Default Possible Contender 31 Steal...

I know, I know! If it's too good to be true, it probably is. Just found this on Craigslist. The 202 area code is a Washington, DC number. It's either a scam or the guy lives in DC and his dad was down here.

2003 31 Contender for $29,000. I've tried studying the pics. Same yellow color. Just can't tell if it's the same boot stripe color in both pics. First pic shows a white top with a Raymarine radar. Second pic shows a blue top and 2nd station. Also, the Yamaha's are different in the pics.

Someone may be about to make about $100,000 on a resale or buy a 31 for CHEAPPPP!

two different boats in the pics..... seems like a scam. Might be worth a little wasted time to find out, never know.

That boat was posted (and sold) here on THT in 2016 . Advertised as a 2006 . Can't copy the link for some reason .

It's also up multiple times with different ages on this site , again can't seem to copy the link . Screenshot...

Yep no way its legit. Different t-tops one is white the other blue. One is a stand through the other not, one has radar the other not. Cash only deal!!

Although I said the same thing about a Jeep a month or so ago and missed out on a screaming deal.

I get it’s a scam but I’ve never understood the “end game” for the scammer. Are they hoping someone buys the boat sight-unseen and wires them money without ever laying eyes on the boat... do people really do that?

Even if it wasn't a scam it's a 31 contender so it'll need fuel tanks and have soft hatches per tht

You wouldn’t have happen to have saved a Nigerian prince at some point in the last few years?
