ZEPHYRHILLS, FLA. – Century Boats, a classic American boat company established in 1926 and based in Zephyrhills, Fla., today announced that it will unveil the newest member of the Century model family during the 2016 Miami International Boat Show this February 11-15 at booth C-216 in tent C.
As Century Boats celebrates its 90th anniversary, the all-new 24 Resorter fishing boat introduces an innovative and stylish dual console design that captures the spirit and ingenuity of the enduring Century Boats legacy.
“Century Boats was founded in 1926, and as we honor our company heritage we’re excited to introduce the new Century Boats 24 Resorter,” said Bryan Lucius, president of Century Boats. “Throughout the Century Boats history, there have been many Resorter models that were loved by enthusiasts everywhere – and we’re certain the 90th anniversary edition 24 Resorter will stake its claim as one of the best yet.”
Designed for family cruising, active watersports and serious fishing, the 24 Resorter measures up with a 23′ 9″ LOA and beam of 8′ 6″. The dual console layout provides ample bow seating, a hidden bow beach-boarding ladder, and a stow-able bow table for entertaining. An enclosed head and cockpit sink deliver even greater comfort and convenience for all guests.
The 24 Resorter also comes ready for serious watersports activity and features a below-deck ski locker and hard-top tower with integrated ski tow.
Weighing in at 4,800 pounds and delivering a 20 degree deadrise, the 24 Resorter makes for a comfortable day offshore. The Resorter comes loaded with rod storage, rocket launchers and Mate Series combination rod and cup holder units. The 24 Resorter also features a lighted livewell and large, insulated fish box.
The 24 Resorter is fully integrated with Digital Switching by Raymarine – and is the only boat in its class to provide this standard. Digital Switching allows the operator to control onboard electrical and electronic components like lighting, pumps, entertainment systems, and much more from a network-connected display, smartphone or tablet.
“The 24 Resorter is the first model line expansion under Century Boats’ new ownership,” Lucius said. “We’ve all worked hard to ensure it successfully combines the classic Century styling with today’s cutting-edge performance and technology.”
