Default Buy a boat from China?

I thought this looked a bit weird even for eBay. Lets see what we can find wrong with this deal.

Brand New 17.7' Boat For 8 Person With Trailer Free Ship By Sea

6690.00 buy it now.

I wouldn't buy any dam thing from China, much less a boat.

Actually, there are quite a few boats made in China. Here is just an example: http://www.ocean-asia.com/ Probably the most notable is Grand Banks by American Marine, a quality built trawler from Hong Kong.

However, I'd recommend to never buy a boat from overseas without a dealer network in the good old U.S.A.

They have been making some small Glastron copies for a few years. They were trying to get me to be a dealer for them. NOT gonna happen!

Ever see how many people fit on a boat in China? Theyre probably stuffing twice that number in the heartland!
