  1. Hey crew! After 15 years of filling up 3500lbs of fat sacs and using a wake shaper on my dad’s ‘94 MC Prostar 205, I was finally able to convince him to go in on a new boat with me. We ended up picking up a 2021 Fi23 60hrs for a great price and just got it launched on our lake a few days ago. I have to say, this boat is an absolute dream! I can finally fit my whole family and kids on the boat and not lose 1.5 hrs filling and tearing down the boat! Can’t wait to get a killer surf season out of it this year! Anyway, so far everything seems to be working great on it except I can’t quite seem to figure out the stereo/accessory system, or the wireless charger phone holder. When I received the boat last fall I recall the charger not working right away but eventually my phone picked it up, but now with my iPhone 13, it doesn’t seem to want to charge, even with the case off. The other issue is the stereo accessory mode. It seems the stereo should work when the key switch is to the left but it doesn’t seem to turn the stereo on. There’s an accessory button to the left but it doesn’t seem to do much either. At one point the music randomly stayed on but we couldn’t figure out how it happened. Perhaps there’s a secret combination of the accessory button and key switch we're missing? Also if the stereo comes on with the ignition turned left, how do you control the volume without the dash? Any tips would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
  2. Hey all! First time poster here. I have been researching wake boats since last summer, and we will be ready to buy our first boat soon, probably just AFTER this summer, unfortunately. After doing almost a year of research, all the pros and cons and prices I can find between all the makes and models, the best boat for me and my family we have decided is the FI23. My plan is to get a build slot for a 2023. But I have a quick question. Do any of you know what the actual MSRP is for a stripped, zero option Fi23 for 2022 or 2023? There are a lot of "included" features for the boat that doesn't seem to affect price at all, but lots of add-ons that do. Like going from the 400 to the 450, 18ich wheels on the trailer, ramfill, etc. I ask because my boat dealer is telling me that the MSRP of a stripped/zero option Fi23 is 190k, and that doesn't sound right. Thanks all!
  3. Fi23

    I have a thread already for a Supreme ZX232, as that is our primary target for a used boat. But we have had a deal fall through already and may have to look at a 2018 Fi23. They are a little more money than I want to spend, but….how do they compare wake wise. I know the easy answer is the Fi23 is way better, but is it? I know there are a ton of features I love on the boat (tech, fit finish, ram fill, ballast, etc). finally, in my brief search I can’t see heaters listed on most I see….are heaters standard or optional on a 2018 Fi23? as always, thank you. I appreciate your feed back.
  4. Hi Everyone! First post for a soon to be Centurion owner -current boat (MC XT series) is sold pending funds. I am trying to decide/finalize my order between the Fi21 and Fi23 and sure would appreciate some real-world advice ideally from folks who own them or maybe even have spent time in both. We boat on a big lake (50,000 acres) so it does get some boat traffic. We are generally a small crew (2@30% of time, 4@40% of time, and 6-10+ 30% of time at most). We do boat from our dock so if there's not enough room folks can stay behind, and we don't need room to take everything along for the day. So here are my questions on the Fi21 vs Fi23: -Overall size. Does the Fi21 feel small? Does the Fi23 feel big? Will the Fi23 feel too big for us unless we have 6 or more? -Bow space specifically. Is the bow space in the Fi21 really big enough for 2 adults to be comfortable (stretch legs out nicely on a long ride)? Any more than 2? How much larger is the Fi23? -Ride quality. We hear the opti V is awesome and I demoed an Fi23, but without more time it's hard to be sure. Do both the 21 and 23 ride great and handle boat traffic, or does the 23 outperform it significantly? -Surf wave. During the times we have the crew of 4 or less will the Fi21 actually produce a better surf wave for us than the Fi23 (because the Fi23 would need more weight to get down)? -Resale value/attractiveness. I have the impression that the Fi23 outsells the Fi21 by at least 8-1 just based on ads I see. Is the sale market for the 23 alot better or is this not accurate? -engine choice. I'm at 600ft above sea level. If I go with the Fi23 is the regular engine OK (409HP) or do I need to consider the HO? -prop choice. We'll mostly surf or cruise, and I'm not a speed demon. Long cruises at 20-25mph are the rule. Rarely if ever go any faster than 30. Go with stock prop or change it to what? -Is extra lead needed or not in either boat? (i hope the answer is no but had to ask) -Gatorstep. We are in the south - average 85-95 degrees in summer. Does black gatorstep get hot on the floor or swim platform? -Vinyl. We are in the south - average 85-95 degrees in summer. Does any upholstery color on the top surfaces other than white get hot? Put another way, what's the darkest shade in the following sequence that doesn't get unbearably hot to bare skin (all hex: white frost, whisper grey, tan, stone grey, mocha, charcoal)? Thanks for any advice.
  5. Looking for some help. Just bought a brand new Fi23 with 450 motor and surfing at 5500ft in elevation. It has the high alt prop 16x13. the boat has the all the additional Plug an Play Ballast. This boat will not get to surf speed with two 200lb men and two 120 lb women and full Ballast. I have to dump the two Bow tanks and about 30% of the Ram fill to get to 10.8 MPH. Is this normal?? I would think this boat should be able to surf with full ballast.?? Right?? Should I be looking for a new Prop? I would think the 450 should be plenty of power but its not getting us there....My dealer is NO HELP! Very upsetting! Any info would be much appreciated! Sold my X35 MC to buy this boat. I have Lots of surf experience in other boats, just new to Centurion.
  6. Hey everyone, My family currently has a 2005 Enzo SV230, but we just placed an order for a '19 Fi23 this past weekend! After doing some reading around here, we decided to skip the downfire system and add some Wetsounds speakers. We are only going with a pair of speakers and will be using clamp mounts to get them out of the walking path (me and many of my family members are 6'3" +). Our dealer is suggesting that a pair of Rev 8's would be plenty, but I'm leaning towards a pair of Rev 10's. We normally have audio running when we're surfing or cruising, but not for tubing, wakeboarding, etc. mainly because our current setup can't reach back that far without deafening everyone in the boat. Would a pair of Rev 10's be overkill?

  8. Hey everyone, I'm new to the "crew" but I'm excited to get some thoughts. I'm putting in an order for an Fi23 (yes, I'm unbelievably excited!) We will be primarily surfing, but will definitely do some wakeboarding too. So I've added the essentials like QuickSurf, RAMFILL, Silent Stinger, and p-n-p, but I'm wondering about CATS. With the new hull design I'm wondering how much impact CATS will have and if I'll regret not having it. I know that there's not a ton of experience with the new hull design but I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hey guys, Here is a video we put together showing wakeboarding, wakesurfing and water skiing behind the same boat in one take with no edits, cuts or anything else. If you want to see what the stock setup of the new 2018 boats looks like for all 3 sports this will give you a solid idea. Hope you like it! http://www.mmwatersports.com/boat-performance/surf-ski-wakeboard-one-boat-5-minutes/
