They were bought from Yamaha and started making boats again. Some nice models so far. As far as parts most of the stuff that breaks is off the shelf at most retailers, pumps. There are still parts available that model specific. I had to replace windshield from the manufacture in Tennessee. Only part I have not found is cabin light.

Good to know that a lot of parts are industry standard, that's definitely comforting.


I guess for the stuff that's model specific you pretty much have to fab stuff up yourself or have it custom made. I imagine this can be frustrating and expensive.


Not sure whether I want to have to deal with that...

I had a1994 2180 for the most part it was a nice boat but it did have some problems with the hull had an 8ft crack in it. Or the price I paid for it I couldn’t pass it up.

Dexter Morgan seemed enjoy his Century 2901.

Unless they filming in Miami, then we can say good things for Whitewater.

I have a 2006 32 WA and love it. Boat is fully loaded and has the wood accent cabin. I compared this boat to Grady and whaler and you couldn’t beat the bang for the buck. I wouldn’t go below the 2005 year range.

There are 2 or 3 (that I know of) plastic shops in Ft. Laud. that can duplicate them.




Did not like the cheap oem seats so had this made utilizing the lower parts of the existing seat pedestals.

Haven't thought about Century Boats since the '50s and '60s when I used to drool and dream over their catalogs. Can't imagine today's product has much in common with those classics. Is today's "Century" even the same company or is it simply a name acquisition like today's Black Fin?

Mine is a 2008. I’ve upgraded and replaced several parts throughout the past year and never had any issue finding parts. Only thing I couldn’t find was original manual. I love the boat though. Very dry, fast, and good on fuel
