Description


This is a 1985 wellcraft scarab, 22 foot boat for sale. This boat has been maintained and many upgrades have been made to the boat. In 2006, a high performance 5.7 liter 350 brand new crate motor was installed in the boat. The motor only has 125 hours on it per the hour meter which was changed when the motor was installed (see pic). It is a marine grade 345 horsepower new crate motor from general motors. In addition to the motor, in 2006 a custom exhaust was fabricated with straight pipes by GIL Marine exhaust (Go to their website, top of the line performance exhaust for boats. Here is one website http://www.boatstore online.com/Gil_exha st.html, also see how expensive they go for on ebay). With the exhaust upgrade the boat is probably pushing around 365-370 horsepower and sounds like a big block. Also, in 2006, the outdrive was exchanged with a alpha one rebuilt drive. The oil has been changed in the outdrive and motor every year. It comes with a custom made morning cover which is black in color and covers the whole cockpit to keep water from getting in the interior (this was custom ordered last year for 500 dollars, see pic). Their are no rips or tears in the boat upholstery and its in very good condtion. The boat includes two stainless steel props which retail for about 400 dollars each and are in great condition. The whole stereo system has been upgraded including the following, two twelve inch subwoofers (One Rockford Fosgate P2 and the other is a MTX7000). New kenwood 6.5 inch components in the front of the boat. New Rockford Fosgate 6 x 9's in the rear of the boat. A total of three amps professionally installed and wired. Two of the amps are top of the line Rockford Fosgate PUNCH amps (only about one year old, see pics) and the third is a performance kenwood amp. The stereo has about 1000 watts and sounds great! One of the best stereos on the lake and installed properly to be maintenance free! The boat includes all safety equipment including flares, anchor, stress flag, two bumpers, tie off ropes, etc. The boat will do around 60 mph but was never GPS's as I don't beat on the boat. In the front is a small cuddy cabin. It has a 60 gallon gas tank and is efficient with gas as its a single motor. Only high test gas has been used since the motor replacement. The motor also has a brand new lifetime warranty alternator to keep the batteries charging. The batteries are less than 3 years old and includes two of them hooked up to a Perko battery switch. The reserve is set low on this boat and the boat is located about five minutes from Rocky River public boat launch. We have clean titles to the trailer and boat and will take out the winning buyer on lake erie to show them how the boat runs before payment. Please do not bid on this if you are not serious as this is a legal binding auction. The motor and GIL custom exhaust was 5,000 dollars when installed and the stereo was over 1,000 dollars installed. The rebuilt outdrive was another 1,000 dollars and the new cockpit cover was 500 dollars. The boat also comes with a 1991 double axle trailer (new ball bearings and lights were installed about five years ago, new winch and new tires were installed new five years ago also)(The trailer alone is worth 1,500 dollars). This is one of the best running older boats that you will find. It starts up everytime with no issues which you will see when we take out the buying party on the lake. All the switches on the counsel work and everything has been wired professionally. You can get a great running boat that turns heads, which is fast and has a great sound system for a very affordable price compared to the new boats. The only reason I am selling it is to buy a larger boat. This was and still will be a great starter boat for someone who doesn't want to spend allot of money on the newer boats. Feel free to call or email me with any questions or if you want to schedule a time to see the boat before the auction ends. The boat is located about 10 minues from Rocky River public boat launch. The reserve is set very low for just what was invested in the new engine and rebuilt outdrive two years ago. You can get this boat for a small fraction of what they cost new and should always be able to get your money out it when you sell it. We bought it for 8,000 about 2.5 years ago and bought it from a gentlemen that always stored it inside in the winter since he owned the boat (15 years). 500.00 deposit is required through paypal within 24 hours of auction ending and the rest is due on pickup to be paid in cash.

Will deliver boat up to 60 miles for free and after that I can still deliver for 50 cents a mile or the winning buyer can arrange your own transportation. Perfect feedback! Please don't hesitate to call or email me with questions, my name is Vince. Most boats in the 1980's that you see, have several little problems with them. This one is very strong running and no issues. Why buy another boat when you can have a SCARAB race boat for under 10,000 and get everyones attention!
