Centurion’s new Predator Power Tower (PPT), available on all Ri models, is shown here on the Ri265 with the Warrior Edition Package. It is designed and built by Roswell Marine and unlike any tower ever produced. Be sure to see the Ri265 and the PPT.
Push a button and the PPT’s smart linear actuator drops the tower while keeping the 9-foot Bimini top perfectly flat. Want more shade on an ultra-sunny day? Caught in a downpour or a low bridge? This tower solves those with ease. The tower can position anywhere between all the way up and down, and it can be used for wakesurfing and wakeboarding as well. The Bimini’s unique, rigid exoskeleton frame means no adjusting when raising or lowering, and no stowing it when trailering.
Wakes and waves? Those put up by the Ri265 proved powerful, beautiful, and easily adjusted for a variety of skill levels and preferences thanks to the QuickSurf Pro system and Silent Stinger Wake Plate. At 6,400 pounds, with the ability to take on 5,850 pounds of ballast, the Ri265 displaces a ton of water. The QuickSurf Pro plates work together to shape that displaced water into clean, rideable surfaces with maximum push and a huge pocket for wakesurfers. The Silent Stinger Wake Plate makes the wave steeper and taller or longer and mellower. Control the Ri265’s systems easily via the 12-inch Touch Vision Screens.
The Ri265’s deep gunwales and Spradling vinyl interior with supple padding create comfort. Our test boat featured Centurion’s Warrior Edition Package, which boasts cool topography-inspired stitching. Seating also features a multiposition sliding rear bench, flip-up stadium seat to port, an enclosure that houses a trash chute to starboard, and pop-up backrests integrated into the sun-pad area above the engine.
With its killer wakes and waves, the ultra-versatile (and cool) newly available Predator Power Tower and a Yacht Certified rating from the NMMA, the Ri265 can take potential buyers’ time on the water to new levels of fun with all their family and friends.
- We can’t say enough about the Predator Power Tower.

- All-new windshield looks great.
