That price is closer to the price that I heard and expected. Too many times people are trying to increase what is reality or they are REALLY getting the "grease" from the dealer. I always wondered what people were talking about when they say this boats $150k or so. It all depends on freight, taxes and commissioning. And these are all too variable to do comparison shopping of boats. (Some states have no taxes....some areas have low freight/shipping).

So when people say another boat is a better deal...the question still remains...Did you include that tax on that used boat at $150k...well if you did...all of a sudden it close to $162k in Calif...right !?...things need to be kept in perspective....and I would tend to think you could negotiate the commisioning fees....if not you are getting ripped off and I would look to another dealer. There is no law that says you can''t......

ok with all that said....buying a 1 or 2 year old boat used is always a better deal...;-)
