Are you a wake sports enthusiast? If you’re looking for an affordable way to get out on the river or lake for some fun, the “S-Series” from Supreme brings you a “value-class” boat with all the features and functionality you need for wakesurfing and wakeboarding.
This model comes with 4,800-lbs of ballast and full wake shaping capability. It’s a great choice for an entry-level wake sports boat, with many of the same features as boats twice the cost.
The design of the 2022 Supreme S240 gives you more bang for your buck. This 24-foot tow sports boat comes with a design specifically for wake sports. You get comfortable seating, excellent handling and performance, and an affordable price tag.
The 2022 Supreme S240 features a higher running surface and freeboard with a hybrid bow for optimal water displacement and wake creation. Supreme really outdid themselves with the modifications over predecessors to the S240.
The S240 offers drivers a more traditional sheerline, providing a sleek, stylish look to the boat when it’s sitting in the water. The seats feature Outside the Box vinyl, preventing hot seats after spending time in the sun, and UV resistant for long service life.
There’s plenty of storage space, and the adjustable ballast paired with the QuickSurf tab system allows you to create any size or shape wake you desire.
The 2022 Supreme S240 gets its power from the PCM GM Marine 6.0L HO engine mounted to the underside of the transom, leaving the stern open for easy access to the water.
The GM Marine engine has a 450-HP output, allowing for high-speed performance when cruising and huge wake production for riders.
It’s a high-economy engine built for performance, but it sips slowly at fuel for more time out on the water.
Ballast and Hull
The 2022 Supreme S240 features design and construction with a six-position ballast system distributing the weight evenly throughout the bat at a touch of a button. The high-speed Lenco rams powering the QuickSurf tab system allow easy transferal or mirroring to the opposite side of the vessel in less than 2-seconds.
With the 2022 Supreme S240, the rider has a choice of wake styles to suit their session. The Stinger Wake Plate or Silent Stinger Plate combined with the six-position ballast system, and the ZerOff speed control gives you full customization of the wake’s size, shape, and length.
The 2022 Supreme S240 features the EZ-V hull design, with a very similar look to the “Opti-V hull” used in its sister company, Centurion. Centurion makes the best wake sports boats available, and Supreme offers you the same hull design benefits in a more affordable model.
The hull features the same 20-degree deadrise in the transom as you get on the Ri230 from Centurion – the class-leading boat in this category. As a result, you can expect a smooth ride in rough water and ultimate variability in wake production.
Like the Centurion series of wake boats, the Supreme S240 comes with the legendary “QuickSurf” system, paired with 4,800-lbs of adjustable ballast to suit any riding style. This system is the ideal choice for natural or goofy footers, allowing you to choose which side you want to ride. The transom-mounted surf plate creates lift on a specific side of the boat, shuttling the displacement to the opposite side.
The center-mounted surf plate features fine-tuning of the wake shape, length, and height, giving you full control over the settings through the onboard touchscreen controls. When you find the right wake shape, save it in your settings for easy recall.
The hill comes with two gel coat options, and it’s available in 31-colors. You get an attractive aesthetic for the vessel and a sleek design that will have heads turning at the marina.
Interior, Seating, and Deck
The 2022 Supreme S240 comes with enough room to take 16-passengers out on the water for a day of fun wakesurfing. The interior comes with a plush lounge seating arrangement, available in two upholstery schemes, with 12 vinyl color options, three badge choices, and two tower options, available in two colors.
The interior features cushions with Comfort-Strong Marine-Grade Vinyl by Spradling. The Goretex materials provide heat and stain resistance, keeping your skin cool on contact after laying in the sun for a few hours.
We love the Supreme Shine Tower (SST), featuring stainless steel construction creating polished lines that accentuate the aggressive styling of the boat. While the SewLong Bimini top isn’t a standard option, it’s worth the extra money to keep you cool when the sun is overhead.
Bring the party out onto the water with the Wet Sounds audio package and full control over the sound system through the touchscreen controls in the cockpit. You also have options for installing the Roswell Bombshell 2.0 racks for your boards, and the rear transom step gives you easy access to the boat from the water, with an option for a stainless steel boarding ladder.
The rear sliding bench offers adjustable seating for your passengers to enjoy the action on the water. The cockpit features the 7-inch touchscreen for controlling the QuickSurf system and the ballasts, with a padded steering wheel for driver comfort.
There’s convertible flooring offering you plenty of storage space underfloor and under the seats, with optional speakers bins under the seating and optional power cans for the audio system mounting to the tower.
The 2022 Supreme S240 is one of the most affordable wake sports boats in its class. If we look at the top-of-the-line Ri230 from Centurion, you’re going to end up spending half the amount on the Supreme while maintaining almost all of its functionality.
The 2022 Supreme S240 retails for $128,285, and at that price, it’s easy to see why this boat is causing a stir in the market. If you don’t have the budget to splurge on the Ri230, we highly recommend considering the 2022 Supreme S240 for your tow sports boat.
The Supreme S240 is a great boat as a standard base model. However, you have the chance to upgrade its features through the choice of these optional extras.
- STD Decals.
- SewLong Bimini Top.
- Gator-step non-slip flooring.
- 2-color Step Centurion cut.
- Stereo system by Wet sounds.
- BombShell 2.0 strapless racks from Roswell Swivel.
- Flip-up stadium seats (port e star).
- HD sliding seat.
- Ladder swim step.
- 2nd snorkel for the three-outlet heater system.
- 6-way power seat adjustment.
- Interior limo lighting.
- HD panoramic mirror and flip-down mount.
Be careful when adding extras to your purchase; it’s easy to add another $10,000 to the purchase price if you get carried away with the additions.
2022 Supreme S240 – The Verdict
Overall, it’s hard to beat the value you get with the 2022 Supreme S240. This model is our top choice for an entry-level wake sports boat, with all the features of top models from sister company, Centurion.
