Team Scarab was one of the most winning offshore boat makers for a time. Hardly wannabes. You're thinking of the later Wellcraft boats.

The 527 runs less boost, and has a different ECU tune. Also, to keep the price down, the cowl is limited in color, a different design, and no LED lights on the 527.
