Woody Boat of The Month..1958 Century Arabian.
Holy Crap! Wow! Dang! Boing! Schwing! This is one very cool boat. To be honest when I see Arabian as a listing I go right by it, it’s usually some late 60’s looking car thing. I love the early Century’s and this one just takes the cake. The color combination, and just general overall lines are perfect. Even photographed in a trailer it is stunning. And … yes, it’s for sale. With the trailer. Click here. Druel cup optional.
Beautiful boat but this is whats known in the antique and collector car crowd as a Trailer Queen. Does it ever get wet? Most likely doesn’t even have that great Old Boat Smell!
Give me a user anyday, but it sure is purty!
Beautiful boat, but get a load of the trailer and rolling storage barn all in one. Do you put the whole rig in the water? All aluminum. Wow
Trailer or no trailer, this is one bitch’n boat. We dont use them that much anyway.
Woodyboater your last sentence hurts and is the core of wood boat madness.
It’s the curse.. I giggle when i can finely get out on the water.
I am pretty sure this is the same boat that was at the International Show in Idaho this past summer. There can’t be too many with the same color combinations. It was in the water all weekend. Very cool boat. Looks much larger in person. Almost like a Capri on steroids.
as owner of Fleet Wood 58 Arabian I can say that this is not a trailer queen but we use it often for shows and many boat runs in MI,GA.KY and other areas and yes we do back the trl into the water to launch and retrieve the boat
thanks for viewing Ben
Thanks Ben, what a compliment to have someone say its a trailer queen. It looks that good. And my sailors cap is off to you for keeping the boat that nice while being a user boat. I do the same with my Barrel back. Its the 2 hr clean up after each use that is the killer. But well worth it in the end. I LOVE THIS ARABIAN!
So Ben, can you please explain how the trailer works? There isn’t much clearance for the prop, and I didn’t see anything that would align it on the bunks. Does it have a winch?
Oh and the Boat, well, its a beauty. Thanks
There is a winch and bow stop, the boat centers itself as it enters the trl, the bunks are placed to catch the “V” as it enters and once inside it can’t move sideways.The prop won’t hit because there is at least 2′ of water in the trl.
