Boat buying slowing down?

Question is - do you think a broker is ever going to say "Business sucks right now, nobody''s buying a thing."? Probably not - these guys sell boats, and they can''t carry gloom and doom around with them.

That being said, it seems that pretty much eveyrone I know that''s looking to sell their boat recently has done so, some very quickly. It would appear that the market is pretty strong, although in the Northeast we''re hitting the peak of the buying time now.

My C&C 37 just closed, that took about 4-5 months to get a contract on. I know another guy at our club who had is J-34(?I think?) on the market for about three hours before he had a contract. I don''t currently know anyone that is sitting on a boat they can''t move, and there are quite a few people with new boats this year.
