That is just what I was afraid of. The competition, even with Swedish top quality costs almost $100K less

I don't see anything on Arcona's website about a U.S. dealer.

USA - Arcona Yachts

http://www.yachtworld.com/gys/

That difference in price regards the boat out of the shipyard. Probably that difference will be smaller if the boat is imported to the US.

Didn't notice any difference and I have not heard nobody complying. Estonia is not china, it is a Baltic country closed connected in tradition, history and even genetically with the other Scandinavian countries. They were occupied by the Russians and are recovering economically from that.

Lots of Nordic boats being built there to take advantage of the cheaper labor and skilled workmanship.
