well another spin on this is.
you are in the right circles and have the cash.
the builder want to get boats out so u get a large discount,,,
magazine prints retail
you run it while its for sale and maybe you get close or just under what you actually paid the new owner thinks he got a great deal as he saw in print the price and got it for less as it had a few hours on it.
you have the cash the builder needs to pre sell as he is tight for cash give u better deal this way.
you are in with the click and if you drive that brand boat others will want it too so builder will give deeper deal to get one out with you in it,,
a milion scenerios but bottom line i know some folks wioth big $ and they dont have it due to throwing it away.. they are generally pretty smart,,
some will become dealers so they can buy at cost and then use as demo and resell that way...
just ssome ideas. i am sure there are people with money not being an object but i think in most cases they have other ways of making it to thier benefit,, anoother spin
dealerputs in dealer inventory ? has flooring company finance it and then the business absorbs it and its just another write off against profit..
i can come up with a bunch of scenerios..
