Sold as a new boat at the Sierra Boat company at Lake Tahoe in 1956. This boat has spent its entire life on Lake Tahoe. Bought by the current owner from Sierra Boat in 1992. Original Chrysler Hemi. This 21 ‘ Century Coronado boat has been very reliable for me over the past 27 years. Has always been on Lake Tahoe. I’m reluctantly selling it to decrease my maintenance burden on a number of fronts. I took the boat down to bare wood in 2006 replacing the bungs and the top decks. At that time Also removed the interior vinyl over plywood panels and milled and installed new mahogany slats on the interior. The dashboard was also plywood with vinyl. I manufactured a new mahogany. In 2006, all of the upholstery was also redone. All of the chrome and instruments and chrome are original as far as I know. The boats bottom was fiberglassed professionally at some point before I bought it in 92. Other than 2006, the boat has been in the lake and buoyed every year I’ve had it. The last 15 years in Rubicon Bay. The gas gauge and clock have never worked since I’ve owned it. I use a dipstick and the clock glass has a crack. It has the original Tonneau roof. It has an automatic mid boat bilge pump and I added a manual bilge pump in the stern to pump when the bow is up and under way to lighten the load. In 2017, the original gas tank finally failed. I had a brand new custom tank manufactured and installed. (I believe either aluminum or stainless, over $1000). It has a 2 battery configuration with a switch dial for on/off/both. I have typically varnished every other year and serviced the engine on the odd years. It has a full canvas cover and is always covered when not in use and has always been garaged in the window. The photographs unfortunately don’t show it with a fresh coat of varnish but rather, the day I pulled it out of the water last fall after a full summer of use. I missed the varnishing this year having been too busy with other projects and traveling. The hull should probably be taken down to bare wood soon. I believe the Chrysler hemi is a 331. It has dual carburetors for high altitude, runs with a deep throaty roar and has never failed to start right up in 27 years. The trailer I got it with was scrapped several years ago and I had a new custom dual axle DHM trailer manufactured for it. I have based the price relative to this hagerty valuation.
