Small world! I saw that parked in a fire department parking lot on the way to some friends in Oconomowoc last fall. Very sharp boat! If only I had $40 large burning a hole in my pocket . . .

Its actually on the high side....I think he was asking mid-40's, and many of the TT boats can be had for mid to upper 30's. I have already seen some 06 TT boats for sale that are listed at 38.

erk is right a TT boat should go for about mid to high 30's. reason being they are normally skied hard all summer.. good thing though is that the interior should be perfect since it was never used for party time..

I bought my 2002 TT in Oct. of 2002. LQ9, Powerslot, Digital PP, Heater, Zero Flex full size tower, 4 blade OJ. VERY VERY good condition. I paid 36. The Dealership that serviced the boat printed me out a complete list of options the boat had and the retail prices. etc. which came out to over 50 and they said if they had the boat they wouldn't have let it go for anything less than 42. Could be a line, but who knows.

Just a related story to chew on.

Now that I think about it, the price wasn't listed, and I just assumed the first number would be a 4! I didn't call on it because I was not serious about getting one (even though I'd love to) and didn't want to waste the seller's time. I did stop and walk around it, and showed the wife :), to plant the seed for someday down the road when we upgrade!

jlf

there are only 100 of the tt boats made. they are a little different than the production 197's mostly changes to make the boat perfect for skiing. Things like the windshield frame is black and the dash is black all for abosrbing the reflection. They also all have the same paint scheme which is different every year. I believe this boat has just over 150 hours, I might be wrong on that. It has been very well taken care of, wiped down after every use, garage stored. The price is a little higher on this boat because it has the LQ9 upgrade. The TT owners are able to choose what options they would like. This one also has a tower with one board rack and one slalom rack. Those would make the price higer than some of the others. This boat has been for sale in the market place for some time now.

It is number 72 out of 100.

just a little info for this discussion. I have an 04 tt with an lq9 and all options. tower, speakers,pp,lights,water,air temp--I mean ALL options.
i saw this boat in sept of 04. price 53,000. boat had 117hrs +/-
By late june of 05 the previous owners new tt was in and the old had to go. Long story short--I paid 38,000. The sticker on that sucker was 71,000.
If Anyone is interested in that tt 38-40k would be a great price,especially with the lq9.

Don't worry about the 310h.p.-you probably won't find one. These boats come with alot of options and it's usually what they don't have vs. what they have.
my o4 is blue solid color---i believe the o2 are red???

The T.T. boats are basically 1 year before there time. The hull and pretty much the whole boat is what is going into production the following year.

If footin' is what you are planning, be sure to at least get the MCX. I have owned a 2002 with the 310 (standard tranny) and an 2005 with the MCX (standard tranny), and the MCX is far better at holding the speed. It is also better in the slalom course, as it does not get pulled down by a hard tugging skier, like my 310 did.
Just 2 cents for ya.

#47of100TeamMC
04-19-2006, 11:30 AM
Yes, you need to be a "dealer" not in the sense of a Mastercraft dealer as in the store and such, but you need to be a registered Dealer with MC. You are guaranteed a TT boat, You pay for it out of your own pocket. But you agree to bring it to so many tournaments and Slalom clinics wakeboarding clinics barefoot clinics or what have you teamed up with the Dealer in your area who desided calls you when they schedule a tournament or a pro to come demo and they use your boat.

(Sorry the whole "dealer" dealer thing is a little confusing.) I hope you get the idea...

So are TT boats the same as Promo boats? With the promo boats, the owner (not necessarily a dealer) gets a really good deal on the boat in exchange for an agreement to take it to x number of tournaments/events each year and then sells it at the end of the season. I have a friend who was a promo guy for another boat company for years. He said, with the discounts and a LOT of work, it worked out to a free boat after about 10 years.

I would say "Yes" they are the same thing. New model every year, free boat every 10, I think I could work with that :)

I wonder who in the end takes the big hit on the price of the boat. Like I said previously I paid +/- 32k less than the sticker for a boat that was about 10 months old. Is it dealer and owner who work the difference?
The guy I bought my tt from gets a new one every year..every year!! Fully loaded bla bla bla..
Now, you either have some serious jingle or these 70k stickers are bs and they sell the boats each year for what they paid.
I'm clear on why they get the boats,but does anyone know the financial arrangements?

From what I understand, the boat is sold at a discount (which could be dealer/mc cost) to the TT member. The TT member is also then responsible for making a monthly payment on the boat. I am sure that the payment is basically enough to just cover the depreciation amount on the boat so that when the next model boat arrives they are able to pay off one boat and pay on another.

