SOLD! 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.
