I was thinking about going to NY Boatshow in January, to check out the prices and conditions to buy the new X-star, then if i make the deal the boat must be shipped to Portugal-Europe(Euro/Dolar=1,3!). Anyone can give me advice about the Mastercraft local dealer,any suggestions about the best way to make this deal, or any other boatshow or dealer???

TXS & be safe.

My thought would be to simnply contact Mastercraft the company itself..via the website
mastercraft.com
and they should be able to walk you through the proper channels to get you an Xstar in Europe...
My buddy has an 04 x star..by far the best boat on the water!!!!

Nuno, theres only one way to do this and it would mean you shipping the boat privatly.

If you try to buy a boat to be shipped to portugal MC will make you go through mastercraft europe. run in the UK. www.mastercraft-europe.com

to get the best deal you will need to buy the boat in the US then personally ship it.

problem is, it sucks but you may have issues when trying to get any waranty work carried out on it, same with dealer support.

I would advise talkinfg with MC europe unless you already have.

just my 2 cents

there are many serious issues such as tax and warranty to be concerned with but the one thing you do have going for you is the dollar to euro is at a 20 year low asof today. So you can save some serious cash.

I agree on that part.

i guess you'll have to trade off what is worth more - re-sale, dealer support, total warranty cover with no questions asked.

or a cheaper initial investment.

I'd contact MC europe and see what they can pull together on a deal. make it clear you have the option to ship yourself

If you do a deal at the NY Boat Show...Make sure to get EVERYTHING in writing. The local MC dealer won't bend over for you at all unless it is in writing!

Hey Jared-20 year low??? The euro is a currency that is less than ten years old. It is near an all time low as of today but was only a dream 20 years ago.

Oops-my mistake, the euro has been around since 2002.

Nuno, whats the plan right now? are you still thinking about importing?
 
By Jared Aubrey (jaubrey) on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 6:32 pm:    Edit Post Delete Post
School, im sorry for the confusion but when i said the euro, i mean the currency of portugal, but portugal has been a member of the
European Monetary System, arrangement by which most nations of the European Union (EU) linked their currencies to prevent large fluctuations relative to one another. It was organized in 1979 to stabilize foreign exchange and counter inflation among members.
-since this time their currency is at a high versus the US Dollar.
