1982 Century 8000
| My friend and I received this project boat from his parents to fix up - it was sitting for quite a few years. |
A huge amount of work was put into this boat, but we're realizing that we just don't have the time to use it as we had hoped, so we decided to sell.
It's an awesome boat and will be a lot of fun for the right person.
Both inboard motors (Mercruiser 898 v8) run pretty well.
Iíve included a link to a video of the motors running, the inside layout, etc.
To see this video, please copy and paste the link provided in a new tab on your internet browser.
The inside needs some work, but it is usable as-is.
We had big plans to redo the interior all together, but as I mentioned previously, we donít have the time.
Please reach out if you have any questions!
