I have posted a thread that they are combing SXP and G series into a new L and LX series a few weeks ago. You can already see some of the changes on the builder when building a G modelI talked to my dealer today and they are expecting roughly a 5% price increase here in October. So if you are looking at building you have some time to put your order in. I also heard that the Sxp and G series will be combined, not sure what that means on pricing if you are looking at those models but I can’t imagine the price will be going down!
I think it's more like future buyers will be getting an SXP for G prices, since it seems Benny is wanting to increase the spread between the "lowly" S/SX models and the "more refined mid-range" G models.You mean I could have gotten a G for SXP prices? Awww shoot!!
put me down for a kayak with a 300 hp outboard. Can it pull a skier? lol........what can possibly go wrong?My Dealer handles Bennington's Cobalt's and Malibu boats.Normally about 50 boats in inventory. All makes and models are flying out the door.They were going to do an open house, drive and ride and only had 5 boats so they cancelled. Even kayak's that sat around for 3 years are. So probably no deals! By the way Malibu Boats sell for like $80 to $130 thousand.
Good advice, Walter. All of it.You should be able to respectfully negotiate 20% (or close to it) off any Bennington’s with your local dealer, New order or in-stock boats. Someone already mentioned sticking with your local dealer vs going elsewhere for a ‘better’ deal. Best to heed his/her advice. Remember not every boat is the same, all dealers order stock boats from their own builds according to their location, water access, lake vs salt, demographics etc. You may think you’re saving $5000 by going 40 miles down the road, but you just bought the ‘same’ boat with no Power assist and No Garmin Nav system. The same way you screen dealers on price, Bennington screens dealers on integrity, so best to support your local guy imo. Good luck
My local dealer that I bought our first used 2013 22 SLX F115 express tube Benny from (in 2017), had another used boat I saw in February 2020 (a 2017 22 SSRCX F150, SPS, electrically assisted steering, floor storage, seagrass,etc ) with way more options and power, and only 29.5 hours on it. (more of a forever boat) He was willing to come down another $2000 from his offer of $27k difference so we could get it. Stay with a good dealer and keep pushing for a better deal and suck up to them "how you want to buy from them, but the money has to be right". ("What a great dealership you guys run. I tell all my friends".....BS them if you have to.....lol.... If you don't push back, they will get as much as they can.....think of it as a game of strategy!!! Our dealer even gave us a brand new moveable cupholder as boat only had one. lol Make the wife "the bad guy" and say you really want boat but wife says only at XXXXX price.....throw her under the bus hahaGood advice, Walter. All of it.
