Hello,
I am new to posting on this forum, but have been reading through the topics for the past month or so. I have finally decided to pull the trigger on a jetski (My first one) -- I have pretty much decided on the 2011 Yamaha VXR. It seems to have all of the features I would like. The only ones who will be riding it are me and my wife.

Now the question comes down to price -- Looking at the Yamaha website, the msrp on the VRX is $11,199. I figure this is without the trailer/taxes/dealer prep fees. Do you think it is possible in this economy to get a 'out-the-door' price of under 11,000 on this jetski? Any tips on how to negotiate this price? :)

I know for a fact that pwc sales are slow, at least in the Mid-atlantic. My dealer has moved very few skis. A new Load Rite single place galvanized trailer for $700.00 all day long. I aways got a discount off msrp.

Dealer in KY quoted 10,500 for the ski, plus taxes and other fees. I think the out the door was around 11,400 (6% sales tax)
Bummer Delaware has no sales tax :appl:

Thanks for your help!

I struggled for a while on which craft to get -- The VXR or the Seadoo GTX 155. The VXR seems to be a little quicker, but has less optional features. Anything I should know that may sway my decision?

Ive had my VXR for 4 weekends now, and have put 28 hours on it. Best PWC purchase I have made since my 96 Sea Doo XP. Super fast machine, excellent fuel economy, and my favorite aspect is it is super light! I live down in Alabama and straight out of the box mine stays at 72 mph (this past weekend I had a tough time hitting 69 b/c of Memorial Day it was like riding on the freaking Time Bandit) On calm water there isnt a stock boat on the water that will beat you on it, but once in chop the light weight will cause you to lose a few with the heavier Sea Doos. My father and I own and operate a Powersports Dealership and I know for a fact Yamaha has put a lot of empasis on selling this unit, so they are really pushing them on dealers. You can prob get close to that 11k before taxes. Hope all that helps!
