Hello, how are you today? No I'm just kidding.
How we doing everybody? I am back today with an over under for everybody that has gone through their over under withdrawals.
I got one for you.
We had contact.
We made contact.
We didn't believe the contact.
We got some more contact, still didn't believe that.
But we did come to the final deal there.
All right we were wrong.
But we're back.
We have an over under for you on blazer bass boats, 625.
We have a blazer bass boat over under for you.
And it is a good one all right so here's the deal.
Andy picks up phones, hi blazer boats, hi andy team marine service.
Oh, yeah, how's it going.
We have our conversation right? Um, I get to talk into keith craft down there at blazer boats started talking to him about the boat company.
How long they've been doing.
I've been doing it forever.
That's all I'm gonna say they've been building boats for a long time.
The craft family's been building a lot of boats, and they've been doing it a long time expanding getting bigger building more boats.
Basically eliminating the smaller stuff, I went into this a little bit on some of the other stuff that I talked about, but uh, talking to keith basically brother now has moved on he's still on for basically management stuff and he's back building boats and doing what he used to like to do, um and he's just basically involved with what's going on there at blazer.
So I talked to him about the 625.
He commented about the 650, but we're going to talk about the 625.
625 is what everybody wanted to talk about so that's, what we're going to do.
So we get the price back from blazer, and we look at it.
And we kind of are like that's got to be wrong.
No way pricing.
Wise there's, no, no, no, no that's wrong.
So just because we type in blazer dealer, we come to rt marine down in texas, they're ways away from us.
Let's fire them.
An email get a quote comes back at the same price that blazer gave us.
We were wrong.
They were right.
I hope you're ready for this.
And I hope you're sitting down because this is a really good one are you ready? Now, remember, this is 625 with the 250.
The price that we got is merc priced packaged from them from rt marine and blazer.
They were identical.
So the 625 base price is 62.
Two eight, 890.
Zero, are you ready? That's boat motor trailer and here's the end part get your three trolling motor batteries for 460 bucks with trays of throw motor batteries.
One optimus starting battery for 320.
now included in the package ready, two, eight foot blades, one helix, 10 1 helix, 9 at the bow, 4 bank, charger 112, ultrex, 10 inch manual.
Jack plate, 14 inch wheels, freight to dealership.
You gotta pick up a dealership.
We don't really even need that in there, but we're gonna put it in there with a freight all that I just listed everything boat motor trailer.
The list comes to 64 793 let's, go sixty five thousand.
Sixty five thousand dollars for what I just listed on a base price bass boat.
Granted, that's, not we're gonna get into what we usually have on to it.
But 65 grand see brand new boat, 65 thousand dollars blazer 80 miles an hour, fast, comfort ride.
Bp poor man's champion used to be called 60.
I couldn't believe it when the price came down, I went no there's.
We must be missing the motor.
I figured I told jordan, I said, they must give us a price automotive.
They had to and he's like well, let's send this out.
So we sent it out talked to our team marine.
We talked to blazer that's it that is it.
So if you get it from a dealer you're, gonna have service lake test freight, dealership, um, total out the door 65603.
If you get it right from a dealership with exactly what I said, you ready, the boat motor trailer, 250 option trolling motor trays and batteries starting battery.
Then after that, the package includes the blades, the power pole blades, a 10 inch at the dash, a nine at the bow, a four bank charger, a 112 ultrex manual, jack plate and 14 inch wheels that whole deal out the door to you freight shipping lake test everything 65603 to you before tax that's, unbelievable for a brand new boat of that quality of that kind of craftsmanship that that guy has done those guys.
But the craft family has done forever been building boats forever.
And they got the quality.
They've got the craftsmanship.
They care about their customers.
You see the pros that are jumping on the blazer train here.
Now you've got the list goes on and on.
But every I think they've four or five new pros on the blazer train, um it's.
Impressive, what they're doing it's really impressive and to be able to sell this tournament-style boat for 65 603 to you that that is that's awesome.
But now let's turn to page two so you're going to get to where andy inflates the price I like to do it my way all right.
So now you know what we do.
We go in and we do, we want duals at the console.
We want duals up front and I'm saying, locators up front.
We want hydraulic jack plate, um, we got to get the dual mounts.
So we're gonna add that stuff in so we're gonna do some add-ons here because we want it it's all the same.
We want it tournament set up that's how I would do it if I was grabbing a bass boat, and I would tournament rig it.
I'd want the duals duals power poles hydraulic plate, all the good stuff.
The precision mounts all that stuff that's how I would do it so that's, what we're gonna do here we're gonna do some add-ons andy's add-ons.
You ready, it's, pretty cool, andy's add-ons that could be a thing.
Andy's, add-ons, huh? I like it all that stuff is done the way I would want it it's, not built in a package that way.
So when we're doing these add-on stuff that's, why when I do these prices I like to give you the base price.
And I like to give you the like here, this is the package price that they would do.
And then we add our stuff on sometimes when we do these add-ons with these some some of these companies, it cannot be up where fifteen thousand dollars to what their base price is.
So when you're seeing it that's, why I like to give you a base price that's, why I start this thing at the sixty two thousand eight? Ninety, you can buy that boat for sixty two eight, nine, sixty two thousand eight.
