Msrp vs actual cost

Postby kthibodaux » Mon Jun 20, 2016 9:57 pm

Im looking at buying the 2300 rx in the future. Doing all the research i can before actually going to the dealer. Been looking at cobalts, chaparral, pretty much every brand. I like the regal 2300 rx the best. On the see dealer cost website they dont have the rx, just the regular 2300. But adding the power tower and sport graphics i figure ill be somewhat close to the rx cost. Maybe a few more thousand for rx. The cost came out to 83k msrp and 58k dealer cost. About how much do they come off the msrp?
Also on a side note, can the boat be towed with the seperate bow and cockpit covers? Or should i just get the full cover. I dont need both types of covers, i feel like thats a waste of money

When I purchased my first boat it was strongly recommended not to tow with the bow and cockpit covers so we didn't. I know of people that have and do tow with them. I also know of someone that lost it while traveling down the highway. My recommendation is to get a cover rated for towing.

Found that out a month ago after 30+ years of boating. Was not pretty!

I'd think 23-28 percent off MSRP is probably where you would land. Good luck.

As others stated, 25 percent to 30 percent off of Msrp is where you will end up but the other factor is the year of the boat and how much of a leftover the boat is. A boat that is two years sitting on the lot will have much more flexibility than a boat that regal will build and ship.

I sell 8 different boat lines and can tell you most dealers use a cost up approach to selling a new boat not discount from MSRP. Many manufacturers now have a build a boat on their internet sites which makes it impossible to get the markups of the past because they know every manufacturer is doing the same thing. Also you must note that shipping and rigging is not included in many prices and can drive the cost of the boat up. Shipping and Rigging is expensive to the dealers. Generally the larger the boat the less the markup from cost.
