|Curiosity gets to me. I kinda like to know what people pay to compare. Regardless of the money I know if you are serious enough to be on this website then every penny ever invested in this sport was well worth it. I paid 28,500 out the door for my 06 Supreme 220 Sp. I know mcs are way up there in price just curious where everything else is placed. post um up!|
|06 VLX -no stereo-heater or shower but pretty much everything else $53 OTD|

|Maybe a better question would be what percent off of retail did you pay. That is were you can tell a good deal and a not so good deal reguardless of options. I would target 20% as a good deal. If you can get to 25% you have a great deal. Long story short first; MC I bought (2004 x-30, not the profile pic)_was 28% off. Awsome deal! |
|I got my 06 x2 for 20% off|
|Way too much.|
|$1300 bucks ;) |
|In Sept 05 I bought a new 04 VLX (1.9 Hours) for $35k |
Cover for a VLX with Titan Tower (I have a Skylon)
-cover doesn't fit - oh well, garage..
Everything else that's standard
Extreme Tandem Trailer with Swing-Away and Discs.
Did not Include:
I looked for a boat for close to a year, Almost bought 2 others. The deals are out there.. You have to look hard for them. This boat came up on boat trader (from a dealer) and I was the fastest to respond. I had called the dealer within an hour of posting it. I had to drive 3 hours to pick it up.
The boats I passed up (this was June of last year)
1) 01 X-Star w/99hrs $32k (missed this one) (NADA book at $35)
2) 04 MB B52 -decked out- for $41k (bad gutt feeling) (NADA Book at $58)

|Alot, but worth every penny!!!|
|I will never tell |
|Just bought 2003 B52 Team Edition 400 hours, has everything, 39k. Beautiful inside and out!|
|More than my truck.|
|I honestly do not know what MB boats sell for but it seems like a wake boat with 400 hours for 39k seems expensive. Am I wrong? (no harm in telling me i am wrong, i am just looking to see what the general market in the US is like.)|
|lots of money|
|it's kinda of ridiculous, i've had 3 brand new boats but never purchased a new vehicle. |
i guess my priorities actually are in order!
|my neighbor just bought a 2005 42 fountain he talked the dealership down more than my supra cost that made me feel real good|
|Way back in the stone ages (just before the pickle 2003 X-Star), I bought a 2002 X-Star (now the X-1) for $42,000. |
However, they gave me $22k for my '98 ProStar 205 (580hrs). Made it pretty painless for me.
|I paid 9 grand... Oh wait, that was my Bayliner! |
|06 bu vlx: |
|come on I know theres more than 20 people on this site.|
|I bought my 05 SSV at about 20% off. Loaded with pp and tower speakers.|
|we paid 16k for our 96 VLX |
|My 06 VLX, total out the door with tax and DMV and all my upgrades was approxamately $69,500. |
Base price was $56,258. without tax, stereo and bimini.
Titan board racks (4)
Titan tower lights (6)

2500 watts worth of amps (3)
9 cabin speakers
2 wired remote for the stereo

I'm sure I left a couple things out.
I know it doesn't sound like a deal, but to me it was a decent price on all I have gotten.
I will send updated pictures once the rain stops.
|I recieved a quote from a sanger dealer in CA so lets see if the 20% rule could be in effect. It's a private issue so I won't ask you what you paid for yours, but would appreciate some feedback. |
2006 Sanger V215, wake series 1, black scorpion, tandem trailer, tower, pop up cleats. Does not include: stereo/speakers, heater, shower, PP.
Comes with a choose 3 type of deal (racks, tower speakers etc.) and a $2K in store credit.
47,000 - I realize this is an initial OTD price quote. So should I be able to get it down to 37,600 (20%) or less? It still seems kinda high for a bare bones boat.
Not trying to hijack.......I think it's related.
|lets just say my boat costs 15 times more than my tow vehicle....and here's my puller hahaha|
|Way to go Clint. Great looking boat and that price is crazy low.|

|bstroop - Ask them what the retail price is and offer them 25% off of that. |
In the motorhome industry, the dealer cost is roughly 30% of the list price. In my experience the boating industry targets the same numbers. Most sale prices are around 15% off. Getting to the 20% mark and above takes a little work but can be done.
|T- We were way to eager and were only about 5% under retail. I'll definitely keep the 25% in the vault for the next buy. Thanks.|

|Ron - I hear ya. First boat 28% off, worked the dealer with every buyer tactic i had. Second boat not so good, 16% off. My desire for the boat was greater than my desire to save money. Not a good thing, i could have and should have saved another $5k. Although, when i walk into the shop I bought my 2nd boat, they bend over backwards at everyone of my request. Not so with the first dealer. |
|About the equivalent of 1500 gallons of gas!|

|I'm not able to say, but man is it worth every dollar! |
|I bought a 05 VLX last November and my $ss still hurts from the deal I got. But I couldn't be happier! |
|90 Malibu- $10,400, which is probably what some people can afford on accessories alone.|
|All I know if all of your boats make you as happy as mine makes me it doesnt matter what you paid for it i would do it over and over and over again. I love it man. Now for some good weather and I will be a happy guy. Until then rain |
|Can't put a price on fun.|
