1963 Century Resorter 17ft

Mahogany
Forest Green Vinyl Upholstery

Offered here for consideration is a beautiful 1963 Century 17' Mahogany Deck Resorter. It is powered by a rebuilt Gray Marine 327 “Fireball” 225hp V8. This classic boat has the Original Burgee Pole and Flag/Light Pole, Forest Green Vinyl Upholstery, New Battery and bilge pump, and a Trailmaster Trailer with custom bunks and winch assembly.The boat was first owned by a judge who summered in Saugatuck MI, the boat ended up unused and neglected. Then it was purchased in the 90's by a former carpenter at Broward Yachts Saugatuck yard, she was again loved and brought back to beauty. He was ahead of his time in replacing the bottom with marine plywood and 5200, the preferred rebuild method today. No more soaking and keeping the bottom wet, she stays dry all the time. The true gift of the restoration is the one-of-a-kind dash panel of inlaid birdseye maple. With new gauges, it is simply a stunning feature. This and her overall appearance draw stares and start conversations wherever she goes.The boat runs excellent, gear changes are smooth, with speeds over 40 mph. Her only need would be a fresh coat of copper bottom paint. Quite honestly, the trailer could use a paint job as well, perhaps green to match the interior. This is a boat to be used and enjoyed, not a look-not-touch concours d'elegance trophy at 3 times the cost. She will, however, take a trophy or two at local classic boat shows. Offered at $11,900 in Grand Rapids, MI. Quality Trades considered at both higher and lower values.This vehicle is being offered for sale through Garage Kept Motors LLC.
