Not surprised at all. When we ordered our Seawind cat, there was a long list of options to choose or not. Plus delivery was about 11 months out. Unless it's hull number one of a brand new model, the boats are "sold" before the hull is laid up. Boats in the show all belong to individuals. Probably some financial incentive given. But Seawind is not building spec boats for shows.
