Default Are these still "New" boats

What do dealers do about these new boats when they sit in the water 8-9 months and are exposed to extreme weather conditions...do they still represent them as "NEW" Boats this spring??

If they have never been titled to a new owner, then yes, they are sold as new.

Interesting...55+ inches of snow this year, severe temperatures (11 degrees last night w/o windchill factor) and locked in ice with 35-45 MPH winds...not exactly how I would consider purchasing a "NEW" 32' Cabo!

That really doesn't seem right or ethical!

What are you worried about? The dealer will knock off a thousand bucks in order to compensate you for the "wear and tear" (but only after he jacks up the price by $2,000 to make up for it!).

Legally sold as new? Sure. But you are talking about dealers....

In search of the elusive sale, ethics, morals and values are mostly thrown out the window.

When I drive by a dealer that has all of his inventory sitting uncovered out in the rain (and/or the blazing heat) I just shake my head.

Some buyers don't seem to give a crap about the condition of their boats (or don't know what they have been exposed to), but not me. That is a major reason why I order my boats (and new vehicles).

Sure, some stuff can be washed/detailed off, but there will also be some damage that will remain for the life of the boat.
