I don't know if OL is still sitting on that 38 Scarab or not, but if so it looks like a lot of boat/hardware for the money assuming it all checks out. At this point I suspect they'll at least entertain a $50k offer.

I sent this link (OSO) to my friend Dave, he does not speak a word in english, but still can click on links for pictures, prices, and boat description!

Thanks for the fast suggestions!

On these kinds of threads, inevitably people reply with mid-90s boats. I'm curious, is this a situation where you should just wait and spend more for a newer boat? Or would most people be comfortable with a nearly 20 year old boat as long as it has fresh engines and drives?

There's a lot more to it than just age....I'm not going to name any companies but I'm sure you can go buy a 2000 or newer 35ft for $50k from a production type company, but its not going to happen with a boat built by a custom builder. Resale is always going to be better from a high end builder that only builds a couple boats a year. I would personally would much rather spend the money on an older higher end boat than a newer production boat that everytime you go out, you see 5 of them.

A well built older boat (90's or so, not sure how far back "modern layups" go) with proper maintenance is nothing to avoid. Love my 96 and it gets compliments everywhere. Of course some 90's boats are much more dated than others. I'd love to have a 90's Top Gun or bigger power play though.
