Default Possibly unsafe website

My brother bought a 2001 Mariah Diablo 180, so I've been trolling your website for information to help along a few repairs. Thank you for letting me in.

I started looking for a similar boat for myself as I expect him to go home one day along with his boat. I searched several sites and came across one that appears dubious:
boats-from-usa.com
  • There are many boats that are duplicated many times. Some of the prices are amazingly low.
  • You have no ability to search other than manufacturer or a few locations.
  • If you chose a boat and scroll down to the bottom right corner, there is an arrow which takes you to a Russian website.
  • There is no indication as to when the boats were posted.

Please be cautious.

    Thanks, there are a lot of scams out there! Your best bet for searching for mariah boats is going to be on the two mariah facebook pages! Check them out or facebook marketplace in general.

    There will be lots of old ads out there. Best bet is to use this site, the FB site, and reliable boat sales pages like boat trader. Most of the time, a member will advertise their boat for sale on this or the FB site first to give first chance to a member.

    The 2 Facebook groups are:

    Mariah Boat Owners

    Mariah Boat Owners Club

    Both are (relatively) safe places to search for a boat.
