I have been pricing boats the last couple months and was wondering why these dealers don’t negotiate the price of the boat. They don’t budge an inch on price it’s a take it or leave it deal.The price of boats has gone out the roof why do people pay these prices for a boat? Just venting LOL!

Right now it’s a seller’s market for sure. No need to budge

Dealers are not negotiating prices because they don’t need too. Demand is high and money is still cheap.

Almost every dealer around me is sold out of almost every boat they can get their hands on! woot

With all that why would they negotiate much if any at all? hmmm

Most are sold out and can’t get the 2021 models in because the plants have been closed for Covid-19 and are now trying to catch up that’s why they are sold out. I have talked to plenty of dealers and all say the same thing waiting on new stock.

The only thing crazier than a new one is a good used one right now. Absolutely ridiculous.

Prices are totally insane lately. But that’s what guys will pay...until finances get tight. Then you’ll see a massive dump of newish boats on the “for sale” boards. Already a couple of boats just a few months old starting to show up. The bubble will burst.

It’s a weird situation. Spending is up while employment is down. This isn’t going to go well for a lot of people who insist on living beyond their means. Some of us still remember all too well the 2008-2009 bust and economically, were in a lot worse shape than we were back then.

People are going stir crazy at home and they are looking for anything possible to do outdoors and keep up their “social distancing” thing. Boating is just that perfect opportunity!! “We will worry about what it costs at a later time” mentality.

Boat prices will never drop, we’ve been through enough economic downfalls over the last couple decades and they never dropped, they just keep going up.

When 20’ boats started reaching 50K plus I was out. Can’t get over the price of a 20’ boat now at 80-90K that’s just a little ridiculous for a bass boat! Wish the outdoor guys would wake up and stop paying these ridiculous prices. I know I’m just venting, but damn guys wake up the boat dealerships are laughing at you LOL!
