    Default Good Deal??

    Ok, so now that I am convinced on the Outback V, would like everyone's opinion on the deal I am being offered or if you guys think it would be better to wait for the boat shows in January. I live in Southwest Texas so I can still get another 1-2 months of skiing in! Anyway here is the deal.

    '07 Outback V w/ 325 HP Indmar Engine

    Wakeboard tower with racks/Tower Bimini
    Gravity III Ballist System
    Hydraulic Wakeplate
    Depth Finder
    Boat Cover
    AM/FM/CD Player
    Rear Remote


    $37,265 +TT&L (price includes Freight & Make Ready)

    Also, dealer is offering no payment, no intrest for a year with long term financing (15 yrs) (7.99%) with no prepayment penalty.

    The color is not what I want but I can live with that (it's black, not blue).

    Anyway would love to get everyone's opinion. Thanks.

    Thats a tough one, Price doesn't seem bad, however I don't know that it is THAT much better than waiting for the show incentives.
    Two things that would make me wait.....
    1. its not the color you want
    2. No Perfect Pass???????? My 2004 LSV has PP and I could NOT go without it!

    And the three year boat show warrantee.

    However, a year without payments is a deal I never saw. Then again, you will be upside down forever! Which is fine, if you keep the boat.

    First I'd like to thank everyone for their input. Being a first time boat buyer, I want to make a good, well informed decision. That said, here is the final deal:

    '07 Outback V w/ 325 HP Indmar Engine

    Wakeboard tower with racks/Tower Bimini
    Gravity III Ballist System
    Hydraulic Wakeplate
    Depth Finder
    Boat Cover
    AM/FM/CD Player
    Rear Remote
    Perfect Pass


    $37,000 +TT&L (price includes Freight & Make Ready)

    Also, dealer is offering $0 down, no payment, no intrest for a year with long term financing (15 yrs) (7.99%) with no prepayment penalty. I seriously don't think I will take more than about 6 years to pay it off, but I like the option of being able to choose!

    The financing is their way of beating the boat show deals coming up. Dealer also said they would order the color I wanted with the features and I could still have the same deal. Drawback is I have to wait a little while longer for the boat! I think it is a good deal but I'd like more feedback before I sign the dotted line!!

    Since the current base prices are not on the configurator yet - it is hard to determine what is a good deal and waht is a graet deal. Obviously the dealer had some room to negotiate if he threw in a $1100 perfect pass and still knocked $265 off. Last years V with all you said looks to be about $37900 - if you add the normal $1200-$2000 bump per year price change, then that is the deal you are getting.

    As far as the boat - you will be much happier with the V as a fist time owner! If it not on the list - look at putting the pop-up cleats on the boat. Worth it when you need to tie up.

    I think we should rename them to "retractable multi-purpose do-hickeys".

    Did you know that a "retractable multi-purpose do-hickeys" can be used to open a bottle of Corona?
    Ed, the bottom of my "reef" sandels will open a corona also.
