1964 Century 21 Coronado
- Stock #088352 -
Excellent Condition! Professionally Maintained! Rare Find!
In the world of Antique & Classic Boating, the name "Coronado" represents the dramatic new approach to runabout design that designer Richard Arbib and Century brought the market in late 1954 for the 1955 season. Incorporating modern overhead-valve V-8 engines capable of propelling the new Coronado's to top speeds of 55 MPH was a hit with performance hungry consumers at the time.
In the book Classic Century Powerboats by Paul, Frank & Trudi Miklos, Arbib suggested a new approach: ignore the past and re-invent the speedboat; introduce fashion and timeliness to boat styling. Painted hull schemes and bold contrast were foremost. While Century could easily have kept the Resorter name, the new name was as important as the boat itself. Considering Century's aspiration to be the "Cadillac of Boats" the phonetic similarity between Coronado and Eldorado was more than a coincidence.
Inside, the automotive detailing prevailed with bright colors and textures configured in new ways. The dashboard was the jewel of the interior.
This Hull M6461 is a Classic design and style.
This 1964 Century has been professionally maintained by a company specializing in antique boats. Our seller found this gem in the Adirondacks and brought her back to Illinois where she has been docked on a covered lift on the Chain of Lakes. Since 1964 this gem has only had three owners. Most of the boat is original with the exception of the dashboard which the current seller had custom made out of mahogany. The flagpole is the original. Seller is willing to sell the boat with the electric lift.
