Re: 6 Cabins 5 Bathrooms on a 47 foot mono
From a personal point of view, I totally agree. However, the individual owner nature of these charter fleets requires the ability to upsell the owner, when the initial 3-6 year period is over. I suspect they've factored that in somehow. It's the only way they sell the next gen of boats. The really big fleets often take the old hull on trade (although, I have to assume you could do better yourself, just like trading in a car).
That begs the question, what do they do with the trade ins?
I guess if you could buy one cheap enough it might be worth re-configuring the interior to make it more practical for a couple...
Gotta, say, the head right by the bed is really off-putting.
