Some SCARAB Boats Owner's Manuals PDF above the page.
The brand’s history began in the 1970s when California racer Larry Smith designed a deep V hulled boat called the Scarab.
On his boat, the Scarab 29 Smith won several offshore races in 1974. Thinking about the prospects of his brainchild and wanting to accelerate its development, Smith turned to Wellcraft, which at that time had been producing cruise speed boats for more than 20 years.
So there was a new Wellcraft Scarab line in which the latest technologies and materials were applied at that time, in particular, Kevlar.
In 1984, Wellcraft became part of the holding company Genmar Industries.
In 2009, after the bankruptcy of Genmar Holdings, its assets and several brands, including Scarab, were sold to the California Platinum Equity Group for $ 70 million.
Scarab boats use Rotax Engines.
