Thread: Dealer Price

  1. #1

    Dealer Price

    Does anyone have the inside scoop on what a dealer actually pays for these jet skis? I want to buy an FZR SVHO and want to toss cash out on the table, however, I don't want to get worked over either. I want to know what the dealers pay for these skis at invoice right from the manufactured. If anyone knows for sure, (please no guessing)... Let me know. Thanks, Sam.

    Talk to Rivera Racing. He just bought one the other week. I think the dealer showed him his cost on the ski.

    You'd probably get more help if you weren't such an a-hole.

    Ive always heard you get better deals when financing then paying cash. Might wanna weight out both options. Are you sure you can handle an svho coming from a kawi that's a huge jump in speed lol

    From my personal exp. I bought my 2011 ultra 300 in the late fall (Nov) of that same yr,the original MSRP was $14,449 just the ski....
    Been a customer many yrs there but still shopped around ,we agreed on $12,100 just for the ski then there is of course Docs,tax,trailer(optional) warranty (optional) No freight or Prep...
    While waiting for papers put together,the mgr of parts showed on his computer screen the list of skis,MCs,ATVs the wholesale cost that Kawasaki sent for the ultra 300 (invoice) was $10,800 but there is a bonus incentive from Kawasaki when a ski sells and that was another $800 I am told.

    So that would be 1300 on initial sale 800 bonus incentive but dealer pays freight /prep and obviously all the overhead.

    Thats what I remember a few yrs ago,hope it helps you

    Just like anything they have a dealer invoice.Perfect world you can buy the Ski invoice minus the rebate plus trailer and tax.Some dealers that do this have a $99 doc fee at minimum.

    no matter what... your not going to get the ski for their cost.. or even 2-300 bucks above their cost.. they have time and labor into building the machine, prepping the machine, having to pay to have the ski shipped to them.. plus take into consideration tax, title, and dm fees...

    just because the ski costs a certain amount does not mean that that is all they have into the machine..

    some dealers will eat the "prep and freight" and be willing to work a deal with you.. but not if you go in there like a big shot making it rain on them.. trust me, its right at the start of the busy season and the fzr is a hot machine and they would rather tell you no and wait a week for someone to come and pay full retail for the machine then make 200 bucks...

    if my memory serves me correctly.. the dealer cost is somewhere around the low 12s... i cant remember off hand but i want to say it was around 12200.. i bet the lowest cash price theyll take is somewhere around 13500 out the door without a trailer..

    This is the truth for cars when the manufacturer is also the financing institution. So I would assume the same applies to pwcs. The manufacturer usually gives some incentive to the dealer to try and finance all deals, because the manufacturer then gets to collect interest.

    If your dealer is offering the financing directly through Yamaha, do not tell them that you intend to purchase cash. Negotiate the deal as if you were going to finance, and then when you're set on price that you like, take the cash out and pay it.

    If your dealer does not offer financing through Yamaha directly, then you might get a better deal if you tell them you're doing a cash purchase.
