Default New Member 2001 3300SCR

Hi, new guy here. Just bought a 2001 Maxum 3300 SCR. Boating out of Toledo Ohio area. It was a repo and needs some elbow grease and some outdrive work and should be good to go. Any advice for this boat would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome aboard

Did you have the boat surveyed? If not have the bellows inspected and raw water pump. Have you tested all systems to endure they work?

Have you owned a boat before? If not a boating class to learn the rules is recommended.

What questions do you have?

Post some pictures.

Welcome - I recently picked up an '03 3300 SCR that needs some work as well. Not my first boat, but certainly the biggest and most complex I've owned, with all its amenities / creature comforts. A survey is a great idea so you can learn all of the issues it's got - hit the major ones first, then once you have the running gear seaworthy, you can get to the more minor stuff as time and budget permit.

The boat was surveyed but it was already out of the water and winterized so didn't get to run the motors or check water system. Water pump does work. My brother in law is a mechanic so the engine work cost will be a minimum. There are a couple issues that I need some advice on....

1. Needs a new fridge. Any suggestion on type brand size would be appreciated. Are they hard to install?

2. Port bench seat seems like it needs some support in the middle. Seems like a pretty poor design. Any suggestions to fix this? I assume people have had the same issue .


If I think of more I will post. Thanks for the help.

I was referring to the raw water engine pump impeller not the fresh water pump, since you did not run the engines you'll have to wait till spring.

Frankly I would not buy a boat without running them in the water as they are the most likely thing to have an issue and the most costly.

Freg is easy to install but I'll let others with this model say what units they have.

Regarding the seat check the sport cruiser for this project as others have developed solutions.

I found a cooler that fits perfectly under that port side bench seat. Keep my extra lines in it. No problem with 3 sitting on it.

Great idea CGG! Do you happen to know the make and model of that cooler?

Thanks for the idea.

My port bench has a hinged leg in the center along the front edge with a rubber boot on the bottom.

Went up into my '03 3300 this afternoon and took a good look at the fridge. It's a Norcold model DE0041 dual voltage unit. Pic attached. Found it online for $999.99 at West Marine: NORCOLD DE-0041 AC/DC Refrigerator/Freezer | West Marine

Welcome. The 3300SCR is a great boat. We have been living on ours for 5 years now in Australia. Use it every weekend. We replaced our fridge with a new Waeco unit and it has been great! I have the same problem with the seat, a centre strut is a great idea. What engines do you have? I hope someone can please tell me about how the two battery switches are wired? Lol
