Default legend marine group a JOKE?

OK, I am in the market for a 35 fountain! I have been watch one on here for several months. I don't really understand tactics of boat dealers. I have several boats for sale NOW and NO first hand this is a BAD market to sell anything let alone a go fast boat that is no long in business!

I have been following this boat for several months and have noticed the price from 65k over the winter to 69k last week to now 67k on there website. They list it as a smokin deal! here is the link:

http://www.legendmarinegroup.com/web...ition_id=10426

I am concerned for several reasons. Not sure why someone would keep raising the price to a boat that has been for sale for almost a year. The boat has been listed on OSO since march last year! SO, I called the dealer yesterday to ask them what is the deal with the boat. What is the true price and why would you raise it? I realize they are going into spring buying time but damn been on the market for a year and cant sell and now what you want to recoup your losses??? The sales guy told me they have more cost in the boat since they have held it this long! REALLY, HUMMM. sounds like you take the loss and move on!. Funny thing is I am a CASH buyer that needs to find something soon to save the tax dollars on the boat I sold! HE PROMISED TO GET BACK WITH ME ON MAINTENANCE LOGS AND COMPUTER info on motors.

You would have thought I was asking for his check book for this kind of info! Anyways, I have not even been contacted. Guess I need to find another boat! Just wasnt sure if this dealer is worthy? Has anyone else had any other issues with this dealer?

Legend Marine is a great group of people !!!!!! Known them for a while. Bought a Baja from them about a year ago with no problems. I think it's still called negotation.

Legend Marine = Very Worthy

Common practice, even when the market was good, for boats to be reduced in price during the winter months and raised back up as spring approaches. I am never offended by a asking price. Shoot them a deal.

Casey is good people at Legend. Give him a call and I bet you can work a deal on that boat.

Give Casey a call. If you are a serious buyer the difference in 65k and 69k will be no big deal. Make a serious cash offer and im sure will have a new fountain for the summer!

Some states Nortie give you a break on sales taxes if you sell and then buy within a certain amount of days. Here oin VT it's 90 days.

So if I sell a boat $100k and buy another $150k within the 90 days you get credit for the $100k you sold the other one.

Hope this helps.

Go thru the boat and if it's OK go in with $55K

I had a 35 Fountain from Legend Marine 2010.

I gave them a offer just because I did't want a boat at that time... and then I had a great boat. ....

Straight flyin guys for sure

Good luck!
