    That's about double what it should be priced at.
    $2500 should get you a very nice Virage TXi, Genesis, or MSX140.

    The 700 is the baby motor of the group, and the SLTH was the bottom of the line model offered that year (or perhaps one step above, I don't recall). Either way, that's way too high of a price.

    I sold mine 2 years ago on a trailer for $2000. But is was absolutely mint. As clean of a ski as you will ever find. $1200 would be a steal. If its in good shape, has the ignition update installed, and everything checks out, I would say 1600-2000 is fair, at least in my part of the country.

    Not a bad ski for a first time buyer. I just picked up one a few weeks ago and it is super clean. Where are you located? That will make a difference on price and what to look for. Like if it was used in saltwater. I second the 1600 to 2000 in this area.

    I'm from Nebraska so no salt water. Says she has had it 12 years and has hardly used it, guessing that can be good and bad right?

    Will this model have pump oil? Wondering so if I ask if it's been changed or not.
