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 about.

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.

It drives like a Cobalt - fast, sporty, dry ride.

Mariahs are the DeLoreans of boats. httpwww.mariahownersclub.comforumoriginal-mariah-talk We bought this boat, not knowing a Mariah from anything, and the longer we owned it, the better it got.

Ours was in Idaho for its first decade - freshwater only.

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 full kit 1996 Mariah Shabah 180 2011 4.3L V6 Mercruiser block Custom "Chariot" trailer with swingawaylocking hitch Full-length custom Sunbrella cover, fits like a glove 1 high-end slalom ski, 1 pr adult skis, 1 pr kids skis Full set of life jackets 2 tow lines handles "Big Bertha" tube This is a turnkey family boat.

We've been really happy with her in our kids-and-boat years.

Time for the next generation to have some fun.

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

Try a Mariah instead.
