Not at all what I was saying. After what I saw at the show, this year and recently, I would be more inclined to spend my $$ on an older used "Tartan, Sabre or some other high end boat" of equivalent cost then a new Clorox bottle.
If one is in an all cash position then I tend to agree with you. However if one has to finance, it is a lot easier to get financing for new or newer boat than something that is more than 10 years old.
More often than not, people need to finance the boats.
