Agree—I would take a good look too if I had a dealer. They’re pretty sexy!

As pointed out by other WW members, the deep V hull found on Centurion doesn't make them ride better than the holy grail Supra lineup

Asking for a friend....

Your posts are hard to follow. Never said they ride better, never offered Supra as a holy grail. Simply said: they ride nicely. They’re dry, I like how it does. But hey, I like your spirit, even if you aren’t quite spot on!

This thread is funny. I go on big Powell trips where most of the best boats are represented. If ridden and driven most of them. First off the Supra SA/SE series is phenomenal and are great surf and wake boats. Nautique G23 is a better surf boat than the G25 but the G25 isn't a slouch and is preferable in a place like Lake Powell where the water can get extremely rough in a hurry. With that said the G's aren't great rough water boats. The 'Bu's rank slightly lower than the boats listed above but they are still worthy and I wouldn't kick them out of bed for eating crackers.

With all that said the Ri257 is the king of surf boats and right now is the gold standard. It does have the best rough water ride and the surf wakes are unsurpassed. The truth is nothing quite comes close to the size, length, push, and adjust-ability. The only knock I have is there are so many wave tuning options that it can get a little overwhelming. However, once you figure it out it's easy to dial and you can save the presets.

Using sales numbers to gauge a boat's performance is stupid. Those numbers are affected by the number and locations of dealerships and production capacity. Pavati has one of the coolest wake boats on the planet but they will come close to selling as many boats as Mastercraft or Malibu.