Make sense?

just a quick point to how the whole thread started... if you are considering a 197, look at tt boats. They are always loaded with options and you'll pay a great price for them...if you consider 40k a great price..
I learned to ski behind a 16' sears boat bought out of a catalog and a 50h.p. evinrude someone gave to my dad. Toatal cost..About 550$
Amazing when i look at the old pics and see whats pullin me/you now.

Some people just "have to have" a new boat in the garage every year. So, if that is the case, a TT program might be the ticket for you.

MC takes the hit on the price. But I believe it's written off as Advertising. cuz that's basically what the TT boats are. at Tournaments, Clinics etc. The guy I bought mine from said he has 1 guy that gets his everyother year boat. I just happend to get him on an off year for whomever that was. He told me he sells it for what he bought it for which was mid-upper 30's. so his expense is his interest through his bank for the summer.

Agreed, if your in the market for a 197. Look at the T.T. I looked for over a year before I found one close enough to my location and what I wanted. Supposedly the LQ9 is an $8k upgrade.

Yeah I know some people just "have to have" most of the times it for cars. I live in the northeast...maybe I get 5 months to ski.
Doesn't matter to me.. it keeps the economy going.

The LQ9 is a VERY expensive upgrade, 8k sounds about right :)

If your like going to the tournaments, and your going to be there even if you don't have the boat, might as well get a "free" boat for the season out of it as well.

nope, same hp more than you need but its what it is. Besides bragging rights(which mean nothing) I would go with the mcx. The lq9 is just too much$$$
I paid 38 with the lq9..you probably will pay 37 without. Of course I'm talking late model used tt. somebody had to suck up that xtra $$ up. Been pulled by both and once your at skiing speed it really doesn't matter whats under the hood.
I'll tell you one thing though..you hit the hammer on the lq9 and I don't care who you are, you can't hang on.

That is what i think the biggest advantage to the lq9...fottin. Will get you where you wanna go fast out of the hole. speed wise my boat will do about 53. I don't foot so I have no need for those speeds. The other big advantage is you can load the boat down with people and pull skiers with no problem. Of course I'm talking kids because we are all to spoiled to have our wake "ruined" by all that weight. As most of you know with kids..they love being in the boat when all there buddies are going

just sit back and watch the gas guage..and I'm not kiddin.. all you hear is this woosh of air being sucked in by the k&n and then when you slow down you realize you just spent 17.50 to see how fast the boat goes!!!!!

Those were my thoughts. And doesn't the LQ9 require 93 octane?

hahaha, Absolutely. Sounds all too familiar! You definatley hear the K&N sucking for air! I've got a 4blade stainless OJ prop and I'm topping out at about 52mph. Last 4th of July we had the boat Packed with people. 2 up front, 2 beside me and 4 in the back all adults. (that's 9 people for you math majors) and I nailed the throttle... and I could only get it up to 51.5mph

Although, the Fancy computers Retard the timing if it needs to, ie, if you can't find the "good" Gas. Although I haven't tested it out... It likes the good stuff, it told me.

JLF.... Who's boat is that? Was it from the Ad?
This boat belongs to someone I know. I have skied behind it and all, even spent time wiping it down. The boat is in southern WI. The pictures that I have are from the day after the boat was brought home and he was spending some time breaking the engine in. It is a good boat and has been very well taken care of.

Not just anyone can go buy a TT boat you have to be in the program to get one. This guy did happen to be in the right place at the right time. He had a friend who was in the program and wanted to get out so the dealership that guy was associated with asked if he knew anyone else who might want to do the program, hence my friend got in the program. He does spend a lot of time driving the boat or sitting at tournaments that he is not able to ski in. The TT program is work, it isn't just a new boat every year. The owner of the boat is responsible for selling the used one at the end of the season before the new one arrives.

If you have any other questions you can PM me.

I also have more pictures if you want to see them.

You buy the boat just like anyone else, from a dealership. It is yours, you register it and all like everyone else. To stay in the program you have to earn so many points (by taking the boat to clinics/tournaments and so on). It is up to you if you want to sell the boat or not, if you are rich I suppose you could keep it and just buy another one. You make the payment or whatever depending on how you paid for it. When you sell it the money is yours to do with whatever you choose. I know my friend will use the money to pay off the boat, then he will buy the '06 TT.

Possibly I think we've had this discussion before. Out of curiosity how did you get involved with helping him try to sell this boat?

ah no definetily not....I just happen to know the boat pretty well and thought I'd add to your pictures since I had some closer up ones and some of the interior too, anything to help him get rid of that boat so he can move on with his '06 I am sure his is dying to unload that thing by now.

The pictures I posted are of his boat, I have plenty more, I spent several hours myself last summer behind that boat, I've even driven it too, let is sit in my driveway for a day or two also.
