Yeh. When you get to the bottom of it you'll probably find it's just a plain scam. The adverts will be for boats they sold months ago and they re-run them at ridiculously low prices to generate income on their premium rate numbers.

It's not, they're a 'we will ship boat to you' in a thick Ukranian/Nigerian accent scam.

If you can find an early Ribcraft 585 it'll be just in your 12k budget though, and the Ribeye (though it'll old and have PVC tubes so I'd avoid) will be too.
