Default Outerlimits 24?

Was reading an outerlimits ad and it said only making 24 boats this year why? Does anyone know?

Exclusivity equals high selling price. Build fewer boats than demand and keep the price up. Formula did this for years.

That number is probably not off much from the likes of Cigarette, Skater, MTI, etc. Custom boats require a lot of time.
