    Default What price can I put on this aluminum boat?

    I am interested in buying an aluminum boat to use on rivers, lakes and very occasionally on the ocean for salmon and trout fishing. I have been contacted by a dealer and he wanted me to make an offer on his boat, which is a Hewes 200 Pro V. They have a boat package “with the F150 XA Yamaha four-stroke, Hard Top configuration#1, 48 gallon fuel tank, bow and stern rails, Yamaha pre-rig, down rigger brackets, ½ black striping , canvas, l-back medium duty suspension seats, 21 “ side jump seats, wash-down pump and more.”
    What kind of offer do you think is a very good deal for me and yet reasonable for the dealer?
    Thanks

    The 'dealer' wants an offer eh? Tell em $2,250.01

    Purty strange he didn't tell you his asking price IMO.
    I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

    rough guess - but probably 30-35K with the hard top and the yammie 150 more if it has the extended transom. Is this a 2014/15 boat or? You can get a good idea by looking on-line and calling some of the other dealers in the L48.

    I believe this is a '14.

    Yeah weird; they can't keep Hewescrafts on the shelves; if it's not an extended transom that may be why no one is snatching it up.

    They have a number of these new boats, they all have the ET, at least at this stealership.

    Negotiating 101 - He who gives the price first loses. For example:

    Example #1

    Dealer: Make me an offer
    You: $35K
    Dealer: I was thinking closer to $40K
    You: Lets meet in the middle at $3750

    Example #2

    Dealer: Make me an offer
    You: What's you're best price
    Dealer: I was hoping to get somewhere near $40K
    You: Somewhere near? What exactly is somewhere near?
    Dealer: $3800
    You: I'll can go $3500
    Dealer: How about $3650
    You: How about $3600
    Dealer: Deal.

    The point is that you make the dealer go first. Force the dealer to give you a solid number and then you're negotiating from that number. If you give the number first then you're negotiating from your number up to his. It's a subtle difference but you'll end up closer to you're number if you make the dealer set a number first.

    Give him a low ball price and walk away if he doesn't take it... Wait a few days and see if he calls back. It's winter and he is sitting on last year's model and it's time to order next year's boat. You have the upper hand.
