1966 Century Raven 26 Antique in Oak Park, Illinois

Stock #157287

Located near Chicago, IL., the 1966 Century Raven 26 has had a complete reconditioning!

The owner has completed the restoration and is looking for his next project making this vessel available immediately!

Powered by a Gray Marine 401 Cubic Inch you will be the envy and topic of conversation on whatever body of water you are on!

Seating arrangements include Captain's seating, navigation seating on port side and transom seating.

Small cuddy cabin area includes a berth for those times when you just have to take a break from the sun!

Step back in time with this truly one of a kind classic!

All new tires and rims, no spare.

All bearing were repacked and trailer has been sitting since then it has a standard straight plug and safety chains with a new welded on coupler.

I had a hitch with a 2 inch drop that I used on the back of the sellers Jeep as far as hitch hight. Should be no problem for a long trip

Information On Condition

As stated by the owner:

I've never put fuel into the reconditioned /relined fuel tank and have only run the engine a few times using a small tank.

Since the boat and trailer were restored, it has never been launched so it's in exceptional condition. Also due to its large size and ability to launch it from the trailer, I'd prefer not having to put the vessel in the water for a water trial.

Vessel has undergone a complete reconditioning and is not in need of any repairs!

As stated by the owner, all recommended manufacturer service and maintenance has been completed for both seasonal and off-seasonal events.

Approximate boat location: Oak Park, Illinois
