I did it, I bought this 1995 218CCF with an Evinrude 200 Ocean Pro 2 Stroker, and 9.9 Yamaha kicker. Looks like she sat a bit, it had an electric fuel pump hooked to a GPH gauge that didn't work. Stuck us out in the middle of Puddingstone lake,(Bonelli Park, San Dimas, CA) We have since drained all the fuel, removed the GPH gauge and pump, installed a Holley Mighty Mite electric pump, new fuel/water separator filter, plugs, vacuum lines that were broke. Our hope is Sunday is going to be a great day at the lake, then after everything works for a couple lake trips, point it towards Catalina...
Hope to see some more of these beauties out there on the water.

Can anyone direct me in obtaining the manual for this boat? I called Wellcraft directly with no response. I am also looking for the engine model number which I can't find; I looked in the obvious places. I did, however, retrieved the block number which denotes a GM 350 short block. I am just looking for a layout of the engine so I can do my own maintenance.

Glad to have found this forum and thank you for adding me. Just purchased a 1991 St Tropez 3300 with 454 mercruisers. Only been out twice so far and this boat is amazing. Had a full survey done and passed with flying colors. Anyone know how much weight the arch can support? I want to add a dome radar and some rod holders to it. Thank you for any info on this model.

Nice to e-meet y'all. I'm Jim in New Jersey and just picked up a 270 Coastal tournament edition. We were looking for the smallest, yet practical boat to weekend on, with an enclosed head and mid-berth. So this boat checks all the boxes. It does have some small issues, as the boat was sitting unused for most of its life. It's my first stern drive boat, so this should be an adventure (did someone say I need a bow thruster). Looking forward to the adventure.

I have owned my boat for 26 yrs bought her brand new! She has always run like new and garaged. However, my poor girl is showing signs of dry rot need to explore further by digging into her some. Where can I find something like a blueprint or detailed repair manual for my boat? They only made a few of my year's make and model. She of course is the first and only boat I have owned! Trying to educate me as much as I can to get her looked at and fixed. Hoping it's not reached the entire transom area. Thank you

I have always been a fan of the late 80's Wellcraft boats. I specifically wanted a 24' Nova with twin small blocks and captain's choice. But then an '89 210 Classic just fell into my lap. The PO wanted out of it because he had upgraded his house, and with the extra home costs, he had to cut somewhere. Anyway, the Classic is mine now. She needs some work. I have a great canvas maker as a friend, so covers and seats will be pretty easy to handle. Some engine work was needed to get her running, and it still needs a bunch of cleaning! But this old boat is starting to come around. At this point, I am 2 weeks from the opening of my marina. I'm counting the days. I took possession of the boat very late in the season last year. I had enough time to run half a tank of gas through it before the marina closed up.
I have been buying parts and upgrades for it all winter. I'll be adding shore power, a new side scan sonar, new magnesium anodes (Lake Michigan boating), motor mounts, stereo, and lighting.
I am here because there a few parts that are proving to be terrible to find. I'll mention it here and then post in the parts section. The PO pulled on the port side front windshield. It shattered. He threw it all away! I finally found one from a 190 Classic, but it is an inch too narrow. I'd like to find the correct one for this boat. I also am struggling to find the sliding door that closes off the cabin. The PO's dad bought this boat brand new, but the PO doesn't know where the sliding door is! I have a lead on one, but the guy that is parting the boat out is hard to communicate with, and the door was supposed to be on its way to me on Monday, but here it is Friday and no response to my messages. So, I am looking for that plexiglass slider that was in only a couple of models and years of the Wellcraft. Any leads would be appreciated. I am going to resurrect this pretty old boat!

2017 262 Fisherman:
I've noticed a sound coming from the stern that sounds like a pump running when the boat is completely shut down and batteries turned off. I looked to see what it is and can't determine the cause. Has anyone had this happen or know what's going on?
(I took a video and will share if someone could tell me how to post a video)

As a new owner, I have many questions and felt joining this group would be a great start.
My first question is, what happened to Wellcraft website? I've tried numerous times to order parts yet the site is down.
