What's she Truly worth in this market?

I know the market is starting to change and prices are coming down a little. What do we truly think this boat is worth. Its on my radar to purchase but I'm more in the $120,000 range. They are asking 129,900.  Not that it matters but I'm looking to trade my 2011 VLX in on it also.

Doesn’t seem like too bad of a price for decently optioned and crazy low hours. Seen some for a lot more. Work out a trade value with them and see what they’re willing to do price wise, it’s really hard to compare prices based on region and boats varying so much. The worst they will say is no.

I have my 18 25 lsv listed for that price as well, but mine has more $$ in paint, trailer, tower etc.  Absolutely no bites or interest.  I was offered 100k @ local dealer trade in.  I have seen these go quick @ around 109-110k.  I would think you could get it for 110 no prob right now.

I don’t know the Cali market that well, but even earlier this year I am quite certain you could get a 2018 for less than they are asking in the Midwest.  I think that would especially be true now.

not intending to be snarky, but its only worth what you (or someone else) is willing to pay -- not surprised its sitting at 129k without any movement.  Factors (beyond being dead of winter so no one is shopping) could include 2018 means its probably just out of warranty and super low hours makes me a little nervous (was it really used <20 hrs/year or did it spend a year or two unused and sitting)?

i concur with @anutami that 110k probably moves that boat quick.  but what do i know, doesn't take more than one person to 'change' the market.

Are you willing to travel?  There's a few on Onlyinboards.com.  This one is a 2018 in your price wheelhouse, has a few decent upgrades: https://www.onlyinboards.com/2018-Malibu-Boats-25-LSV-for-sale-Atascadero-California-144445.aspx

Two 2018's at mninboard.com both at 115k, both with the 575 motor.  The red, white, and blue one has been surfed hard for sure, idk about the other ones.

If it was me, I'd be trying to get into a 2019 with an M6 (or 555) motor and the updated hull design, flip down swim step, updated dash, etc.  Raptors in the 2018's are louder, and that boat interior looks a lot more dated IMO.  Here's a 2020, not sure on hours: https://www.onlyinboards.com/2020-Malibu-Boats-25-LSV-for-sale-Somerset-Kentucky-143284.aspx

Im defiantly willing to travel for the right boat . I need to also sell my current 2011 VLX which is why I have been looking at local dealerships.
