Good points and thanks for chiming in with your obvious inside knowledge.

I don't even know anybody that could spend a mill on anything , Or know anybody that knows somebody that could buy a million dollar whatever


No prices, I guess they prequalify the person before they make up a price

It's a loophole for leasing. You go get a toy that is not offered for lease, you put down minimum $, use it and get rid of it, so you actually don't ever own it, but thats ok because the average person thinks that you do, and in 10 years the boat is basically worthless and it's somebody elses problem. You have leased something that wasn't offered for lease. It's a perfect plan, everybody walks away happy.

it made it real hard for me to buy my 1st house yrs ago haha after working in mansions for a few years, I was like wow I love these places but will never own one. there was a guy in nantucket had a multi million dollar house there a 4million sail boat it was 104ft long, for fun a 29 donzi that the 17yr old son broke everyweek a gradywhite to fish. the big boat had a crew of 8 from down under haha and we partyed every day for a week after 5 cocktail hour and we were included me and my bud. it took 5 days to change the rugs in it it would of been longer but my dad flew over to see what was up. they told us it was 2 steps that weren't finished in NY. THEN i FIND OUT ITS THE WHOLE BOAT. The biggest one I worked on was a 167ft and I got 2mons worth of steaks and high end food they change the freezer foods every 2 months I was there with 4 of my guys plus 6 others and we all ended up with months worth of steaks, roasts,tips, seafood. well getting off track here.

Everyone is an expert..
Did you bother to read the first post? He clearly stated that they had no reason to sell. LCM is out of business, that's why he's asking. Zuperman could lose 100's of millions and still afford the boat. We all know that. Be sure brain is in gear before engaging post button

I'm pretty sure BZ is building another big Skater. I am not sure what's next on the menu for MyWay.

Probably decided an OL isn't all it's cracked up to be and want to get a Fountain. Or in this case, just buy Fountain.

Thats how you read it, I read it differently. Do some research into a few facts on LCM and the boats, and why they are on that site. Bottom line, these are hard times, and what ever the reasons are for a sale, should be at the sellers discression, and not up for speculation. This thread didnt turn out like the others that I've read the past few months. It was more civil with out the sarcasm of all the oso experts on reasons of what and why the boats are for sale, and what they would or should have done to prevent the sale... like they could even hang in these guys shoe's.
