Seems a little..... excessive for wake boats? Regardless, it's badass. Wonder how hard this thing is to make turn. Looks like it was developed with a Centurion on it.

yah, why unless the weight of the boat really needs it. I couldn't imagine having to make a sharp turn especially in reverse at a ramp or something. Seems like the axles would have a real hard time.

More moving parts to maintain and if you trailer long distances more money for tolls.

Stupid.. like why do you need 4 axles?

I see a 50 nor-tech with only a tri-axle lol

I bet that sucker eats tires on the front and rear axles... Sharp looking nonetheless.

This is most certainly the target. Promo boats will likely ride on this as well. Just silly though.

I was just thinking this trailer was designed for someone with alot of money to spend on tires.

Either way, I saw a centurion that was a MONSTER on a triple axle recently, I am guessing this would be a great trailer for it. A 12000# towing capacity would be a good thing for that as well.

Too big and too rich for my blood....

Notice it says "centurion" on the trailer already. Bro barge central!!!!

For the Bros who like to take their 4K in ballast home with them.

I can't wait until someone calls me and wants nine tires and wheels!

I don't see why a 6-7K lb ski boat would need this. A triple axle is overkill.

I don't see any advantages to this setup.

Before we know it, there may be a BRO- DOZER 2.0 with the ford truck. He switches trucks and modifies them like you do boats.....

I figured you would love seeing that trailer. :D

The only advantage I could see would be reduced tongue weight. Otherwise what a waste of money except for the poser crowd.

That thing I bet is a cinch to manuever around the tight launch ramps.




Bro-dozer. That's priceless right there



And ***. How did I miss Aric gaining mod status ? Go in for shoulder surgery and place goes to hell !!!!!

I cant stand loud truck exhausts, especially when towing.

Jokes on you, Ive got lights in more than just the wheel wells ;)

Once Aric gets that diesel f150 he'll be rolling coal in his bro-dozer. Better get the bed mounted stacks!

Ha, the bro one was hilarious. Here's a few more.

1. For the new 30' surf boat.
2. For those who can't be bothered to empty/fill their ballast and just run lead all the time.
3. Less chance of trailer when the bro pulls it with his little SUV.

Aric checked out a boat for me earlier this year and I have never even met him before. He will always be forum Royalty in my book.

He's still closer to being banned than being a mod. :D

He's worn both hats already, iirc.:D

Aric was a MOD? .... Maybe a MOD like that kid in HighSchool with Dark hair combed over and a trenchCoat..MOD...that kind of MOD?....like a 1980s Cure fan MOD?

Four axles is all fun and games till the roads are wet/slippery and someone is trying to turn into a parking lot towing this thing with a SRW light weight truck and the trailer and boat just keep pushing them straight on ahead. Ending in a nice jackknife situation. With 4 axles I'm sure there isn't much tongue weight left. So I'm sure some dumba$$ with a slightly lifted Silverado half ton would be hooked to it thinking "what could go wrong"!

I just really don't care for Centurion's... or quad axle trailers on wake boats.

I think that is just overkill. I could see a triple trailer on a 25-26 ft wakeboat, but a quad trailer.....

They don't even use quad trailer on big center console boats.

Lotsa tire wear. Those back two tires won't last long.

Ha! I think that post is where I first saw that monster. I'm in the same boat (heh), I'd probably go Tige before I thought about going down the Centurion route...

Ramfill is pretty awesome, unfortunately the rest of a Centurion is not. I sad in one of them, don't remember the model, but it was pretty large, and the vinyl just felt cheap and not well fitted. Even more so than my 11 year old Supra.

Has that changed since they were bought by CC?

A good family friend in Florida has one and loves it. I sat in one a few years ago and I felt the same way. Curious if that changed any recently.

Hmm... this was probably 2-3 years ago, so can't say for sure on today's models, but it didn't leave a great impression on me for a 100k+ boat. MC or CC all the way at that price point.
