Bee looking at new bass boats .. They sure are high can’t imagine financing a boat for 20 years at 9 percent how many people with all these new boats are upside down in them..looks better to buy used I guess...

Do this. Use $75,000 as a base price for a new bass boat ( that's actually on the low side ) financed at 9% ( that's low too ) for 20 years and see what that boat actually cost. HOLY MOLY KINGFISH. If you win the lottery go for it otherwise the smart deal is a used and there's lots of them to choose from.

I just don’t get it 75000 is a lot of money financed at 20 years even if you double up your payments...If you pay it off in 10 years that boat is still worth say 25000 to 30000 that’s a lot of wasted money...

OK, so the new mid engine Corvette was just introduced. The car is nicely equipped with electronics controlling adn showing almost everything, electronics on a bass boat controls and shows a few things, fiberglass body on the Vette, fiberglass bass boat; BIG horsepower technologically advanced V8 engine in the Vette, smaller horse power V8 or V6 hanging off the back end of the bass boat; and the base price of the Vette will be $59,995.00 while the base price of a modestly equipped 20-21 foot fiberglass bass boat, $75,000. Is there really $15,000 more value in a bass boat than a new Corvette? I

And at least with the vehicle you use it to go work and make money..I doubt most of us are going to make any money with a boat

In case you haven't taken the time to calculate here's the answer :


Monthly Payment $674.79
Total Interest Paid $86,950.67
Total Paid $161,950.67
Still wanna buy a new bass boat? And Jim Sr. I might be wrong but I doubt very few TFF'ers have $75,000 + tax, title and license to pay cash.

Only a person with less sense than the average Joe would buy new and do the financing that you've mentioned....


Too blessed to be stressed!!

WOW

I still have my 2004 BassCat Cougar that I paid $29,000 cash for back in 2005. I thought that was a lot for a boat back then. Prices have gone through the roof for boats, electronics, and trolling motors.

Says the guy financing the house for 15-30 years paying at the very least 80k in interest on said house. But let’s put guys on blast for paying interest on what is essentially a boat rental for a few years. Makes sense.


If you can't find em wind em.

That is a dumb comparison, house is a need, a boat is not. Houses usually appreciate. I had e bought 4 homes in my life, sold 3 of them.

House #1: paid 175,000 sold for 300,000
House #2: paid 75,000 sold for 100,000
House #3: paid 95,000 sold for 130,000

Boat #1: paid 10,000 for put about 6,000 in it on upgrades, sold for 12,000-loss
Boat #2: paid 10,000 for and put around 7,000 in upgrades. Will lose money on it.


Biggest problem with new boat prices is it has increased price of used boats.

Anyone comparing buying a bass boat to buying a home probably bought a new bass boat and is trying to make an excuse for it. Forest Gump had it right.

Every time I look at new boat prices it makes my 2003 Champion 188 CDX look so much better. Bought it used for $15,000 many years ago and will fish out of it till I can no longer fish or it won't float.
