That isn't the new boat they are building, that is a 32. The new boat is a 36 and the 1st one is for a longtime Sunsation owner who owned an F4-700 boat and built the F4-1075 boat last year......Safe to say it is "pre-sold" especially since it is being promoted as his new boat.

Other XRT's have been delivered including one that was painted by the owner, not Mitcher T.

When people sit back and speculate at who's doing well, I don't think they take into account that the recent closure of some major dealers have put an additional damper on the bottom line (i.e. returned floored models).

I say, best of luck to all that are on that list. Will they all be here in 2-5 years? I hope so....But highly doubt it.

By the way, did you actually put Fountain on this list?? WTF?
+1

well said, big daddy!

HA! From the people on the inside I've talked to Cigarette is doing fine....I mean sh!t, they've sold 9 Marauders over the past couple years at 1million + a boat. The over seas market has kept them ahead of others for the past couple years but now the economy has hit the over seas markets as well. Things will slow but I see Cigarette pulling through the economy. On the other hand, I've heard horror stories about other brands listed on that list. Companies that have just built big new buildings or that have just recently had to take back several flooring models, I'd be worried about.

Like I said, if everyone can just cover their over head, they'll make it through.

BTW,
I stopped by "Other" last week to see how they were doing.
I see they've moved into 4th in poll
I could spread some rumors about them but probably shoudn't.
