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

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.

I understand only the Arcona 430 and 460 are built in Sweden, all smaller models are now built in Estonia. Any input on build quality differrences?

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.
