The new boat market stinks. It's going to remain this way until the prices level out.
It's pretty darn tough to pull the trigger on a new boat when you can get a used one, in near perfect condition, for literally half price. It's always been drive it off the lot, lost a bunch of $$$ deal with new boats but right now it's beyond excessive.
With that said, 2 things are happening.... current owners aren't upgrading and potential buyers aren't buying new anyway.
In the end this will level the price out. As the supply decreases, prices will go up to a more reasonable level, and then new boats will become attractive again
