Default Scorpion boats anyone?

Anyone heard of Scorpion boats? My guess is a So Florida builder. Saw an add for a 33 center console, but have never heard of them before.

Thanks - Greg

Scorpion Power Boats was located here in Miami Fl,
the owner was Julio de Varona. He was Willie Diaz
driver in the EL BOSS V-bottom CIG. Franks Marine
A class boat that won many races ran a 24 Scorpion
in the 90`s. I dont know of a 33, however is 32 Elegante
full cabin with twin I/O`S had good success even with the marine patrol. As far as I`m concern he only had a 32 center console used by alot boaters down here with twin outboards. He also made a 37 center console, but he made his mark with his 32 with outboards in breaking the Miami to New York race back in the 80`s.
If I can answer something else you can PM me and I will ask him myself. He also raced a Cat called Auto Connection when the races used to be from Miami to Nassau.

You need to talk to BruceK on this forum. He raced a scorpion in APBA for a number of years. His boat was B-99 "Unleashed" and it was pretty fast (100mph +).

It's back on the radar screen. Needs some work but is priced right and has recent power. Time will tell.

I drove the boat with Bruce. It was one hell of a ride! In retrospect I WISH I bought it from him when he sold it and Iknow he wishes he still had it. That thing ran in the rough and turned like it was on rails! Much of that could be attributed to Bruce and his perfectionist personality in set up and preparation. Look at the boats attitude. Flying high but LEVEL!

Well, I think I bought a 32 Scorpion center console. Rick took a look at it for me last weekend, and the survey is Friday. Should know for sure if it will all come together by next week.
