1957 Century Resorter 18 Antique in Crystal Lake, Illinois

Stock #124151

This two-owner 1957 Century Resorter is a very special boat. She rests in a warehouse restored, covered and protected awaiting her next owner.

The current owner had the Century restored in 2008 including upholstery, rebuilding the stern and planking. After restoration, she was the star of a small number of classic boat shows and dock parties and then put away for safe keeping.

The precious Century design features are reminiscent of her era with classic mid-century automotive-style steering wheel, cigarette lighter and gas pedal on the floor board!

Her rich mahogany color and finish are a striking reminder that this Century is a unique find that is only available for fleeting moments.

This classic is priced to sell as-is/where-is.

Advertisement is for vessel only. Trailer is not being offered for sale by Pop Yachts.
Information On Condition

Stored in a heated warehouse the Century appears in good condition.

Approximately 30% of the planking was replaced in 2008. A recent inspection showed the planking was dry and firm.

The stern was rebuilt during the restoration and the upholstery was updated at the same time and appears to be in the same condition as it would have been when it was expertly restored.

The engine compartment is very clean and is housed in a new engine box which was built during the restoration.

All systems function, the owner confirms.

This boat is ready for a collector's acquisition.
