1957 Century Coronado 21 Convertible Antique in Long Beach, California

Stock #163560

When Century Powerboats began building the Coronado series, they were designing "The Cadillac of boats" at the time. The 1957 Century Coronado is one of their most popular models ever sold.

With its classic styling, bright vivid colors and details such as the gorgeous dashboard, there's no wonder why this is a favorite of the antique woody boater crowd.

From the stunning chrome that adorns the bow and stern to the sliding hardtop convertible, this Century Coronado just exudes excess.

Originally designed to use an overhead-valve V-8 in order to hit speeds up to 55 MPH, this Coronado just had a Custom Chevrolet 350 engine installed.

The boat was professionally restored in Idaho two owners ago in the early 1980s and he used it at his Lake Tahoe home for a few years. The boat was then put into storage for 12 years where it was found in a local boatyard. The Coronado was purchased and had minor work done on the transom, varnish, brightwork, some upholstery work, and new carpet installed. The previous owner had a boat mechanic swap out the engine and transmission before the current seller took possession.

When the engine was installed, the Tachometer was changed from a mechanical drive to electric. Since the engine install the boat has only been on the water during the ACBS Show on Big Bear Lake.

Information On Condition

This incredible 1957 Century Coronado is in excellent condition. The chrome is shiny, the vinyl deck on the bow is in great condition. There's no sun fade, anywhere. This is a boat the next owner will be extremely proud to show off.
