Re: Production boats- justified bias?
Mason owners don't come down in price but I am seeing some reduction over the last 3 years.
We sold ours in NZ in a down economy for more than we paid for it, put into it and sailed it for 2 years across the pacific. A couple from Europe flew in and loved it offered me a price that made sense to me. Most likely lucky but a lot of sailors wanted it.
They hold a good value because they are a very well made boat and they are beautiful to look at. I miss that look but we are moving on to something much more important to us. A modern centerboard boat that really sails. Just think of the anchorages in the Bahamas that few can get to.
Well, after this year's season I guess you will know enough to make a full comparison in what regards sailing. It is booked then, I mean that comparison.
I guess we are all very interested
and this is the right thread to do it.
