Re: New Catalina Pricing

S

everything is negotiable, the question is at what cost to you the consumer. SOunds like your local dealer has been selling with no profit to his operation...thus the can't do anything without screwing things up relationship.

Similarly in my area, a great dealer in Deltaville went belly up after only three years....again not enough profit in it for him to do correct warranty/service work.

That being said, there is likely single digit (0-9%) margins to the dealer on a $100K boat..if he runs a decent shop.

YMMV
