Cool Boat Shoe Discounts

What is in your mind an appropriate discount for a new sail boat that was shown on a boat show? I'm looking at a 40 footer and like to get some feedback.
Thanks much

A 40' footer is a big foot and would obviously require a big custom shoe. Doubtful it would be discounted much.

Usually you can work something in the 20% off MSRP or 10% off boat show prices. Great way to get a new boat at a low price but be careful, people put gum and other crap in all sorts of places.

Depends on the boat manufacture, but the average price discount now is 10-15% off most boat prices according to my broker. What boat are you looking to buy?
