They're a Brunswick boat now. They still have the reputation, which means a lot for resale, but I doubt they're any better than a comparable boat from another manufacturer.

Mark, no disrespect and don't take this the wrong way but you can't compare Concept to a Whaler!

13 Sport, Best boat I ever bought my kids. If you dont have a whaler in my neighborhood you are not a "real boater". They just seem to have a charm to them that is just unmistakeable. It seems everybody respects a whaler for whatever its use.

They are very well built tough as nails and hold their value and yes they are expensive. I think of it like a Volvo for the water.

My dad's GF bought an old one, early 80's I think, recently. 13' with a 35 hp on the back. It's a sweet little boat.

But for the price of the big ones, i'd get something else.
