The economy is still good and boats are selling on the high end. I think the number of lisitngs is an indication that this site is more active.

First off..........Brad it was nice meeting you at LOTO. If anyone thinks the mid to high end market is off.......I have to agree with Brad, it's doing very well, if any of you went to Destin or LOTO you would be sure of one thing..............OSO classifieds are growing and the boat market is very healthy along with OSO. There was serious hardware at both locations and a lot of new boats.

The appreciation of homes isn't going to make the "typical" 20% year-over-year gains in 2006. The only way the middle class can play the offshore boat game is if our houses continue to print money for us. Otherwise this will be a "rich only" hobby.

I totally disagree....

My boat isn't even for sale and I had a broker call me Sunday while I was at LOTO asking if I'd sell it (to which I replied, "for the right price") ----- We'll see what happens.

The broker, whom I know very well, mentioned this guy has bought 3 other boats from him and is a cash buyer.

I will say more when the deal is done. But, for now ---- I can say the key (for me) is buying the right boat for the right price, outfitted properly.

P.S. No one buys a boat hoping to make $$$$$ anyway!

here in Mi the economy sucks, and high gas prices don't help. You can not turn on a TV news show without hearing about the glut of homes on the US market, so there is no surprise it would be the same thing with boats

Another thing I notice more is high end boat owners seem to be turning them over at record speed. I am amazed that after hearing about someone spending a year or two building their dream boat within a few months of it hitting the water it is for sale and a new boat is in the works. Must be nice.................
