Anyone cross shop a monterey 224fs?

Recommended Posts

Debating on buying a 2015 chaparral 226ssi with deluxe package and 4.5 vs merc 250hp and 60 hours for $40,000

 

Another dealership reached out to me and offered me a brand new leftover 2018 monterey 224fs with similar options same 4.5 merc and 7 year warranty on everything for about $43,000 plus ttl and delivery.

 

I thought these 2 boats would compete directly with each other but 2018 226ssi are over 80k

If I were you, I would seriously consider the Monty. I have owned two. Would have a third if I could have found a cuddy.

Same power considerations as the Chap however. 4.5L is adequate, but 300HP + V8 is preferred. That is why the 224FS

is "leftover" . And, unfortunately the 4.5L is the only engine option for 2019, and maybe 2018 as well.  With a V8, the 224FS

would be closer to $50K.

Looked at them and did not care for the layout.

 

Beneteau last year came out with there NC33. I saw it at the N.E. Boat show. Great layout, diesel engines, genset and more. Worth looking at.

Generally speaking, I like Monterey.  Went over a couple of them recently at a show.
