I've never really thought much about it (never bought a new boat) until comparing several quotes from dealers recently and seeing huge variation on the fees
associated with freight, commissioning, etc with the vessel.
Is there a standard list price
from the manufacturer for each geography and has anyone seen it? It seems like the rates charged in the US are far more reasonable vs Asia
as well... One dealer in Asia
tried quoting me 77k EUROS for freight charges from Beneteau
... then changed it to 40k... Still in what I classify, "let's hope the customer is a stupid idiot" category.
Any idea what actual fees
are from the manufacturers to dealers in terms of ballpark # or %?
