What year and model is this boat

Postby Patmaleki » Tue Mar 10, 2020 9:03 am

Hi all,

Just registered. A neighbor offered this boat to me for next to nothing. I have not had a chance to look at it in-depth but it seems to be a Wellcraft 18 fish? Any idea what model it actually is and year of make? It was repowered with a mid 2000’s Suzuki 115 which is a plus. Any info on this boat would be greatly appreciated. Pat

Thanks Bill... After some more research it seems to be an 89-90 Fish. Are there any issues with this hull other than the waterline being low in the stern? I am new to Wellcrafts and really have a lot of Whaler knowledge. The floors seem fine as I could not find any soft spots. It will really just need a cleaning and minor upgrades. I am specifically interested if these boats have a wooden construction and if they have a track record of leaking gas tanks... Anyone have any experience with these models?

Anything in the 80's make sure you check the stringers and transom real good as they have been known to go bad
