The people at Typhoon (Bob, Frank, Chuck) are second to none when it comes to taking care of their customers. This new move will only strengthen their ability to do even more. I have no doubt that they will do well with the new direction and will provide customers with the best service possible.

Long time customer and more importantly good friend,

That is a good question. With such an unpredictable economy it is tough to keep 1+ million dollars of "luxury items" in inventory. Having to preorder and carry that load is tough especially when you look at the fact that most people ordering a new higher end boat want to pick their own options. Then, most buyers are looking to finance and with this economy that is becoming harder to get. Car dealers have different incentives, multiple models and lease/financing which allows them to carry large inventories. The boat industry can't do that.
So what does this mean for the dealerships, I am not sure. I also don't know what this will do for the manufacturers.
One thing I have noticed is that more dealerships are ordering boats with no graphics and providing a blank canvas for the new customer. The cost and financing, well I am seeing more and more good deals on repo'ed boats so.....
Factory direct/owned dealers may be the wave of the future.
