    That’s what I’m afraid of. Getting the boat delivered, then there’s an extra $30K tacked on the price. If I had known at the time I placed my order that this was a possibility, I probably wouldn’t have moved forward with the purchase.

    There was no mention of Force Majeure during the purchasing process and it’s not like Covid is a new thing. Supply chain disruptions were happening since last summer and pricing could have been adjusted at the time of the 2022 launch. An immediate 15% bump in price over the traditional 3-5% would have put a few prospective customers off, including me, so that’s probably why MC didn’t announce a higher price at launch. But to affect the price change once your customer has signed a purchase order and paid a deposit? That's a thinly veiled bait and switch.

    We’re three months since launch and MC didn’t know they would have to raise prices this much? Really?

    I know all of these prices are getting ridiculous but it’s all relative. How many of you remember your jaw dropping with the first Mastercraft hit $100k. I remember thinking then that the bottom would have to fall out soon. Well, here we are and it hasn’t happened yet. Lol

    Really, really, really glad I jumped to the X22 when I did. Took delivery in March 2020, just as all this was starting to ramp up. Funny, there was a time I thought $156K for a boat was stoopid money (it was). Now it seems like a bargain.

    The heavy increases are not exclusive to wake boat companies....
    I have been pricing Center Consoles alot lately because were about to purchase another one. Im headed Ft. Lauderdale today in hopes on getting one this wekend a the show if the price is right. Yes the prices did increase, but I can still get a 28-30ft around 250k-300k depending on engine options. Also depending on brand, I can get a 32-33 for sub 300K.

    The boat industry pricing is rising rapidly, to the point where I think they are going to out price themselves to alot of people. Luckily I don't need a boat now so I can hold off waiting on the right deal because they are out there, just hard to find.

    Budget boats now are 100K.

    Are you seeing issues now that your more involved from a dealer stand point?

    Hell you could spend 100K on an MC and still have 300K to purchase a 30ft center console and have the best of both worlds.
    I’m not saying I disagree it’s stupid to spend 400k on a paragon, but no way am I looking to wakeboard behind an outboard. Just different uses.

    Jees, run don't walk the [email protected]#@#$ away from that deal. You're agreeing to buy something that you don't know the price ? No thanks.

I hope MC honors the pricing agreed with the dealer for boats on order and deposits paid.
    Oh we have the same situation. Bu still told us 3% increase on those boats. Which we can eat or pass on to the consumer.
