Been around boats for a long time, even worked in the industry for a short time. Iím looking at purchasing my first brand new boat. Just looking for input as far as what would be considered a fair deal on a new a24. Quoted 86k at the boat show and, that is with PW2 and most other common options.

Impossible to say without knowing the options since the boat could be MSRP $70k or $100k depending on options. Trailer options can also change pricing.
What is the total MSRP of the boat/trailer package? About 20% off on new purchase is probably about right but also depend on the area and the dealer since some do enough volume to offer larger discounts.

Good to see even the "budget" brand boats are creeping up on $100K now...

As long as you all keep buying them the prices will continue.

I’m planning to order mine so I didn’t look at the build sheet for the show boat. Msrp via also put me around 86k. I’m more looking to see percentage wise what is reasonable to ask for. I assume there is always room to negotiate.

They used to say 15-20% off the "premium" brands and 10-15% off the "budget" brands was a good deal. Manufacturers claimed they didn't have as much mark up in the budget brands(Moomba, Axis, Supreme, etc.). Not sure if I ever really believed that, as they were cheaper because of the inputed materials and options and not because they made them cheaper by lowering their margins.

Also keep in mind dealers won't deal nearly as much on a ordered custom boats and a floor boat. There is no incentive for them to. I wouldn't expect better than 10% off MSRP on a custom ordered Axis.
