Rumble. Rumble. Rumble. Brace yourself,
because the Avalanche might overwhelm you. After its forceful debut
in 2002, including its appearance on the cover of our Boat
Buyers Guide last year, the Avalanche is roaring back for
For both the hard-core wakeboarder and
the recreational rider dreaming of more extreme action, the
Avalanche is true to its name when it comes to its force-of-nature
power and wakes. The precision handling, smooth ride and
well-sustained speed come from years of development, resulting in
the refined V-bottom hull design. The Centurion designers
implemented reduced chines that allow the bottom surface to
penetrate the water more deeply, kicking up a clean wake
that’s steep and boots you right up.
Aside from its wakeboarding performance,
the standout feature on the Avalanche is its walk-through transom,
which allows easy access to the swim platform. No need to dive over
the rear seats, and the configuration also makes getting to the
engine compartment simpler.
Drivers and passengers are taken care of
with a plush, pivoting pilot’s chair and a large playpen bow
area. With all those extra people in the bow and stretched out in
the seating of the wide 100-inch beam, you’ll need all kinds

walk-through area provide room for all the equipment of a gaggle of

To really tailor the Avalanche to your
skills and sensibilities, outfit it with one of the three Storm
packages. The Storm I comprises special graphics and gelcoat as
well as a tower and center ballast tank. The Storm II has all that
plus dual rear ballast tanks, four-speaker Sony stereo, CD changer,
amp and subwoofer, two board racks, second battery and wire
harness. Or truly load up with the Storm III, with the above
options plus an adjustable trim tab and Perfect Pass Wakeboard Pro
to maximize your ride.
The Avalanche is emerging as the bedrock of Centurion’s
wakeboarding series. Get ready to rumble.
The low-noise, quick-filling ballast system can have you out on
the water in under five minutes.
The Avalanche’s spotlight interior feature is its
walk-through transom, making engine-inspection and swim-platform
access easier than ever.
With above-average responsiveness, it holds speed without effort
and tracks like a rail-rider.
Great wakes because of years of R&D, which have led to a
V-bottom hull that carves up the water like a pro.
