98K for a 14 year old, 28' boat? I'm thinking someone better call a cab for that surveyor, he's had enough!

FWIW, here's the NADA entry for this model:

Quote:
WELLCRAFT MARINE CORP
1988

SEE "CALIFORNIAN YACHTS" FOR CALIFORNIAN MODELS AFTER 1985.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Length: 28'
Model Name/Description: SCARAB EXCEL 28
Boat Type: Stern Drive Power Boat
Hull Material: Fiberglass
Beam: 7' 8"
Engine: 1
330 HP
Gasoline
Net Weight: 4,600
Low Retail: $9,350
Average Retail: $12,000

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reported Engine Range: 401-500 HP
Total adjustment for your engine(s) - Add: $680

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Totals
Total Low Retail: $10,030
Total Average Retail: $12,680
So, I guess the "surveyor" thought that the motor and paint were worth $86K or so....

I ESPECIALLY LIKE THAT THE WHOLE DESCRIPTION IS IN CAPITAL LETTERS AND ONE BIG PARAGRAPH BECAUSE IT SHOWS JUST HOW EXCITING THE BOAT IS AND THE FACT THAT EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE CUSTOM PAINT COST A LOT OF MONEY WELL THAT JUST MAKES ME WANT IT MORE...

hmmmm . . . that is a prime example of what happens when you have a auto body shop paint your boat. cant make up your mind what style to go with . . . .use them all. flames/scallops/flags , bet there is a candy apple red stripe down the deck to. too much for me man, i always liked the 29 ecxels though.

What The hell is he talking about. " Total Custom"

I have the same boat with a 600 hp motor in it and custom graphics so dose that mean that mine is " total custom " as well. Look at the dash. I couldn't take looking at that out dated setup any more and updated everything to Gaffrig gauges and I am going to install rocker switches instead of my old toggle switches. And give me a break ..... sit down pedestal seats. I at least have bolsters in mine. I have more custom work in mine than his. Maybe mine will be appraised at 110K LOL Anyone interested.
