Looking for potential solutions to a problem I have. This summer, the tower on my 2009 Air Falcon V broke in two while just driving along the lake on a choppy day, not sure if this is an isolated case of if anyone else has had that happen. I am now looking into how I can solve this issue, but after talking with my local boat dealer and maintenance guy, Centurion no longer makes the tower I have and my only option unless I can find a used tower is having the whole tower kit taken out and replaced with a whole new tower setup (refiberglassed and everything) which will run close to $9,000 to have done. I don't know the specific name of the tower, nor do I have a picture of my boat on me at the moment, but it is the same style tower that is on a stock 2010 centurion enzo sv230, its all black, sleek looking with a curvy design. Does anyone have any ideas of where I could find this same tower? Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.

If it doesn’t have the bars that come down to in front of the windshield it most likely is the Gladiator tower. If it has the bars that comes down in front if the windshield this it is most likely the Evo.

@WakeDoc Yeah, it is that tower. Any idea of solutions for replacement? My uncle is a welder and rewelded it for me just to give it a shot, went out this weekend for the first time and it already cracked so back to square one on it.

The Roswell Aviator Pro is the best aftermarket tower right now. Pricey but I think worth it.

I think we are currently going through the exact same issue. I have a 2009 Elite V C4 with an old school 4 post mount tower. It has broken and I am looking for a replacement. I started a thread on here several days ago and someone replied with a post regarding their conversion to a Roswell Aviator Pro. It looked sick but was costly considering $5,000 for the tower and additional work to patch up fiberglass.

I will keep you in the loop if I can source an OEM tower for this make and model. My boat is pictured below, it may be the same tower you are looking for.

Thats the Tribal tower. Where did it break? I have the same tower on my 08 Avy.

I have an OEM Evolution tower with speakers at my house if anyone wants that option.

@Troy, the top portion of my tower got severely bent from being crunched in the boat lift. The bottom half that actually connects to the boat has not been impacted.

      Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon.  I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues.  I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor.  My question is regarding the need to replace the foam.  Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam.  Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?
