DESCRIPTION

As of May 20, 2024, Owner has obligated the vessel to a 6 month contract in the Bahamas. During that term he cannot sell her. He is willing to negotiate terms for a purchase after his current contract expires. Consult Broker for further details.

She is a heavily modified version of a Scarab 34. Current Owner took over the project from the previous Owner who had gutted a Scarab 34 with the vision to convert her into a high speed, any weather, commercial dive or utility vessel. Following completion of that refit, she spent 3 years as a survey boat, averaging 286 days a year in service, putting over 36,000 miles under her keel. She is currently on her third set of engines. This customized Scarab has proven to be a rugged, no nonsense workhorse. Short on high end luxury, but long on performance and flexibility, she can be adapted to many potential uses. Especially noteworthy is the how this hull handles running at high speeds in a seaway. If you need to get somewhere fast on a regular basis this hull is solid gold. Her Braum shockwave helm seats will see that you travel comfortably. Aiding in that comfort is the Seakeeper stabilizer.

Whether you are a commercial operator or a recreational guy with a spirit of adventure, this is an exciting vehicle adaptable to many jobs. Come take a look, you won’t be disappointed!


Vessel Walkthrough and Details

Enter by the aft cockpit, or, if in the water by swim platform between the engines. Aft end of cockpit is open. As you go forward there is seating port and starboard. Forward of that, under the hard top, there are port and starboard Braum helm chairs. There are windows wrapping from port side to front to starboard side. Installed to offshore usage with bolts/nuts to avoid any chance of them popping out in nasty weather.

Above the hardtop, we find antennas, the radar transmitter, outriggers and a short tower with bench seat. Current operator sits up there with his phone connected and runs her from there. The metal for the tower has been painted with Awlgrip to avoid the blistering found with powder coating. There is an opening hatch in the middle of the roof to provide airflow to the helm.

On centerline, all the way forward, is the entrance to below decks. The Seakeeper rests right under the first step. There are seats port and starboard going forward. Anchor locker is all the way forward.

Notes On The Hull:

Seller will be happy to explain in detail how this stock Scarab 34 became such an incredible custom offshore machine. Here’s a few hints…

Materials used…Nida-Core, Coosaboard and a poured liquid for transom.

Nida-Core decking was engineered so that it will keep the boat floating even when underwater.

Poured liquid delivered a 5” think transom that will not rot or give way to the 600 lb. engines.

Virtually all the stringers were replaced with Coosaboard and Glass.

The end result was a very strong hull that can take a lot of abuse without taking any damage. Strong and safe, the boat and her occupants come home in one piece.

Electrical:

  • Custom 12 volt/110 panel
  • Batteries: 2 AGMs for engines, 4 AGMs for Seakeeper, 2 AGMs for House
  • Pro-Tournament 360 Elite Series Battery charger by Pro Mariner

  • Two 2021 Verado AMS version outboards at 300hp with 966 Hours Port and 962 Hours Starboard
  • Two SS 4-Blade props mounted, 1 spare set for high speed runs
  • Seriously custom trim tabs, Lenco hydraulics
  • Single lever controls
  • Stainless steering wheel with adjustable tilt and “knob”
  • Hydraulic steering with power assist

Broker's Comments

Whether you are a commercial operator who is risk adverse to “down time” or a recreational user who wants to get out there no matter the weather, this is the right tool for you.

Where else are you going to find an almost bullet proof hull with the right amount of power to provide you with fast, safe passages and comfortable Seakeeper balanced motion? This is truly a unique opportunity to own the hull that Contender copied and this Owner improved on.

Don’t hesitate, call me now!

Seakeeper was off the boat for service by dealer. It was just returned to boat and reinstalled in April.2024
