It is the standard price without an option.
maribu 05 VLX  $65300  
maribu 05 lsv  $70900
mc 04 x-star  $78000
cc 04 s-air 210 team  $66000
SUPRA 05 22SSV Gravity Edition  $66200  05 PRO X PACKAGE=$69490
tiga 05 22v riders  $58800
SESSION 22xi $60550


I investigated the price in the United States.
Then, it decided to choose my candidate.
I asked a question before.[Subject:Question from Japan]
I think that I will consider as the big point of purchase of the difference of a price with USA.

CC and MC regard me as there being few differences of a price with USA.
Therefore, I think that I will remove Maribu from a candidate.

The candidate was extracted now to Air210, Air226, or X-Star.
Although the price of 05 models of CC and MC was not decided yet, price is decided within one week.
As for 05 X-stars, price becomes cheap.
05 cc of price becomes somewhat high.

Are my idea and information mistaken?
What do you think?
Thanks for your comments and advice!!

Probably cheaper to just drive one there?

It seems to me that if you could find an honest person in the US to buy/broker a new or used boat through and have the boat shipped to you you could save quite a bit of money. Of course i am making wild assumptions about importing a boat, no duties, emission or fuel changes to the boat. Just a thought.

Are those prices in U.S. Dollars?

If so they don't seem unreasonable at all. I'm thinking shipping has to be at least 10g on something that big. Canadians for years have been paying 70-80 cdn for similar boats because our dollar was weaker compared to the U.S. dollar. You live in Japan. Buy a boat made there if you think they're too expensive.
