Re: Why buy a brand new $150,000 sailboat?
Lets see, bought a 22K boat, then proceeded to put some 60K into it with sails, interior etc.....so about 85K. Could have bought a new version for just over 100K, and not spent all the time fixing it over 3 yrs, could have been sailing. Granted I did a pretty major redo vs some of you, but none the less.......
As far as new cars go. Just remember, if you buy a 3 yr old car, you have no warrenty to go with said car either. From a business standpoint, it is cheaper to buy a new car especailly a truck vs used. After some time, it costs more to maintain and fix a rig, than it cost to buy new. Hence why I have always bought new trucks for biz. For personal use, might make more sense to buy a used car. but have never penciled it out.
