Re: Annapolis Sailboat Show Observations & Notes

Well it seems to me there are a few common themes:

1) Sailing is declining amongst the younger generations;
2) The cost to be a sole-owner of a sailboat is becoming prohibitively expensive;
3)...

Re: The Future of Boat Ownership

It goes to economy of scale. If there is not enough demand for sailboats, then fewer of them will be produced. The ones that will be produced will be out of the price range of most people. It will...

Re: New Catalina Yachts
