President of Centurion & Supreme Boats. “The new gel coat schemes are gorgeous and the new All Hex vinyl option make it look like a different boat.” Singer continued, “But the best improvement is the new available DropZone Auto Tower by Roswell. I have never seen a tower design more integrated with the look of the boat and it folds flawlessly. As a Centurion that is all things to all people, I didn’t think the Ri237 could get any better, but it did.”

The Ri237 has a newly refined look for 2019 with redesigned Core, Drive and Surf gel coat schemes. These vibrant schemes no longer hide beneath waterline and they have been fine-tuned to make more of an impression even at a distance. The new All Hex vinyl option adds another level of customization to this already uniquely built boat. Now bring more color and texture into the interior of your 2019 Ri237 to match your personality. Centurion boats is a custom boat manufacturer and there is no boat that is a better example of that fact than the 2019 Centurion Ri237.

The 2019 Centurion Ri237 towers above the rest with the new optional DropZone Auto Tower by Roswell with available BombShell Strapless Racks and Large Bimini. This new tower folds quick and smooth with the push of a button thanks to floating Linear Actuators. The DropZone offers even more function with thoughtful touches like surf-side tow points and center hangers. It also provides 40% more strength thanks to the water drop extruded construction that compliments the lines of Centurion boats perfectly. It looks as though the DropZone with BombShell Strapless Racks was designed exclusively for the Centurion Ri237 because it was.

In sports, the sweet spot is everything. Other boats have one sweet spot - a position, typically off the back of the swimstep, where there is a constant push. The Centurion Ri237 offers a spectrum of surf able power from the curl all way up to the face of the wave. This helps beginners learn to throw the rope, as well as seasoned pros master their next World Championship-winning move. This is why the Centurion World Wake Surfing Championship is at 58 personal bests during the competition and counting. The Centurion Ri237 surf sweet spot is as much as 26 feet - more of a sweet surf spectrum than a single spot. This "Best of Both Worlds" wave is the result of purposeful numbers and we’ve got yours.

Centurion’s Opti-V hull design displaces more water, to form the world’s best waves quickly on either side and creates side-to-side balance for perfectly symmetrical wakeboard wakes. With 20 degrees of deadrise at the transom, as much as double the degree of V as any other towboat, Centurion’s Opti-V Hull eliminates the shock of rough water for an amazingly smooth ride. Centurion has the World’s best waves, wake and ride. Centurion’s Opti-V hull is so efficient, even with 20-degrees of deadrise, it cuts through the water with minimal resistance. This is thanks to strakes, chines, rear hull pads and wave enhancement systems that create lift rather than drag. The results? Up to 50 percent more fuel efficiency than comparable boats of other brands.

Adding to the performance and efficiency of the 2019 Ri237 is Centurion’s exclusive RAMFILL ballast. This system is comprised of two sub-floor tooled-in tanks extending from the driver’s seat back to the transom of the boat. These tanks fill with as much as 2550 pounds of water in as little as 90 seconds. That’s a minute and a half to deliver exactly the wakes you want, whether beginner or seasoned pro. Over a ton of weight in less than two minutes and wakes can be adjusted mid-session. Just as important as the speed at a which these tanks fill and their weight is their location. They are evenly distributed through the center of the boat helping to eliminate a nose-high running angle and adding to the efficiency of the Opti-V running surface.

Centurion offers the industry’s largest and best-placed ballast capacities. Depending on the model, you can get up to 5100 pounds of displacement. That means you have the flexibility to dial in the waves and wakes you want. It’s a simple formula: more specifically placed ballast = better waves and wakes.

With as many as six precisely placed ballast locations independently controlled at the dash, Centurion boats create pro-level waves and wakes that can be fine-tuned for any riding style. The proportional front-to-back ballast locations also allow the driver to level the running attitude of the boat for increased visibility and improved handling.

All of this performance will be demonstrated behind the 2019 Centurion Ri237 at the World Wake Surfing Championship presented by GM Marine in Ogden Valley, Utah at the Pineview Reservoir, September 6-8, 2018. Ask your local Centurion Boats dealer how you can secure a spot for the Water Prove It VIP Experience at WWSC 2018 and take advantage of the largest buying incentives you will see throughout the 2019 model year.

As the best seller of the Centurion Boats Ri Series, the Ri237’s high level of performance is expected, but we strive to exceed those expectations at every opportunity. Let us prove it to you.
