    Default Buying 2005 Mobius LS!

    I am looking into buying a 2005 Mobius LS that has a lot of the options I was looking for. Comes with the stock ballast, tower, 2 racks, 2 speakers and looks to be kept in pretty good condition. NADA has it at $23,500 and the guy has it listed at $24,900. I was wondering what kind of price seems fair in todays market?

    Thanks for the help,

    Eric

    Look at hours and condition. Does he have service records? Almost every boat I've ever seen from Wisconsin or Minnesota has been extremely nice after 8 years. Short season and proper winterization and storage make for a nice boat for a long time.

    There are 151 hours, I'm going to check it out later this week in person but I wanted to have a solid pricepoint in my head before seeing it. m.jpg

    Default Buying 2005 Mobius LS!

    I've been looking for a while now, seems like everything sells slightly above nada average worth unless you catch a break. If the boat is in nice condition(above normal), the seller knows what he has and that someone will pay a little extra. I'm not by any means trying to persuade you, but I missed out on a lot of nice boats over the last 6 months because I'm always trying to get the best deal possible. Of course get the best price you can, but if its good shape and you like it, I would say don't be afraid to go a little over nada. I would make an offer at the low nada value, but be willing to work with the seller to keep it fair. What's a grand over 3-5 years of ownership.

    You got that right. A thousand over three years (not including interest) is $27 per month. Worth it to get the right one.

    Hope you don't mind, I thought I would share the ad for the bigger pictures.

    I don't think the price is out of line. His ad states OBO, so there might be some room in that as well.

    I sold my 05 LS back in 2011 for 23,500. I paid 23,800 for it the same year and the NADA was 26,600. Not sure if that helps just thought I'd throw it out there.

    Was getting ready to post a similar question. Everybody keeps telling me to wait until the season is over. I am in the Atlanta area. Generally speaking will I get a better deal if I wait a couple more months.

    Thanks for the input

    It's possible but some good ones may be gone too. Plus you will have missed out an a few months of good boating. There are always deals for those who look hard for them. What boat are you looking for?
