Very well built custom boats with limited numbers for sale will often be easier to sell, IMO.
BTW, Remedy's listing price was much lower this year than it was last year. People that are ready to buy are getting some great deals.

Overall, the boat market is still in the toilet and its a buyer market.

Yeah, the market still sucks.

I gave the boat away.

This is great news I am very happy for all of you owners. It breaks my heart to hear of people losing there livelyhoods. I am very fortunate, I got laid off for 7 months and was very nervous. I ended upp finding a better job than I have ever had and I have a great schedule. 4 days on and then 4 days off, not all the weekends but alot of weekdays and weekdays are great to cruise when its not busy on the lake. The best part is I only work 181 days a year and I have 3 weeks of vacation on top of that........

There are some buyers and some dreamers. That is the way it has always been.
