ZEPHYRHILLS, FLA. – Century Boats, a classic American boat company established in 1926 and based in Zephyrhills, Fla., is celebrating its 90th anniversary throughout 2016. Established in Milwaukee, Wis. in 1926, the Century Boats brand endures – and in 2016 it expands with the reintroduction of its popular Resorter model.
From the company’s current home in Zephyrhills, Fla., the Century brand was rekindled in 2012 when it was acquired from Yamaha Motor Corporation by privately-held, family-owned and Florida-based boat building company, AllCraft Marine. The Lucius family had a strong history of crafting boats specific to the Florida boating lifestyle, and they understood the importance of revitalizing this historic brand and maintaining its headquarters in Florida.
“We are so happy and fortunate to advance the Century brand as we celebrate 90 years of creating high-quality, high-performance boats that are familiar to, and loved by, enthusiasts all around the world,” said Bryan Lucius, president of Century Boats. “The Century Boats of today certainly embodies the spirit of its great legacy – and our entire team is proud to contribute to the growth of the Century brand from our home right here in Zephyrhills.”
New to the Century fleet in 2016 is the 24 Resorter. An homage to its namesake last produced more than 20 years ago, the new 24 Resorter is a stylish 24-foot dual console model designed for family cruising, active watersports and serious fishing.
As Century Boats evolved through the decades – from sporty runabouts of the 1930s to hardcore fishing machines of today – the brand has remained committed to delivering innovation in design, craftsmanship and construction.
