According to industry estimates, only about 400 speedboats priced at $500,000 or above were sold in the U.S. last year. Competition for that minuscule market is fierce among a dozen companies, including Donzi Marine, Formula, Fountain


yeah 500k and up fora a donzi formula or fountain.....

" In the three years since Braver bought the company, the average retail price of a Cigarette has nearly doubled, to about $400,000. And he says Cigarette has been profitable each year, though he declines to give specifics.

Ouch!
