Sweet boat! Welcome and let's see some pics when it comes in!
It's been said here before, but just use the line "That's not acceptable" and see where it leads. Having alternatives from another dealer helps too. Bad time of year to negotiate a good price.I live in the Orlando, Florida and am ready to buy a Bennington Pontoon Boat. I am trying to decide between the NEW SFX20 and the SFX22. The SFX20 has a 70 HP Yamaha and the SFX22 has the 90 HP Yamaha engine. Any suggestions as what might be the best choice would be helpful.
Also, how do you negotiate a price on these boats. All I have been able to do is get the factory suggested retail price from the three dealers that I have been talking with. I will be paying CASH with no trade in. I have my own tandem pontoon trailer. I have never paid the suggested retail price on any new automobile that I have purchased and believe that I should be able to buy a boat for a less than sticker price. Anyone who has experiences in negotiating a price on a new Bennington would be appreciated. My email is: Houston@cfl.rr.com .
I live in Inverness and also bought my boat at Apopka Marine. I have been very happy with their service, etc.Thanks to all of you good people who responded to my request about negotiating a price on a boat. You all really helped me a lot.
I have now purchased a New SFX 22 with a 115 HP Yamaha. I will pick it up next week. I bought it about 60 miles away at Apopka Marine Center in Inverness. I believe that I got a good deal based on all of your help and input.
