First boat for me and I have been really pleased with it. We ride 4 days a week from May through October. This is our second season with it and so far no major complaints. My only issue is the stock ballast system. I can't seem to bleed mine. If air gets in it, it is a pain to get it out. Other than that, great boat with monster power!
I have added a 370 pound sac in the front ski locker and 400 pounds in the rear locker on reversible pumps and the wake with that and driver and observer is very good. It's pretty steep, which is common to narrow beam inboards but it's a big solid kicker. We surf behind the boat with the same ballast setup, you need minimum 2 people on the favourite side and then you can surf it all day. I'ts a good boat, looks good, solid, nice... My only complaint would be the gawdy graphics combinations people seem to choose with Centurion but you can really have whatever you want if you do a factory order.

Great crossover boat between skiing and wakeboarding. Wake not recommended for someone who wants to go pro at boarding, but great for the average rider. Ski wake is amazing though. Storage is limited because it is a direct drive. No problems yet with the engine, but the greatest thing about this boat is the price, it was defianatly worth every penny. Not to mention the great options on the graphics, this boat is pretty sweet.
