Very nice and rare 19' Wellcraft Scarab Sprint with Volvo Penta jet drive. The boat originally came with a V6 but has since been replaced with a marine 350 cubic inch,4 barrel carbureted V8 Chevy crate motor by a previous owner, and the installation looks stock, the hull only has about 92 hours according to the hour meter, the engine has less hours obviously. I'm not sure of the horsepower but it should be at least 260 hp. minimum, it still retains the stock through transom exhaust(not loud) and some other original engine components. The boat's in very nice overall condition and the gel coat has a nice shine, it runs great and starts right up, the original graphics of chartreuse and purple have been removed and replaced with other decals, so it has a different look than stock. I replaced the front seats with smaller back seats but I have the original ones too. I replaced the forward/neutral/reverse cable last summer with a OEM Teleflex part, and it operates nice and smooth like it should. There are snaps installed on the boat for a cockpit cover, but the cover is missing. There is some sound deadening material installed by the previous owner in the bow area and engine compartment lid. I installed electric drum brakes on the trailer so you'll need a 7 pin connector and brake controller installed on your tow vehicle if you choose to use the trailer brakes, the tires and rims were replaced in the summer of 2017 so they're like new. I have the original tires and rims for spares, it has a newer winch strap and tie downs(2017), all the trailer lights work, it's a nice solid galvanized trailer. The boat weighs around 2,100 lbs. and the trailer 700 lbs.. All the gauges work and it has a Pioneer single cd am/fm radio with 4 speakers and a Kenwood subwoofer with a remote. I also installed Bennett self leveling trim tabs that help it plane quicker, it has a nice large swim platform and a built in ladder for easy entry. This is a fun and fast boat, and you won't see very many of them around, if any, and probably not with a V8 and jet drive. I'm selling it because I don't use it enough, this summer I was only out twice. I have a clear title for the boat in my name, but I don't have a title for the trailer, a bill of sale only. The MSRP in 1997 was $20,475. and that was with a V6. Price $9975.00
