Default Wellcraft Excaliber

Particularly mid 80's 27ft'r. Solid boat with a bbc? Or an expensive headache? Experiences? Pictures?

Good solid old wood, but be prepared to run in the 60's on a good day.

It's no rumor Note there are two people in this picture, no cooler. The 25 is worse, but this is pretty bad

got one and gutted it and added bulk heads but when done ran real good if you can find yourself a 27 activator its a modern 27 excalibur and a serious fast rough water boat

How fast/what power?

@texoma, its a sub 5K boat, maybe as low as 4K if she runs decent and passes a visual inspection, I'm not sure a survey is worth time/money in this case.

I'd survey the motor as well - leak down and compression test should be easy on that big single engine boat.

I had a 1982 rerigged it with a 540 640 hp and did a bravo in it and set the drive height at 19 inches.. Boat ran 85mph all day every day... best I ever went was 87....that hull is a great hull and awesome in the ruff stuff for it's size.Great boat cockpit is a little small because of the 7ft beam but all in all good boat..
