Merced, CA - Centurion Boats is proud to announce the acceptance as the official towboat of the 2014 World Wake Surfing Championship.

The revolutionary CATS (Centurion Articulating Tracking System) technology will be employed to provide adjustability for the perfect wave for the world’s best wake surfers whether skim or surf styles are preferred.
Bryan Holland, Centurion’s VP of Worldwide Sales said, “With the explosive growth in FX44 sales this year due to the technology such as the new FX hull, RAM and CATS, I just knew we had to tow the event with this model. The SV Enzos are tried and true, but the biggest wave available is exclusive to the FX44.”
