I bid on one and got a call back last week. Someone by the name of Frank called me and said that key bank had nothing to with this deal and that whoever did (which he never did say) should have some numbers this week and wanted me to call back, so I told him I have cash and when you get some numbers call me. He never did talk about my offer, so I told him if I do call back it will be in a few months after they all have been sitting for awhile. He also said that they would only take cash for the boats with no power as these were the ones I was bidding on anyway. He also seemed to be pushing his "we can get the engine and drives done by our people".I bid on two..... not even any replies....
Im getting to think is BS.
At the LA show this year - I am pretty sure that I was told a Merc 525 and XR drive COST is $33K to the mfg's door. So, $45K even installed seems high to me. I don't think that the $33K I was quoted included the 'special' Merc Discount that were (maybe still are) being offered.i hear the owner of long beach is in havasu all this week they offered a 525 with an xr drive for 45k is that reasonable? just curious

I was dealing with a sales guy from magic before all this went down and he told me that I could buy a 09 with a 496 ho for 80k out the door and with the 525 I was looking at 100k out the doorI think they were 29,500 up till last month...
I think the magics with the 525 retail about 140k... if I get one i'm gonna put my own 525
and save the 15k
Yes, we are referring to Dealer Cost. Not to spill the beans about the boat Mfg engine 'upgrade' prices - but here goes: The HO is about $20K with the drive on the door to the boat Mfg. So...the real upgrade price is .... well, the math is simpleI am pretty sure the 525 xr package is like a 24ish thousand dollar upgrade from the HO, so 33K is probably the dealers cost. (maybe?)
