Out of curoisity, what is this dealerships name. I would like to see there inventory.

Currently they are at $211,000 list and taking off $34k/$177,000 just for a start. I would prefer a boat w/496mags which the afore mentioned boat is, but this dealer sells and orders mostly 350's. Claims thats all thats needed on LOTO and the price difference is not worth it in resale later. He is at $140k on a boat MSRP $188k (350s).

1st it depends on your needs. It you are just looking for more average cruising then the 350's will get the job done. If you are looking for a little more go then buy the 33ss with the 496's. I think this boat will perform much better with the 496's and will be more efficent....i.e. can push the boat easier on plane with less effort then the 350's......longer engine life etc....

If he brings them to Jersey they will move right away, and nobody will know where.

Thanks for the link

Assuming and est 4-5% increase in pricing from MY 04 to 05 it would appear they have more room available to come down on the 496 package b/c the one I prefer is near equal w/options to yours.

The Formula Financing special they have going on until March 31st. Has it been you experience they only do this during the fall/winter months. Currently doing 2.55 x 24 w/6.99 thereafter.

Thanks again for everyones imput.

A friend and I went to St Louis boat show last Feb to look at a 37PC for him. This was not his first boat from Glen Cove. They claimed they were offering him a price which would not last past the boat show. A couple days ago down at the lake they called him to offer it again, over 10 months later. The exact same boat.

I have nothing against Glen Cove, but their best deal, like other dealers, is rarely their best deal.
