who saw the release today? Any thoughts, personly I think the lines of the boat look pretty sick and the chance at getting into a centurion for less than the new RI's is pretty exciting.

What's the pitch on the FI? Compared to RI?

FI is RI running surface but more "budget friendly" with a la carte options. Supposed to retail in the high 90's well equipped, low 100K with downfire audio.

I think it looks sweet. Got to ride an RI257 a couple weeks back and it was awesome, but too rich for my blood, this may work.

Any wakeboarding wake pics yet? Because that's what it all comes down to for me.

Correct Craft is really doing a great job. The new Fi Centurion along with their Ri series last year and the new Nautique GS24 are really strong offerings.

Looks and style are def preference issues, and I haven't always been a fan of Centurion styling and such, but this is a good looking boat. Well done.

Nice looking boat and it has a lot f stock ballast. But man those towers are just not doing it for me. CC should consider adding their tower to these boats.

I have never been a Centurion fan mainly because I'm not a fan of the local dealer and because they are always just surf boats. But if this one puts out a great wakeboard wake I would consider it.

Brief but you get a visual. Also the BoardCo guy was at the unveiling and said the wakeboard wake is really good.

We did a blog post on this boat that will hopefully answer some questions. Feel free to shoot off any others and I will do what I can to help out.

The most common question is about the wakeboard wake. It is great for beginners with no ballast (clean and crisp with no weight at all) and absolutely unreal when fully loaded. With the Quick Launch system the boat will plane to wakeboard speed with all 4,850 lbs. (depending on elevation, prop and what engine) and maintain a clean, boosty wake with all the ballast. It is ridiculous.

nice!! exactly what I was hoping CC would do with it. looks like a well thought out rig. have talked about ripping all the carpet out of my ballast/storage areas many times and putting bedliner or something similar down. look great.
