I’m new to the forum, and to centurion boats. We have a 2006 Mastercraft x30 with go surf assist and ~1800 lbs plug and play ballast in the rear lockers. She puts out a decent wave, but it takes forever to fill (even with bigger pumps installed), and the wave could definitely be longer/taller with a larger sweet spot. As my whole family has grown to love surfing, I think we’re due for an upgrade/update, though my wallet is pissed at me for saying that—we’re currently not talking... I’ve enjoyed the x30. Solid boat. Comfortable. Reliable. Does a lot of things well. Dealer (Utah Watersports) is close and provides excellent service. Several questions for the centurion boat owners out there, especially those with an Fi23: Understanding all boats are going to have a few issues here and there, how reliable has your centurion been compared to other boats you’ve owned, or compared to boats owned by those you know? I’ve read a couple horror stories in your forum about the Ri line. What issues have you had (especially in the Fi series)? How would you rate build quality (squeaks, rattles, screws backing out, seat hinges, integrity of things bolted to the boat, racks, gelcoat etc.) compared to other makes? Would you buy a Centurion (especially an Fi) again? If not, what would you rather have for around $125K? I don’t mind paying great money for great things. I feel paying north of 100K is great money, and I want the boat to be commensurate with that price in terms of quality and reliability. Time is my only enemy. My kids are growing fast. Like you all, I don’t want to spend precious summer days broken down in the middle of a lake, and wasting what few summers I have left with them with a boat in the shop. Appreciate your time in responding, as well as your insight and perspective.
