It's a very small market. I was surprised to learn that less than 2000 new boats over 30 feet were sold in the US last year. As for buying assets there's molds for CS, Bayfield, Nonsuch, Saga, Niagara, and many other companies sitting in fields all over the place. And those were just a few of the Canadian companies that disappeared. Now Saga went to California first and then disappeared. The C&C brand has been unique having more lives than a cat but the new C&C's don't have the same cachet as the old ones so this time it may be the end. Tartan has always been in the same market as Sabre. Maybe Sabre'll buy the molds and put them in a field.
