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.( photoDisplayType=2#ebayphotohosting ) He is thinking about making a move.

I just wanted to get some opinions and tips.

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.

Buyer Beware.

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

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.

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.

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.
I'm sure you could negotiate with him, but definately see first hand what you're buying and who you're buying from.

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.

The only problem is that it's 1400 miles from Central TX.

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.

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!).

Yes, good boat that Malibu. What's asking price?
