It took me a long time to get out of my 30 Scarab cause I just couldn't find a boat worth the move. Till I found a nice 42 Sonic. Well worth the move.

Went from a 24' (27 Fever) to a 30' (35 Lightning). The move from small single to small twin was definitely worth it. Did it with a 30% increase in cost (Shopped hard).

Now here is a subject I know something about.


18 ft century try hull >
$5k

23 ft DONZI single 350 >
$12k

30 ft SCARAB 2x502 >
$25k

It doubled in size each time!!!

The SCAR has the power and WEIGHT to crush waves like the scum that they are... and the dual engines to get me home after I break...

I bet you can get the dealer to eat the two thousand and with a little creative financing get away with almost the 10% down. Just my 02

Cool

Went from 25 checkmate 251 to a 34 scarab that is 36 ft long. WOW what a difference (26,000 to 80,000) I don't buy new that way I can buy more boat for the money. I buy 2 years old. You WILL be happy with the bigger boat. Just remember that you have to be able to afford more than just the monthly payment.

A friend is currently thinking of moving down from his Baja 38 Special to somthing in the 30' range because the 38 is just a pain in the ass for the type of boating he does.

Well I made the jump from a 27 Baja to a 43ft Black Thunder with Blower Motors. That was a big jump in $$$$. I have no regrets! I love the big boat and the big power!
