1966 Century Sabre 18 Gull Wing Hardtop Antique in Palm Desert, California

Stock #245356

If you are looking for a sleek and sexy classic wooden boat you found it with this 1966 Century Sabre Gull Wing Hardtop woodie

Century only made a few of these Sabre models with the dual use of Fiberglass and wood. The hull sides, bottom and transom are traditional wood mahogany planked construction and the deck with hard top and gull wing doors is fiberglass.

The gull wing roof is very rare and the panels can be opened up or completely removed for fair weather cruising.

She is in a condition that is perfect for someone looking to restore a classic boat but not in a state of total disrepair.

She has good "bones" and structural integrity with a good engine. All she needs is some planking work and shining the bright work to bring her back to her glory

She is a perfect candidate to enter this year's "Woodie Boat Festival" and sure to win the admiration of yesteryear's memories of cruising your favorite summer lakes.

She has a mahogany doubled-planked hull that needs a sanding and refinishing. The seller bought her for a restoration project but other life priorities have not allowed time and want to sell the boat so someone can take over the restoration needed. One plank is cracked and seller has replacement plank to be finished and fit in place.

She is a perfect boat for a buyer looking to refurbish a classic boat that is not a nightmare project.

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