The main idea the manufacturer kept in head when designing the Century Arabian was to combine comfort and sportiness. This was particularly true for the Century Arabian model. The Company attached great importance to the added word “Arabian” which meant “as fast as an Arabian horse”.
During 1950-1960, the “Century Boat Company” produced the famous Arabian and other models such as Coronado, Viking, and Polomino, thus introducing a new design trend for a long time.
The boat is very rare. The production of this model lasted five years only – from 1955 to 1959.
Only 206 stunning water beauties were produced over the entire production period (51 boat in 1955, 46 vessels in 1956, 41 boat in 1957, 30 boats in 1958, and 38 boats in 1959).
Brown and yellow leather had always prevailed in the interior of this boat, yet, the design changed in the last year (1959) – red and white colors were selected for leather. The interior was added with ~1 m wide vinyl strap in the middle of the front deck along the boat.
The following celebrities enjoyed this rare, unique, fast and cosy boat, James Winslow, a British professional racing driver of the 20th century. He is the winner of five motorsport championships and currently competes in the Asian Le Mans Series. Phil Andrews, a famous British racing driver from Birmingham. He raced in famous championships and racings such as F3000, British F2, F2, Le Mans, EuroBOSS and Ferrari Challenge Europe.
