I think you should pass and buy a Fountain

If you buy a 33' Scarab, you pay for 33'. There's just something wrong about that.



PD32GT29, I know, I know. Bite me Shor.

Sounds like A LOT of work to me. I'd rather be boating than wrenching. To each their own.

So what are you saying "Buy a 33 pay for 33' of boat". You mean as opposed to buying a Fountain as in buy a 32 get 30 foot of boat and 2 foot of beak?

Is this a center console or a regular Scarab?

If you want 33 foot of boat, buy a 35. These people just don't get it

Sounds like a Scarab III Super Sport. Drill a tiny hole in the transom and see how many gallons of water run out. If the price is real right anything can be fixed. Lots of room in those boats but maybe 70 mph with triples. Wellcraft sold a ton of those to smugglers.

sounds a little to much work
you want to take an outboard boat and turn it into I/O's
talk about an all NEW stringer system at best
I am sure it was not stringered for that
Much easier to turn an I/O into an outboard
rig it with the OB or leave it alone
No way would I do this
but then again I would not buy a Scarab

Thumbs down

It is more than likely an old SCARAB III. With twin 454 it will have a top end of about 55-60 mph. After 1990 it was called a 34 SCARAB and the hull was reworked and top speed goes up to 60-65 mph. I own one of the 1992 models. With stock 502's it had a top speed of 70 mph. Very strong hulls-very good ride. Likes the rough stuff.

Talking

this is how it will work....you buy the hull for 6k, you rig it for i/os like you want with drives, you will spend with labor 30k. so you will have 36k in a boat with teak. dont do it, look for a boat already completed!!!!! you will NEVER get your money back!!! i know, i made the same mistake and it cost me 80k oh yeah, and its now for sale with 160hrs for 30k...
