As unreal as that looks I've been to China a couple times fitting rotary cowsheds and seen guys welding with a rag over their face and sunglasses.this does not surprise me.cheap equals nasty.

Geez this is a blast from the past. 
Na mate , my friend who was going to buy the boat pulled out of the deal.
I think he did a bit of reaserch before the boat arrived and got cold feet.
He ended up with a 640 ht from sport craft  boats from Morrinsville.
Think that was probably the sensible choice.

Stabicraft brought a Chinese copy of one of their boats and did a video. The results weren't encouraging. I think they may have put it on youtube.

I know someone who bought a 6.2m Stabi copy from China back in Dec 2019. Hull only but hull was fully loaded with full seadeck, 360 swivel bolster seats, plumbed livebait tank, wash down kit, winch, etc etc.
He got brand new outboard fitted and trailer here in NZ. Dual battery setup with smart charging, Simrad electronics the works. All up fishing on the water cost him $65k. Same Stabi 2050 with all the same specs. $130k.
I've been on his boat countless times fishing all over. 150L fuel tank and we go far, overnights and no worries. He put more than 300hrs on the new outboard over the 2.5years. 
No issues as far as I can see.

    A Good Skipper Keeps the water on the outside of the boat.
