When I can buy a boat like this for $200K:


    Why on earth would I want to buy a new 25' boat for more???

I know MSRP means jack, but... if you take $215K and pull 20% from it you get $172k - for a 25' boat, and no trailer! So, (the mfg.) jacks up the overall pricing - offers sweet "mfg. finance rates", and you end up pre-paying a big chunk your financing by basically financing more $$$... yep, I get it!

    I like Brian's idea - $120K for a truly custom - real 28' - boat, all set, ready to go, annnnnd you get a trailer so you don't need to drag it by the d-ring down the street!?

    I was told that they are being VERY agresive with the real world prices.
    Put your best foot forward!
