Get the Best Price On Your New Boat
Method: Cool, Calm and Ready to Walk
Buying a boat is no different from buying a car. Do the research, know what you want and can afford, and have a blank check ready to use. The most important part of your strategy is being ready to walk out at any time. When you find the boat you want, calmly make an opening offer. If the salesman says it’s way too low, wait for a counteroffer. Never negotiate against yourself. Make another offer, still below your final budgeted number. If the salesman balks, that’s it; walk away, and wait for his call back.
Do the research, and walk in prepared and ready to deal.
Make the Offer
Presenting the first number starts the negotiation with the salesman on your terms.
Wait For It
Never negotiate against yourself.
Your biggest weapons are your feet and the door.
