New member to forum...looking to purchase my first ever boat and am interested in purchasing a new Centurion 2013 Elite V C4. See boat details at http://alberta.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehi...AdIdZ505036097
I live in Calgary, AB, Canada which - if you believe it - is a hotbed for boats so I'm sure prices are a little more expensive here than the rest of Canada (due to demand) and definitely higher than the US. I've never owned or purchased a boat so I'm not sure how to go about determining my initial offer to the dealer. I have purchased a number of vehicles in the past and always felt like I negotiated a good deal - but I always had dealer invoice prices available to assist me.
Anyways...I'm looking for some advice on what would be a good starting offer and final price that I should feel comfortable settling on as a purchase price for this boat. Here are the details and MSRP quoted on the spec sheet from the dealer. They are asking $55,000 + 5% sales tax. MSRP price is below.
What does everyone think?
Also - how does this boat compare as an entry-level multi-sport family boat that will mostly tube, cruise and wake-surf (all beginners) - especially with stock ballast?
