That 33 was sitting on a used car lot on Rt. 9 in Waretown for a few months.

A friend of mine had a late 80's 30' NJ Avanti with major stringer problems . Started the repairs himself because professional repair was over $6000. Ripped it all apart and found out why it was so expensive...gave up and let the bank repo it and was happy to be rid of it
He's now running a Wellcraft

Mold work is horrible on most every one I have ever seen. Hull sides have major waves in them. Check the bottom of the boat, usually quite a bit of hook near the stern. Strakes are never straight either. Resale is not very good either from what I have seen. Had a friend with one and it was a POS.

Since you mentioned it, the one thing I noticed on that e-bay 33' every time I drove past it was the wavy hull sides. I could see it plain as day driving by at 50 mph.
