1989 Century Arabian 19′ powered by a Mercruiser 454, 340 HP with a Velvet Drive transmission. She is owned by Don and Kathy Parker.
We acquired this 1989 Century 19’ Arabian in 2016. We wish she could tell her own story because the boat must have experienced a very difficult infancy and teenage years. Apparently, she got caught up in a Century Boats’ bankruptcy, acquisition by Glastream, and eventually was left outside, covered with a tarp that eventually disintegrated. At some point, she was acquired by a dealer in Kansas City who began to rebuild her which necessitated new stringers, flotation, fiberglass restoration, etc. The restoration stalled at some point and she was acquired by Jason St. Onge in Carthage, Missouri. Jason contracted with a fiberglass restorer in Nixa, Missouri who completed the work on the stringers and flotation. Mr. St. Onge then began the process of putting her back together.
She is powered with a Mercruiser 454, 340 HP with a Velvet Drive transmission. At the time we took delivery the engine had 6.1 original running hours. In 1987 Century had been acquired by Glastream Group and so her hull number (GSYDV053G889) actually indicates she was built by Glastream.
She should be a great vessel for Table Rock Lake with her 7’3” beam, 19’1” length and deep v hull design.
