Anyone ever trade in a boat or is that just asking to be abused...?
If you get a dealer that's willing to work with you, a trade in situation may work.
I traded my '03 Maristar 230 for my '05 X-star. I used the Maristar for 2 seasons and the dealer gave me $35K for it....I bought it for $40K. Plus I only had to pay sales tax on the difference so that helped.

With that said, you really should try to sell it yourself. That boat should be in high demand if it's as clean as it looks. Try the usual sites like onlyinboards.com, boattraded.com, ebay, wakeworld, etc. Good luck.

BTW, love that Ducati!

I will get some more pics of interior etc. Sucks that it's 30 degrees outside or I would give it a proper wash and shoot some pics in the sunlight.

Trust me besides the little doc rash that I was quoted $600 to fix every small blemish it's beautiful.

I take care of my things mechanically and cosmetically. I had a hard time even getting over the small scratches from use....

Just curious but why did you have to replace your fuel pump on such a new boat...

And what about the "blown exhaust manifold"...

MC's are infamous for burning out fuel pumps if you let the tank go below 1/4. Especially prior to '07 ish

Both teething issues of 2007, unfortunately I was hit with both! So fuel pump was under warranty and replaced. The welds of the exhaust manifold/tip were weak and the center portion with the MC logo in the tip just falls out. This version of exhaust does not have the rubber flappers.

I havent decided what is the best option for the manifold. Might leave that up to the new owner.....

see here on the issue http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=49767


I think I am going to price it at $38K with a manifold fixed/replaced. $37K as is. Of course I am open to reasonable offers as well.

Now I need to find the time to take some pictures of everything.....

Why not talk to Eric and see what he can do on a trade for a new deck boat?

That might be an option, I have been looking at the Yamaha 242 Limited S.
