There's good deals on here, too, and BBC. Smart decision and don't forget to negotiate a little.

All the boats listed on BBC seem to have an added sentimental value from the looks of the prices on there.

Ask him what he wants. He may be perfectly happy with what he has. If he has had that boat this long, he probably will not want another!


I would agree with you , but then we would both be WRONG !!!!!

My old ProCraft is getting ready to go away for a newer Phoenix. Heard great things about customer service

Have you seen how good bass boats are holding their value these days? I bought a Legend Alpha 199 like 7 or 8 years ago. Paid $43K. Had it for almost 6 years then sold its for $39K. Only thing I added was a 2nd power pole. Not sure exactly how they are going today but from what I've heard that is still happening.

I guess I'm just going off of my own perspective. In 2019, I bought a 2018 that listed for $75K new that had 16 hours on it. I paid $52.5K. There's always deals out there if you look hard enough. I do not disagree with the fact that nice, used boats are holding their value at an unbelievable rate. Best I've ever seen, especially since Covid.

wow...someone was either a sucker or just in a pinch and needed to sell that boat and fast. Great find for you. I've always tended to agree with your thought process on this but it's been crazy over the last several years and yes especially this year with VERY limited new boats available to purchase

Always wanted a Ranger but probably not anymore, post Johnny. Saw a new FXR this week and that thing was sexy. Bass Cats seem well made but let’s face it, they are ugly. If I had to chose, I’d probably go with an FXR.

Only way I am buying a new boat tomorrow is if I hit the powerball. So if I do I'm getting a FXR20.



I hate photobucket.

Well, the OP did ask what “I “, “we” would buy, so yes, I am the “beholder”.

It was listed at 75K , listed is the key word, sold for is the key phrase. Yes used boats are at an all time high for resale, not sure this trend will last much longer, sell high then buy low.

Even more so today, like okie said used boats are holding their value at an unbelievable rate
