Default What is a Webbcraft ??

There is a 1987 30' Webbcraft Concorde for sale near me.
It seems like it has a pretty broad beam(I didn't measure) Twin 454 w/Alpha drives, Red, definitly needs TLC.
I've never heard of the Webbcraft name...Anyone
He is asking $24,500, seems kind of steep.
Not that I need another 1987 boat to work on

I looked at one too back in 1993. It was anew but unsold couple year old model, asking I think around $50k, but I bet I could have gotten it for $30k.) They are a small company in I believe Oklahoma. You see one on boatrader.com every now and again. One was on e-bay a while ago too. The one we looked at was BB/alpha, sheet metal tabs ... fairly low end equipment and rigging in my book.

Pretty sure Webbcraft is out of business. They were built by a man named Bill Webb. At one time he built the largest open bow boats on the market, there are still several concordes on Grand Lake.

I would think that 24,500 might be a bit much especially with A-drives.

Yes, they are out of business. I grew up in Collinsville, OK. There are parts, props, and what not all over the place there. Actually, I was home there a couple of weeks ago and my brother-in-law came in with a prop. He wondered if it would fit the Outlaw. Let's just say it would fit a very large boat maybe a cruiser.
Ask Gordo about it. I played a little trick on him with it.

Webbcraft went out of business because of a "freak" fire that burned down the plant. It was a little peculiar. The boats are all over the place around KS and OK. Mostly smaller runabouts.

Webb made a good (small) boat. But the Concords were very heavy and the ride was not very good - for a 30' boat.

Well now thats a lot of info,
thanks
Cig racer, funny you mention that Caddy emblem, when I first saw it from a distance I said to myself, who the hell put a Caddy emblem on that boat.
Now I've got another one....
A guy at my marina has a 1981 39' Chris Craft Scorpion,(damned if it doesn't look like a Cig!) Twin big blocks I couldn't see the drives. He told me "only 11 made and I've got # 9", another one for sale, and looking a little tired, but maybe with a little work.......
Any history on these????
