    Default Buying a Moomba

    Hi, I am new to this forum and new to Moomba boats. This afternoon I am picking up a used (55 hours) 2007 Moomba Outback. We have agreed upon a price of $26500 for the boat. I know the MSRP is not that much more for a brand new boat but I can't even come close to this price on a new outback. The dealers are talking high 30's for price. I just can't seem to find a better deal on a Moomba. Am I paying too much or does this sound about right?

    Is it from a dealer or private sale? Low hours , has it been winterized properly?

    welcome to the family! you'll find a lot of helpful info for any aspect of your boat and a lot of guys can help ya do dang near anything on this forum just ask.

    i think thats a pretty fair price for both people yeah it is a 2007 but it'd be hard to find a boat with that low of hours. did the seller take you out on it before ya bought it to make sure everything runs fine?

    congrats on the boat purchase!

    That sounds like a good price to me, but it also probably depends on the options.

    Does it have:
    -Tower
    -Appearance Package (Stainless Steel Rub Rail, Cleats, Docking Lights)
    -Ballast

    ?

    dealer winterized or owner. If owner I would ask how he did it, make sure nothing is cracked

    Yep, Dealer winterized and seller has all the service records.

    It has the wake plate and tower but I don't think it has a ballast system.

    Also seller has upgraded the stereo with tower speakers as well.

    has the chrome package.

    It sounds like I'm not really over paying from the feedback so far. I just thought I better check before I finalize everything tonight.

    I'm in Minnesota so I am going to have a very difficult time waiting for spring with this thing in my garage!

    I know how that goes! We ordered our Outback in Late February/Early March of '08 and had to wait until the last week of May to take delivery, it was the longest few months of my life!
