I agree- 2 and 3 years ago there were deals to be had. I think the industry has adjusted its inventory to meet the lower demand and there seems to be less wiggle room to negotiate. Also less manufacturer incentives than a couple of years ago. :thumbsdown:

This is my personal observation on the few manufacturers and boats that I was looking at. Maybe others observed differently.

Best deals in my opinion:
1 27 sea hunt cc for 74k with twin 150yamis
2. 25 tidewater cc with twin 150 yamis for 65k

But man do I luv those everglades..just too much money for my liking

The 37' Boston Whaler center console at the AC show was $429K after a $50K discount. The boat was awesome but that price is crazy. I agree that the 27' Sea Hunt seemed like a bargin when compared to all of the other 27-29' boats that were near or above $200K.

I thought so too.

:nuts:I would think that some were sold with OPM. Auditors will be the last to know. Chesapeake Bay Marinas are loaded with big boats that never leave their slips. Maybe we even helped buy them !! Norm

you would think they might bring boats that someone could actually afford,or at least the general public. thats y i dont go to those things. i couldnt afford anyway but still isnt there boats under 35 grand a middle class guy could buy? or just rub in our faces what we can never afford

I bought my boat last year at the show. Suprisingly I think I got a good deal. I compared it to the sea hunt sea fox and the mako and for the options and engine I wanted I couldn't pass it up. That being said I'm not going this year

In National Fisherman I saw a Maine built 16 foot dory center console with just a seat and steering station ,with a 70 H.P Yammie on the back. Nothing else included!!! Just bare bones. No trailer. Not even a small T top! Price: $37,000.00 and if you upgraded to a 90 Horse ,$39,000.00.

Anybody that buys that rig has been playing way too much pocket pool over the years or has been spending way too much time with Madam Palm and her 5 followers!:eek:

Love to see the higher prices. Makes my 10 year old Parker worth just about what I paid for it.

Boat Prices assume 80% financing. So if you buy a $100K rig and put $20K down with a payment of $675 month. They bank on you using the rig for 5-6 years then reselling for $50K.. Sounds crazy cause it is. but that's what they assume. If you go this route you are killing yourself. Buy used (well taken care of).. :D
