Centurion Boats Fineline Industries
Since 1979, Centurion World Headquarters have
been located in Merced, California. It is here
that Centurion began its long tradition of innovation
and attention to detail. Originally a "place
to build boats," it has become a forum for
designers and craftsmen to talk shop. From the
computer controlled CNC machines to the on-site
lake testing of each boat, Fineline Industries
West has set a new standard for watersport boat
production. Now in 2004 Fineline West has grown
even bigger. A new factory has been built to compliment
to old facility. Fineline West is expected to
double its production on the western United States
with the addition of this 65,000 sq ft. facility.
In February 2000, Fineline Industries expanded Centurion
Boats across the United States with the opening of a
state-of-the-art facility in Woodland, North Carolina.
We were fortunate enough to find a 40-acre site that
allows room for an onsite boat test lake facility complete
with a record tournament-approved slalom course, and
a lakefront housing development for key personnel. Fineline
East houses the most modern boat construction process
in the watersports industry. Now with over 100 dealers
in the Unites States and Canada, Centurion keeps expanding
to give each of our customers the greatest boat buying
experience, no matter where they are.
Centurion’s design and construction is innovative
and unmatched in both strength and reliability. I.C.S.
(Integrated Composite System) is the most advanced watersport
boat construction method. A 100% composite design that
sacrifices nothing makes each boat as strong as a tank
but also light in weight.
I.C.S. is a three-piece construction process that includes
the hull, inner liner and deck. Centurion boats, unlike
automobiles, are made from the outside-in. Gelcoat colors
and full-contour graphics are sprayed into the mold
of the hull, inner liner and deck. On a Centurion boat,
all pinstripes and graphics (with the exception of the
boat name) are a part of the boat’s gelcoat. This
ensures the longest life for graphics and accents.
Every Centurion built is vigorously lake-tested at
one of our private
lakes. During lake tests, the engine is fine-tuned,
tightened and speed adjustments are made using the finest
and GPS technology.
As the final touch, each boat is waxed and buffed,
creating the perfect gelcoat shine and fabulous color
Centurion is known for. Decals are then placed in their
respective positions and your Centurion is ready to
be delivered to you anywhere in the world. We are never
content to rest on our laurels at Centurion. Because
of our efforts to refine and improve our boats, we will
always produce the highest quality boat for you.
