Centurion Announces Patents for Select 2017MY Boats


Centurion Boats has introduced its patented Silent Stinger Wake Plate as an option on the its 2017 Ri217, Ri237 and Ri257 models.

Centurion offers the option to route a boat’s exhaust through the center wake plate. This allows the exhaust to be tumbled with water that is being forced into the Silent Stinger Wake Plate through a bottom-mounted induction port when the boat is under way. The water is said to naturally dampen the exhaust noise, for a quieter day on the water.

The boat builder says passengers can carry on conversations at a natural level without shouting as well as enjoy their music above the noise of the engine.

Silent Stinger Wake Plate is also said to disrupt the exhaust’s path in the water eliminating any interference it can cause to your waves and wakes. Centurion says Veteran wakeboarders and wake surfers can perform tricks without worrying about an unpredictable exhaust line interfering with their wakes and waves.

“Silence may indicate precision, but the true benefits of the new Silent Stinger Wake Plate are a conversation quiet lounge as well as a smooth wave free from exhaust turbulence.” says Centurion and Supreme Boats President, Paul Singer. “I could not be more pleased with our engineering team on the development of this innovation and the fact that it is so ground-breaking we have earned two patents on it.”

Centurion is a Correct Craft family brand along with Nautique, Supreme, Bass Cat, Yar-Craft, and SeaArk boat companies, Pleasurecraft Marine Engine Group, and Aktion Parks.
