I was looking for a boat this spring, just your average full window, 17-18ft aluminum boat and I ran across so many that were overpriced. I looked at many of the dealers in the state and they were a good 3-5k high on a lot of the used boats this time of year. I keep an eye on craigslist and bisman but the deals go quick. I finally found a couple I liked in Fargo and talked to the guy selling them and it turns out he just started a small business selling boats and powersports.
Up North Recreation is the name of the company and the guy that runs it is named Jon. He actually had a few nice boats and he was really really reasonable on the pricing. He is a great guy and really took care of me. I ended up taking a 2008 Smokercraft from him that is a nice boat that looks almost new. I have never had a better experience buying any vehicle in my life so I have to recommend him if you are in the area, the address is 3241 Main Avenue Suite #A and phone number is 701-200-6401.
Just wanted to help those of you that might be looking for a good used boat.
