Should I order before the boat shows or during one?
I am been warned to stay away from my local dealer by many people because of awful service and the second closest dealer for Axis is in Dallas, TX which is about 3 hours away. Should i order from that dealer, or order one from a rep at the Dallas boat show?
I am pretty clueless about his whole process.
TONs of wiggle room on price. It will differ from season to season, brand to brand, an even model to model based on what he dealer thinks they can get away with. Ive heard anywhere fom 10% off MSRP for highly demanded boats to upwards 25-30%.
You can shave cost off the boat if you don't put on a ton of options that you can do yourself with aftermarket stuff. Lights and stereo equipment come to mind - maybe also covers and biiminis.
I'd love to hear what others' experiences on discount off MSRP is.
