Been a boat/yacht/shipbuider for many years in Australia, i gotta a say there's farr better and surer ways to make money for energy expended.
Making a margin on buying and re-selling a boat is possible of course it all depends on the market at both times you enter it. A vast majority of boat owners will attest the happiest days of ownership
were the day before and day after the ownership
You can make a 10% profit on a wheelbarrow but it doesn't prove anything other than your luck/prowess as a salesman.
As Downunder points out the first owner takes the hit (financially) simply because he wants a new boat, we could never afford to do such a thing, we never went into this to make money just to extend our life doing what we want and travelling the world in the comfort we want. Don't care much about what others see our life, boat etc as.
When we anchor
in company we usually share the anchorage with between mono's cat's and motor
cruisers, the people on board are all the same, either friendly and outgoing or wishing to be alone. We join in with those that want to and other than friendly jibing no one gives a rats-arse what boat you float...
That stuff is only in these Forums
and usually proffered by people without a boat or have a boat and don't use it.
I came into this Forum's topic to show what you get in a larger Lagoon for your money IF you are prepared to do it, not just sit Googling looking for supportive argument but actually spending your hard earned and DOING IT.
Advertised prices and reality are worlds apart unless the seller has a plan, that could be to sell quick hence cheap
, to maybe sell if someone comes along prepared to pay the inflated advertised price not really caring how long that takes OR the price is inflated to handle the offers, boat's it seems tend to attract 'offers'.
Many people read an advertisement for a vessel and the first thing they turn to their partner and say is 'wonder if he'll take "x" dollars for it? WHY because the price is always PRESUMED to be inflated.
Some then refuse to enter the market preferring to 'build their own', they quickly find out why it's so hard to make money building boats, it's a time consuming finicky and costly exercise.
So back to the OP's question without the silly jibing some have done on this thread.
Re: Why. Used Seawind is so much Higher Price than Lagoon
The answer is simple for Australian built unit's. BECAUSE it's built in Australia where wages are extreme and most things are imported (it's an island still).
That's my opinion nothing more.
