Customers Malibu Boat stolen and stripped

Recommended Posts

Bake's Marine

This is a long shot but it's really disturbing when I see things like this so I want to do everything I can to catch this guy. Last week a customer of Bake's had his 2006 Malibu Response LXI stolen and they stripped the boat in a really bad way.

If you are cruising Craigslist or E-bay and happen to come across anything that looks fishy, could you drop me a e-mail? The things i figured you would see on line are the gages, wedge, and other specific Malibu fabricated parts like dash panels and swim step brackets.

I think we would all love to see the cops catch the person that did this.

Paul,

Maybe it would be good if you had a list of options? Obviously people need to be watching for any interior with gray accents & yellow piping, but did the boat have a heater, Perfect Pass, shower? What motor? What about a power wedge? You get the idea.

That's what insurance is for but no one wants to go through that. Really hope someone catches these guys and hangs them out to dry.

Hopefully karma finds them on an early morning swim through a slalom course...

Now that I look at the picture again you would think it would have been easier and much quicker to take the entire boat trailer and all.

Ouch, really don't hear or see this too often, how the heck is anyone going to sell any of that stuff?

It's not like these parts have a wide application like if someone steals a drive off an I/O

I haven't puked since I had the flu like 10 years ago, but if that were my boat I would probably become physically ill. That's just horrible. So what happens to the hull, it gets crushed? I assume the boat is "totalled", the owner gets a check and the insurance company disposes of the boat? I'd even feel guilty about that, like I'm abandoning my badly injured best friend. Ugh.

Hey, I need some of those parts for my 06 LXI...j/k...bad joke.

Ya, that must have taken a while, but since it was not sitting on the curb, I figure the theif had all the time in the world.

Where did they recover the boat?

I'm always browseing craigslist and ebay. I will keep an eye out for them.

This Sucks, I know from personal experience it feels like you have been personally violated.

Good luck.

Does anyone else sense a circular effect with this? Especially since the theft looks fairly clean (no ripped stuff like they were yanking stuff out of the boat). Steal a boat and strip everything it has. Wait for insurance or owner to write off the boat and sell the remaining "boat". Purchase the "theft recovery" for minimal cost. Put all the crap you stole off the boat right back on. Seems like a total circular effect. Heck you could even do it with multiple boats if they are the same platform. If anyone out there is buying salvaged or used boats that were former theft recoveries you should ask to see receipts for the items installed. Even then the criminal could falsify the receipts but regardless I could see someone doing this very thing and making a lot of money. The only exposure is the initial theft, then its all gravy.

I hadn't made that leap in my mind, but initially my thought was that this is such a specific niche product.....it's not the same as stealing a Honda & stripping it clean like that. What I had considered though is your point about how they were thoughtful about what they did, which indicates that they were going to use those items, whether to sell or actually in fact use.

It will be interesting to see who ends up with the hull. I'm sure that the authorities have thought of all of this though & are watching.

I think you need to look closer at the picture. It looks to me like the dash and throttle were cut out with a Sawz-all and the carpet is torn, just forward of the engine compartment.