Ninety, just without the handy options.
You get some of them, but not all of them.
You know what? I mean so you're getting a single single.
We andy wants dual twelves, dual, tens blinker, hydraulic plate, dual poles 112, ultrax, three batteries, cranking battery, four bank, charger out the door with the cool wheels, that's, what I'm trying to do I'm trying to base it on how I would want my tournament boat set up so that's, where we're at with this that's, why we do it the way we do it? I always try to do them all the same all the same.
No matter if they give me a base price of 74 000.
And then I got to do 20 000 in add-ons that's, how you come up with some of these high prices because we're getting a package deal and it's this much and then we're, adding it up.
So just so you know, that's how we do all these it's my boat my build.
This is how I would want it to be competitive fishing twelves, tens dual poles hydraulic plate, three batteries, charger or lithiums, depending hot foot out the door, trolling motor everything.
I've always said out the door, that's, andy's deal.
So that's, just to clarify all this stuff up.
Sometimes we get some comments and this that and the other, but it's always tried to be the same always try to build the same boat, different hull, different company, different craftsmanship, different quality, that's, what I'm getting at all right here we go.
So we already got one helix.
10, we're gonna add one so that's, basically, two grand 1999.
So we got the two 12s that we're gonna add at the bow.
Then we got the mounts for the duals.
So we got the dual up front.
We gotta do with the console and then we're gonna add the hydraulic jack plate from bob's 10 inch hydraulic jack plate all right.
So we got 2 000 in the 10 you got 4 000 bucks in the 12s.
You got 1100 bucks in the precision mounts.
And then you got 1750 in the bobs.
So you get to that with this that we had here.
So you add all that up with the 65 603 we're at 7451, 74 451 that's, where we're at all completely loaded to the hilt the way I like it, 74 451, loaded beyond you probably ever need just like how we've done every other boat.
But now we got a minus.
We get a minus.
We get a minus of 14.99 for the helix, nine so we're going to deduct the helix 9, because we don't need it.
We just took it out took the value of it and we're going to deduct it from that.
So total package to you how we build these boats, loaded dual dual blanker, trim, um hydraulic jack plate power poles.
Anything we didn't.
Do we didn't do lithiums, but we went with the 31 batteries.
I went with the uh optima, cranking battery with the four bank charger from minn kota got the ultrex on there.
Everything the way we do it.
Seventy two thousand nine.
Fifty two let's, just do seventy three thousand two, seventy three grand for this fully loaded blazer, six.
Twenty five sign me up.
I mean, I've seen them I've ridden in them.
I've been I've I've touched them there.
I mean, dean earlhas has got one go.
Look at dean's.
The list is getting bigger.
I think spencer's going to be in one.
I they just did another three guys like two weeks ago, they're gonna be around, um at 73 000 for a fully rigged, tournament, tournament-ready, bass boat from a company that's been doing it for so long.
And when it comes to precision when it comes to finish when it comes to family, I think I think I think I'd go.
Look at one guys.
I would take the time, and I'd take the time to go and check out blazer boats and check out what they are who they are what they've accomplished.
How long they've been around.
If you don't know who they are and go find a dealer if not call down the blazer and talk to somebody down there every time I call down there, they've always been helpful, they've always been able to get to the point.
We just had some problems here of how we did things and how they wanted to do things that's kind of why this review took so long.
But we got to the bottom end.
We got seventy three thousand dollars in a brand new bass boat, tandem axle trailer, big old, rims and everything I want on it right to your door that that is completely respectable completely respectable on my part.
So, um, at the end of the day, blazer, bass boats are undervalued for sure undervalued at 74 000 for the longevity of that company for the amount of family feel you get when you call down there customer service to the quality of product and to know that the guy who started the company is still there today, making sure the products are done the way that they did it way back when with the same passion and commitment, just with higher quality products.
Now, there's, no more to say, it's way, undervalued, it's way, undervalued, um, like I said, this price came down, and I couldn't believe it.
I could not believe that I was getting what I said in the first page for 65 000 bucks.
I mean, it was, I was like there's, no way.
They got to be missing something, but no three times we've been back and forth.
This is it.
This is the price out the door to you.
74 000 bucks.
I'd go if I was in the market.
I'd probably just probably go look at your blazer.
Basketball dealer today.
Tomorrow check them out.
I would that's that's, that's, crazy, that's, crazy.
What I got for you, it was a kind of a short review, but it was quick to the point.
I hope you appreciated it.
Because like I said, it took me longer to get this information than it did for us to do this.
This has been a long one coming, um.
But I was super excited when we got the numbers and I'm even more excited.
Now, knowing that I can go pick one up for 74 grand brand new out the door, the way I like it, awesome, awesome, awesome.
So if you haven't seen one go check them out if you if you have one comment in here, tell me how much you like your blazer boats, tell me how much how many you've had tell me what you're doing tell me you did some test rides.
I want to hear some info.
Let the people know how cool blazer boats are let the people know the value of that.
Because like I said, you talk to keith down there and he's still still, pumping the passion that he did a long time ago.
So the end of the day blazer boats is undervalued.
I'd go get one and take the time to spend the money go look at a place as always comment, subscribe click, notification bell to witness the madness that I call speed money.
No brakes go check out here.
Please I'm out see you.
