It wasn't too long ago when the 318CC was that price. I agree, as long as folks are willing to pay, prices will continue to rise. I'd love to buy a bigger boat, but I refuse to join the frenzy. The entire economy is waiting for the consumer to cry uncle, but with folks spending like they have a money tree in their backyard, who knows when that will be. At some point we'll come out of this drunken spending stupor, and it's going to be an eye opener.

24 Edgewater's cost near that much back in 2010. I'm actually shocked its not significantly higher. And they are well made.

Nope, no, nopity no no. Rather buy a new 'vette and a new Yamaha R1 with money left over to buy a used one.

Base MSRP for 2010 Edgewater 245 with Yamaha F250 and tandem trailer was around $96k.

Boat pricing is insane.

I bought my 2017 Everglades at the end of 2016 and paid $109K for it- loaded, every option but trolling motor. Today its a $185-190K piece. In 5 years.

More and more it makes sense to buy a solid 30 yr old hull/trailer for $15k, sink $10k in refresh, $10k in new tech/electronics, and a gently used $15k 4 stroke on the back.

$50k total for a solid 25 ft w/modern electronics and modern reliable 4 stroke power.

Sounds about right. Had a yami 350, trailer, electronics, etc. Still 11 years ago and not long after 2008 did its thing.

I saw 24 ft in the title and assumed 245, but it looks like he is talking about a 23' 230cc at $140k though not a 25', so I guess my analogy is still off. Silly boat naming conventions.

The trouble is finding a solid (meaning no rotten floors, transom, or stringers) on a trailer for what you quote. Crappy ass Contender 27’s with 25 year old motors are still selling for $80k and up. In 2014, I paid $11k for a 2002 World Cat 266TE. No motors, broken electronics, horrible trailer, and had been sitting for 8 years. I would love to find that now. You can’t buy that bare hull on a crappy trailer now for less than $20k.
