we are happy to named and expain what we said and why we said it.
re the price
The T40-AE has an RRP 1050 inc VAT and we all get the same discount so the price being offered is cost+ £20.00 and NO we can not match that and would not match that unless an engine was being bought with it. The reason for this is that Honda give all dealers an extra 10% margin if you buy as a package and that would mean we could easily do the deal.
If the price quoted was not including anything else then we would soon be out of business selling at just over 2%.
The request I made to Peter and sorry
if this is wrong or if I did it badley ( I am human and I do make mistakes and english is not a strong point to say the least) is that he was promoting a price from an unnamed company) that was
a: had high postage and not a true reflection of the cost for the item
b: you had to buy a honda engine with it to get that price and hence still missleading
c: an amazing price that must be to get rid of surpless stock and hence will not be there for long so buy now as it will not be repeated but again is not relfective of an online price.
If any company can sell any marine product at that margin and can keep it at that level then they must be huge i.e. a 10 million turnover company making less than 2.5 margin would only make less than £25,000 a year - salarys, office/ workshop rental/ rates, gas, electricty etc.
Our margins are around 10-15% on small items and not engines and 10% or just under on new engines and slightly less for commercail clients where we operate an open cost + margin agreement in return for volume and gtd orders.
Once again sorry if what I did was wrong and/ or I did it in the wrong way but I do stand by what I hope was my point of that the T40 price quoted was either reflective of what the boat normaly sells for as I am guessing it was
not including other things i.e. postage, need to buy an new engine,
or a very special stock clearance price that will not be there for long and not reflective of a normal selling price so buy quickly!
to show how amazing that price is here a few of our competitor links for this item

once again sorry i just wanted the price to reflective of what is normall for that item and not a price that ALL honda dealers could not offer long term and stay in business at less than 2.5 % margins
