edited May 2016 in Stuff For Sale
Boat purchased in 08 So anyone that's been around this sight long enough knows the legacy and performance of the 196 so I'll just stick to the facts. Since my buddy does not surf this sight I'm helping him out. Reason for sale: he found real surfing and that has become his passion. I have put many many hours both behind the wheel and at the end of the line with this boat. Performance is stellar. I've driven it for slalom, jump and trick and its better then most. Very dialed in. As for its care, it has lived on a crystal clear, and I mean crystal clear deep water private slalom lake all its life. It's been on a lift, in a boat house under a full waterline cover when not in use. Wiped down inside and out after each set with EagleOne Wax&Dry. Oil changed on schedule as well as all the other general maintenance needs. Like new condition would be an understatement. It has PP with slalom and jump switch. It is multi line display so easy upgrade to ZBox and is compatible with ZO conversion. Back seat never used and has been stored indoors. Asking 30k.

    Where do you get the ballast sacks from?

    If I had an extra 30k that boat would be mine. Absolutely beautiful

    If that boat is worth 30K, what is a 500 hour '08 196 with ZO worth now days. Again excellent condition. I was under the impression that the days of '08 with ZO going for 30k or above were over.

    @jetpilotg4

    The ballast sacks can be purchased for 15k each but he will throw in the boat and trailer for free.

    @LeonL ya.. Maybe but that trailer is brand new. Anyone that needs to trailer a boat will have 0 worry and 0 wondering if a 10 yr old trailer is truly sound.

    That price seems high.Ck out a 2009 with only 395 hrs on ski it again for 28,900.Also a 2006 for 24,000 with low hours......However that boat looks really nice.

    I think its kinda rough on a guy when he posts a classified and non-potential-buyers start critiquing the price and posting "comps."

    @Wish, GLW sale, that's a nice looking boat.

    Agree with Jack. Having just purchased a 2006 206 OB, I'd like to think your ask is in the ballpark. Spring is coming and demand will exceed supply. Boat looks fabulous, GLWS.

    I'll bet most know that this is simply a starting/asking price. So let's go with $29,750 on this one. There, I've nagotiated for a potential buyer already. PM me. :)

    Just for the record, my post wasn't intended to be critical of the price. I'm just surprised and pleased since I own a '08 and that the prices are holding that well.

    It's crazy how boats hold their value! I just sold my old boat in less than 24 hours for $500 less than I bought it for 9 years ago

    Nice ride & dock setup - location? Does it come with the boat house?

    One thing to factor into price is what options it has. Looks like an SE based on seeing what I believe is traditional key start as opposed to the keypad.

    Also - with the insane prices for new 200's that's gotta help keep the prices for 196's up. Locale can make difference as well - one of the lakes I ski on has a tunnel you have to navigate through that a 200 won't fit through, but my 196 does barely.

    They do hold their value well, partly because skiers mostly take good care of them and new boat prices going up a couple grand a year, or more.
