I am thinking about making an offer on a 2004 210 SANTE. The seller says the boat has less than 200 hrs on it and that he purchased it new in early 2005. I think his asking price of $45,000 (w/o trailer) is high. (Hopefully, he is not on this board). I am not necessarily trying to low ball him but I was thinking about making him an offer of $39,000.
My rational is as follows: (1) the season is basically over for this year (2) I would have to buy a trailer (probably a tandem for $3,000-4,000) and (3)I can buy a leftover loaded 2005 Malibu VLX for $48,000.
Here is some info on the 2004 SANTE
PCM 350 Excalibur 330 hp
Kicker stereo system
air/water temp gauge
and more (???)
PCM and Correct Craft transferrable warranties
First, what are your comments on this boat and in your opinion is my offer fair?
Second, those of you that own this boat what parts or components have given your problems or things on this boat that I should look more closely at?
Third, I am assuming that he couldn't have paid much more than $45,000 for this boat new in 2005. Does this sound correct?
Thanks for your time and opinions.
