Yet we all seem to find the money for 42 inch LCD TV's, Ipods and new cars
I think it is actually more priorities than cost. There are cheaper boats around, but maybe the issue is they just aren't good enough for Gen Y?
We want it all now. We want our first boats to recent model production boats with all the Gadgets and comforts?
Congrats on buying your boat though Jonny. Whereabouts are you??
