I was wanting to see the Salona 35 and 38.
A difficult industry to make money in for sure
Unless they had a serious disagreement with the boat show organizers. That story of economic trouble is kind of odd since that boat show is not only in their country but in their home town so the costs of having boats there would be minimal. if you wanted to see the boats you could as well went to the shipyard that is in Salona on the industrial zone of split.
They have been recently (less than a month) in a boat show in France ( Port Camargue) with the 35 and 41 and for what I can tell the boats are selling well in North of Europe. Some months ago in Dusseldorf I meet and talked with Nenad, their sales responsible and they had plenty of commands.
Very intriguing in fact, but as you say it is very hard to survive with a strong competition and a depression in Europe.
