Very often, especially with new items, whether it be an automobile, airplane or a house, the ďdealer installedĒ options are at a gross markup, and people very often get the way overpriced options. Some believe I guess that way itís covered under the vehicles warranty, which itís often not, but Iím convinced also that itís done out of laziness or because it can be financed into the purchase price
Often times those options are the bulk of a dealers profit, even often you pay for ďdealer prepĒ which one would think thatís why a dealer exists, to prep the item for sale
Iíve seen people pay double for washers and driers and the landscaping and fence etc, because they can afford the payment if itís plowed into the financing
, but no way could they afford to pay cash for each item individually.
Itís not just a Catamaran
or a Lagoon thing.
If you can afford to, buy a vanilla boat
, that way you can spec everything yourself, most often ending up with higher quality components at a lower price
. I mean anchor
Very often that stuff ideally should be larger than usually offered on a stock boat
if your going cruising anyway
