I know a little.

Company is in Opa Locka, FL. Started around 1987 and built boats until 1994. Did not build any from 1995 to 2002. The 33' was their most produced available in stern drive and outboard configurations. MIC is AVR. Beam is 8' 7".
Lay-up very good. Built strong. Typical Florida deep-vee hull.
Finishing work not the best, but acceptable and correctable. Rigging I've seen was above-average, but I don't know if it came from the factory as I saw it.

Hope this helps.

Would you say that a 1990 33' would be a good deal at 45k (depending on condition)?

It seems like a lot of boat for the money and with the market is right now im sure it could be had for 40k or less.

Boat with 330/TRS in running condition, but with nothing special:
Retail $35,500
Wholesale $25,800.

Hard to judge a boat that old without surveying it. Too many variables. Good Luck.

Right under my nose this whole time I didnt know there was a "misc" column in the classifieds I was wondering were he had it listed. As for the condition of the boat .Its in real good shape and never heard of any mechanical issues. I think it ran in the low 70's.He bought the boat earlier in the season for 55 or 60K .Maybe I shouldnt have put in the pic of it flying thru the air.Still a good boat I was interested in finding it, I'm trying to talk another buddy into buying it.
