If you’re looking for a vintage ski boat that you plan to actually use, then this 1968 Century Cheetah is the ski boat for you. Everything about this vintage ski boat looks solid. It’s by no means a show quality boat, but if you are going to use the hell out of it then who cares. The Cheetah is packing a 318 Chrysler Mercruiser engine flexing 225 hp. That is plenty of power for all of your water sport needs. You can pull skiers and tubers all day with that muscle.
The wood accents on the front and rear could use a little sanding and fresh coat of stain. Brightening up those two spots, which are small, would really help that retro green color pop. I’m really digging that color by the way. For under $7k you can and this reliable Century Cheetah. Then you can flaunt it’s vintage style all over your local body of water… captain.
