1968 Century Resorter For Sale – SOLD

6boat.jpgSOLD! FOR SALE IS MY 1968 CENTURY RESORTER (fiberglass) with the original Chrysler 440 engine and transmission. This is the larger, more spacious 19 foot long Resorter, not the 17. It runs perfectly and is in good condition. My goal was to keep it 100% original and eventually get it into show condition. It has a light tan exterior (original), burgundy upholstery and black accents.

It was previously owned by a master marine mechanic up in Lakeport, NH. He professionally rebuilt the engine and installed 2 new oak stringers that support the engine. Mechanically the boat is in excellent condition. Since I’ve owned it I installed new flooring and interior sideboards. Both jobs were done meticulously with Century stain, A&A factory approved upholstery in correct colors, marine plywood, and A&A rubber flooring. Again, my goal was to restore it original show quality. Still left to do is the dashboard upholstery (included), seat upholstery and perhaps new mahogany side rails. The gelcoat and chrome is original and in good shape, but not show quality. All gauges and steering wheel are original and in good condition.

If you want a classic boat that runs perfectly and requires almost no maintenance (unlike wood) drop it in the lake and enjoy. If you want a boat to turn into show condition during the winter this is a perfect start. Comes with galvanized tandem wheel trailer in good condition (may need new tires if you are hauling the boat far away). As you probably know, this is a rare and classic boat built solidly for skiing or cruising on the lakes.

I am only selling because we moved to St. Croix, USVI. It took me 3 years to find this particular boat. I am meticulous and all work has been researched and done as close to factory as possible. Once fully restored it should be worth about $12 -14,000. Sale price is $8,000 for a quick sale (sorry, lower offers or trades not accepted). Trailer, custom burgundy cover, extra prop, detailed receipts and misc. items all included. Located in Wolfeboro, NH. For details contact the owner at eric@cruzana.com or call (908) 548-3001. To see this boat in person contact Phil Spencer at Lakes Region Restorations by calling (603) 651-9147 or (603) 569-5038.

Salt River Marina

This may be the sleepy tropical marina every boater pictures in their mind when they think about paradise. There are perhaps 30 to 50 slips, a restaurant, a kayak tour company, a dive operation, and various other facilities. Palm trees hang over the road, people live aboard their sailboats and motorboats, and the atmosphere is low key and welcoming. Another name the marina goes by is Columbus Cove Landing.

I have eaten at the restaurant and the food was good. It’s a very casual open-air atmosphere. Boaters, patrons and the owners dogs stroll in and out. The service was timely for us, unlike some places on the island where you may wait a long time to be served.

Just around the corner is Salt River Beach. It’s a great spot to see boats thread the needle in between the shoals as they enter and exit the bay. It’s a good location for swimming in the shallows and the waves are usually small due to the protecting reef. Sometimes fishermen dot the shoreline with their handlines.
