I was curious if anyone could provide some feedback on your experience when buying boats from dealers. Is there much wiggle room or do they mostly stick to the listed price? I'm sure there are a lot of things that can factor into this, but I'm pretty new to this so any information would be great. I tried to search the forums to see if this had been posted already, so if it has I apologize.

New boats or used boats? When I bought my used boat in 2001 my dealer wasn't to flexible but it was a different market and were not talking about Bayliners. :)

Used isn't nearly as negotiable as new.

There are a lot of factors when talking used. Mostly its model related. A used 205v/x1 or an x-15 is not going to have same margin as an x star. The market is flooded with x stars. Would help better if u had an idea of what boat model you were interested in yr wise and price wise. It's much easier to give u an idea of what u should pay for certain boat rather than make a general discount off whathey are asking

Im looking at a 2011 X25 for $76,500 that has 78 hours. It was the dealers demo boat.

Sounds like a lot of hours for a demo boat. Maybe more like a promo boat for that dealership? I'm not sure what a new X-25 sold for in 2011....maybe some X-25 owners will add some comments about that.

have you seen the one here on TT marketplace?

Well that too is a whole different ball game. To be an actual dealer demo make sure it wasn't registered. This will allow you to get a true "dealer demo ". This will qualify you for new boat loan rates as well. The 25 is a new boat and I can't help you in the going rate. 78 hours to me isn't a lot for a demo. Our demos here by me are ran 5 hrs plus a day usually 2 days a week.

For the most part they usually sell before they hit 50 but I can see 78 not being that far off

My dealer threw me a pretty good deal off the top for a new X25. I tried moving and there was almost no wiggle room. That being said am happy with the price.

It all depends on how it's equipped. Out the door pricing for 2011s was anywhere from 80k to the moon depending on what you added to it.

$76K?for a boat... wow...a price I can not even fathom...not even in that league... there are some great older boats that could save you a bunch of dough unless that does not even effect your bottom line. 78 hours... that's nothing... price seems ok though...for that price they should throw in full tank of gas and a 32Gig Ipod...:rolleyes:

what about the break in, is that important? i mean if a dealer had it do you think they followed the break in period? does that have an effect on it?

Tell us what options and engine it has.... My boat has 84 hours on it, and I would not sell it for $78k..... Mine has a 6.2l though, and is loaded except for power tower and Salt package.

I am going to try to sell my 2011 X25 this winter, and maybe order a new one in Canadian Flake/Black. Probably price it at 84k, and see if it moves. If it doesnt, no prob, I really like this one anyway. I really want a Flaker though :D

To be honest I'm not sure what options are on the boat. I just started looking and talked briefly to the dealer about the boat. I was really just curious if in general they come off the price, but it sounds like I need to get more information before I ask question like this. :) I appreciate the feedback everyone provided.

You got to do a lot of boating (many times a week) to get 78 hours over one season. Sounds like it was very well used.

Depending how loaded the X25 is, up here in Canada a loaded X25 can be had for around 100K, I think base price was around $75-80K.

In the past 6 years I've averaged about 100 hours. Granted not even half were actually towing someone. Lots of cruising and hanging on the lake for the day.

When I was just skiing the slalom course, I did a solid 30 hours a year, and skied my tail off. Of course, we used other people's boats, lived right in front of the course and didn't cruise. I used to wonder how folks could put so many hours on a boat. With kids, tubes, wakeboards and a much bigger lake to explore, I now ski less and put a lot more hours on the boat. Not sure which is "harder" or "easier" on the boat, but it is all fun!
