I peep in on it here and there on my wife’s FB, when I heard about it I asked her to join. I rarely look at it but she keeps me up to date on things. 

I like seeing the pics people post on it that don’t get posted here.

Fi23 is a monster wake wise. Power tower is a option. Drop zone speakers are similar to downfire but has three 8" drivers. No wetsounds for Centurion but the 19 supreme will have a quad rev10 option.  Also a New model from supreme is coming that I think will get everyone talking.  Might be the rebirth of the brand and rumors are opti v hull

My wife and I were set on an Fi23 or Ri237.  The info I have on the new Supreme has me very intrigued.  I’ll do another Supreme based off the info I have on the new model once I see it when revealed.  I did hear opti-v hull as well.  I like hearing about the quad rev10’s. I have quad rev8’s on the current one and love the Wetsounds....

Dam too bad. 

I agree, I don’t actively check fb. I did join the groups this week, but I prefer the forum format vs endlessly scrolling.

I was thinking the same thing!  Big difference is the tower, I thought there would for sure be debate on that - looks, racks, speakers. I see the garage specs have it at 29.5 feet long!

Couple questions -

 

Who the hell can afford these boats, and also why do they say 25 feet long when it's almost 30?

1). Boat financing. It's possible to finance a $100k boat for up to 20 years. With a decent down payment, it can make it fairly attainable regarding monthly payments. With that being said, the prices of boats these days is pretty ridiculous.

2). The garage specs are the dimensions of the boat while on the trailer so you can get an idea of whether or not the trailer will fit in, well, your garage. The boat itself is 25 feet but the trailer is 30.

In the picture on Centurions website, they indicate that the boat itself is 30 feet, so I guess it's just a bad picture. (To see what I am talking about, click this link, scroll down and look on the left: https://centurionboats.com/boats/fi25/). I understand now that when they say Garage specs they mean with the trailer.

 

I thought these boats cost more than 100K to be honest, that's not too horrible a price. But, if someone has to finance it for 20 years to afford it, they shouldn't be buying the boat to begin with. Financing 100K for 20 years at the average lifetime return of the market turns that money into 450K. I feel like, if you can't afford it financing for 5 years or less, you should look at a used boat or something. Within a 20 year period there are going to be some major maintenance costs (I had to replace an engine year 8). 

 

Just my thoughts, the boat itself is gorgeous.

You could die before even using the boat.

They do cost more than $100k. A new FI23 with the options you would want and trailer would probably be around $120k... depending on what you get for options the price could be lower/higher than that. FI25 would be more than that, tho I have not looked at pricing to know how much more.

Could y'all share what options y'all feel are necessary for the Fi23.

Specifically could H20 and Darkside  share what y'all optioned your Fi23 with and with all the options would you be close to an ri237 in terms of cost?

@Darkside has a 257...I actually saw a fi23 in the wild at the 1600acre lake we are at almost every weekend.  Helped him dial his wave in. He was grinning! He has a gorgeous black hull with red boat. Nice!

Brought the Fi home today. We did purchase it from Pat and his crew at Northwest Boat Sports in Oregon City.  Very attentive hard working team. They are all ready to step up to help their customers. Ian took us for a demo to show how to set it up for wakesurfing awesomeness. Brian was great helping with the details. It has been a pleasure to do business with them.  Looks like we might have light wind tomorrow so hopefully will get on the water. Picked up a new Soulcraft with the boat so ready to step up our game. All the best, Hein & Kim

@Hein, She looks fabulous. I've always enjoyed your mods on that old boat but this one right here....  Might not need anything except 1-driver and 1 rider. Maybe you can mod the truck in the meantime. Congrats.

Love the colors and interior on that boat. I was thinking of doing that color way but NWBS beat me to it. So clean and classy .

We upgrade to Michelin LTX tires (stiffer sidewall) for the truck and will get some Airlift bags to level out the rear while towing. They are due to release a kit for our 2017 Titan in May. Truck actually did very well towing. We have a weigh safe hitch and it showed 700lbs tongue weight. We had NWBS put 400 lbs of lead in the back of the boat to compensate for smaller crew and to reduce tongue weight a little bit.

We are planning on a rear view camera instead of mirror for the boat. Hoping to work out that install this weekend. Will start a new thread on upgrades. Can't leave anything stock. It's half the fun.

All the best,

Hein
