I would agree, it started with smaller builders, now a BIG builder or two is finally doing the, design a fast boat for the masses. I'm recalling seeing that an E350 maybe showing up here in the Puget Sound/Salish Sea area of the US/Canada where I am. J111 shows up in June, first new boat J dealer has sold in 3-4 yrs IIRC. Maybe the depression/recession is ending to a degree here locally. Altho the Jeanneau Dealer has been selling boats. 8 or so ea of the 36i/39i. Also surprising how many of the 45-50' DS models too.
Anyway, off to motor the boat south for a race, starting to get light here at 6;45 am or there abouts.
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
