Dealer margins on New Boats

Frank...good insights. But a question. Let''s say you didn''t order a VHF with the boat. Would that mean that the factory would not run wires in the bundles to the usual location? I only bought one new boat and it was a small Beneteau and was relatively spartan. Older boats, in some cases, tend to be more user friendly for "add-ons". I hear plenty of horror stories from yard guys about the larger powerboats. Real headache to add things. Builders know the importance of having that extra wine rack even if it means you can''t get to the wiring leads.
