I had read a post not too long ago about boat scams on eBay. I have a buddy that is pretty serious about purchasing a boat and found this one on eBay.( <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&amp;item=2488360739&amp;ind exURL=5&amp;photoDisplayType=2#ebayphotohosting" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&amp;item=2488360739&amp;ind exURL=5&amp;photoDisplayType=2#ebayphotohosting</a> ) He is thinking about making a move. <BR> <BR>I just wanted to get some opinions and tips. <BR> <BR>Thanks!

I'd say the most important thing is to go check out the boat. I would also think title transfer has to be an issue. It's a brand new boat and unless the guy has that title, he's using your money to pay for the boat. That means a couple of weeks at least to get the title in your hands. <BR> <BR>Buyer Beware.

Seems like a good price for a well kept boat. I don't think it's a Team Edition though,

first line from the description: <br> <BR>2003 CORRECT CRAFT SUPER AIR NAUTIQUE 210 TEAM EDITION WITH GREAT EXTRAS!<br> <BR><br> <BR>sounds like a team to me, to bad i don't have the money for it, its located like 20min from me to...

How could his kids just give up on wakeboarding when they have such a sweet boat like that, he should have whooped them for making him buy the boat and then have them quit.

flux 08-31-2004 10:50 AM

I just didn't see any Team emblems on it anywhere, but that doesn't mean much, it's got the goods anyway and is a sick color scheme. <BR> <BR>His kids should learn to enjoy it since the guy spent their college fund on it!!

The team emblem on that year is right after the 210 on the side, correct me if I'm wrong. All the pictures he took don't show the side of the boat where the team emblem would be located. No biggy the description sounds like the team edition options with a few upgrades. Sweet boat.

I'm no expert on E-Bay but don't you think he has a low price on it to grab attention? The buy it now price is $45K and there is a reserve price. Just a thought. <BR>I'm sure you could negotiate with him, but definately see first hand what you're buying and who you're buying from.

flux 08-31-2004 11:24 AM

I think you are correct Ryan. The emblem is kinda small and none of the shots get that area. It's a sick boat if it is what it is. Like David said, gotta see it first before you give the guy 45k.

My buddy sent an e-mailed with some questions, but nothing yet. <BR> <BR>The only problem is that it's 1400 miles from Central TX. <BR> <BR>Maybe I can talk Joe into taking a look.

i hear there is another boat on ebay that is sweet, that you should buy. david d has even ridden behind it and can vouch for its coolness. the owner also has posession of the title so no hassle getting a title from the bank.

sk8joe01 08-31-2004 8:20 PM

its the second time this guy has this boat up, the first time the buy it now was 50k, it ddn't sell so he relisted lower

wakeguru 09-01-2004 7:53 AM

TIMEH! Say it ain't so! A tan '01 San? <BR> <BR>I can't believe it. This week is getting worse by the minute.

timmy 09-01-2004 8:43 AM

david no, it is a red/black malibu.

wakeguru 09-01-2004 8:58 AM

Okay. I knew you were going to sell, but Chase - my goodness. If that guy was selling his boat I'd think maybe the world is coming to an end (which, for us in central FL, it may seem like it after this weekend!). <BR> <BR>Yes, good boat that Malibu. What's asking price?

timmy 09-01-2004 9:45 AM

reserve is 28k. i'll get a new one when i eventually move up by you and chase and can use it regularly again.
