And your point is valid. I would never have a 911 as our only family car. And in a boat it's even more so. As much as I like style and flash, we've gone toward space and utility and comfort. Actually buying a boat for many is more like buying a house than a car so your analogy may miss a bit. But sometimes you look at a house that really is just super cool and instant love, but when you start looking closely you realize your furniture won't fit and the kitchen is too small and things that really affect your daily lives.

If you're buying a boat for a day on the lake, it's one thing. When we lived on an inland lake, pretty and fast were important. But if you're buying one to spend weekends, weeks or longer on, then it's more than just a piece of transportation.

I confess too I cannot stick with a 1 for all purpose vehicle
