Meet Trigger.... She is a 17.5’ 1961 Century Resorter, a Hot Rod on the water!
This is a great example of the wonderful mahogany boats that were produced mid century. While she has a lot of her originality, some upgrades have taken place to make her even more fun to operate and own. The interior remains original 1961 and is in decent condition, especially considering the age!
A stereo was installed underneath the dash so it is not visible and connects via Bluetooth with 4 new speakers (2 placed out of sight in the bow and 2 near the rear on either side of the engine). The electrical system was completely overhauled and now has a proper bus bar, dual battery setup (Isolated Main), corresponding fuses, and LED lighting throughout the vessel.
The engine is a 1983 350 Chevy High Performance Crate motor producing north of 300hp. This engine was new and installed in 2008 and has 241 hrs on it (Happy to share the cool story about how she wound up with a “new” 1983). The engine is Freshwater Cooled and recently the exhaust was rebuilt. Boat is equipped with 2 bilge pumps (1 bow, 1 stern) and has an Ambush 4 prop and delivers one heck of a hole shot, anyone want to go for a ski?
And yes, there is just something special about the way a wood boat rides and seeing the look other people give you when they see a true classic that has the rumble of power..... Now it’s time for Trigger to make some awesome memories with a new family and that could be you! Other Notables: - Boat comes with a canvas canopy (not pictured) - Trailer is included
