Here’s a 1965 Century Raven for sale in great condition with classic style and some cool history as well. This classic woody has spent most of it’s life in New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee. The wooden Century was actually one of the boats used in the 1981 Academy Award winning movie, “On Golden Pond”. The Raven was reportedly featured as the postal boat the USPS used to deliver mail around the lake. If you’re familiar with the movie, which I am not, this classic boat carries a cool history to it.
Back to the watercraft for sale, there are reportedly extremely low hours on the original 235 V8 engine from Gray Marine. Among other modern upgrades this classic Century Raven features a 45 gallon fuel tank, new batteries, fuel pumps, and more.
There are 30 people watching this boat right now on Ebay. That should tell you something on right there. 30 people watching, 3 days left, and no current offers on this boat. What does this tell me? Well it tells me that there are bunch of people hanging tight and waiting for someone else to set the market and make their move. The Buy It Now price is fair at $13,500 for a boat in very good condition of this vintage. So if “On Golden Pond” is your all-time favorite movie then don’t wait, make your move. If you just love 1965 Century Raven’s then I recommend keeping an eye on this one and get ready to pounce.
