    Default Lavey Craft, but what model?

    I am really liking this boat. Found it on a web page listed as a Lavey Craft. Any you guys ever seen one? Know what model it is? Looked on Lavey web page but they don't make it any longer apparently. None like it on page.

    Its a Lavey Sebring and it's sitting in my garage right now.....lol

    It's a nice looking boat and belongs to a buddy of mine in San Diego. This boat was completely restored by Jet Boat Plus in Havasu last year. It might be for sale if somebody really wanted it.....

    If you have the time, I sure would appreciate a couple pics to see what it really looks like. Maybe one of interior and one of the back. Never seen one and it really caught my attention when I came across it. If too busy, I certainly understnd that.

    Default Thnaks a ton!!

    Really appreciate you taking the time to post those up. What is that 19, 21 foot boat? What size motor is that, and how well does it push a big ole boat like that? What about the bottom of one of these boats? V, similar to Glastron, or ? Mostly just curiousity here, but what a boat like that year model ?, sell fur?

    It's a 20.5' Sebring and is a full tunnel. This particular boat has a very mild 468, pump gas with oval heads and a hyd cam. It pushes this boat right around 65 or so. Nice riding boat, but it liked the big power that it had in it before (blown 496)... Ran very good but was probably a little extreme for a daily ski boat...

    It sold for 14k last year, just for info.... I would think it could be had for CLOSE to the same.. Pretty rare boat....

    Ive had a Sebring since 93.

    Actually the model is called a 20.8 which is the length of the running surface and it has about a foot and a half of swimstep so its about a 22 foot boat overall.

    Mine is an I/O and has a medium hot small block 406 in it.

    It goes 90MPH and Ive been putting big block boats on the trailer for decades- its tremendously fun.



    I have an ITS steering system and its fully hydraulic to the helm and the thing will carve a turn at well over a g. (it has to be experienced to be believed)

    These are really cool little boats when setup correctly and run in the right water.

    This particular boat has a very rich history , and was in hot boats 1993 calendar, and was tested bu Bob Nordskog in Powerboat magazine. (It is not for sale. )
