Default Re: New Formula FasTech pricing - WTF!?!?

a few years ago I was pricing a Donzi 33 ZX - already talked to a local dealer - could do it for 140-150ish.
Went to a boat show - sales sticker said 260,000 - I asked Joe sales guy, let's get real on this thing - what ya selling for??
He say's " that's it right there".
I was only 28 - so, the sales guy figured it was a joke. At the time I could handle 130, and I was seriously looking, and I knew what I wanted.

So the real price is over 100,000 less than MSRP on this boat??

It's all so confusing - my head hurts now...

If you get around 20% off list/sticker then you are in the ballpark normally on these type of boats. But still that boat would be around $150k...way over priced for a Formula or any 24-29' boat.

That is for a 25' (real length) production-built boat! Am I nuts or does that seem just flat-out crazy!?!?
I saw a Formula 2007 271 with a single 496HO with a dealer price tag of $106,000 last weekend at the Hydro races.

I can get a 35' fasTech Sport with T-496 HO's for 170K.

The 35' had the 3 tone paint option..head...sound system...the 27' lightly loaded.

But yea...you can double the price of a Porsche' Carrera as well if you put all the options on it....same with these boats...

Plus trailer...taxes etc..

24-27% off at the dealer in Northern Michigan..he will ship anywhere..he is the lowest priced anywhere...169K for a 35' FasTech lightly loaded...no trailer...plus tax..that's a good deal in my books.

It's because of the cost to build them now with the OIL being so out of control. I was talking to Terry Sobo at Nortech about building a new boat and he said same boat from 2005 to 2006 50K more in build cost 70k more from 05 to 07.

HUH? Okay Robert.....my head is spinning after reading that!!!
