Thanks! I couldn't remember. I think he has three or four daughters and one son, if I remember the spiel the salesperson told me. Fully custom interior - and very nice!

Re: Annapolis Boat Show October!

I did notice several pitches for "Boat as a Business". You buy the boat, take on the debt and the charter company rents it out and covers your costs. At least for the first few years, you own a boat for nothing but the down payment.

I think the Caribbean charter companies want cats mostly. I think that drives some of the display.

I hated walking past the guy in the tent, pitching this concept like an infomercial. Never buy anything that needs to be sold to you by a guy with a microphone, yelling like a snake oil salesman. I was amazed that the tent was standing room only, every time I passed. People are so often drawn to something for nothing.

The problem is that you depreciate your tax basis to zero. When the charter company is done with your boat in a few years, you have to either sell it and pay taxes on whatever it sells for, suddenly take on all those expenses yourself, like you bought it outright in the first place, or trade up into a newer bigger model and roll your tax basis forward. Guess which one the charter company pitches to you.

Show was awesome, prices are not the best but you can check stuff out and buy it elsewhere. The environment and the town was electric. Touring all the sailboats and seeing all the new products had me like a kid in a candy store. I will definitely be up again next year. Hoping to bring my own sailboat up to the Chesapeake and Annapolis Landing marina.

Re: Annapolis Boat Show October!

Just curious, did they have a "brokerage cove" this year? I looked over to the normal location as I was walking across the Spa Creek bridge on Sunday, and saw nothing over there. The area looked like it was reserved for something (otherwise there would have been boats moored), but there were absolutely no boats - probably the largest boat-free zone in all of Annapolis!

Re: Annapolis Boat Show October!

Whatís the business model? How much were above standard commission were brokers asking owners to pay in order to feature a boat at the show? Of does the cost fall entirely on the broker?

I donít know the specifics, but I know a broker that had several larger boats prepared for the show and was told they didnít have enough. He was annoyed and said thatís where boats are sold at the show. Although, that surprised me too.

It might surprise some to know that not all boats, in the new show, where actually new. Many are recent models and pre-owned. Some were just for demo, others were for sale themselves.
