I couldn't agree more.I'm sorry but 25% to 30% off was great when an S class was in the 40s, a G class in the 50s and an R class was high 60s or low 70s. It hasn't been that long ago, folks. It's not only Bennington that is on the greed train, they all are. I guess you can't fault them, it's human nature but it's getting way out of hand. I've seen S class boats DISCOUNTED to $55K and the R I'm looking at is Discounted to $88K. It takes nothing to get an R class up in the 120s anymore and what changed? Simtex? A few more horsepower? Aluminum is still the same price. Wood hasn't really gone up, neither has vinyl. I don't believe the employees are making more, only the corporation. What good is 30% off of $128,000 on a boat whos' MSRP should really only be $95,000 in the first place.
We're the frogs in that pot of cold water set to boil story, folks. It's going to be much nastier when it comes to a screeching halt and people start defaulting on those 22 year boat ones only one year in.
They've got the MSRP so jacked up now that they can play every financing / trade in, extended warranty game in the playbook and still clean your clock!
Who will be too big to fail this time??
