New Prostar price. not for the weak.

My dealer just got his pricing. I bought new prostar from him in '09, so he knows I'm legitimate customer. For a new Prostar with a 6.2L, trailer, bimini, carpet, ski racks. $77,400 plus taxes. (I warned you).

    Is that retail or out the door after some negotiations?

    If that's what he's quoting you for a sell price, then he's selling it to you at close to msrp with a quite healthy margin.

    He said MSRP was in the 90's. I bought a PS214 with tower and 6.0L for just over 56k in '09.

    Get me my Nitro...My heart just stop!
    Was it with optionnal bow seating and how much more for the 6.2...
  • Of course, a 6.2 is about a $9k upgrade.

    @ShaneH, that gets lost in the rounding...

    Shane, I am also "Joe blow nobody". I'm sure he is making money on me. But, still, that is what he quoted me.
  • wrecknprogresswrecknprogress Posts: 19 Baller
    I was told 8k for the 6.2
  • What you'll find is that dealers price things all over the map. Some price with a 15-18% margin. Some price at 25% margins. Some price at full msrp. The difference between a dealer pricing at 18% and a dealer pricing at 25% starts to get big.

    I think @Razor just pulled his 2005 197 off the market.

    How hard will this be for clubs to replace boats. According to @wacknprogress in the last 3 years the price has climbed almost 20+K?

    @MS -- with a 20 year loan and (hopefully) a little better luck with negotiations I think I can do it! I wouldn't do the big engine anyway. I believe the two they have built right now are both 5.7s.

    Ouch. That seems really high. I was under the impression it was going to be in the mid to high 50s. Even with 9K for the 6.2 L, that still puts the price at 68K. That's 10K more than I expected.
  • The_MSThe_MS Posts: 5,254 Mega Baller
    @Razor I think it will come in better then 70K.

    Did I mention we can do re-powers and ZO for around that $10K mark?

    Those Gekko boats just started looking better and better.

    The 6.2 isn't really necessary unless you're a serious jumper or live at high altitude. And if the CC200 is anything to go by, the smaller motor will have even a better slalom wake.

    $70K sans the 6.2. That makes me feel a lot better. Maybe I'll buy two.

    The current two new prostars are both 6.2 engines and as I understand it the 6.2 is 200 pounds lighter than the 5.7 so should have a better low speed wake. I want a new prostar but that is a lot of money and doesn't even include all the options I'd get!
  • WaternutWaternut Posts: 1,511 Crazy Baller
    @OB The one time I skied up there about this time last year, I loved that boat. Don't you have it for sale on SIA though?

    Honestly, I wouldn't assume the price is what was posted above based on one dealership. There is a vast difference. A nicely optioned '13 197 5.7 has an MSRP in the 80s, yet I know a dealership that will sell you that boat with trailer for less than $60k. And that's not even at a promo price.

    Whether u like it or not tourney skiing will c a sharp decline if these boats keep pricing increasing unless folks can ski well behind them while practicing behind older boats.

    I'd get the 5.7 liter. All I'll ever need, better fuel consumption, and the most common engine on the planet. If I were looking to buy and as an ex MC promo owner. I'd be getting list of promo folks and trying to make a pre-order sale. Get them to order how you want it and work out a deal to buy it at the end of the season or find one that has ordered one with the options you want. The longer your in the program the better deal you get so find someone thats been in for years.

    Having a boat pre sold was a huge stress off my back and I was definitely willing to deal if someone would do this. I would ask for a non refundable to deposit.
