1960 Century Ski-Dart 17 Antique in Crystal Lake, Illinois

Stock #228152

The Century Ski-Dart was an early evolution of the wood-hulled runabout which led the way towards the development of more modern watersports boats. Her sleek design, light weight, and centered powerplant made her a high performer in her era. At a published top speed of 42mph, this boat will hold her own on today's waters as well.

The Ski-Dart sports the original yellow and black color and the striking dart graphic on her hull. The African Makore Mahogany hull is original plywood and does not require soaking.

The original tow bar, which was mounted with the engine on Ski-Darts, stands ready to pull skiers and tubers.

The nicely finished bench seats in front and back are finished wood. In classic boating style, just put the floating cushions on, launch the boat in the water, and go!

The Ski-Dart was smartly designed with lateral stowage under the gunnels for a removable swim ladder, classic water skis, and an emergency oar, all of which come with this boat.

The boat is almost one-of-a-kind because it is original and period-specific. She waits in her collector's heated storage to begin her next 60 years with a new owner.

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

The hull and cockpit appeared in excellent condition. The painted and stained finishes have very good shine with deep reflection. There was no fading or discoloration visible on any of the finishes. The original controls, gauges, and stainless steel all were strikingly complete and show the boat's light use over the years.

The Ski-Dart's presence will not be missed on the lake and admirers will be amazed by the performance of this gem.
