In my experience, if you are buying a "package" deal configuration that the dealer has put together on a boat that he/she has in stock already, there is limited room for negotiation, if any. If you are ordering a new boat
that is not in stock yet, there may be some room to negotiate how it is configured, but it depends on how popular the model that you are ordering is.
Where you may have better luck is on all the extras that you may want to add on top of the package deal at the time you buy the boat. For example, if you want to add electronics
, you may be able to negotiate some discount on the installation
labor, etc. Occasionally, the dealer may have some other equipment
in stock that is willing to let go for a favorable price in order to close the deal. In general, though, do not expect major savings. The economics of boat dealers is not the same as car dealers.
