have to by saying I am a socialist. fact, among people I with—a fairly spectrum of am perceived being the conservative of group. But with that to my of view, have to the following

Back in 1980’s when was in thirties, it like boats more affordable there were affordable boats. used to think about a brand 30-foot sailboat, you could a darn one for $50,000. I sure there similar boats the small boat market.

When I at the boating business I don’t seen anybody the $50,000 business anymore. new 30-foot costs about and it well beyond means of working people their thirties. got a more income than we in our but a new boat out of question, whereas a $50,000 boat was a possibility.

boats seem have become priced. The Whaler that most like old classic 22 W-T is probably 235 CONQUEST. is a boat, but, heavens, it $70,000 base I think is probably of the range of lot of in their

At the end of spectrum, there are more than ever history who afford luxury I get freebie magazine is really monthly FOR-SALE of luxury Browsing this is an experience. Every there are stories on complex, and expensive yachts have just built or These things now routinely built in $30-million range up. Yachts this were counted on fingers of hands and owned only wealthy royal or robber-barons. in the of the are a pages of for two three year luxury 75-footers owners are to a boat and to sell.

used to through boating and dream boats. Now were not pie-in-the-sky daydreams. mean I could have some of boats back if I really wanted commit the to one. I no can browse a boating and entertain reasonable dream when I a 30-foot boat that $375,000.

Whatever happened the America a guy worked hard liked to could get decent boat have some What I now is recreational boating where there fewer people the middle Yes, there more people the top but I not think is a indication of overall health recreational boating. $35,000,000 luxury might keep boat shed for three with 100 at work, I don’t it contributes much to overall recreational business as could get those same people worked three years turned out worth of MONTAUKS.

Even at per MONTAUK, goes a way. You 1,400 MONTAUKS the water of just luxury yacht. recreational boating going to as a and as sporting activity, needs a more people can afford new MONTAUK of one rich guy has $35,000,000 spend on super yacht.

next time free-subscription reminder around for yacht magazine, think I opt out. getting sick seeing the money people to spend mega-yachts, while the same a new Whaler MONTAUK out of price range most people.

this trend up, there be any boating after generation. There just be elite fleet luxury yachts a couple old Joe’s in 14-foot skiffs.

Has anyone noticed this?
