Does everone realize that if the boating business keeps going the way it is, all we will have left to choose from is junk, I would rather spend a little more and get all that I want than buy a boat from a Co. that is out of business, what are you guys going to do when the chit falls apart. Everyone always says buy America, well all that want a new boat need to step up, trust me I am all about saving money but I am not going to leave our AMERICAN BOAT BUILDERS OUT, and buy ones that gave up...

I bought my OL new because the sales price was over 40% off MSRP. I could have puchased the exact same boat used for just about the same amount of $$.

Didn't buy in 2009 but I bought a 2009 model in late 2008... a Formula 292. I agree that there are many good deals on used but that is the problem if you already have one also. Timing is difficult to sell one and get another hoping to do fair on both.

Buying new I was able to trade previous boat with some negative equity and still be at 30% off MSRP with much better financing than could get for used boat. For those of us that can swing the monthly payment but not a lump sum this is part of the buying decision.

I picked up a new 2009 Lavey deck with a teague 800 late last season.

Because there are major deals to be had on new boats as well as used ones.
