Is it safe to say that 25% off the retail price is about what you would be paying for either of these?
Fountain at $754,795 and OL at $989,751...Man, Mikey sure is proud of his boats.

Epoxy hulls cost more to make. $750,000 isn't cheap either when you think about it.

Nobody ever takes a bath when selling a Fountain........

The price difference on the new boats makes sense because its a custom boat vs. a production boat.

I'm sure they do but...would a 25% off the sticker be fair for the boats mentioned?

Outerlimits boats ARE overpriced. Buts thats ok because Mike is still selling them.Cigarette has overpriced their boats as well.These custom builders are pushing the prices skyward and out of reach for the average performance boater.989K for that boat is ridiculous.
