LOL. Let say I never owned the boat
WHat does it change? I can't discuss the price or features or boat market?
What poor guy, who owned 10 boats, but all of them been cheap
as car, knows about super cats and reasons why people pay 1M for boats? People only have knowledge about what they personally experienced. You're trying to say that purchasing
the boat and boating
itself is same thing, but they are two completely different things.
There are market rules, and they apply to anything - shoes, cars, houses, boats. And not sailing, but deep market research
, analysis, monitoring might give an idea what is what. I'm only watching small segment, and I'm familiar with it. I'm not familiar with monohull
market, or cheap
boat market, or multi million dollar market.
And that's how I do ANY purchase
- house, phone
. I don't need to own 10 cheap laptops before I can buy good one. I simply can do research
and pickup BEST for the money
. Yes, I did mistakes
when I was purchasing
first house, because I was young and stupid enough to trust realtor. Most stupidest thing in the world - to trust dealers, brokers, but even more stupid to buy something without any clue what the current
market is (and it constantly changes).
I showed samples of sales, comparison to other boats on the market with similar size/features, and you just trying to give me hard time by saying it's all wrong because I never owned the boat
Actually, there are many guys in this thread who proofed my points, some of them seen this cat in person, but I guess, they also not good enough for you
Anl last thing - if boat for 6 years "on and off" on the market - what does it change?
There are no buyers at this price, sellers can keep it this way forever, but this just proof that price has nothing to do with fair market value.
