1959 Century Resorter Runabout in Hollis, New Hampshire

Stock #208396

1959 Century Resorter is a classic wooden runabout with an loa of 16'5" and a 6' beam powered by a single Gray Marine Fireball 238 HP

Yes there is a custom trailer for the boat with a new spare winch and chocks.

The boat was completely restored in 2010/11
Honduran mahogany front and rear decks, upper transom, gunwales, sideboards, some hull batten seams, stainless steel hull and deck fasteners, with new varnish overall & fresh bottom paint.

The current owners are aficionados of classic cars and wooden boats. This boat is the last of the family's restoration projects.

Note the craftsmanship and skill and love in this boat.

If you're looking for a one of a kind "head turner" this is it.

Imagine a great time on the water with your special person, basket of treats, a bottle of wine and nothing but time on your hands. Enjoy endless time on the water in this classic beauty.

About the craftsman with all the skill:
"I am an antique wooden boat and car restoration enthusiast (have restored several Beetle Cats, vintage Old Town canoes, a 1929 Wianno Senior racing sloop, a 1950 Buick and other projects, and this was my last restoration project before my eyesight got too poor to safely operate power tools.

This boat was restored by me in our garage over a 1-year period using hand-picked, well-seasoned Honduran Mahogany from a local marine lumber yard and all stainless steel hardware of the best quality from West Marine (at great expense).

I have taken it out to a local mid-sized lake several times a year and it goes like a bat out of hell as it is a ski boat with a 238 HP Gray Marine Fireball V-8 engine (yes, that is an unfortunate name for a boat engine, but they have been around for 60+ years in vintage runabouts." - the Seller
