Anybody know about Well crafted boats

Recommended Posts

never been on one myself. Think they have a good reputation. That said any boat can have problems. I was looking at a couple on CL. So will be awaiting the reply 's with you.

I'm wanting to get a boat that has an outboard. Because it's getting to hard to do all the maintenance on an i/o. Plus I can use an outboard more since it doesn't really need much done to winterize it. I will be selling my 1995 221 Startcraft Islanders cuddy. It's in great shape. Engine runs great and has been tuned up by a mechanic every few years. But the winterizing and oil changes I did myself every year for the last 11 years since I've had the boat.

I run a 32' wellcraft. It's an 87. You need to have the stringer's check. Mine were repaired already.   It take rough seas with no problem.   Really liked the living space below so it doubleshould as our cottage.     Rest of item's I had issues with are normal maintenance plugs wires cap rotor  transmission clutch plates.

Good reputation.  I got the pleasure of driving one back from Ludington to Holland head long into 20 mph south winds.  Took 10 hours.  Never was nervous though....

Who would I get to check the stringers? I know nothing about fiberglass boats. I probably won't get it anyway. Was also thinking of going to a little bit smaller boat than the islander so it would be a walleye and salmon boat. But the only used ones that I can find that are 19-20ft are lunds.

I did not have mine checked, but it was noted by the owner that stringers were redone, and you could see that they were done.

 

I did google for a Survey company and this is one of the sites that pop'd up.

I know nothing about this company, but it did have a lot of good information on the site.

Call Mark Veurink out of Spring Lake. He was recommended to me when I bought my boat and told me what to look for. That way I didn't waste my money paying him to look at boats that were junk. He has a good reputation and was good to me.
