Good news if you are buying a boat?
Talked to a friend who has been a broker for 30+ years and really knows his stuff. He said that it has been the busiest winter in several years and that boats are selling very well on the Great Lakes and Atlantic Canada - not so much in New England and Long Island Sound. Apparently sellers have reduced their prices by something like 40% from the peak and this has made the market quite hot of late. Perhaps a new normal has been discovered, at least for the eastern Canadian market. Where it goes from here who knows?
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
