    During my daily scouring of Craigslist, I came across a lightly used 2017 Limited S E-series. 20 hrs. Break in maintenance and inspection done. Includes a lot of watersports gear, ski vests, ropes, etc.

    I am interested in this boat. Still practically brand new so I would assume not too many concerns. Anything else I should look for? Warranty?

    Also, NADA does not list a value for this boat since it is the current model year. Any suggestions on a fair price?

    Several members have reported picking up left over 2016 models brand new in the 55k-58k range out the door. So I would say fair would be $50k but fair is in the eyes of the beholder lol. I know I just saw a low hour 2016 limited e series sell for $50K on ebay last week one of the forum members here bought it.

    I
    wouldn't pay anymore then I could get a new left over 16 for so I would say 55k-58k would probably be my cap.

    This FAQ should be of help: Dealer Invoice Info, go to the Marine section and you'll find Yamaha 2016 info....better than nothing until they get their hands on 2017 data.

    This FAQ thread will show you the price difference between all the model years....so you can calculate the delta between '16 and '17

    Mid to upper 50's I would think lightly used but I'm no expert :)

    Any more than that and you could go get a brand new one for the same price with 0 hours

    It really depends - I bet since it is spring the best you will get it for is upper 50's or 10% off new price.

    Depends how desperate someone is also. Some people are more motivated to sell than others.
