Re: An idea for a new voyaging sailboat

Overbored: I'd like to know wheter you considered John's idea. Where is the flaw in his argument?

In short the argument goes: 1. The Oceanis 45 costs 225k. The Adventure would be smaller(shorter and narrower), so the price should be possible, from the standpoint of material costs. 2: Cheap blue water cruisers have been thought of, of course, but the case against has been that the market is to small for the volumes needed to push the costs(i.e. initial costs like tooling). By scouting out a market first, investors could be convinced. Right?
