Just wanted to give a shout out to OIB. I had my 2011 Axis A22 for sale on craigslist and on a few other smaller sites. I did not post it on boattrader because I thought it was too expensive. I had a couple of hits on the boat over the winter time, but no serious offers. I ended up posting my boat on Only Inboards using one of its standard - like twenty something dollar - ads and, BAM, the boat sold in two weeks to a guy up in Michigan. I had to take the time to remove the ad after it sold, because I continued to get tons and tons of messages about the boat.

I was very happy with the ease of creating the ad, the low cost, and, obviously, the results. If you're looking to sell, do yourself a favor and post up on OIB. I wish I would have sooner so I could have ordered my '12 earlier!

Selling boats for a living that site is invaluable. I put a maristar 200 up there last thursday and have probably had a dozen hits on it already. Definitely worth the money!

Thanks for the post Chatt, glad it sold. Now, if I could only convince boattrader it's worth 5 million and that they should buy me out... well then i'd have something

What brand will you be bangin' on for 2012? Is this the year of the Tige or will you be on a Nautique again? Or Axislibu again? Where we headed?

I'm sticking with Axis this year. I loved my A22. All in all, it was the best boat I've ever owned. I had zero problems, I didn't have to take out a huge loan so I had extra money for gas. The wake was always slamming, and I love the LS3 big motor option that is offered for '12. I'm going solid white this year. I really liked the white 230 I had, but, at the time, I had a dodge diesel as my tow vehicle, and I always had exhaust soot down the side of the white hull. Because I have a gasser again, I want to go back to white. By white, I mean white boat, white trailer, white tower, white mirror arm, white z5 frame, etc. etc. etc.

I think I'm going to run the vandall graphics too.

Congrats Chatt. Look forward to seeing the new ride as usual. You guys that get a new boat every year really piss me off.......... Ha ha kidding of course!
I have to agree that it is worth its weight in gold to pay the standard fee and post on Onlyinboards if you are looking to sell. Great place to search as well. I have always had good luck.

Please don't sell to boat trader, they will ruin it. Them, along with all their sites, auto trader, etc., totally suck.

Congratulations Chatt.I also sold my last boat on Only Inboards in 2 weeks.After having it at a dealer on consignment for a month.I got tons of calls and the first guy to come out and look at it bought it.When i called back others in order of calls recieved they had all already bought boats.In other words your getting calls from serious buyers.I only had one guy try and beat me down on price over the phone.So all in all i would use them again.As Chatt said well worth the investment.

Ok Chat, thats a pretty big statement given all the boats you have owned! Please list list all of the boats that you have owned from the earliest one.

Dc, other than a duck boat and a 1989 Kawasaki 650 sx, you nailed it!

Many reasons why I said what I said. It's a combination of quality of wake, lack of problems, cost, ease of installation of stereo upgrades, and core features that I actually use (pnp, big motor option, z5 cruise, wedge, solid tower, etc.).

Also, let me be clear that I'm not saying that an a22 is the best boat out there, it's just the one that's suits ME the best so far. A LOT of it has to do with cost.

A LOT of it has to do with the fact that I'm sponsored with the local dealer and he gave me a huge discount if I would talk about it incessantly on wakeworld and I could make money off it when I sold it.

Congrats on selling your boat. +1 for OIB too. It generated a lot of solid leads and an eventual buyer for the X2 last year.

Chatt and I "troll" each other all the time on here.. It's what we do..

I'm stoked on his sale, his new build and of cours on OIB.. We're just BS'ing as usual.. nothing to see here.. It's not that serious.

I agree. It wouldn't be wakeworld without a little drama/contention to spice things up. All we need is a few gratitutious stripper/Havasu shots to make this thread complete.

Oh, and LON's X80, someone chiming in about MB, two people fighting about whether MC is overpriced, one guy arguing about how nautique is the best, someone mentioning fit and finish, me arguing about bank for the buck, an exile rip off / skylon argument, a discussion about which speakers are the best, someone trying to sell their boat, and, finally, a picture of Robert's blue tige. Then, the cycle will be complete.

You forgot the warranty 'discussion' we just went through, a question about batteries and charging systems and someone saying that the new XStar will be here in a couple weeks.

LOL... this Jeff character is a clown. Maybe a decent cat in real life. Doubtful though.

On this subject, the MAIN thing I noticed about the inquiries I recieved from OIB versus something like C list. Is that an OIB buyer ACTUALLY understood the value of the boat and/or options. You dont know how many "I can buy so and so bayliner that is 5 years newer than your boat for half the price". Ok dude, clearly you arent in the market for a inboard ski/wake boat.

So Chatt inquiring minds would like to know if Only Inboards helped you get back what you paid for your gently used boat.Or is it possible your new boat didn't have the REMARKABLE resale of your old brand.That would be the 3rd of the 4 different wake boat brands you have owned and raved about.HMMMMMMMM!

Robert, you are a douche. In regard to my 2011, A22, I was able to sell it along the same lines as what I sold my prior 230s for. And by that, I mean I was able to recoup my investment and lateral into a '12. In fact, the resale was so good that I was able to order a '12 with the ls3. If the resale value had not been there then I would have kept the boat.

We are all know you love your tige. We also know, from your comments regarding the warrantees of Mastercraft and correct craft, that everybody needs to take what you say with a big sweaty grain of salt.

Also if you read the whole thread Rick Correll explained that Tige DOES have the most complete warrany in the business.I guess if someone proves you wrong there negative,but if your "stoked about your latest ride" anything you say is gospel!

Robert, if you read the whole thread (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=792291), any rational person will realize that you made a comment about MC and CC that is completely incorrect, and without any basis in fact. You are acting childish now, but perhaps the following picture will explain things in a manner in which you understand:

You should see if you can get the Vandall graphics in like a different shade of white so the entire boat would be all white with that breaking it up. Kind of like the "ferrari" MB thread where the decals are black. I think that'd be sweet. But that's just my opinion

I have used onlyinboards for the last 9 boats it is the best site out there. I have tried several other sites but I have never had any luck with them. Funny chatt just found them. If you have a inboard that is where you go to sell it. I will put my 23 LSV on there in about 6 weeks so I can order a 2013.

and as far as robert vs chattwake... chat does talk about his axis a lot, but in relevant threads or when he is asked about it, just like early on in this thread. robert, however, loved to post his blue and white tige (a very sick looking boat by the way) on every thread, regardless of the subject. Glad it stopped. "MB" has replaced "roberts tige", however.

I'm glad Chatt got his boat sold and was able to get a new 2012 . I also learned OI is the place to go if you want to sell an inboard.
PS Thanks Chatt for turning me on to Owen at Boatmate they built me one bada$$ trailer

A picture is worth a thousand words. Make sure you add several pictures in your add.That will greatly increase your chances for a quick sale.When you select your wording for your ad you should consult Mr. Webster as he is the official WW expert.Only Inboards will sell your boat quickly.

Robert is right about how important pictures are. For those prospective sellers out there, I'm sure Robert would be happy to lend you a picture of his blue tige, so that, for no particular reason, you can include it in your ad on OIB.


Shaun, I was aware of OIB before this year but had never used the site. I had posted my boats up on boat trader and Craigslist instead. Now knowing how cheap, easy and effective the site is, OIB is definitely what I'll use in the future to sell my boats. Best of luck selling your vlx. Shoot me a pic. I haven't seen it on the water yet! How cold is the Hiawassee right now btw?
