Has anyone seen the new colors they have come out with this year? For me personally I like the "sunshine" (yellow) and the "digital" (silver/black). I am thinking of purchasing one and wanted to see what others thought. I know sometimes resale needs to be kept in mind but I don't plan on ever selling.

I see your point, and know you don't PLAN on selling, but please do not get yellow. Look at the boats for sale section. Boats with yellow do not sell or take longer to sell and you lose more money. The silver/black combo won't have issues selling. Odd colors: yellow, purple, teal etc. just are hard to unload. It's just a fact. JMHO

You dont plan on ever selling? - or - You dont ever plan on selling?

Because one of those is more likely then the other. I personally always plan on selling, even if I dont think I will want to sell it. That is just my opinion. And I like the yellow highlights as well, but would go with the gray (actually I would go with white but that wasn't an option).

You'll get tired of, and regret the yellow, especially long term. We bought a yellow boat, we'll mostly yellow accents. Glad it's my wife's boat. She wants to change it somehow some way one day. 2cents

At least don't do that color yellow....dull and ugly. Maybe a bright yellow but PP's needs to be black. The other color is set up perfect! I'd just like to ride in one, someday....

I like the yellow, but I'm young. Maybe it's an age thing.

I meant that I plan on keeping this boat for a very long time. I am not one to trade in or sell and get the newest, or latest and greatest every couple of years. Granted things happen in life and if I ever had to sell it I would, but I don't plan ever selling this boat unless I absolutely have to.

I can understand everyone's point on the yellow. But from what I am told by multiple dealers is, the yellow is actually one of the better sellers and has outsold the gray.

Yellow is a good one if you wanna be noticed.....perstaff jerseys do that, too.

Lemons....

Many of the colors from the '80s are coming back (modernized of course). However, auto dealers learned the hard way about yellow...

Love that they finally neutralized the color schemes for the LE. Digital is great!

I actually like options C (blue) & D (black and red). I've always said every Skeeter I'll ever own will have red in it. Don't do the yellow.

Had a Yellow and black Bullet 20XD... It took me leass the 8hrs to sell it once it hit the for sale ads.... Yellow hull and cap, pin striped in black... Man it was a pretty boat... Get what makes you happy. Nothing like sitting in a boat you like as opposed to one everyone else likes... Dan

Of course.....if I had a yellow boat, I would say anything to sell it as well.
