A PSC? Likely no discount...they pretty much get their price, the yard/dealer may offer some "discounts" on equipment or electronics...

A production boat sitting on the dealer lot, 10-15% if you are good at negotiating and are willing to walk, if need be. You do need to be careful if playing a dealer against another, as they do talk and some builders have dealers with a "territory" and they are not allowed to sell outside their areas...

Rather than a discount, you may be better getting the selling dealer to allow you to have a binding survey done with YOUR surveyor on the new boat, with a written commitment to complete the identified items within a certain period or lose the held back last payment of 10-15%...

YMMV
