OH forgot!! My dealer strongly suggested that if I was in the market to do it before December because Mercury might be having a price increase around then & it'd be the 1st increase in something like 4 years. That'll add even a bigger $$ being plunked on the counter. he said that's what he's heard but doesn't know for sure.
2022 models start around May so we're already in 2022 now.

Yeah that's a healthy jump for sure.
What kind of % increase are we forecasting for the 2021 - 2022 changeover?
I wish I would have pulled the trigger a few years ago

Ranger raised their prices 10% over 2021 to help paint a picture of new boat prices. I was told a year model to next year model is about 2% normally.
"Supply vs demand" economics with the new economics being "supply vs demand & shortages with supply chains"
Somewhat related to lead times. I've posted that 2 Fridays ago I had an opportunity to check out a Vexus DVX22 delivered to their CT dealer on 9/3 for a boat ordered in January. I know a 2nd dealer who was interested in becoming a Vexus dealer but turned Vexus down because some of their models had 12-14 month build times, & he said he'd be out of business waiting that long for boats. I was told this week that Ranger's running around 14 week build times for some of their models. That's part of the OPs lead time question.

Some people in this thread were talking prices of new boats could fluctuate. I expect that pricing on new boats will continue to rise... but I can't see how a manufacturer would ever reverse course and start to lower pricing on new boats.
Has that ever even happened before?
Basically the take home I am getting is buckle up if you're looking at a new boat as they are basically jacking prices up every year by a lot?

Banks go by NADA values- & NADA hasn't changed. Loans haven't increased, but down payments sure would. Resale values can skyrocket but loan principal amounts wont budge

2020 Ranger 1850 Merc 175 Pro XS
This boat is one year old and no way could sell this for $60 k and afford a new Ranger. My dealer in-stock boats are 250/300 and 400 hp, imagine the price tags on any of those models. When I bought this boat last summer I wanted to order a boat and sell mine a few weeks before the new one was shipped. My wife gave me great advice, buy the boat that's in stock or keep your old one, best advice for sure.

Low new supply, keeping used prices high.
I think it will take a very long time (years) to return to pre-covid price range. The thing to remember is there was a huge supply drop in new boats. Without new boats being built, there are less used ones on the market. The next issue is manufactures cant build enough (labor AND material is more expensive/hard to find) Also means new boats are more expensive than ever, worsening the supply of used boats as people will be less likely to trade up. So even if demand returns to normal (COVID inspired boaters deciding they don't need a boat), we are still stuck with a supply shortage which will keep prices higher for years to come.
