I wonder if one of the issues in that end of the market is, Yachts are built to order. I know if I had that sort of money in my back pocket, I would be having a boat built to my requirements.

For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.

Here in the States, makers Hunter and Catalina are giving away all sorts of stuff to drum up business. Looks like straight cash discount deal could be made. This sort of tease will definately affect the top end used market as well if it keeps up.
