I don't think it is fair to compare this boat to any of those light layup, shallow cuddy boats on your list. That Scarab is more the size of a 29 Baja OL, 28 Sonic, or Donzi 28 ZX. My friend has a single 29 Scarab big power with a 420 blower and just gets 80.

Im getting 90 out of a single engine 28.8 foot boat.

I also get 2.2-2.5 MPG at cruise speeds.

A modern built light layup setup can deliver astonishing performance from a single.

Bravos dont last period- regardless of what they are behind and yes redundancy is great, but the cost is severe.

Much like single engine planes a well maintained single is better than an ignored twin.

i had a 28 active thunder single and a 28 saber with twins. both have pros and cons and i am sure you can argue any point. i prefer the twins.

Next question- having 2 boats that compare size wise with a scarab 29

would you not buy the single engine package if it were a good deal?


Im concerned that a scarab 29 is a resin bucket and isnt comparable to a modern 28/29 in weight at all but likely at least thousand or more pounds heavier.

I believe the weight of the twin 29 scarab is around 6300 hundred pounds and the single is 5500 hundred pound and this is the dry weight
