When looking at new boats, are prices negotiable like cars and trucks or are they usually pretty firm on the price?

Most seem to be negotiable, but at times you be scratching your head. Might depend on what your looking at as well.

there is not as much profit margins on boats as autos when was the last time you saw 15k off an 0 interest.

I would say it depends on who you are dealing with.
I deal with Billy Sartin at Sartin Marine and he will give you his best price right from the start.
Billy is the owner and handles all of the sales himself so not having to pay a sales force saves you $.
You will want to go with a brand and dealer that has a good reputation of providing a good product and service after the sale.
Go see Billy when your ready to buy, you wont be sorry you did.

Depends what boats ur looking at. Main thing is to be informed before buying a new boat. Its boat show time, get out and look and leave a few fingerprints.

This for sure after owning a few new ones in my lifetime.......A boat that is the current year model and fairly new in a dealer's inventory not so much unless the MFG is offering discounts. A new old stock boat can be a whole different ball game especially if the dealer has had it a couple of years. Also tournament won boats are usually a really good bargain, most are sold because the feds hit the new owners with a pretty stiff gift tax in order to keep it. On these deals some one proposed on here to go get financing arranged first or cash in hand and show up @ the weigh ins @ tournaments that are awarding boats or new boat certificates and make your deal right there on the spot. I think this is probably by far the best way to get a new rig.........

I'd get online once you know what you are exactly wanting. You'd be surprised how much money you can save buy shopping this way. It's cheaper than spending money on fuel.

I'm from Indiana and drove to Pennsylvania and saved over 5k on the same boat.

Everthing is negotiable. Some business are more willing than others. Shop around.

Some good deals now at the Houston Boat show. I bought one Friday and felt like I got a pretty good deal as well.

I would also like to clarify what the IRS does when you win a boat. The tournament director sends you a 1099 form showing the value of the rig and reports that amount to the IRS as earned income for that calendar year. You then have to pay income tax on that new total amount of income. Same if you win an automobile.

An example would be, if you make $80K a year at your normal job and you win a boat that has a value of $50K based on the 1099 form from the tournament director, you now have to pay income tax on $130K which will most likely be a higher tax bracket than you were before.

No matter if you sell the boat or not, you will still have to pay the income tax on the higher amount. Uncle Sam will get his part irregardless of what you do with the boat.

If you want to get another boat in the future make sure you buy one that you can sell when your done with it and not have to give it away.

I've visited a few dealers over the last few years. Had cash, ready to buy, made it clear I wasn't a tire kicker and don't think I ever got them to more than 7% off and that isn't enough so I bought used. At only 7% off MSRP you WILL take a large [censored] whoopin when you sell.
