    Not a MC... but just look at the price tag on this 23.5 footer from a competitor! That's $10,000 per foot!

          Man, I would not be happy when I saw the insurance premium for that.

            True, but traditionally we have discussed msrp as a benchmark here for a long time. Search "100K X-Star" around 2008.
            Prior boats - (3) X14's, (3) Prostars, and a Tristar.

              MSRP is a benchmark among manufacturers that publish it WITHIN that same brand

              MSRP (and % off thereof) from a Bu compared to an MC compared to a Nautique is meaningless

                Not exactly. msrp meant little within the MC brand in the heyday when the Cali dealers were selling above msrp and others were in the 12-18% discount. People are getting 20% as a pretty standard mc discount and some are getting 30%. If 30% is the standard 'bu discount, it is still a statement that the msrp well exceeds 200K IMO.

                I'm not over-analyzing the whole msrp. If nothing else it highlights how expensive (in whatever comparison you want) that these boats are getting.

                  And I agree that comparing % off msrp between mfg's is meaningless

                      Except for a few Ballers that want a boat "right now" , not many Tugs boats are fetching over $150k before tax.

                      Maybe X26 and G25.... and they will/do depreciate quick and steep
                      Malibu is not likely selling a lot of boats over $150k before tax

                        The M235 is supposed to be the most expensive wake boat - they didnt cut any corners.

                        You can get a Wakesetter or even an Axis (made by Malibu) for as much, much less than the M235.

                        You also have selected $63,000 of options. That's like spending $100k+ on a base Porsche Boxer (718 now) - nobody does it!

                              I was simply curious to see what the M235 goes for. Comparing 23 footers I suppose the X23 is the closest boat in the MC line-up? If it is, the base price of a M235 is much higher than the X23. What really tweaked me was the total max factory ballast of 5,400 lbs compared to the X23's 3000 lbs. Thats a HUGE difference!

                              I have very limited knowledge when it comes to the Malibu brand. Other than picking colors, you do not have the ability to select any options when building a boat on their website. I called a dealer who put this build together and sent it to me. I guess you'd have to sit down at a dealer showroom to be able to see all options...I see what they are doing here!
