What about those million dollar mega yachts? We're not talking wave per dollar since the paragon is in the discussion.

The tape measure does not lie and says centurion IS number 1 AT 36FT BEHIND THE BOAT. Have yet to see a longer wave to date. Could only imagine what another 3-4k of fatsacs would do to that boat too.

Thatís the myth I was hanging on to too. Resigned to the idea that centurion had a better wave...but couldnít bring myself to like the boat itself.

But, finally got to surf a bunch of different Centurions last year, and the wave is good- donít get me wrong, but itís in the same ballpark as the X series boats (blows the G out of the water). If the X series boats ran 5,500 pounds of ballast like the centurion- they would be every bit as good, if not substantially better.

Just havenít made a video of it yet.

This is with only stock ballast and wedge on lift and only 4 people in boat. She easily gets Over 30’ back and recovers with no pumping the board. https://www.amazon.com/photos/shared...MR7R-i_4zMI2lG

Challenge accepted. I can easily run that length or further in a new XStar, so long as I bump it up to 12.5-13mph...... Which seems to be about the speed they are running. Engine is definitely screaming more than my star would be.

Sadly, I won't have my boat until early august

Hate to be that guy....but it is what it is. I definitely want to try that out, and from what I have seen from my XStars at higher surf speeds, 36' will be easy.

Agreed... with my wife, 500 lbs of lead and another 800 lbs of sacs, bump the speed in our star, I would assume we can get at least that far back as well without much pumping to get back to the boat. This would be 5400 lbs, so similar to the 5100 the Ri237 claims for s similar length, fuel weight and dry weight boat. I'll get some photos here over memorial weekend, see what we can do.

We've also got the entire family out for a trip after the 4th this year. I'll jam 15 of them into the star and see what kind of mess we can make.. I bet I could get that far back at 200 lbs with 2000+ lbs of human ballast that would put us at around 7000 lbs of ballast or more if we fill some sacs as well. Not a ton to compare too, but the new generation MC are pretty amazing, the star and the 24 that I have been behind don't leave much to be desired that's for sure.
