Ore-entering the world of new production boats, for those who intend to buy, is undoubtedly a fascinating “game” but it is not always easy to have clear ideas. In the editorial staff, we asked ourselves a question: if today a hypothetical potential owner had a budget, 70 to 270,000 euros, which would then translate roughly from 30 to 45 feet, what boat could he or she buy?
The price range is not random; it is what we might call “average” for potential buyers of a new boat. Out of this reflection came a market analysis , of which we offer here the fourth of 4 POINTS, (HERE’S THE THIRD) aimed at “unearthing” some of the best-known models currently in production among major boatyards. A sort of mini “book” of the new that you may need in preparation for the upcoming boat show season or simply to get an idea of what new boats are out there, at what price and with what features. As you will read in the next few pages, they range from small cruising boats to long sailing boats, through sporty models for use in both racing and cruising. For each we give you the latest known list prices, these are the starting cost, without accessories or extra optionals compared to the standard version of the boat, excluding VAT and transportation. Of the prices however indicative if we intend to consider its purchase.
