I have no doubt it is, tell them you will bring them cash and want to see it in person, pick up at their home in brooklyn, no paypal or checks. and see what happens

I wish e-bay would take more responcibility for this chit

This Boat look familiar (same boat) for 239K at Aqua Mania

Fraud is rampant on E-bay. It will be the downfall if they do not diligently police the sellers.

ask them where the boat is located. I guarantee they say its over seas.

There is a new 25' Baja Outlaw for $15000 also on ebay.

If you read further it says 75,000.00, but why is the starting bid 1200.00??? Makes no since. Sounds funny to me.

1 day left and it's at 1200. if this is legit, i wonder if the guy knows his boat has no reserve...



I doubt it is a legit sale as Ebay has become a haven for criminals...and Ebay has basically let it run rampant.
