1951 Century Sea Maid 20'

A beautifully designed Century, not to many early 1950's Sea Maid 20' boats were made and few exist today.  This boat has been repowered with modern V-8 engine.  Recent varnish maintenance and all hardware re-chromed.  

The owner states the following:

"This 1951 Century Sea Maid is 20 feet in length overall, it his built from the factory out of Philippine mahogany, it has a 7' beam, it is a runabout of two cockpit forward design and seats six.  It has been repowered with a Ford V-8 302R inboard gasoline engine with Velvet Drive 1:1 transmission.  215 horse power water cooled.  The boat has had only two owners since new and has always been stored inside.  The top speed is 45 MPH but the boat has been gently used at lower speeds by its adult owner. 

The engine was installed in 1990 and at that time the wiring was also replace in the boat with new.  At that time the bottom was redone with three layers of 3/8" plywood installed with WEST System Epoxy. "
