We're considering the new 360 Express or 390 Coupe. Anyone have suggestion on what % off msrp we should shoot for? I just want to make sure we know what's "normal".

I doubt we'll ever get any follow up on this one!

Yes, dealers need to sell off inventory but if you are trading a boat that's just another unit in the inventory. While the value of the used boat will have a lesser impact on their cost of inventory its still a cost. I agree with Tang. Don't try to "surprise" them with a trade. They ain't dumb. Get educated first by figuring what the real wholesale value of your trade is and use that in your figures. The dealer will show you a big number for your trade but that number will include the discount off the MSRP for the new boat. Figure out what bottom line you want (New boat $$ minus trade $$) and shoot for that.

Getting a deal is important, but if you buy a new boat you will still take a depreciation bath.

Do a yachtworld search, I found a 08 brand new listing for 260K, Bank ordered sale.
I can imagine what kind of deal you could get.

98.6 percent

Having just gone through this, keep in mind....dealers are hurting.
If it is a leftover or repo, then you will get the deal of a lifetime.
Work one against the other.
Rememeber, there are not alot of buyers, so you are in the driving seat and you should take advantage.
Dealers will turn to the manufacturer for additional concessions to get rid of 2007 and 2008 boats so the manufacturer can push 2009 boats on them. Take advantage. My new boat is easily 40% off MSRP!

On the other hand, The dealer may need to unload inventory for the sake of generating cash flow. It is a buyers market, I'd offer 40% off of list. Let them have your trade for wholesale, it would take a very long time and money in this market to sell it on your own.

I'll guarantee you that you won't get anywhere near what YOU think is enough for your trade after you get the no-trade price. Just like trading a car....they'll want to own it for wholesale (cause THAT's the way it's done) and you'll want somewhere near Retail and the figures just won't add up. Just remember that there WILL be a difference in the Tax you'll pay and although it doesn't seem like alot at the math and it might be more than you think. THEN there's the costs related to selling yours yourself...advertising...not selling it right away cause nobody's buying to the tire kickers and the people that wanna go all through your boat and then tell you they're thinking about maybe getting one in a year or two.....then the re-detailing after all the tire kickers paw through it.....then the advertising costs...then storage again cause people still aren't buying boats.....
The list goes on and on and you'll be nutso before it's over.

we have a 2008 390 in stock at $399,000. Not sure how much off of list that is, but llist is well into the 400,000 range. (This is not an advertisement for sale...just putting it here for knowledge)
Gregory S Posted - Jun 03 2008 : 19:33:45
Without a trade, I expect around 25%.

I do have a boat to trade. I was planning on neg a cash price for the new boat.. then see what they offer for my current Reagal 3560. If it's not enough I'll sell the 3560 on my own. There aren't a ton of them out there and they seem to sell well.
