$300,000 Boat Stolen from Fort Myers Beach House

A neighbor’s surveillance footage caught thieves at a Fort Myers Beach house stealing a boat.

Homeowner, Jason Quilling, says the boat was on a power lift in his backyard.

The thieves stole a $300,000 Chris Craft Catalina, which the owner bought in May.

We talked with a boat sales representative at Sports Boat Marine who says some boat owners are turning to technology to make sure this doesn’t happen. It’s called Spot Trace and it’s a theft-alert tracking device. It tracks the location and speed of the boat.

Quilling is offering a reward of $20,000, if the boat is found and returned.
