Re: Why buy a brand new $150,000 sailboat?

Thanks to those that buy new boats. This way others can have nice used boats. I don't begrudge anyone for buying a new boat; in fact i envy them at times. When i win the power ball i'll get my custom boat.

Sometimes it makes sense. I met a couple from NYC in a new 57 footer ($840k). They did the math. A new house in NYC, $800k; taxes $25k(or more). It was about the same to live on a new boat on the water! Of course it didn't hurt that they had some money as well.
