2024 Ri265

A Powerhouse on the water a plush retreat inside

The Centurion Ri265 is as long on luxury as it is on waves. The biggest boat in the Ri Series, this 26-foot-six-inch beast offers the irresistible combo of yacht certified luxury seating and the longest, pushiest surf wave with a smooth, rough water ride.


The Ri265 is a powerhouse that will boost your enjoyment whether you’re a casual weekend surfer or a performance zealot who thrives on competition. Its yacht-like qualities will spoil you without impeding world class performance.


Opti-V Hull

With its 20 degrees of deadrise at the transom, the Opti-V hull displaces more water, with less weight, while preserving a great rough water ride. Due to its efficiency, the Opti-V Hull enhances fuel economy and provides a much quieter ride than most boats delivering this type of power. With hook at the transom that helps it push out long, smooth waves and wakes, this hull offers a level riding surface, even in rough water. The seated driver can see over the bow seats while pulling a rider without compromising the waves or wakes thanks to a level running attitude. The hull also deflects rollers so rough water can’t spoil your fun. It’s clear the Opti-V Hull delivers the best waves, wakes and ride - in all conditions.

Discover Opti-V


The interior space is inside-voice quiet, even with a surfer in tow. And there are no compromises necessary to create world class waves. The available RAMFILL² offers as much as 2900 pounds of ballast capacity that fills in 90 seconds, which means less time waiting and more time playing. The nearly maintenance-free high speed ballast system, which we refer to as the “Baller,” eliminates plastic because it has four stainless steel ball valves (two in, two out) bolted through to the flanges. Yes, Centurion ballast is different. It’s optimized for the best possible experience – both outside and inside the boat.

Fuel Efficiency

We love the fact that Centurion offers more than 50% better fuel efficiency than any other water spots boat out there. After all, better fuel efficiency means more time on the water and a less expensive ride for you. You don’t have to take our word for it – the Ri265 offers real time trip and fuel consumption data – a first for performance surf boats. How can we be so much more fuel efficient? It’s the design. Centurion’s Opti-V may be a modified deep-v hull designed to maximize displacement, but the running surface has a lot of lift built into it. This eliminates drag and creates balance for less resistance, meaning the engine doesn’t have to work as hard to push a Centurion through the water whether it is weighted to ride or set-up for a cruise.

Discover Savings


We have a nickname for the available RAMFILL² ballast system. We call it the “Baller.” It’s a nearly maintenance free system that offers 2900 pounds – plus of ballast capacity that fills in 90 seconds. With its four stainless steel two-inch valves (two in two out) bolted through to the flanges, anything plastic is eliminated. The large sub-floor tanks extend from the helm to the transom on each side of the lounge. This just adds to the well-distributed ballast placement and helps create longer waves with consistent push from the face to the curl crash. Baller, indeed.

DropZone Tower

The aggressive DropZone Auto Tower folds up quickly and smoothly at the push of a button. Custom made for Centurion by Roswell the DropZone comes standard on the Ri230. The DropZone tower folds down, thanks to its two electric linear actuators, in just 14 seconds and opens back up in a mere 17 seconds, insuring you waste no prep time before you ride. The DropZone has built-in Bluetooth capabilities with choice of stereo option, offers both regular and goofy side tow points and Centurion-branded hangers in the center that are ideal for organizing ropes or drying vests and towels. Optional Centurion exclusive BombShell 2.0 Strapless Swivel Racks have an adjustable clamping shell design padded in R-Flex Suspension Technology to cushion a secured board up to 23 inches wide.

Big on power, Big on luxury, Big on performance. The Ri265 is Visibly Different.

Top level professionals and casual riders alike love training behind the Ri 265.

Watch Walk-Through

Touch Revo HD

All our Centurion 2024 Ri models have the Revo Side by Side 12” x 12” Touch Vision HD Dash, which has graphical control over nearly every boat system. You could call it the brains of the boat. It offers an Inspection Mode to toggle-off Auto Drain for ease of inspection at Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) checkpoints. It can easily control the optional QuickSurf Pro, as many as seven independent ballast areas including RAMFILL², all lighting functionality, including optional RGB control, Wet Sounds Stereo volume control and even GPS mapping. The right screen display changes with these menu options, while the left display remains constant with instant access to ZeroOff speed control, engine RPM, the ROV’s bow and stern cameras plus real time trip and fuel data.

Range of View

The left side of the Ri Series standard Revo Dash is occupied by Centurion’s Range of View (ROV) System. This 12-inch Revo touch screen lets you toggle between the bow and stern camera while overlaying real-time fuel usage data. This useful information is offered exclusively through the Centurion ROV system and won’t be found on other boats. With the bow and stern cameras, drivers can see clearly at water level in front of the bow as well as behind the boat when backing up. This signature Centurion functionality gives the driver a range of views without forcing them to change seats or stand up, adding a level of safety not previously seen in water sports tow boats.


Inside the Ri265 is a PCM engine that is 100% freshwater cooled. The 26.5 foot behemoth doesn’t hunger for power and the 100% closed cooling of the ZZ6 engine offers both longevity and easy winterization for you. The ZZ6 6.2L GM is new generation direct-inject engine that gets riders up with 465 lb-ft of torque thanks to Centurion’s PowerPull System that combines a specially matched gear reduction with a 4-blade 17” x 15.5” prop. The ZZ6 engine and the Ri265 represent the essence of Centurion revolution innovated for wake surfing.


New for 2024, the Ri265 offers a stitching accent available in seven different GoreTenera thread colors. Also new, the Battery Management System with PDM Reset Panel has three Wireless Lay-flat Phone Chargers (one in the glovebox and two side panel cup holders) and a Wireless Clamping Phone Charger at the dash. Passengers have more options than ever and with room for a yacht-full that comes in handy. Gear can be stowed beneath hinged, shocked lounge seats, trash can be put in the new Walkthrough Trash Shoot on the port side or the trash bin on the driver’s side rear-facing lean back. Seating layout can be customized with an optional flip-up lean back on the passenger’s side, as well as standard five-position slide seat with optional plug-in lean backs that can face forward or back. Two ratchet hinged Flip Up Transom Stadium Seats lay flat to make a comfy sun pad when stowed.


Centurion builds custom boats and that is particularly noticeable on the exterior. It’s not just the deep lines and lustrous finish. The Ri265 offers four different gel coat schemes. You can truly customize the exterior, with as many as 37 different gel coat colors and as many as six different areas on the exterior of the boat – making millions of unique color combinations possible. For the 2024 model year, Centurion has extended this optional customization with the addition of a unique, Colored Lit “Centurion” Billet Aluminum Badge. You can choose from 18 different colors to surround the lit Centurion lettering. The color you choose for the billet aluminum surround will make the color you choose for your other optional Colored PTM Vents, Designators & A-Pillars pop and there will be no mistaking your Centurion on the water.
