Nice looking rig. One was just sold on Grand Lake including a lift for mid 60's.

$60k for a 16yr old 38ft boat - sounds like alot of money.

$40k - $50k maybe.

I always offer 20-30% less on the first offer. You never know how bad they want to sell.

It's a real nice Scarab but I think it should be considered just an average deal to not a bad deal. If they priced it at 50-52K I would conseder it a good deal. 63 hours on thse engines is a good thing provided they have been put right.

Drawbacks

1. No hydraulic steering
2. Stereo no mention(bound to be a stock unit)
3. Not a Larry Smith Scarab (i.e it has Wellcraft rigging), this makes the boat average in my opinion

And the boat cant run over 65 on a good day with those motors. Not that my boat will though...

If you were serious about a boat of this caliber... i'd be stepping it up to the Pink Flamingo, or Lakeluvr's kevlar38.
Pay more now and less later.
No comparison in this Scarab vs TG 38s.

Absolutely my thoughts. For that kind of money you could get in a Cigarette for just a few buck more.
