What about makers such as Catalina, Hunter, Com-Pac and Precision? They have several new model boats under 30ft. Also others such as WW Potter and McGregor, Seaward has a 26 model too. There are others I came across too on the net, don't remember those makers though. Seems like most people would be more likely to buy something like a Catalina 22MkII new then a Catalina 320MkII considering the financial obligation. I also thought not too many people have the time to actually go cruising, not to mention some can't live aboard either. I think now would be a smaller boat market, especially considering the bad economy in the US.
