Interesting points to ponder. Especially the point about smaller production boats vs. larger custom or semi custom high end yachts - which bodes well for me considering I'm considering something in the 28-32 foot range...
An economist would probably argue that the used boat market is not an "efficient" market given
1) With a few notable exceptions (Catalinas, J/24 etc.) there often aren't a lot of a given model available on the market - for instance smaller Freedom Yachts by Gary Mull currently (1) 28', & (2) 30'
2) Being a luxury, boat purchases are an emotional transaction, not a rational one
So here's hoping that the guy selling me my boat is a step away from insolvency...
