Default Used boat prices.

Do you guys think prices are starting to soften? Not talking about the normal end of summer softening but the crazy times. Also, what are delivery dates being quoted on new Lundís, Rangerís, Crestlinerís, Skeeters and so on.

Just curious.

I don't. When Covid first hit, I was sure there would be a huge drop in the recreation market. Obviously, I was 180* wrong.

Personally, I see no reason to think prices will soften any time soon. It's not like there was a huge influx of additional boat production. In fact, it was mostly the opposite, less boats produced. And that still doesn't seem to be changing. Add to that nearly double digit price increase on new boats, and there really is no reason for prices to come down.

If I am looking at my crystal ball, I would say we are at least 2 years before prices changing. If it happens.

I don't think so. Prices for 2022 are going to be 10 to 12 percent higher than 2021s. Used won't be going down for a while

I don’t see used boat prices going down for 2-3 years.

The OEMs have more orders for 2022 than they can build, prices are going up across the board, and that will keep demand focused on the used market - that equals high used prices.

I think it’ll take a while for demand/supply to even out and prices to soften.

Nope.

My boat was ordered in Jan, arrived Aug 10th. One of the last 2021 crestliner made in that model. When I picked it up the dealer said price went up 13% on the same boat for 2022. Used prices dont seem to have moderated at all.

Default 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.

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


Happy fishing!!

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?
