Local dealer has 2009 190 Outrage brand-new leftover for about $43,000 before the Whaler rebate of around $1500.Is this reasonable? What is standard discount on a leftover.

[Introduced another topic; you already have a discussion going on that topic in THE GAM. Look for responses there.--jimh]

You should mention the MSRP of the 190 OUTRAGE and its options. The price can vary depending on how the boat is equipped. The 2011 model year is almost upon us, so a dealer with an unsold 2009 should be getting ready to bargain.

Only options are Fishing package and livewell, stereo and CD with Sirius, trailer, and pads for bow seating. A 200-HP engine is the big option. The pedestal seats were stolen, but [the seller] will replace. Also, unit has been outside on marina lot. Boat yards and marinas are normally kind of small places. He doesn't have an indoor showroom.

I would very carefully inspect all the cushions. If they have been outside for all this time they have probably been well soaked and will have some stains on the bottoms. That's not a big deal but you will have to dry them out well and clean them up.

If the boat has been outside without a cover for all this time the dealer could have done better in caring for the boat. He is probably VERY ready to deal.

I would make an offer in the range of 30% below MSRP which will be fairly close to his cost. Of course he has been paying interest on his floor plan loan for a long time so he has more in the boat than he wants. Under no circumstances would I pay more than 25% off MSRP and I would not pay for any so called "make ready or PDI" charges, transportation or documentation charges. My best and final offer would be MSRP minus 25% plus any applicable taxes "out the door".

I would require an on the water test to ensure that Verado is in good operating condition. I would also require the Smart Craft gauges be set up. It is important that the fuel remaining setting be done.

Tha boat with a 200 HP Verado should be a very nice package.
