    Looks very well maintained and a cool boat, but its still a 1991 Wellcraft for $44+k??? I think the price is kinda high.

    The picture of the scarab embroidery on the seat looks new. They did not hold up over the years. faded over the years.Mine faded .Ask if it been redone .if it has not ,it has not been used much.

    I don't think that year came with closed cooling??

    Did you get picture of the trailer.if it that old it may not be in good said it has a full cover that usually means some one care about the prance

    When i bought my Scarab new in 1990 the new 38 Scarab was 115000.oo in 1990 with the 365 mags.

    brokers commission is 10-15 %.I dont trust them

    talk to the previous owner!!!History

    A friend of mine just sold a 38 scarab 95 model for 78K with myco trailer.

    One thing to think about. MAKE SURE it has no leans and mortgages.Clear title if its got one .Coast guard documentations will show this.

    The price sounds good to me .Remember that pictures hide a lot!!

    Boost makes up for Cubic Inchs

    The stiching on my seats 91 31 held up great .
    I think that's a good price for a 38 if in fact survey come's in good. Good luck.

    Angry Sold - But not to me

    After much negotiating I thought I had a deal on the boat but before I put down a deposit someone else bought it out from under me. I would rather miss the good deal than rush into the bad one. Anyway I'm still looking and taking my time, but I did learn some things and that is good.
    1. Brokers are mostly liars and swindlers
    2. There are a lot of nice and helpful people on OSO, thanks to 105mph, GottaHaveIt, and Fever Fan for their help, advice, and general support while I pursued this boat
    3. Brokers are mostly liars and swindlers - wait - did I already say that?

    Sorry it didn't work out for you, looked like a nice starter boat and a good buy as well.

    Let us know what you're looking for and I'm sure we'll find it for you.

    Somebody better check rags to see if he was the one who ganked it out from under you!

    I know he's looking for an older Scarab. Looked like a sweet boat.

    Sorry to hear that HotRodr.

    I heard it had been out for a few test runs lately.

    hotrod , you may want to go about it deferently next time.
    posting it on oso brings the boat to everyones attention including other buyers.
    next time strike a deal , put a deposit down w/credit card based on sea trial/survey then ask if anyone knows the boat or would look at it for you if its far away. there is still no garentee the broker wont screw you , believe me i know
    as others have told me , be patiente and you will find the right deal.
