CD - no problem. I believe the boats have actually appreciated in price. As the Euro has crept up even higher against the dollar, the USD cost of buying a new HR has crept up, inflating the price on used ones along the way. We don't have any plans on selling this next boat for quite some time and would be walking into the sale knowing there could be significant depreciation if the dollar strengthens. From what I've seen, the used market pricing is heavily based upon what the boat would cost new. The HR53 is no longer being made, so it's probably being compared against the HR54. On the other hand, the HR53 we're looking at is one of the least expensive on the market due to the fact that it was already located in the US.
Speciald - we've seen the specs on the new 54 and it looks nice, but they are costing a premium over the 55/58 due to the newness of the design. I believe hull #1 has already arrived or will be arriving in the US shortly.
