Buying advice

Hello. We are buying a reasonable size cat new. We understand the benefits and drawbacks of doing this vs buying used. The advice we really need is what sort of discount we should be able to expect off the price of a large new cat? Does anyone have any experience of this on the forum, we would be very grateful for any advice.

Many thanks.

Re: Buying advice

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I've never bought a boat new so wouldn't have any idea about discounts. I just always determined that you are paying twice as much than you'd pay for used so have never done it.
