    What to pay... 2011 vxs new from dealer

    Found a dealer with a 2011 vxs (1800) for 9897 new (base price wo trailer).

    Any opinions on what I should offer? Wasnt sure how desparate a dealer might be given it is a 2011.

    I like the model, but if there is a reason I shouldn't feel free to explain.

    Thanks in advance. Been without a PWC since 2004 (miss my old 96 Sea Doo XP) and just getting back in to the sport.

    I believe they were selling for $9999 when they first came out.
    Take off a thousand dollars a year and tell him you'll give him eight.
    Settle at $8500 with 3 yr YES warranty.

    Make sure that any recalls it may have are addressed as well. Check the "Known VXR/VXS Issues" thread stickied in the Yamaha 4-stroke performance section.

    I just got a '12 FX SHO for 10300, which is only like $500 more...either I got a really good deal or your dealer isn't giving you a good deal..

    The guy hasn't been on here to talk about it since but he should go look at the blue book value and negotiate off of that like you do for a car holdover. The pwc is going to be worth that the minute he takes possession anyway so it's a good baseline.

    Did you get it out the front door or the back? Either way, you stole that thing. Great deal. Was it new from a dealer?

    Yes, plus tax- no freight, no trailer..so it was 11 and some change out the door. Full warranty. Picking it up on Saturday. Can't wait! I was eyeballing an '11 FX SHO Cruiser for $9899, also new and they only had one. I went down to give them a deposit and some guy beat me by 2 hours! I was so bummed so the sales dude gave me a deal on the '12 FX SHO (non-cruiser) for $500 more. He had 2 left. One Red, One Black, I took the red one. I don't know if the black one is still there or what they were really selling them for but I do think I got a good deal. It was literally cheaper than my 2005 FX HO Cruiser was brand new in 2005. Hilarious!
