We are in Lake of the Ozark, MO for the week so the kids can spend the week with my ex-wife and their grandma. So the wifey(new) and me are on our own at a hotel with nothing but time so since we have been boat shopping we decided to hit the dealers here. We have went from a $20,000 then to $30,000 and it seems to be moving up. Say a couple boats yesterday I don't know well so curious if anyone has any knowledge.

First off let me say the Mastercraft Dealer here was a complete D-bag. The sales guy turned his nose up at us as soon as we drove up in our VW van. If you don't have $100K to drop they didn't want to talk. His barebones cheapest boat as he put it was a new Epic for $60K. He told me how Moomba's were cheap junk and Supra's we just overpriced blinged Moomba's. A true boat snob. My wife who is a nurse and the nicest person you could meet looked at me and said lets go. Then in the car told me I would never buy a boat there.

Boat we found that we really liked was a new Tige R20. Pretty bear bones but we aren't looking for anything fancy. We liked the boat and the size. We don't need huge and it had a ton of space for a 20 footer. I haven't looked at new Tige and seems they have come a long way!! The offer they made was $48K. Looking online it appeared to be a good price. Had only a few options. Dual batteries, snap in carpet, cover, 1 set of racks, spare tire, 900 ballast, basic stereo, Dealer offered right away to take us out and ride it.

Other boat was a 2010 Malibu VLX with every factory option and 18 hours. $49.999. Beautiful boat. Draw back was it was consigned(we are trading) and it had no trailer. But again the price looks good.

Inputs? I know the pedigree of the VLX. Just don't know much about the Tige R20, anyone have one?
