 1972 Century Resorter

It’s Miller Time

This Classic Boat is owned by Doug and Stacy Heinsohn

 It’s Miller Time …

 is a 1972 Century Resorter 16′ with a Chrysler engine 340hp.  She is owned by Doug & Stacy Heinsohn of Lake Saint Louis, MO.

Here is Doug’s story about It’s Miller Time:
As a child spending weekends at Lake of the Ozarks, I always admired the rumble of the Century Thoroughbreds coming in and out of Links Landing Marina. My two older brothers shared the same love for the inboards as I did. In 1980, they purchased a 1972 Century Resorter 18’ with a sliding soft top right off the floating showroom dock at Links Landing. For the next 25 years, we would spend countless hours cruising, swimming, dining, and skiing in that Resorter. The 18’ Resorter remains in the family garage but has rested for the last few years.
 
Fast forward to the fall of 2020. While searching boats for sale on various websites, I stumbled across a very similar boat that was a 16’ Resorter with the same red exterior and white interior. After many photos and conversations to validate the purchase, I decided to make the trip to Crooked Lake in the Angola, IN area to bring her back home to Lake St. Louis, MO.
It’s Miller Time” is named after its previous owner and the decision was made to keep it in honor of the man who took such excellent care of her for so many years. “It’s Miller Time” is a 1972 Century Resorter 16’ and packs the original Chrysler 340 for that Thoroughbred rumble. I’m sure “It’s Miller Time” will provide us with many years of enjoyment as I enjoyed as a child. Only now we will be plying the waters of Lake St. Louis and Lake of the Ozarks.
