Plan B, Anyone familiar w/ Seebold Powerboats?

Post by shellyisland » May 17, 2011 6:11 pm

Ok, based on the overwhelming response to a recore for sale :lol: It appears that I will saving my $ for a recore but I need my own boat in the meantime. Briefly considered switching to camping, then it would have to be by water, then I would see boats, then I would have to have a boat...boat and camper are even more work.
Sooo, found a 92 Seebold 21' Sport Eagle. Owner is willing to separate engine (200+ Merc) and hydraulic jack.
I plan to move engine and jack from Valero to this boat for the summer. I am just a LITTLE concerned about a company that was in business for five years...they made some really nice boats though. Please tell me no balsa ;)

I can't tell you if it's got a core but from what I have read they are well made boats.

Thanks, it does have fiberglass deck under carpet. Still researching...overall it looks like a good deal.
Just don't want a recore while saving for my recore :0)

Don't know what type of core was used in the seebold but would imagine balsa was used. They are nice looking boats with a fast and fairly stable hull in moderate chop. The 21 ft eagle with a stock 350 c.i. merc would put you in low 70's proped right. After market exhaust and mild cam put it mid 80's. I only rode in it one time and was impressed with the plane time and it hit 85 quickly.

Seebold himself had a good reputation in the race circut years ago , not sure what is going on with him these days.

Thanks for the info. I really like the look of of the boat...not the generic Baja etc that is so common now. I hadn't heard of Seebold before seeing this one. Actually, it is a Sport Eagle that has a 225 Merc. outboard...looks like most Seebold's were i/o's though and big? Well, I will be taking a ride next weekend before purchase. Get Valero fixed and swap '99 225 Merc for '87 175 and hydraulic for manual jack...set to go :boating: Wife ain't quite buying my "master plan" :)

Bill Seebold Sr. passed away on 2/1/2007. I can't find any reference to Seebold boats though. I did find reference to Seebold props and a lot of racing history...they were (are) quite the dynasty. Sons still racing and a reference was found here.
