Dec 10 incentive deadline...

Recommended Posts

Cmb396

So a few dealers I've spoken to have given great quotes on 15 models, but say that the price is good til 12/10. One dealer said the price goes up after that. Ummm, never in my life have I seen a leftover year model "go up" in price. Any idea what incentives will be after the 10th on 15' leftovers?

I believe there are some factory rebates that expire

There is a factory rebate on leftover new inventory and new orders. It runs out on the 12th or the 16th I believe. I have seen it across multiple manufacturers through the years.

So when the factory rebate is out, the price actually does go up? That's crazy. I'd think they'd do whatever necessary to unload them.

This is nothing new. Every year Malibu corporate offers rebates on new and leftover boats with expiration in mid-Dec.

Unlike GM or Ford, the program's don't typically get better after the Dec 10th expiration. The rebates simply go away.

I'm rushing to get my 16 order in today to beat the deadline.

Current rebate ends 12/16. There will be a new one for boat show but not as good. I have to get my order together

The reason for this is they are slow right now and nobody is buying boats. When the boat shows start after the holidays the prices will go up because that is when the buying frenzy starts. It is like car manufacturers the next set of incentives will be different sometimes for better or worse. These deadlines give dealers a negotiating chip because of the uncertainty.

Thanks for the info, I'm new to the "new" model purchasing, never bought brand new.

I plan on buying a leftover 15, but just not ready to do so yet. Oh well, it's only money right?!?! <sigh>

I found this link - looks like it's the 16th;

I was told that manufacturer rebates are split with the dealer (i.e. a $3500 rebate is only reimbursable from manufacturer to dealer at $1750, leaving the dealer responsible for absorbing the other $1750) - is that indeed accurate?

That's the rebates. Some dealers might even have a little more to give just to mive inventory as well if they are sitting on a lot.

That is my understanding.
