Fair price for new Sport 150 (2004/2003)

This is my first posting, and I would like to ask for your collective advice on pricing. Some time ago we had an older 15', sold it due to a move, and now are looking to buy a Sport 150.
On a near-barebones 2004 Sport 150 I've seen (hull/Merc 60hp 2-stroke/trailer), I believe the list price breakdown is as follows:
base list $12,756
total list $13,523
I'm considering making an offer of about $11,500, based on a 15% discount. I would plan to add actual tax, title, and registration fees but no dealer prep.
Would this offer give the dealer a fair profit?
I'm also considering a more loaded 2003 (with 4-stroke, top, cushions). Would an offer based on:
20% discount on the 2003 base list,
give the dealer a fair profit on this past model, at this time (June, 2004), on the Texas Gulf Coast?
Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.

Miles, that price looks pretty good to me. I know I've seen them with 4 strokes for around $15K. Seems like I saw them when they first came out a couple of years ago for $12,900. If you get one for $11,500, you've done well.
