1996 Mariah Shabah
| Call Boat Owner Matthew 360-746-2096.Basic Decription: 1996 Mariah Shabah 180 RunaboutSki Boat with NEW
engine block. |
The original Mariah company 1989-2001 owner, Jimmy
Fults, set out to make the best boat in the world, competing with the
top-end brands like Cobalt.
This 1996 Shabah is what the brand was all
The Shabah is the classic runabout layout - kids up front, 4-5
passengers in the back and a very comfy drivers seat.
The bimini top
is stable when you're blasting along at 30, but I can stand up
straight beneath it at 6'-3".
The attention to construction detail was
just amazing - soundproofing drops engine noise dramatically. 60mm
vinyl is 3x the thickness of Bargainliner starter boats.
like a Cobalt - fast, sporty, dry ride.

We've kept it that way - Lake Whatcom and one amazing
Ross Lake outing, that's it.
No saltwater, ever.
An incredible freeze
in 2011 cracked the block - my loss, your gain, because this boat
sports a NEW 4.3L Mercruiser block, with 32 hours on the new motor The

really happy with her in our kids-and-boat years.
Time for the next

Yeah, you could buy a wimpy 4-banger, but
then you'd wonder why Junior was drowning instead of skiing.
