I have owned many boats and just found and purchased what I believe to be a very rare boat. It is in excellent condition and has been in storage and not seen water for over 20 years now. Title says its a "Jetaboat" year 1977. Strory from seller and notes and receipts are. The Owner had this boat custom built in1986 (paid 21,000 for boat and 4,500 for custom matching trailer) it is a brand new GM factory replacement twin staggered corvette 350 motors with twin berkley JE-A pumps with hydraulic ride plate, only run in Lake Shasta in the 80's and 90's he had a matching custom van also. He now has alzheimers and the family is liquidating all his stuff. Any info or help on this boat would be great. 1st off searching for Jetaboat I can't find anything. Does anyone know of this manufacturer? Hull id is MWB boat is listed as 21' 6"

Are you sure the first 3 letters of the HIN are MWB? All I found was this info.

That is a wicked-looking boat! That’s a lot of engine! Hope the fuel tank(s) is really big.

@Mayor Here are some useful links. (Great lead by @zipper ) The short of it is that your boat was probably built by “The Boat Shop” and they went out of biz in 1986. My Web Services, because that was so interesting, is a subsidiar/holding company for MarineMax, they probably bought or inherited MWB in one of their transactions. (My Web Services does or did hold the Galeon US yacht brand.)
